Egypt holidays 'are ideal for underwater activities'
a href="http://www.adventurecompany.co.uk/country-overview.aspx?productid=34526" target="_self">Egypt holidays could be a good opportunity for travellers to engage in swimming and snorkelling, according to the British Sub-Aqua Club.
Marketing and membership manager at the organisation Alison Dando cited the Red Sea as one of the best international locations for underwater adventure.
She pointed out that the north African destination is only a short flight away from the UK and can be reached within three to five hours.
"Within that short period of time ... you are on beautiful aqua marine coral reefs with fantastic marine life," Ms Dando remarked.
She explained that the larger shallow-water areas are a haven for sharks and turtles, adding: "It's a very popular destination."
Travellers who are tempted to follow her advice and book a family adventure holiday to Egypt may like to consider Adventure Company's Feluccas & Pharaohs Family Holiday.
It offers the chance to go snorkelling and swimming in the Red Sea and also includes a trip to Cairo's Egyptian Museum to see ancient artefacts like Tutankhamun's gold mask.
