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.
