The Red Sea is open all year with water temperatures varying from 21-30 degrees. This is a semi tropical region so the summer months are warmer than winter, both in air and water temperatures. The Deep South is most active from April-October and the Northern Red Sea June-October, but consider traveling outside of these months if you particularly enjoy the different sightings you get through the seasons and quieter reefs. The wrecks can be dived year round.

Diving Highlights

The marine life is extemly varied in the Red Sea and the number of endemic corals vast. Many wrecks have formed their own mini artificial reefs and are just as enjoyable to fish lovers as wreck divers.

  • Napoleons
  • Turtles
  • Lion fish
  • 19th and 20th century wrecks
  • Hammerheads
  • Thresher sharks
  • Oceanic white tips

Top dive sites to visit: Ras Mohammed (Shark & Yolanda), Jackson, Shag Rock, Bluff Point, Thistlegorm, Rosalie Moller, Abu Nuhas wrecks, Daedalus, The Brothers, Elphinstone, St Johns Caves, Habili Jaffa, Habili Ali

Scuba Travel Tips

Egyptian Liveaboards are well worth considering if you have dived most of the major sites from land and want to dive more of the region than day boats can reach. Liveaboards are also cracking value with approximately 20+ dives on an average week in the North. Make sure you do a night dive, especially on one of the wrecks! Do take an SMB and reel, especially if you are off to the remote marine park areas. You will need 6 months validity on your passport from your return date.
