Red Sea Dive Trip 2024

Immerse yourself in the wonders of the Red Sea on an extraordinary dive expedition, where ancient wrecks, vibrant coral reefs, and the mesmerizing marine world of the Red Sea awaits your exploration.


Come explore the legendary Egyptian Red Sea on the Northern Reefs & Wrecks Itinerary!

This itinerary presents the best of both worlds, where you visit famous wrecks in the northern Red Sea along with some stunning reef diving. As a 21+ DIVES cruise, there’s a good chance to enjoy 21 or more dives on a 7-day safari if you choose to.

The famous horseshoe shaped reef of Shaab El Erg is a perfect example of the reefs on offer on this cruise with its beautiful hard coral garden and the chance to dive with dolphins.

Abu Nuhas has four well-known wrecks: Giannis D, Carnatic, the Chrisoula K (’tile wreck’) and the Kimon M (‘lentil wreck’), all offering spectacular dives and plenty of fish life.

In between wreck dives you will also visit the reefs of the Straits of Gubal, Gulf of Suez and those to the north of Hurghada. A variety of deep walls and hard coral gardens with an abundance of reef fish make them well worth a visit.

Night dives can be superb as Gubal Island offers protected anchoring for the night. A small wreck at 8-10 metres makes for a spectacular night dive with lionfish, scorpion fish and its resident giant

moray eel as well as the wreck of the Ulysses. Next onto the Kingston lying at Shag Rock, the Carina lying close to Sha’ab Ali and the Dunraven at Beacon Rock.

Jackson Reef, locally named the ‘Aquarium’, is Tiran‘s most popular dive with the ‘Jackson Drift’ being Sharm’s fastest and most exhilarating drift dive past a stunning wall bursting with prolific coral growth.
