Located in the Middle East, the Red Sea is a northern offshoot of the Indian Ocean. Due to little rainfall, high evaporation, and a relatively isolated location, the Red Sea has one of the world's highest rates of salinity, these factors also provide excellent diving conditions all year-round. Furthermore, the Red Sea has few river tributaries feeding into it, which means limited microalgae allowing excellent visibility.
Red Sea offer divers some of the world's most beautiful coral reefs, plentiful marine life, and a wide variety of diverse dive sites. In the northern area, there are amazing wrecks including the world-renowned SS Thistlegorm, as well as the Red Sea Blue Hole, few lagoons and beautiful reef gardens. The southern area offering dramatic encounters with manta rays and various shark species. There are more than 1,200 invertebrate species of fish and over 200 soft and hard corals has been recorded in the Red Sea, these coastal reefs are also visited by pelagic species of red sea fish, including 44 different kinds of sharks.
Many dive sites in the Red Sea are very far from the shore, so liveaboard is the best choice. We recommend divers to explore the best Red Sea destinations such as Egypt, Sudan, and Djibouti.
