      About this trip

      7 nights onboard the M/Y Blue Adventurer + up to 20 dives

      Join Blue Planet for some incredible diving in the Red Sea! Our “Northern Wrecks & Reefs” itinerary will have us exploring the iconic wrecks and stunning reefs across the northern Red Sea. And for those who want to visit Egypt’s historical sites, we’ll head to Alexandria, Cairo and other famous sites for a few days after.

      Red Sea

      Beneath the crystal blue surface of the Red Sea lies a rich and diverse ecosystem just waiting to be explored. Located between Africa and Asia, the warm tropical waters are home to more than 1100 species of fish, 200 species of hard and soft corals and 44 species of shark. This rich diversity is in part due to the expanse of coral reef that extends along its coastline.

      The Red Sea is a unique marine paradise that offers some of the most spectacular diving in the world. With miles of beautiful coral reef, numerous wrecks and a vast array of marine life: from brightly colored nudibranchs and tropical fish, to large pelagics such as oceanic white tips and hammerheads, there really is something for everyone!

      The Diving

      Minimum dive certification/experience: PADI Open Water Diver required. PADI Enriched Air/Nitrox Diver and Advanced Open Water Diver certifications strongly recommended (can be completed on trip). A minimum of 20 dives required to dive the Thistlegorm wreck.

      Our itinerary, Northern Wrecks & Reefs, visits plenty of wrecks including the world-famous Thistlegorm, Dunraven, Giannis D, Carnatic and potentially even more. There is also some fantastic reef diving including the Ras Mohamed marine park, Danaba (Shag Rock), Sha'ab El Erg (famous for dolphin encounters) and the Island of Gobal.

      Check out the itinerary for a description of the different sites we'll visit, but keep in mind that nothing is guaranteed. All dive sites are subject to weather conditions and the final route taken is at the absolute discretion of the captain and dive guides.

      Blue Planet is a different kind of scuba diving organization — aimed at providing the best education and experiences to divers in the Washington, DC area and beyond, while harnessing the excitement and adventure of scuba diving to help protect our fragile oceans.


      Great experience, our instructors from blue planet were accommodating and flexible with what we needed. They balanced safety and fun, as well as a hectic schedule that allowed us to get certified in just three days in the water. The weather was perfect (not that thats under our control) which lent itself to good swimming conditions. wonderful trip overall!

      Trips with Blue Planet continue to amaze! The Sea of Cortez liveaboard was great value for the money- comfortable rooms, friendly and capable crew, and highly enjoyable diving. There are lots of moving parts re: a liveaboard and Blue Planet consistently provides excellent support. I highly recommend any and all of their trips!

      Another wonderful trip with Blue Planet! Thank you so much for coordinating a day with Dr. German Mendez and the Cozumel Coral Reef Restoration Program as well as setting up an opportunity for us to volunteer with baby sea turtle hatchlings. Helping to plant coral and release baby turtles into the ocean was truly life changing. Oh and I guess the diving was pretty good too. 😉 Thanks again BP! Looking forward to the next one.

      Another great Blue Planet trip in the books!!! This was a very laid back and relaxing destination, I enjoyed every minute of it! Our trip leader Jen was awesome she was on top of everything and kept us informed!!! Cane Bay diving was great! The whole crew was very nice, communicated with everyone and was very friendly. I felt like I had already knew them, made me feel very welcomed! The topside events was fun, including the underwater pumpkin carving which I've never carved a pumpkin before and was able to do it underwater..lol Looking forward to our next adventure together some where around the world!
