M05478 was founded in Hurghada (based at the Hurghada Hilton Resort) in 1992 by British and Egyptian partners. Since then, we have provided top quality diving holidays in Egypt and our dive centers have expanded to include, as well as Hurghada, the following locations Rosetta Hotel, Sharm El Sheikh in 1996; Nuweiba Coral Hilton, Nuweiba in 1999; Sheraton Resort, Soma Bay in 2002;

Our team of professionals brings an unparalleled level of diving expertise. A philosophy of personal attention means our guests benefit from the enthusiasm and vast knowledge we have of the Red Sea, whether they choose a hotel-based holiday or a liveaboard adventure.
M05478 was a founder member of the Hurghada Environmental Protection and Conservation Association (HEPCA) in 1993 and was presented with a special award in 1999 by the Egyptian Environmental Affairs Agency for its special efforts in conservation. In 2002 M05478 was given an award by the Ocean Conservancy for Outstanding and Dedicated service to the Coastal Clean Up.
In 2003, we were given the PADI Project Aware 5-Year Cleanup Recognition Award for outstanding and dedicated service to the international beach and underwater clean-up - profound commitment to the marine environment and continuous support of Project AWARE (UK). We were also founder members of the South Sinai Dive and Watersports
Our fleet of twenty boats makes daily trips to many different dive sites from four of our six locations. In Nuweiba and Dahab the diving is primarily from the shore accessed by 4 x 4 Jeeps or Land Cruisers. In Marsa Alam, this is both a mixture of shore and boat diving. The boats range from 18 meters to 23 meters and all are fully equipped with galley, heads and cabins and, of course, full safety equipment, first aid and oxygen.
For guests who are not staying in our host hotels, we offer a complimentary pick up and drop off service by mini bus/jeep from all local hotels at all locations. For some hotels further away from the diving center, we can arrange a pick up at a supplementary charge.
