Marsa Shagra diving trip to Egypt with Magnus Lundgren
Unlimited shore diving in the Red Sea
October 21 - 28, 2024

Diving in the Red Sea, freedom and vacation
Marsa Shagra on the coast of the Red Sea offers a unique opportunity to dive directly from land at a house reef that has been a marine reserve for a long time. Here you will live directly on the coast, enjoy full board, relaxation and do lots of nice dives right out on the house reef. A fantastic place for those who film or photograph and really want to practice and try new challenges. Trips by boat out to reefs in the sea are also offered and one place to visit is of course the famous Elphinstone reef which often offers encounters with the fantastically beautiful white shark.

Your accommodation
We have managed to get accommodation here in Marsa Shagra, even though it is extremely fully booked during the autumn. We have two different categories of accommodation, Chalets and Royal Tent. Here you live comfortably and well in direct connection to the sea, close to restaurants and diving centers. Full board is offered and it is a fantastic feeling to sleep in the tents and experience the silence as darkness falls over the desert on the coast to the mighty Red Sea.

At meals you will enjoy really good food, talk about the day's experiences and get tips and ideas on what to look at and look for the next dive. Marsa Shagra dive camp is a bit of an institution and the house reef has been a protected marine park for many many years. 

Your ambassador: Magnus Lundgren is a recognized amazing underwater photographer with advanced placements in competitions and with images published all over the world. Magnus' unique ability to entertain and make you and the gang that dives feel comfortable and at the same time develop as divers is one of the many reasons that many people go on our diving trips where Magnus is a part. For those who want to learn more about UV photography, get unique tips and advice or suggestions for equipment for your camera rig, Magnus is perfect to play with.

Accommodation and diving in Marsa Shagra

Marsa Shagra Dive camp offers several different types of accommodation and is located directly on the coast of the Red Sea. Here you will stay in a Chalet or a great Royal tent for a week and at the same time dive a lot, relax and socialize with other divers. At the diving camp, you have full board, so you don't have to think about food and even certain drinks (coffee, tea, water and soft drinks) are included in your accommodation.

The diving takes place directly at the beach and is easy and suitable for everyone. You control when and how you want to dive and here you have access to the wonderful marine life and colors of the reef. Here you will see lots of beautiful, strange and colorful fish and other marine life. For those who want to experience slightly larger animals, you have the opportunity to go by boat to some of the outer reefs, where the possibility of meeting different species of shark is very good. The beautiful fin shark is common out at the Elphinstone reef and hammerhead sharks, manta rays, whale sharks and various reef sharks are also seen here regularly.

Contact us to come along on this exciting diving trip. The Red Sea and Marsa Shagra is a unique opportunity to enjoy your diving without stress and to fit the times and at the same time have time to experience the marine life on your own.
