The Red Sea stretches over two thousand kilometres from the Sinai Peninsula to the Strait of Bab el Mandeb. Navigated for thousands of years by Egyptian, Persian and Muslim sailors, the Red Sea was a vital connection between Asia & Africa. Today’s travellers are drawn to its extraordinary marine life & spectacular reefs, as well as the many wrecks that lie dotted on the sea bed. With exceptional encounters with sharks, dolphins & dugong, huge schools of fish and even whale sharks, the Red Sea is without doubt one of the world’s finest dive destinations.
