Hi, you have to take lessons to learn to dive, there are several different agencies with the largest and most recognised being PADI & BSAC.

Padi offer different course's aimed at obtaining the different licenses, the first for a person over 12 is Discover Scuba Diving or Open Water, the latter allowing you to dive to 18 metres, this is sufficient for diving most of the shallow reefs in the Red Sea.

You then can progress onto Advanced Open Water, Rescue Diver, Dive Master and so on.

Should you need any more help just ask
