You’ll spend 7 nights aboard the Emperor Superior diving the Northern Red Sea, roundtrip Hurghada. Sheer colorful walls carpeted in a rich growth of hard, soft and gorgonian corals and large pelagics such as tuna, manta rays, barracudas as well as grey reef, silky and white tip reef sharks are the norm here. Plus enjoy the Red Sea’s first marine park Ras Mohamed, as well as several WWII wrecks – including the stunning Thistlegorm wreck (no wreck diving certification required).
The trip starts out exploring the topside highlights of Egypt: first the Pyramids & Sphinx in Cairo, as well as the world-renowned Egyptian Museum of Antiquities. Then you’ll enjoy 7 nights onboard the liveaboard, followed by a Nile Cruise onboard Aggressor’s Nile Queen. Let history pass by as you sit on the top deck enjoying a cup of tea. Explore amazing sites such as the Valley of the Kings and many other historical sites.
The full package is limited to 16 participants, but there is an alternate option for sightseeing in Luxor should you not be able to join the Nile Cruise.
