Liveaboards in The red sea

The Red Sea

The Red Sea is considered to be one of the 7 Wonders of the underwater world, with over 1200 species of fish, many that are endemic, and over 200 species of coral. Crystal clear water will allow you to see numerous species of sharks, rays, and even dolphins during your dives. Be on the lookout for the world biggest fish, the Whale Shark which can be found throughout the Red Sea! Colorful corals provide homes for smaller marine life and the Red Sea has fantastic marco opportunities. See how many of the 175 different species of nudibranch you can find! Your dives will take place on shallow reefs, near vertical walls, or on one of several wrecks in the area.

The Red Sea is home to the SS Thistlegorm a 413′ British armed Merchant Navy ship from WWII which was sunk on October 6th 1941 by the Germans. Considered one of the best wreck dives in the world you can still see most of the cargo she was carrying when she went down. Including trucks, motorcycles, rifles, ammo, wellington boots, and a steam locomotive.

The Red Sea’s abundance of marine life and beauty of the reef are a thrill that many divers will tell you is unbeatable.

Red Sea Itineraries

There are 2 main ports from where your Red Sea Liveaboard Dive vacation will depart from. Hurghada is on the western coast of the Red Sea just south of the Sinai Peninsula and Port Ghalib / Marsa Alam which is further South. Both locations have international airports and most people will be able to arrive via one connection in either Europe or Cairo.

Until the 1980s Hurghada was a small fishing village. Today Hurghada has become the leading coastal resort town on the Red Sea. Holiday resorts and hotels provide aquatic sport facilities for windsurfers, kitesurfers, yachtsmen, scuba divers, and snorkelers. Hurghada is known for its watersports activities, nightlife, and warm weather.  
Below is information on the 6 itineraries available from Hurghada & links to each boat that operates them.
