Makadi Bay has become known as a top scuba diving location on the Red Sea, and Diving Ocean dive center offers training, facilities and staff ready to help visitors experience the colorful underwater life. Some of the marine animals that can be spotted include lion fish, moray eels, squid, barracuda, mackerel, white-tip reef sharks and even hammerhead sharks. Of course, hundreds of unique species of tropical fish are visible on any dive. Sea turtles can also be seen occasionally.
Dives can take place from the shoreline near the center or from one of the zodiac boats out on the open water. Some of the best dive sites in the Hurghada and Safaga area, including Gota Abu Ramada, Abu Hashish and Ras Abu Soma, are best accessed from Makadi Bay. The largest marine reef of the area is located right off the shore of Diving Ocean.
Diving Ocean dive center is located within Primalife, a five-star resort on Makadi Bay, about 18.6 miles (30 km) south of the Hurghada International Airport. Full scuba diving equipment and instruction are available. In addition to individual dives and multiday dive packages, half-day and full-day boat trips are offered daily.
