The Egyptian Red Sea is a vast rift between Africa and Asia stretching thousands of kilometers from the tip of the Sinai Peninsula, to the border with Sudan in the south. Its shallow coastal shelves are home to spectacular coral reefs renowned for their prolific marine life, whilst isolated offshore reefs and islands attract healthy populations of pelagic sharks.

Nowhere else can divers enjoy such accessible diving and explore pristine reefs and eerie wrecks, or encounter schools of dolphins or the beautiful oceanic whitetip shark - all from the comfort of a resort or liveaboard.
