Year Round

Climate

Mediterranean Wet, to Dry, to Cold (Depending on Location and Time)

Language

Arabic, but tourism has lead to several others being available.

Health and Safety

The situation has settled in Egypt, but there’s still a chance of violent protest at any time. That said, around dive sites and out of cities you’ll typically be safe. Ignore aggressive vendors and they’ll leave you alone.

Be Aware

The security situation in Egypt can change day to day. While you’ll likely be fine, keep an eye on the situation before you go.

Costs

You can find something for every taste in Egypt, from hostels for the frugal traveler to hotel rooms that are basically palaces. A single boat dive can run around $70USD, but you can also get a three day tour for $250USD. It depends on the diver.
