New advertising campaign for Oonas Dive Club one of the longest established dive centers in Na'ama Bay Sharm el-Sheikh.
For many years we proved to be a popular choice for diving and non-diving guests who seek friendly, informal, yet professional and safe environment on the shore of the Red Sea . The Club's superb Sinai beach location with its palm trees and sun-lounges is situated at the northern end of the Bay. Its unique atmosphere is created by the combined accommodation, dive centre, restaurant and bar. Oonas is a very popular and lively meeting point and is an ideal place to unwind after a great day's diving.

Dolphins all around our UK coast are being killed at an alarming rate, and it is this website's mission to help stop the needless killing of these beautiful creatures. But we need your help to help stop the deaths of Hundreds of dolphins around our coasts.
