Just 5 hours from the UK, the Red Sea is a unique marine paradise that offers some of the world’s most spectacular diving.

With 200 different types of hard and soft corals, stunning drop-offs, walls, caves and wrecks, together with a vast array of marine life from tiny commensal shrimp  to large pelagics such as dolphins, oceanic whitetips and hammerheads, the Red Sea offers a truly unforgettable diving experience all year round.

Legendary dive sites include the world-famous Thistlegorm, the Rosalie Moller, Abu Nuhas wreck system, Ras Mohamed National Park and Gubal Island of the Northern Red Sea and St. Johns, the Brothers, Fury Shoals, Daedalus and Elphinstone of the South. Whether you chose to dive north or south, the Red Sea is home to beautiful healthy reefs, world class wreck dives, millions of fish and fantastic visibility.

The Red Sea offers excellent diving year round. Water temperatures range from 21°C in the winter to 30°C in summer.  The summer months bring a range of pelagics to the area including manta rays, hammerhead sharks and whalesharks, and the cooler waters of the winter bring grey reef sharks, thresher sharks and dolphins, all together with 1100 species of fish, 20 percent of which cannot be found anywhere else in the world.

Note: Egyptian regulations require divers to have a minimum of 20 logged dives if they wish to dive the Thistlegorm.
