Itinerary Details

Wrecks and Reefs is the itinerary for any diver wanting to see the best of the Northern Red Sea, no matter what experience level. With world class wreck dives and breath taking reef dives every day, why not take a trip to the best of both worlds.

Wrecks and Reefs Description

Wrecks and Reefs is the itinerary for any diver wanting to see the best of the Northern Red Sea - no matter what experience level you have see what has made Egypt's Red Sea such an unmissable destination in 1 week of adventure. With world class wreck dives and breath taking reef dives every day, why not take a trip to the best of both worlds. Endlessly flexible, Wreck and Reefs has become a classic route. And yet no two trips are ever the same. The route can be adapted easily to ensure you visit the right dive sites... at any time of the year. The underwater scenery is ever changing and guaranteed to leave you breathless.

The Wrecks and Reefs itinerary gets to some of the most iconic dive sites Egypt has to offer, as well a few of lesser known beauties. After the check dive, this tour starts in style. Tiran and Ras Mohammed are rightly two of the best known areas for diving in the Northern Red Sea. The coral gardens play host to hundreds and thousands of candy coloured fish. The deep walls of Tiran mirror the startling drop offs of Ras Mohammed. Blue spotted sting rays, eagle rays and manta abound and the summer months see large pelagic sharks gather on the drop off. Hammerheads, Black Tips, leopard and even tiger sharks all visit the region. Cruising past Shark and Yolanda, Wrecks and Reefs takes in the Alternatives, Small Crack and Bluff Point before moving onto the wrecks. The Northern Red Sea is a wreck diver's delight. The almighty Thistlegorm is the setting for unforgettable diving, day or night. The Kingston, Dunraven, Giannis D and Carnatic only add to the excitement. These 19th and 20th century wrecks have, over the course of time, formed artificial reefs but each is still packed with unique artefacts that tell their story.

Wrecks and Reefs is the ideal itinerary whatever your experience level. A popular route for those new to the Red Sea, the varied depths across dive sites suit all abilities - from novice to tekkie. Visibility is crystal clear and the warm blue waters are perfect for even the longest dive times. Water temperatures typically range between 20 and 28 degrees throughout the year. Diving can be accessed whatever the season, either by boat or RIB. Currents push nutrients rich water from north to south, giving you plenty of opportunity for exhilarating drift dives. Travel times between dive sites are short leaving more time for relaxing. Few other dive destinations can offer the same quality and quantity of top dive sites. This itinerary will fill your log book with both wrecks and reefs that are envied the world over.
