Reiserute

Red Sea Diving, EgyptWith awesome visibility and breath-taking soft corals, the Red Sea is one of the most popular scuba diving destinations in the world. There are over one thousand species of fish in the Red Sea, 20 percent of which can be found nowhere else in the world. It is hard to believe that where the Egyptian desert sands end, a marine paradise begins. Ironically, Egypt's desert climate has created an ideal liveaboard scuba diving setting. 

It is one of the sunniest places on the planet, therefore, corals and their tiny guests thrive on an overabundance of solar energy. The Red Sea is the resting place of many intriguing wrecks included several WWII ships that house countless artifacts.

About 
The Northern Red Sea and Straits of Tiran
  • Some of the most historic wrecks like the Thistlegorm, Rosalie Moller, and Abu Nuhas. 
  • Ras Mohamed National Park has beautiful pristine coral reefs with abundant marine life.
  • The Straits of Tiran are the narrow sea passages between the Sinai and Arabian peninsulas which separate the Gulf of Aqaba from the Red Sea. These reefs, named after British cartographers are world famous for their extrordinary diversity of corals and strong south westerly currents that make them home to many large pelagic fish.
  • Between dives, guests may snorkel, explore secluded beaches or relax in many of the comfortable sitting areas on the yacht
The Red Sea is considered to be one of the 7 Wonders of the underwater world, harboring more than 1,000 species of invertebrates and over 200 species of soft and hard coral.

The Red Sea takes its name from the periodic algal blooms that occur here painting the sea with a reddish hue, and not the red-tinted Egyptian mountain ranges that surround it. Variety is in no short supply either and depending on where you choose to dive. If it isn't the first destination to crop up in a wow conversation, it is typically among the first 3. In other places vibrant reefs stretch out far into the sea and form intricate labyrinths of plateaus, lagoons, caves and gardens.Few locations crop up in conversations about scuba diving the way that the Red Sea does. These areas in the south of Egypt are your best bet for encounters with oceanic whitetip sharks and large schools of fish. The high level of endemism here is one of the main factors that makes Egypt scuba diving so interesting. John's which satisfy even the most experienced scuba divers.e.

Thistlegorm
In spite of being privately owned and operated, the HMS Thistlegorm was nevertheless fitted with a 4" anti-aircraft gun and a heavy calibre machine gun when she was drafted for war duty. Diving is allowed in designated areas only and visitors must leave the park by sunset. Surrounded by fringing coral reefs that emerged after a change in the coastline 70,000 years ago, the park is characterised by vertical overhangs at least 100m deep. A long list of inventory includes tanks, aircraft, armoured vehicles, Jeeps and Bedford trucks. Her last voyage commenced on the 2nd of June 1941 as she sailed to Alexandria and was loaded with wartime supplies during World War II. The Thistlegorm, on the west coast of the Sinai Peninsula and 40 km from Sharm El Sheikh, is the best known and most popular wreck dive in the Red Sea.

Ras Mohammed
Because of its exceptional beauty and scientific significance, the Egyptian government declared Ras Mohammed a protected area in 1983, at the time with an area of only 97 km². The park 
has since been extended to 480 km² and is a success today because of local awareness and the rangers who patrol the grounds and surrounding seas. If Ras Mohamed is the most spectacular diving area near Sharm El Sheikh, then Shark Reef and Yolanda Reef are the prized scuba spots of Ras Mohammed. About 20 km south of Sharm El Sheikh, on a slim peninsula towards the most southern tip of Sinai, lies Ras Mohammed, the first and best kept national park in Egypt. Due to its location on the Sinai Peninsula at the juncture of the Gulf of Suez and the Gulf of Aqaba, the combining waters of varying salinity from each gulf has resulted in a spectacular array of reef and pelagic fish, diverse coral reef and luxuriant sea walls; These reefs offers an opportunity to spy every single species of fish of the Red Sea, right here in the Sinai Peninsula. Ras Mohammed is ideal for some unforgettable Red Sea scuba diving on the Sinai Peninsula. It is believed to be one of only a few popular tourist areas in the world that has no 
effluent discharge into its waters.

Diving in Egypt as a whole is a pretty special attraction and like a box of Quality Street - everybody has their own favourite. Join an Egyptian liveaboard to experience the best diving that this region has to offer. Your diving holiday can include shallow patch reefs, drift dives and walls, or a collection of some of the most interesting wrecks you are likely to find anywhere. It's a diver's paradise, with the warmest of warm seas, very little wave action and unsurpassed visibility. The legendary dive location that is Ras Mohammed, wrecks the likes of the Thistlegorm and the Straits of Tiran are all easily accessible from Sharm El Sheikh. They are also home to interesting caves and have many tunnels to explore

Best time to visit this destination: 
Egypt can be dived all year but the water temperatures do vary a lot. The warmest period is between June to August where you can get water temperatures up to 30C, and the coldest period is February with temperatures down to 22ºC, so make sure you bring adequate wet suites. 
You should also consider the air temperature as it can get up to 40ºC in August and down to 20ºC during the winter months from December to February. If you are keen meeting whale sharks your best bet would be to travel between the end of May to the end of July when you can expect to see this awesome creature (mainly in the Northern part of the Red Sea). During this warmer period it tends to be the best time to see a wide range of marine life as the plankton blooms and this bring in the big mantas to feed as well as nesting turtles. The summer months is also the best time to spot the shy hammerhead sharks. The benefit of travelling during the winter months is of course the more pleasant topside temperatures, superior visibility and this is the time where you can hopefully see the thresher shark and dolphins.
Water Temperature: From 23 - 29ºC
Visibility: Depending on the time of year but between 20-40m
