Red Sea
When it was explored by Hans Hass in the 1940s, the Red Sea was considered too shark infested for divers. Hass made his first movie here and won an award for it. The area is still one of the most beautiful diving areas on earth, offering an astounding variety of marine life from beautiful pastel soft corals to fishes in all colors of the rainbow. Photographers have long loved this sea for its unique and abundant photo opportunities. It is probably best dived by liveaboard.
