Our tanks are done for both systems INT or DIN. Please let us know during check in if you are diving with the INT system.
The water temperature of the Red Sea is never below 20°C. So even in winter time (January - April) a 5mm suit is enough. In summertime the water temperature goes up to 28°C, so most of the people dive in 3mm or even a shorty.
Transporting an under water torchlight is generally permitted. Please disconnect the bulb from the lamp. Most of the airlines will ask you to do so and to carry the lamp in you hand luggage. The best is to check with you airline in advance.
Please don´t forget your diving license and logbook. PADI and SSI certified divers we are able to check online for their license as well. It would be good to have a current medical statement.
Yes please. If you do not have a valid medical statement for scuba diving with you we will have to ask you to fill a medical statement for us. If you have to answer one of the questions with positive, we will have to send you to a diving physician here in Hurghada. The price for a medical check up at Hypermed, the local recompression chamber is app. 60€.
Ilios Dive Club is directly located at the beach of Steigenberger ALDAU Resort, so if you are staying in the resort you will just walk down to the beach in the morning. If you are staying in another hotel or resort we will pick you up in the morning and drop you off in the afternoon.

Steigenberger ALDAU Resort is directly located at the pedestrian area. You could go walking about 6 km. It is surrounded by shops, caffée's and bars where you could have a rest in between. Employees of the shops might try to convince you to come to their shop, but if you let them know that you have no interest they will not bother you.
It is quite normal with the change in temperature, atmosphere, food and surroundings for some people to have the odd tummy problem for a day or so. It is a good idea to take your own medication for this just in case, but there is also pharmacies with good medication everywhere in Hurghada. As well there is a medical service in Steigenberger ALDAU Resort.
Yes, security checks are taking longer and therefore airline check-in desks are closing earlier.
There has been no problems in Hurghada over the last years. It was quiet all the time and there was never a shortage of food or fuel. We did not feel unsafe since February 2011.
Your passport has to be still valid for at least six month the day you are leaving Egypt again. Your Visa you will get at the airport before entering the country. Either your tour operator will take care about it or you will have to buy a visa stamp at one of the money exchange counters and stick it on an empty page in your passport.
It would be very nice of you. If you have been satisfied with the services, the staff will be very happy , if you will leave some tip for them.
