The Red Sea is one of the world’s greatest diving destinations. Filled with colour reefs, rays, sharks and wrecks. There is an itinerary to help you find your most desired types of diving and tick things off the bucket list.
There is no better way to explore the Red Sea than aboard Blue Horizon, one of the finest Red Sea liveaboards.
You should be in a relatively good level of fitness as there are some currents on most dives. Guides and crew on the boat tend to be very helpful so are always happy to assist you in and out of the water.
Hurgada and Port Ghalib depending on the itinerary
The Red Sea is all year destination but the best times are October to December for Oceanic White Tip sharks, Manta Rays in Spring and Summer for hammerheads.
