Hurghada City is the capital of Red Sea Region and one of the most important scuba-diving tourist destinations around the world. Located on the western coast of the Red Sea, 500km from Cairo, it stretches for about 36 kilometres along the seashore. Hurghada is bordered by Ras Gareb to the north, Safaga to the south, the Red Sea coast to the east and Sohag and Assyut regions to the west.

Since the 1980s Hurghada has grown from a small fishing village to an internationally renowned resort town on the Red Sea region . It has become an international center for aquatic sports like windsurfing, sailing, deep-sea fishing, swimming, and above all snorkeling and diving. The unique underwater gardens offshore are some of the finest in the world, justifiably famous amongst divers. Hurghada’s warm waters are ideal for many varieties of rare fish and coral reefs, which may also be observed through glass bottom boats.for more details.

The water conditions of the Red Sea have helped to nourish more than 1200 species of fish, of which about 10% are native only to the Red Sea. These fish are supported by about 2000 km (1240 mi) of coral reefs along the coast, some as old as 5000 – 7000 years old. Among these reefs can also be found dolphins, turtles, and approximately 44 species of sharks. Though there are a few species that are harmful to humans, most species are actually harmless.
