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.
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!
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.
