Red Sea & Middle East - Liveaboards


A Red Sea scuba diving holiday offers some of the most amazing dive conditions year round for all types of diving - both shore based, boat diving or on one of our specially selected liveaboards. Red Sea dive holidays offer the best value and are perfect for non-divers too.

Egypt is the Land of the Pharaohs, with abundant historical sites to visit and is the perfect paradise for year round diving holidays. The choice of hotels is vast and there is something to suit all tastes and budgets. Why not explore some of the ancient sites with an excursion to see the Pyramids or Tuthankhaun’s tomb in the Valley of the Kings.

The crystal clear warm water and some of the best and most established dive centres in the world to choose from, make Egypt a wonderful experience for both first timers and annual ‘pilgrims’ alike. Each destination offers it own special character and variety of diving.
