Our Story

Blue Ocean Dive Centers & Resorts is the brainchild of a passionate team of travel experts. In 2003, tourism shifted slightly towards Marsa Alam, coinciding with the opening of the airport. Khaled Hamed, a captain on his own leisure boat, followed the action and moved lock, stock and barrel from Hurghada to Marsa Alam. Roaming the area, he offered his touristic services to the few hotels around at that time. Starting up with a small team, they took care of reservations, bookings, transport and guiding as a true self-independent team of pioneers. The Dolphin House, Elphinstone Reef, Om Halhalla and Abu Dabbab became their second home. Daily welcoming people from around the globe, learning from other cultures, educating and entertaining divers and snorkelers, as always making new friends.

about us

We Are Where The Action Is!

Blue Ocean launched its first diving center and eco-resort in Marsa Abu Dabbab Bay, located 35km north of Marsa Alam. This valuable nature reserve, one of Red Sea’s leading attractions, is famously known as ‘the turtles bay’. Our modern speedboats roam in search of residential turtles and rare dugongs on request. Blue Ocean also organizes speedboat trips from Abu Dabbab to nearby offshore dive destinations, such as the amazing reefs of Elphinstone, Shaab Abu Dabbab 1, Marsa Shoona, Marsa Egla, the Garden Reef and Om Halhalla. These days, Blue Ocean’s diving centers are hosted by outstanding resorts in the Red Sea. Blue Ocean centers are located in Abu Dabbab Beach, Hilton Nubian Marsa Alam and the Old Palace Resort in Sahl Hasheesh, near Hurghada International Airport.
