Last week I wanted to do something new, crazy, different and adventurous, also wanted to test my Videography Skills, so I travelled to Marsa Alam Egypt with a best friend of mine and we decided to do our first Scuba Diving Ever !
When it comes to scuba diving; Marsa Alam is the newest Scuba Diving destination of the Red Sea in Egypt. It offers excellent chances to spot Dolphins, the very rare Dugongs, and green sea turtles, also its is the best gateway for exploring the wonders of the South Red Sea with famous dive sites such as Blue Ocean Diving Center or the Dolphin House
The marine life is amazing and most of the dive sites are still unspoiled with pristine reefs and excellent coral. If you are tired of the crowded dive sites of Sharm El Sheikh or Hurghada, this is a good spot for you.
Abu Dabbab is the most popular dive site of the area. It is one of the few places in the world where you can dive with the very rare and endangered Dugongs! This shallow bay is also home to many big Green Sea Turtles.
The rare guitar shark can also be found in Abu Dabbab. This is an excellent spot for underwater photography and videography, the place is a popular snorkelling spot too, so we didn’t miss this chance, we wore the diving suits and stared our diving session and created my first underwater video with such an excellent action camera GoPro Hero 4 BLACK which really served us so well as a beginner divers and underwater videographers.
