I spent three years
diving the Red Sea in Egypt and I'll never forget the quality of the
dives I did! In the beginning I really enjoyed the top wrecks in
the North and in Safaga there was the nicest coral formation I
ever saw. I was missing the big fish and pelagics of the Indian
Ocean. But now that the liveaboard boats go to the "Deep
South" of Egyptian waters the encounter with mantas;
kingfish; tuna and many more pelagics including sharks is on the
daily menu. Can you imagine seeing 5 different sorts of sharks,
three mantas and an eagle ray during the same dive?... This is not
anything rare in the St. Johns area!
For many European divers
this is the favourite destination. Most of the divers come several
times and it is not difficult to vary the experience. There are
more than 10 different liveaboard routes and more than 15
different destinations on shore with tens of divesites...
