Direct and convenient access via the new jetty


At the Baron Palace’s long, well-kept sandy beach, you enter the water via the 110 m long wooden jetty.

The diving area “Um Hasheesh” stretches to both sides and has many smaller and larger reef blocks that are full of marine life.

These can be found distributed in diving depths from 2 to 14 metres in the area of more than 6000 m² investigated so far.

Between the coral blocks are seagrass meadows and sandy bottom. The diving area is so large and varied that you can easily do up to 10 dives in the bay without getting “bored”.

The steel cylinders are of course taken to the end of the jetty, where divers comfortably enter from the stairs.

Our house reefs at the Baron Palace


Especially floating over the wide seagrass meadows and dunes is a very special diving experience and creates a unique atmosphere.

On the search for the small and shy inhabitants of this special underwater landscape, the experienced eye will find many worthwhile delicacies.

Seahorses, many young fish, snails, squids and many types of coral provide variety and are particularly suitable as photo motifs.

Due to the orientation lines laid by SUBEX, the “Um Hasheesh” area is also ideally suited for “unguided” dives (depending on the diving experience).

Also sundowner and early morning dives (of course without surcharge) with their special light conditions and creatures are among our offers.

Daily boat trips extend the program

Boat diving in Sahl Hasheesh


For divers who want more area variety or prefer greater diving depths, we also offer the diving program of the base in Hurghada El Dahar from the Baron Palace.

The transfer from the hotel to the harbour is included at the boat exit and starts at 7:15 in the morning, the boat leaves the marina at 08:00 o’clock.

Because of this early start time we are often the first and only divers at the morning dive site.

The selection of areas – as far as wind and waves allow it – is always made according to the experience and wishes of our guests.

There are cliffs, wrecks and many different reefs that we reach with our own dive boats.
