Tourism is down at the moment with the credit crisis across the world, with this diving has been affected and i know of one big dive company lacking in customers. There may be jobs on a boat but with Egyptian labour so cheap i think you would find it difficult to find the work or not find a salary that you could live from. The knowledge of the reef's and navigation here are vital and they do not use the electronic tools and maps like you would see in England and this comes from many years working in the Hurghada area.
