Ilios Dive Club - One with the Red Sea

The Steigenberger Al Dau Resort, Red Sea, Hurghada is the home of Ilios Dive Club. On an area of 360m² we are offering everything diver, skin diver and those going to be need to have a perfect holiday. Due to over 20 years of experience in the professional management of a dive centre we guarantee our guests wonderful dives in the Red Sea.

High standards and professionalism are for us the basics to feel comfortable. The dive centre is equipped with two multimedia classrooms, two big guest equipment rooms, workshop, filling station (Nitrox panel available), wheelchair accessible guest toilettes and showers and a very big rinsing area. Ilios DC is directly at the beach with our own marina in front, which allows diving and boat trips in a most comfortable way.

Two private diving yachts (Al Dau 1+2) assure perfect comfort, delicious food and everything to feel relaxed on board. Certainly the whole centre is done border free, as we are already since 1992 specialized in teaching diving to people with disability.

Ilios Dive Club is offering the full program; divers and non divers need to spend relaxing holidays, such as intro dives, daily diving and snorkelling tours to the beautiful dive spots of the Red Sea. Our PADI dive school offers courses from beginner up to professional. For sure we offer live aboard safaris, diving packages and special offers for groups as well.

Jump into the adventure - get diving with Ilios Dive Club!

We had two dives, the crew on the boat were very good it was just the price and extras that let it down. A lot more expensive than the rest of the diving trips in the area and the fact that you had to pay for lunch and drinks on top. Then there was the joke of the photos £50... More

Great value fantastic discounts for hotel customers when compared to other companies that use the same dive sites and charge £100 more! Brilliant service Pascal my instructor was knowledgable, patient and very funny, he was super organised and made learning fun and broke everything down so it was manageable and easy to understand. I just completed my open water with... More

Higly organised center. Prebooking is easy. Well trained diverse dive instructors. Wonderful dive sites. The boat crew very helpful and polite. The manager Mr. Magdy is a remarkable man. German, English and arabic are commonly used languages. The only thing I wish for is to have regular 3 dives on day trips rather than just 2 dives

Whilst staying at the Steigenberger Al Dau Resort I had the pleasure of doing 5 Diving day trips with the Ilios Dive Club. The boats are nice and it was good to have a ladder on the back of the boat for getting out of the water rather than a pole with the arms on. The crew and staff are... More

I had the opportunity to visit 3 wrecks in 2 days. Two of them were very far from Hurghada (Chrisoula K and Giannis D) while the other was very close to the shore (EL Minya). The read sea is already impressive but the guys knew very good spots. I fell in love with El Fanadir and, especially, the Dolphin house... More
