Stretching a staggering 1,400 miles between the African and Arabian peninsulas, liveaboards are the best, and sometimes the only, way to explore some of the Red Sea’s best dive sites.
Broadly speaking, Egypt
liveaboard diving routes are split across the northern Red Sea and
the southern Red
Sea, with northern itineraries departing from Hurghada and
southern departures from Port Ghalib in Marsa Alam. And when it
comes to choosing a liveaboard in Egypt, divers are spoilt for
choice with itineraries to suit every interest.
Wreck-heads and history buffs will be in heaven diving in the
northern Red Sea, with special wreck diving itineraries bound for
the world-famous WWII Thistlegorm wreck, as well as the Giannis D,
Chrisoula K and Carnatic wrecks. To the south, the big star sites
include The Brothers, two remote islands frequented by a plethora
of sharks (think: hammerheads, threshers sharks, white and grey tip
reef sharks); Elphinstone for its oceanic white-tips; Daedalus'
pristine reefs; St John's coral gardens and dramatic walls (the
list goes on…).
With so many underwater environments scattered across the region
and so many options, choosing the right Egypt liveaboard diving
itinerary can be somewhat overwhelming. Luckily, we've dived the
length and breadth of this wonderful region (all in the name of
research) and can tailor your itinerary so that you can experience
all the best spots for your interests.
