Located within walking distance of the Sifawy Boutique Hotel Extra Divers is operated by German dive tour operators Extra Divers Worldwide and will offer guests and visitors unforgettable dives to nearby sites such as the Munassir wreck and Fahal Islands as well as the reefs at Ras Abu Daoud.

'The new dive centre at Jebel Sifah offers residents guests and visitors a host of exciting underwater adventures for both  novice and experienced and the opportunity to take part in water sports as part of their stay at the destination.
