Divers will find here all the varieties that the Red Sea has to offer. Take a dive on the house reef directly from our beach or visit the many dive sites nearby by boat. Morning and night dives, both from the beach and the boat, are also recommended. For advanced divers, the wrecks in the area are a must, such as the Salem Express and the Sadana from 1765.

Duiken

Duiken met Nemo Dive Club & Hotel, is duiken op ongerepte riffen...

Diving with Nemo Dive Club & Hotel is diving on pristine reefs, easy to reach from the hotel. Nemo has everything to make your stay and the dives pleasant. The dive center is located on the ground floor and is the heart of our company. The administration takes place in the office. In the associated shop you can find many useful products you may need for your holiday, from T-shirts to dive computers. The equipment room contains the well-maintained rental equipment, such as regulators, BCDs and wetsuits, as well as diving lamps and computers. The compressors, which provide 100% clean air for your dives, are also located in this room.

Coral reefs are among the richest, oldest and most complicated natural areas in the world.
Imagine: on a single reef about 200 species of coral, 300 species of fish and 10,000 to 100,000 species of invertebrates can occur. Coral reefs cover only a quarter of a percent of the sea surface. Yet 25 percent of all fish species depend on the reef. The fish find a place to live there, they give birth to their young or find their food there. Not only millions of animals (most of which are still waiting to be discovered) depend on the coral reef, but also millions of people. The reef is also a treasure trove of medicines and serves as a coastal protector. Enough reasons to be careful with it,
Corals are living organisms that can get sick. Plastics play a major role in this, as is now evident for the first time. Coral broken by plastic is injured and susceptible to diseases. These not only affect that one coral, but spread over an entire reef.

How can we help?

Reusable straws drink just as fine as plastic straws, but are so much better for the environment. You do not have to throw them away after use, you just wash them off and then use them again. Good for you and nature.
In the shop we have an extensive range of reusable straws.
People who apply sunscreen on a tropical beach are usually not aware of any harm. However, there is a risk that they will unintentionally contribute to the coral dying on the spot. Some creams contain oxybenzon, which is very toxic to coral. The substance, which absorbs UV rays, appears to be in high concentrations in water on popular beaches. Coral larvae become deformed as a result; they completely encapsulate inside their lime skeleton, as if they were making their own coffin. Adult polyps no longer grow, so the coral becomes sterile and withers away.
Don’t pollute your dives, bring a waste net.

Thank you to all who have helped us build a cleaner world

Special School Safaga

School for mentally handicapped children

In October 2010, the Egyptian government established the Safaga Special School. In addition to education, the aim is to strive for acceptance of people with a mental disability, because to this day in Egypt these persons and their families are shunned or rejected by society. Every school day, about forty children between 5 and 17 years old with mental retardation, autism and Down syndrome come to the school.

This is how Special School Safaga started…

In 2011 Sofie Deconinck and Danielle Theunissen heard about this new school and the need for extra help. The first visit to the school was shocking to them as the approach to education for disabled people in Western countries is completely different. Sofie and Danielle decided to lend a helping hand and take action. The start of a beautiful adventure…

Initially, the aid focused on furnishing the bare classrooms, providing playground equipment, sports equipment for physical exercise, etc.

This is how Special School Safaga has evolved…

Over the years, Special School Safaga and the organization expanded the children’s activities with outings, entertainment at Nemo Dive Club & Hotel and weekly recreational sessions with the kids in the classroom, taught by our volunteers, to stimulate and enhance their creativity and skills. At the initiative of Sofie, the organization started in 2014 with water therapy for some physically handicapped children from Safaga, as they are not supported either. Nemo Dive Club & Hotel offered the use of its pool for this purpose and today several children attend these weekly sessions, guided by professional therapists in kine and speech therapy. These people also treat these children in their own practices 3 times a week.

In the meantime, an organization has also emerged in collaboration with Heba and Joseph: “children from Safaga with special needs”. Here the parents and the rest of the family are also more involved.

Our goal…

By collecting funds, the schools can purchase equipment and provide financial support so that the teachers and our team of volunteers have the opportunity to continue to stimulate and activate the children. The therapies are also financed.
