The Red Sea
 

The Red Sea is a new departure for Scuba Safaris! Since the Fantasea moved to SE Asia and became the Pelagian we have been hard pressed to find a live-aboard that meets the international benchmarks that are set by the Aggressor & Dancer Fleets and such privately owned vessels as the Truk Odyssey, FeBrina or Golden Dawn. It has only been in recent years that Egyptian live-aboards have started meeting these criteria, and it is with pleasure that we are now offering a choice of 3 live-aboards that do meet these standards, and act as a yardstick for future Red Sea live-aboards.

The Red Sea is a world of contrasts. Heat blasted mountains and desert seem to be devoid of life, but underwater colour burst forth in some of the most beautiful and delicate reefs in the world. Fabulous soft corals draped over exquisite hard coral formations, shrouded in swirling schools of glassfish are typically what Red Sea reefs have to offer, with gullies and swim-throughs adding a sense of adventure and mystery. Fan corals, their edges an ideal perch for feather stars, sway in the current, and lionfish lurk in every nook and cranny, waiting for a tasty morsel to drift past. Sheers walls, such as those found at Ras Mohammed and Sanganeb, plunge into the abyss, and here can be found patrolling sharks, schools of snapper, barracuda, jacks and other open water species.

Our three live-aboards cover separate areas. Whirlwind, based in Sharm El Sheikh, has a northern Egyptian itinerary, diving the Straits of Tiran, Jackson, Woodhouse, Thomas & Gordon Reefs, Ras Um Sid, Shag Rock, Ras Katty and Ras Mohammed, and affords you the opportunity to explore such varied wrecks as the Thistlegorm, Ghiannis D, Carnatic, Chrisoula K, Dunraven & Rosie Moller. Hurricane ventures forth from Marsa Alam on a southern Egyptian routing to dive The Brothers, Elphinstone, Daedalus, Zabagad and St John's Reef.

The Egyptian Red Sea offers the beginner and experienced diver a little bit of everything! Fabulous reefs, a wonderful range of wrecks, pelagics, critters and much more. The added bonus of being only 5 or 6 hours flying time from various UK airports makes it affordable and exceptional value for money.

Way to the south, in The Sudan, Royal Emperor leaves Port Sudan for the legendary reefs of Sanganeb, Sha'ab Rumi, Sha'ab Sa'udi and the famous wreck of the Umbria.
