Egypt is a wonderful ancient land of dreams, full of history and vibrant culture. Most of us know that Egypt is the home of one of the 7 wonders in the world – the ancient Pyramids of Giza and probably everyone wants to go there to see them in person. But the pyramids are really not the only thing that you can experience while in this amazing country. Did you know that Red Sea has the bluest waters and the most unique marine life that you could ever imagine? Well, let me tell you a story about this incredible experience we had last summer on a yacht trip in the sea of Egypt!
THE SECRETS OF RED SEA
The Red Sea is home to amazing coral reefs with a teeming marine life, pelagic fishes, reef sharks, dolphins and even the very rare dugong, which makes it a true diver’s paradise and for many on of the best diving sites in the world. The North Red Sea is famous with the resort destinations such as Sharm El Sheikh, Hurghada and Dahab, where you can find some of the best wreck diving spots in the world and amazing coral reef formations.
The South Red Sea is less popular and offers much less crowded dive sites and pristine reefs with fantastic coral. Most of the people going there are experienced divers looking for world class scuba diving. In this area of the sea there is a chance to encounter some rare shark species such as the oceanic whitetip shark, hammerhead sharks as well as various reef sharks.
AN UNESPECTED INVITATION TURNED OUT TO BE THE HIGHLIGHT OF MY YEAR
We were invited by our friends from 15toGO on a yacht trip in September last year to explore this beautiful area of Egypt. This trip totally changed my mind about group travelling and I met some amazing people on this journey, whom I hope to meet again soon.
Our trip started in Hurghada where we landed and met our group, then we got directly on the liveboard. We spent a lovely week, having the best time, diving and snorkeling every day on a different place and exploring the beautiful coral reefs and marine life of The Red Sea. It was really surprising that the bluest turquoise water we have ever seen was not in Greece, Bali or somewhere else tropical, but actually was the water of Red Sea! We found some virgin desert islands that we had only for us, we saw the most beautiful coral reefs ever, swam with dolphins, saw hundreds of fish species and even reef sharks! That was an incredible once in a lifetime experience! We cannot recommend more visiting this hidden gem of the world!
