Always dive according to your
level of training.
Check with your dive center for
safety and level required for each dive site.
In the Red Sea (Egypt) they
are 7 main liveaboard routes.
The deep south
Marin parks route or top of deep south
Top liveaboard cruise in the
world, a gooddive
The marine parks cruises visit all the best dive sites of the deep
south like Deadalus; Zabargad; Rocky Island and St. Johns. If you have the
opportunity to join one of those itineraries you will dive from one top dive
site to another. This liveaboard route has long distances of sailing and
this reason you will need a rapid boat and good weather conditions. Only a few boats in the Red Sea can offer this route on a one
week trip. Best time is April till November for weather conditions and
June for pelagics and sharks.
Marsa Alam Sataya
This liveaboard route doesn't go very far down South of Marsa Alam
because first it goes North of Marsa Alam to dive Elfinstone reef one of
the top dive sites in the deep South. You will dive along the south
coast of Marsa Alam where some top dive sites like the dolphin dive of
Deep South St.Johns
The best liveabord route along the Egyptian coast.
Starting from Marsa Alam area going South along the coast while diving all
the best dive sites of the coast of deep South like the dolphin dive of
Samadai all the way down to St. Johns. St. Johns reefs definitely rank
among the top dive sites not to be missed in the Red Sea.
Safaga liveaboard route
60km South of Hurghada the quality of diving increases already.
This liveaboard route has the advantage of being in a protected area and
for this reason can offer easy conditions for less experienced divers
who will be diving top dive sites like Salem Express wreck; Panorama reef etc.
The North liveaboard route or
wreck tour starts from Hurghada to go North till the entry of the gulf of
Suez where the wrecks like Thislegorm and Dunraven are. A visit of the
Ras Mohamed marine park will be on the program. On the way North and
and the way back you will visit all the best dive sites of Hurghada
like careless reef and small Giftun Isl.
Sinai liveaboards routes
Mainly starting from Sharm El Sheikh those routes are very similar
to the north route. Instead of having the Hughada area dive sites on the
way to the wrecks and Ras Mohamed marine park you will dive the best
dive sites of Sharm El Sheikh and the Tiran strait which is in my point
of view even better
