With awesome visibility and breath-taking soft corals, the Red Sea is one of the most popular scuba diving destinations in the world. There are over one thousand species of fish in the Red Sea, 20 percent of which can be found nowhere else in the world. It is hard to believe that where the Egyptian desert sands end, a marine paradise begins. Ironically, Egypt's desert climate has created an ideal liveaboard scuba diving setting. rn

It is one of the sunniest places on the planet, therefore, corals and their tiny guests thrive on an overabundance of solar energy. The Red Sea is the resting place of many intriguing wrecks included several WWII ships that house countless artifacts.

What makes our Red Sea LiveAboard scuba diving vacation different:

The RED SEA AGGRESSOR III will operate from the Port Ghalib yacht marina and resort area. It is a beautiful gated upscale resort community that is home to the 130 ft., 22 passenger Red Sea Aggressor and includes lots of restaurants and shopping. If arriving early, we recommend staying at the Marina Lodge or Siva Port Ghalib at Port Ghalib 10 minutes from the Marsa Alam Airport; located next to the Port Ghalib Marina where the yacht docks. The resort can arrange transportation and will drive right up to the liveaboard boat where you may step onboard for your Red Sea scuba diving vacation.
