The Red Sea has been on the diving radar for a long time. And yet, never in all these years, has it ceased to amaze divers. No wonder – from legendary wrecks to vertiginous drop-offs, from aquarium-like dive sites perfect for beginners to challenging dives where current and sharks make for an exhilarating experience… the Red Sea has it all!

For Dune, it is the place where everything started. In 1997, Gérard Besse – dive addict and full-time adventurer at the time – decided to settle down in Safaga, a quiet fishing village south of Hurghada. He set up the first dive centre in the area, welcoming more and more guests every year. He had one motto – come as a guest, leave as a friend! 24 years later, his small dive centre has grown into a worldwide network, present in the best diving destinations – Egypt, Sudan and Djibouti, but also the Maldives, Indonesia, Mexico and France. Most importantly, the spirit has not changed – divers keep trusting Dune for their diving holidays, finding with us a perfect mix of fun and professionalism. Today, the Red Sea branch operates a beautiful day boat, three liveaboards, and is launching this autumn a fourth one – Alia.

A true jewel in the crown of Dune Red Sea, Alia has been designed by and for divers. This superb 44-metre, steel-hulled vessel accommodates 26 divers, with five-star service and a luxurious environment. Two double beds in every cabin, modern design, splendid sea-view cabins and spacious common areas – Alia brings safaris in the Red Sea to a whole new level! Come and (re)discover the wrecks and drop-offs of the North itinerary, the pristine coral gardens of the St John’s route, or rub shoulders with the sharks and drift dives of the Golden Triangle. A safari in the Red Sea is an experience to be tried at least once in a diver’s life!

Dune Red Sea


SHA’AB ABU NUHAS – This unassuming reef north of Hurghada hides an underwater wonder – four of them, to be exact. Four splendid wrecks! Meet the Giannis D and its cavernous engine room, the coral-encrusted shape of the Carnatic, and the Chrisoula K/Marcus and its cargo of tiles. And the last one? Well, only the dolphins, often seen there playing with divers, know the truth about it…
