Soma Bay

Soma Bay

Soma Bay is a beautiful large bay just outside of Safaga. About 45 minutes from Hurghada Airport, you will find long sandy beaches and one of the most beautiful house reefs in the Red Sea.  There are five top quality hotels, which are The Breakers, Kempinski, Sheraton, Cascades and Robinson Club on the Ras Abu Soma peninsula. Soma Bay is known for its challenging 18 hole golf course, excellent kite surfing area, its first class Spa-Hotels and of course for its great reef. The reef of Ras Abu Soma is so spectacular safari ships will stop occasionally.

The diving centre

The Orca Dive Club Soma Bay is located at the 4-star hotel The Breakers Lodge. A modern Lifestyle hotel especially made for passionate divers and kite surfer.

From the diving center, over the 420 meter long Jetty you will be able to directly enjoy the drop-off reef at Ras Abu Soma.

The dive center includes a generous Open-Air Area, a reception for your check-in (open daily from 08.00-18.00), classrooms, divers bar with a stunning view over the beach and jetty, several dry rooms and a Shop for the important diving utensils and Souvenirs.

House reef, diving boats and diving destinations

The house reef promises spectacular dives. Non Limit diving from 06.00-21.00 is possible. You and your equipment will be driven with our eco friendly electro cars to the end of the 420 meter long jetty, so you are energized for your dive in our beautiful house reef.

5 Minutes drive away you find the marina where full day and half day boats and speedboats for closer dive sites like Tobia reefs or Drift Dive along the House reef, are waiting to take you to other reefs around Safaga.
