<font color='#000080'>Hi All,

I'm off to the Grand Oasis at Sharks bay, Sharm in November any experiences on the place would be much appreciated please, also there is a dive centre in the hotel has anyone used it?

Thanks in advance.

Safe diving,
Steve.

Never stayed in the hotel, but Sharks Bay is utterly fantastic. Comparatively quiet beach, owned by the Bedoiun rather than some hotel chain, fantastic snorkelling round the reef wall - even seen an eagle ray here while snorkelling. Gangs of lionfish round the jetty - worth a visit towards evening to watch them working as a team to round up shoals of fry. Reef platform unsurprisingly very kicked, but go round the edge and the coral formations and colours are totally gorgeous. Great fish restaurant on the beach - again, bedouin owned , so  no beer. Chill out and drink the mint tea while looking out over the bay.

<font color='#FF0000'>dived shark bay last year, its a great shore dive, nice shelf, got a drop off to about 18m i think, got a 2 hour dive on this [email protected], saw an eagle ray too, although the try-divers with us saw a manta on the other side of the bay to the jetty. if i remember correctly, the jetty is where it drops to about 18m, it gently slopes off a little deeper than that. got some photos of the area, if i can get to a scanner ill post some

sorry, i dont have any info on the hotel

<font color='#FF0000'>sorry, forgot to mention dive centres, i dived with Anthias Divers in the Sonesta Beach Resort, dived the straights of tiran, ras mohamed, the thistlegorm, and even dahab, which was quite a journey! The Sonesta Beach is at the sme end as the casino

otherwise, theres a million other dive centres in sharm, more dive centres than hotels id guess!
