Red Sea liveaboard routes


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 tip!

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 for 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 May 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 Samadai are.

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 area

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.

North routes

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
