Diving to resume in Sharm El Sheikh tomorrow

Beaches are set to reopen and diving and watersports activities are expected to resume in Sharm El Sheikh tomorrow, according to diving authority the Chamber of Diving and Watersports (CWDS). CWDS has warned that although snorkelling will still be banned following the recent shark attacks, marine biologists have deemed the waters safe for guests to dive in. Meanwhile, Red Sea Holidays has reassured agents that customers are safe in Sharm El Sheikh’s diving spots. The tour operator has updated its Facebook page and TIPTO with information regarding the affected resorts, as well as ringing agents directly. Activity and communication has also been increased in resort. “We are obviously regretful of the situation and our sympathy is extended to those who have been affected. However we want our customers to carry on enjoying their holiday,” explained Peter Kearns, managing director of Red Sea Holidays. “We are offering increased excursions, doubling the contact between reps and customers and advising new customers to book the larger resort style hotels with multiple pools and on site activities.” He said reps and customers currently inside resorts have also been updated and given ‘clear, transparent information’.
