Roots Red Sea return to the Dive Show!

Discover peace and tranquility in Egypt’s Eastern Desert and its amazing Red Sea.

Roots Red Sea is a small, friendly resort aimed at scuba divers, snorkellers and those who want a quiet, peaceful, relaxed atmosphere but with the convenience of having the small traditional town of El Quseir on its doorstep. The tag as a camp should not be taken too literally; it relates more to the location than the outstanding accommodations with modern facilities.


Roots Red Sea is situated in Africa on the edge of the Eastern Desert next to the Red Sea, 80 kilometres south of Safaga and 14 kilometres north of El Quseir.


Roots Red Sea is managed by British owned and run Pharaoh Dive Club who have an unsurpassed reputation for friendly helpful staff delivering great personal service. Owners Steve and Clare have vast experience of the Red Sea having been working the region for over 25 years.


Their simple mantra is to deliver the holiday the guest wants and treat everyone the way they would liked to be treated themselves; its is certainly a winning formula. There is a distinct no problem attitude and nothing is too much trouble for the team.

O’Three to feature at the dive show

As a company with an international reputation for quality and customer care, that we are told is second to none, we fully understand our obligation to you, our customer.

Each suit is manufactured to an established procedure that we have developed and evolved over the years.

With our experienced dedicated team, O’Three has grown into a respected Dry Suit and Wet Suit manufacturer and is an “established market leader”, putting quality neoprene innovation and service at the very core of everything we do.

From the very beginning, it was our strong belief that O’Three would be about exceptional quality and customer care.  Simple really, and still our main aim.

To build a solid business you cannot have one without the other.  This approach takes time, but with stubborn conviction those two core values have become inextricably linked and are at the bedrock of O’Three’s success.

Our Environment

Portland is a limestone tied island on the Dorset coast in the United Kingdom and is the home of O’Three Ltd.

We are surrounded by water and the Jurassic Coast.

There are not many places that have a more diverse geology above and below the water.

It is this harsh environment that has shaped Portland and has had a major influence on the way we design and build our suits.
