Rolf Schmidt and Petra Roeglin


Rolf Schmidt and Petra Roeglin dove the Red Sea in Oct 1974 for
the first time. It was a trip organized by the local Dive Club in their
home town in Germany.

Both of them were born in Germany, Rolf grew up and went to school in his home town. Petra spent her childhood in Venezuela this is where she developed her love for the oceans.

Rolf moved to the Red Sea in 1975 and Petra followed. Sharm el
Sheikh became their home. They organized the first regular diving
tours, traveling along the Sinai coast diving and exploring dive sites
no one else dived before. By 1977 they had established their first
small diving center in Sharm el Sheikh.

They established Sinai Divers in one of the first Egyptian Hotels built in Sharm el Sheikh. At the same time the construction of the luxurious Ghazala I, the first Live- aboard dive vessel in the Egyptian Red Sea.

A second boat, Ghazala Voyager, would follow a few years later. Over the years Sinai Divers expended and today there are a total of six Dive Centers and a small 50 room Dive Resort.

Despite all the difficulties they had to overcome while living and
working in the Middle East they never considered even once to leave.
Sinai and the Red Sea is their home and first love.
