Dive on the Most Pristine Sites of the Red Sea!

Why we love it

This August, join other reef-friendly divers! Embark on an Award-Winning liveaboard to explore the most pristine sites of the Red Sea. We love the founders' commitment to developing safe and fun liveaboard trips in Egypt for the past 30 years. We’ll do up to 21 dives in the world-famous sites of Elphinstone, Fury Shoals, and St John’s reefs. The team will make sure they’ll take you to the best entry points for every site. With port fees, marine park fees, and free Nitrox, this is the best value trip of the red sea!

Dive briefing!

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, keep an eye open for bottlenose dolphins, hammerheads again, leopard sharks, manta rays, and more!

Dive Conditions

  • Season: the best time to dive in the southern Red Sea is from May to September
  • Currents: little to medium currents
  • Visibility: 15 to 35 m (50 to 115 ft)
  • Water Temperature: ranges 28° to 30°C (82° to 86°F) .

Dive Sites

  • In Southern Red Sea, Elphinstone Reef is one of the most famous dive sites. The reefs are healthier in the South 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.
