Daily Boat Diving
Oonas Dive Club owns two boats. Diving from our boats takes place everyday. Both our boats are large day cruisers with spacious sun decks, saloon area, galley, toilets and purpose designed dive decks. The daily itinerary for our boats alternates between a wide variety of sites in the world famous Ras Mohammed National Park, the Straits of Tiran and other local sites up and down the South Sinai coast. We choose to keep our groups on our boats small which creates a more intimate and friendly environment between guides, guests & crews.
Our guides try to avoid large numbers of boats and divers, which means our guests enjoy a more relaxed dive with a better chance of an encounter with larger marine life.
A typical day out on one of our boats will start between 8 and 9 am. The first dive is made in the morning; a buffet lunch is then served followed by a further dive in the afternoon. We generally return at around 4pm for a spot of ‘après dive’ back at the Dive Centre.

Snorkelers and non-diving passengers
Snorkelers and non-diving passengers are very welcome to join our dive boats, there is plenty of space to relax, sunbathe and watch the amazing scenery of the South Sinia pass by. Our guides will be happy to make suggestions for the best snorkeling experience on the wonderful coral gardens and shallow reef plates which surround most of our dive sites. Snorkelling equipment can be rented from the dive centre if required.
As well as our standard daily boat diving, there are many opportunities for additional diving activities such as third dives, visits to the wreck of the Dunraven, Night Dives either on our House Reef or from our boats or a trip to one of the most famous wrecks in the world, the SS Thistlegorm.
You may also wish to consider hiring a private guide for the day for an even more personalised experience.
