Jacques Cousteau once said; “The Red Sea is a corridor of marvels. The happiest hours of my diving experience have been spent there”. That statement is as true today as it was when Jacques Cousteau explored here in the 1950’s. Many divers spend many happy hours diving the Egyptian Red Sea, whether it’s the Tiran Reefs, the SS Thistlegorm in the north, the Brother Islands in the central Red Sea or the huge reefs of St John’s and Elphinstone in the deep south.
An almost landlocked body of water, the Red Sea is accessible from Egypt and is a diver’s dream. The common start-off points for liveaboards doing northern itineraries is Safaga and Hurghada, and Port Ghalib/Marsa Alam and Safaga for liveaboards doing the southern Red Sea. 7 night Cruise and Stay packages combining resort based day trips and 3 night liveaboard trips are availalbe from Sharm el Sheikh. Dive the walls and reefs of the Ras Mohammed Marine Park and Tiran Islands. Immerse yourself in a unique piece of World War II history with the SS Thistlegorm and sister ship Rosalie Moller. Explore exquisite sites such as St. Johns, Elphinstone, Daedalus Reef plus the Brothers Islands shouldn’t be missed.
“Egypt and The Red Sea should be on every diver’s list. With such a rich combination of ancient Egyptian history and great diving being both accessible and abundant, this is one destination that should not be missed”. (Brian Miller about a recent trip to Egypt)
