Utopia is blessed with an abundance of stunning dive sites within easy reach from our underwater experts, the Euro Divers DiveCenter™.
Whether taking a shore entry or Zodiac/boat trip, you will experience the best that the Red Sea has to offer and still be home in time for a sundowner drink at the Diver’s Bar.
Protecting our reef goes without saying. In order to provide an easy, yet reef-friendly access from the beach area, we have established enter and exits areas and marked them clearly so that snorkeling and diving enthusiasts know where not to step onto and help us protecting the reef area.
House Reef North: … is both, a dive and snorkel site, and is accessible directly from Utopia’s beach, about 150m north of the dive center. The maximum depth is 30m, which is a perfect diving location for beginners, and it will already prove an abundance of fish and other marine life. As this site is often visited by dolphins as well as napoleon fish, batfish, anglerfish, clownfish, there are also Zodiac trips on offer.
House Reef South: … is a dive as well as snorkel site and also accessible directly from Utopia’s beach, right in front of the dive center. The maximum depth is also 30m and again well-suited for beginners. An abundance of fish and other marine life will open up under water. As this site is often visited by dolphins as well as napoleon fish, batfish, frogfish, anglerfish, clownfish, there are also Zodiac trips on offer.
Shaab el Kenz: … is a dive site about 5 minutes north by Zodiac. Offered as a drift dive (The Zodiac will pick you up at the end of the dive.), it is not suitable for beginners. With a maximum depth of 30m, a real treasure will be revealed under water with stunning coral and reef formations. Bigger marine life is often seen here (e.g. dolphins, sharks, manta rays). Please note that it is not suitable for snorkeling.
