The Trip

The Red Sea offers some of the most exhilarating scuba diving in the world. From World War Two wrecks and vibrant protected reefs to some of the world's largest pelagics, this itinerary does not disappoint. In the Red Sea, you'll need to think BIG diving alongside whale sharks, thresher sharks, schooling hammerheads, and gigantic schools of black-tip snapper. Egypt's offshore islands were protected as marine parks in 1983 leaving the islands untouched by development for over 30 years. There's a reason the Red Sea is a popular scuba diving destination. Action-packed dives, walls covered in mammoth corals, and an impressive amount of marine life.
