Famous wrecks, shark encounters, healthy coral reefs and whale sharks make the Red Sea a fascinating and convenient liveaboard destination. Head to Sudan, Egypt or Djibouti to take advantage of it.
Stretching out between Africa and the Arabian Peninsula, the Red Sea holds hundreds of epic dive sites. From famous wrecks such as the SS Thistlegorm or the Umbria to the healthy coral reefs of Ras Mohammed Marine Reserve, dive sites full of oceanic whitetips and the whale shark aggregation in Djibouti, the Red Sea has long held the fascination of underwater explorers. However, due to a lack of scuba diving infrastructure in these remote sections of Egypt, Sudan and Djibouti, the Red Sea is best traveled by liveaboard. Most dive safaris last between 6 and 10 nights, and the best time to dive in the region is from March to May or September to November.
