Guide to 101 most popular dive sites of the Red Sea is an iPad reference for the dive sites of Hurghada, El Gouna and Safaga.
A number of the team at synthaeum have a great passion for Scuba diving. Last year whilst on a liveaboard they were lucky enough to meet a brilliant guide and photographer, Dray van Beeck.

A couple of the team took Dray's underwater photography course and with the help of photoshop for small changes there were immediate improvements in their images. Dray is a master in the water and behind the camera, with so much great content, hints tips and ideas on all sorts of things aquatic we thought it would be a great idea to make them available to everyone, where ever they may be, in the most portable methods possible.
