I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Adel Taher on many occasions either during one of his seminars or during social events for divers.
I still haven’t met any diving professional or even a diver in Egypt who doesn’t know Dr. Adel and the amazing work.
Dr. Adel is the proud owner and manager of the Hyperbaric Medical Center in Sharm El Sheik. This centre recently celebrated 25 years, open 24 hours a day for 25 years serving divers.
The International Scuba Diving Hall of Fame has announced the names of four new members who will be inducted into the hall of fame this year. One of the four Inductees this year is Dr. Adel; he will join fellow dive industry pioneers who have helped cultivate and revolutionize the sport of scuba diving.
Dr Adel is considered one of the world’s top experts in hyperbaric medicine, Dr. Adel Mohamed Taher is best known for establishing the most sophisticated diving medical facility in the Red Sea, which continues to provide a foundation of safety for the expanding dive tourism industry in the region and beyond.
As a PADI Open Water Scuba Instructor since 1982, Dr. Taher has played a vital role in promoting diver safety in the Red Sea region by managing diving emergencies, participating in medical research projects and conferences, and acting as an adviser for governmental and non-governmental agencies.
On behalf of all divers and dive professionals in Egypt, I would like to thank you Dr. Adel
