Join us on our Red Sea liveaboard trip aboard the Emperor Asmaa in 2019! We will be diving the world famous southerly reefs of the Red Sea: St John’s, Daedalus, Elphinstone and the Brothers Islands (where chances are highest to see the elusive oceanic white tip shark)!
We’ve made sure to plan this in the best marine life month of the year, so we’ll be smack bang in the middle of schooling hammerhead, whaleshark and manta ray season.
Above all, the Red Sea is renowned for its healthy reefs, which remain stable and healthy at a time when other major reef systems are suffering from the effects of climate change and marine pollution. In total, the reefs of the Red Sea support more than 220 different species of hard and soft coral. Together, these corals provide the basis of an ecosystem that offers both food and shelter to more than 1,100 species of fish, almost a fifth of which are found nowhere else on Earth!
We’ve got 17 dives included in this package and they’re all day dives. Night dives are not allowed in the marine parks.
The best thing about liveaboard diving is that you get started with your diving pretty much immediately after waking up! When the land based resorts are serving breakfast, we’ll already be in the water for the first dive getting the best possible view of the sharks! You jump out of bed for a quick light snack and wake up with the sharks of the Red Sea before having a big breakfast back on board after the first dive! On the liveaboard we are able to venture further out to the southern reefs to experience some of the best diving the Red Sea has to offer!
This is a BIG animals trip with a focus on large sharks and dolphins. The boat is going to move a lot to get us to the best spots (where the action is happening) and we’re right in the middle of hammerhead season, so fingers crossed for schooling hammerheads!
Besides the sharks, expect big rays, dolphins and big pelagics. Whatever we’re going to see, most of it will be big!!
This is a flexible itinerary, focussing on action dives! The Summer months in Egypt (May – August) are best-known for the variety of sharks visiting some of these remote offshore reefs. Be prepared for constantly changing diving plans as we will go where the action is. Our guides select the best possible action sites to visit based on their immense local knowledge and on insider-data on recent activity including a variety of Red Sea sharks, dolphins and anything else that chooses to join the party!
Nitrox is included in the price and so are all meals and all soft drinks (+ red wine during dinner)! This is an all inclusive liveaboard (apart from beers)!
