The Red Sea, Egypt - March 21 - 28, 2019 (Liveaboard)

The Red Sea is Biblical – both literally and figuratively.

This SCUBA diving mecca boasts more than 1,000 species of marine invertebrates, over 200 species of soft and hard coral, and 1,100 species of fish, of which just about 20% are endemic (the Red Sea has been connected and isolated from the Mediterranean Sea and Indian Ocean at various points in its geological history, giving rise to high rates of endemism). The Red Sea had something for everyone – spectacular visibility, pelagic sharks, ship wrecks, and walls and fields of soft and hard coral. We explored the southern reefs of Elphinstone, St. Johns and Fury Shoal.
