Renowned for its excellent visibility and stunning soft corals, the Red Sea is one of the world’s most popular scuba diving destinations. It boasts more than 1,000 species of fish (20% of which are endemic) and is scattered with wrecks
that have evolved into a vibrant marine playground. Egypt’s sunny climate and desert landscapes have resulted in a marine paradise that makes the Red Sea an ideal liveboard vacation destination.
Water temperatures in the Red Sea range from around 74-84°F (23-28°C), with most divers comfortable in a 3mm wetsuit during the summer months and a 5mm wetsuit in the winter, keeping in mind you may be doing up to five dives each day. The Brothers itinerary does not include night diving but the Southern Route does when possible.
The majority of the dives on the Southern Route are from the mothership, although some are made from the Red Sea Aggressor skiffs, which can carry up to 10 guests. The Red Sea Aggressor provides 12 liter aluminum tanks (both K-valves (American type) and DIN (International) valves), weight belts and weights, with a full line of Aqualung rental gear available.
Dive computers are mandatory and it’s recommended that guests bring safety items such as safety sausages and Nautilus Lifelines. Nitrox is available for a surcharge and there is plenty of storage space for diving equipment on board this Red Sea liveaboard.
Divers can opt to pick a buddy of their choice or dive with one of the crew members, keeping in mind that the Red Sea Aggressor does not offer direct supervision of divers. Every dive begins with a comprehensive briefing from one of the crew and all diving must be done within the limits of your certification and no planned decompression dives. Crew will be on deck to provide surface support for divers and to assist with critter spotting underwater.
A range of specialty courses are offered on board the Red Sea Aggressor, including Advanced Open Water, UW Photography and Nitrox, while the Photo Pro is available to capture your diving adventure.
