Itinerary Details

Wrecks and Reefs is our number 1 Egypt diving liveaboard itinerary for a reason. Dive the best of the Northern Red Sea and discover the world class wrecks and breath taking reefs with year round departures.

Wrecks and Reefs Description

Wrecks and Reefs is our number 1 Egyptian liveaboard itinerary for a reason. Dive the best of the Northern Red Sea and discover the world class wrecks and breath taking reefs every day and night. The warm, clear waters are packed with rich coral gardens and dramatic walls, teaming with marine life. The famous wreck dives are easily accessible, and brimming with history and intrigue. This is a year round itinerary that visits some of the most iconic dive sites in Egypt and the varied depths across dive sites suit all abilities - from novice to tekkie, jump aboard for your next dive adventure.

Tiran and Ras Mohammed are two of the best known areas for diving in the Northern Red Sea. Famous for their stunning coral gardens and dramatic walls, we love spending our dives watching the clown fish, napoleons, groupers and snapper. Glass fish and anthias dart around, chased by the ever present lion fish. Hawksbills and green turtles are seen on most dives in both areas. Hunt out long nosed hawkfish hiding in the gorgonian sea fans. Large schools of snapper, bat fish and barracuda aggregate in the blue, especially in our summer months at Shark & Yolanda. Cruising past Ras Mohammed, you sail towards the first of 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, Carnatic and Ulysses only add to the excitement. These 19th and 20th century wrecks have become artificial reefs, but each is still packed with unique artefacts that tell their story. There are several resident pods of bottlenose dolphins on this itinerary's route. Gubal island is an excellent place to spot them. Keep your eyes and ears peeled underwater here! Don't skip the night dive at Gubal. The barge is home to resident giant morays, octopus, cardinal fish, nudis and so much more!

Wrecks and Reefs is the ideal itinerary whatever your experience level. However, there can be strong currents on some sites. Talk to your travel consultant if you would like to complete your PADI advanced course or a specialty on board. Visibility is typically crystal clear and water temperatures range from 20 and 28 degrees throughout the year. Travel times between dive sites are short leaving more time for relaxing. Sites can be accessed whatever the season, either by boat or RIB. We are happy to tailor the itinerary for full charter bookings. Talk to us about how we can adapt your route to meet your group's needs.

There is no doubt... few other dive destinations can offer the same quality and quantity of top dive sites in a single trip. Wrecks and Reefs keeps us all coming back for more and this is a week's diving you will never forget.
