Tunisia Dive Sites - What to Expect

As Tunisian water sports grow in popularity scuba diving schools have become an increasing sight along the coastline, with Djerba, Monastir, Hergla and Hammamet offering a range of dives and underwater wrecks

Situated in North Africa, with a long swathe of coast line skirted by the Mediterranean Sea, Tunisia is a popular tourist destination with a varied climate that attracts people all year round. From the temperate north side to the semiarid south where visitors can enjoy views of the Sahara desert, this destination is well known for its dive sites and underwater seascapes.

As Tunisian water sports grow in popularity scuba diving schools have become an increasing sight along the coastline, with Djerba, Monastir, Hergla and Hammamet offering a range of dives and underwater wrecks.

However if you`re looking to start out there are a number of areas specifically `created for tourists` and that provide a good place for novice divers. For just that starting place why not try Port El Kantaoui where you`ll find dive sights, a harbour, cobblestone streets and an attractive beach that offers an scenic background for a diving holiday.

Whilst some sites can be reached with a simple walk down the beach others require a boat to take visitors out to deeper waters. If needed divers can hire equipment and transport to visit more unusual dives, whilst tuition is often on offer for beginners.

Once you`ve got your kit sorted why not head to the island of Djerba, known for its underwater caves and many colourful varieties of fish. Take the ferry or fly in to the international airport. Equipment can be hired at local dive centres but it`s worth checking before you travel.

Hergla is an alternative dive location located in a picturesque small town and boasting an equally diverse marine life. With colourful aquatic fauna and many varieties of fish both novice and experienced divers will enjoy their time exploring this underwater world.

For the more adventurous diver, Hammamet provides a wide variety of marine life combined with shipwrecks from the Second World War. Explore these wrecks alongside sunken jeeps, motorbikes and other equipment still clearly recognisable under the surface. Experienced divers might also enjoy a trip to Tabarka, a dive site with an interesting wreck and strong currents that keep the water clear and free of silt. Here you will find shoals of fish, starfish, wrasse and sea urchins. Although Tunisia is a relatively small African nation the distances between the best dive sites in Tunisia may mean a bit more travel if you want to visit as many as possible. However, plan ahead and you`ll be able to get to your favourites with enough time to explore a few more tourist attractions above sea level. Tunisia has much to offer both sub-aqua and on dry land so you may need multiple hotel locations. Or you may decide to opt for one single, luxury hotel, which, although beautiful and well appointed, doesn`t have to cost the Earth. To browse hotels best suited to your budget and holiday needs take a look at SecretHotels.org and make your diving holiday a more simple and organised affair. Why not book a hotel close to a diving school, along the coast line or with easy access to snorkelling and boat trips out to dive sites. Whatever your location, Tunisia will offer a unique and memorable location to expand or begin your diving experiences.
