Marine Life

  • Egypt reefs are home to over 1000 fish species, 20% of which are endemic to the Red Sea. With a varied topography, stunning wrecks, and incredible marine life, Egypt caters to all levels of divers. Get ready to drift dive on dramatic walls and pinnacles.

  • If you go South, you’ll see some exciting pelagic life with thresher sharks, oceanic whitetips, and some hammerheads sharks!

  • Deep south, near Sudan, keep an eye open for bottlenose dolphins, hammerheads again, leopard sharks, manta rays, and more!

Dive Conditions

  • Season: you can dive in the Red Sea year-round. September to November (autumn) and March to May (spring) are excellent times to go, with warm air and water temperatures
  • Currents: little to medium currents depending on the itinerary you choose - ask us
  • Visibility: 15 to 35 m (50 to 115 ft)
  • Water Temperature: ranges 22° to 30°C (72° to 86°F) . Colder temperature is from December to February (winter season)

Dive Sites

  • In Northern Red Sea, the most famous dive sites are Shark and Yolanda Reef, Ras Mohamed National Park, and the SS Thistlegorm, a ship that sank in 1941 bombed by German aviation, stretching over 128 meters long (420 ft).

  • In Southern Red Sea, the most famous dive sites are Big Brother, Daedalus, and Elphinstone Reef. The reefs are healthier than in the North, and the topography is varied, with deep walls, tunnels, and even a few wrecks to look at!

  • In Deep South Red Sea, St. John’s Reef and the marine parks of Zabargad and Rocky islands are relatively remote and not visited frequently by liveaboards. The area offers what is considered the most spectacular diving in Egypt with varied topography and some big pelagic life as you get closer to Sudan.
