Our Southern Red Sea Diving Blog

Whenever we visit a destination, or hear something interesting about it, we like to write a blog. On this page you can find all of our blogs about diving in the southern Red Sea. We hope this will inspire you to create some experiences of your own.

Coral Reefs

We were particularly excited for this week's episode of Blue Planet 2, which took us underwater to explore the most diverse marine ecosystems: coral reefs. Despite covering less than one percent of the Earth's surface, these submarine cities support a staggering 25 percent of all marine species. And once again, the chaps at Blue Planet didn't disappoint, showing some of the reefs more eclectic residents, including a terrifying pre-historic bobbit worm reminiscent of Stranger Things (more on that later), a grouper and octopus hunting together and a turtle spa, as well as a host of other fascinating marine life. But as the episode ended we felt rather restless; the TV is not enough to satiate us, we need to see these glorious ecosystems in the flesh. So if you're a bit like us and fancy an Attenborough adventure, read on for our favourite coral reefs.

One Ocean

A man stands in solitude at the front of a ship, peering over the horizon pensively. Jack? Waiting for Rose? Thankfully this isn't Titanic and the only 'I'm flying' scene was from the marine life (bird-eating fish, anyone?). Sir David Attenborough and his dulcet tones have returned to take us to explore the wonders of the ocean like never before.

Short Haul Winter Diving Destinations

As we (at least those of us based in Europe) are slowly stepping into the cold of winter and dusting off our winter clothing, here at Original Diving, we've compiled our list of some top short-haul winter diving destinations. Here's a selection of places you can get to for a short break where the snow won't be falling and the waters remain unfrozen. Enjoy!
