The other operation is our diving centre Pioneer Divers at Kahramana Resort / Amaraya Club Resort / Calimera Habiba Beach Resort (Marsa Alam). Our main objective is to offer quality diving and to concentrate on an environmental friendly setup with special attention to the protection of the outstanding coral formations of the area. We constantly readjust our operation to the needs of our guests.
Red Sea Diving Safari is run by some remarkable pioneers. Hossam Helmy, the owner, is a lawyer and is the logistics coordinator. In the eighties he dedicated himself and his team to discover the, at that time, unknown reefs on the coastline. The team conducted the most extensive survey of the fringing reef and offshore reef topography along the 350 km coast between Safaga and Ras Banas. The team consisted of qualified PADI, SSI, IDEA and CMAS instructors and guides of different nationalities and with many years of diving experience in the Red Sea, sometimes leading back to the early eighties, when the Red Sea was still in the beginning of being discovered for sports-diving. During the over 15 years of existence, Red Sea Diving Safari has constantly reviewed its services to suit our clients’ requirements
