Liveaboard Diving in Egypt

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.
