The Red Sea in Egypt is famous among scuba divers for the most colourful reefs in crystal clear waters, for the blue hole, for some of the best wrecks in the world and for sharks!
While there are great options to do dives on a day trip basis it is way more fun to book a liveaboard trip and enjoy the comforts of living on your dive boat. It will always drop you from your bedroom right to the dive site and right after a dive, you will have a chance to have a hot shower (or a beer).
To help you find your way through all the different possibilities you have to take liveaboards in the Red Sea we've put together the very best itineraries for liveaboards in Egypt.

Aqaba, the southernmost part of Jordan in the Middle East, is a bustling ocean town, known only to those who give Jordan a chance and visit to see more than just Petra. Sitting on the Red Sea it is home to some world-class diving and is a lot less crowded than some touristy diving towns in Egypt or Israel. Diving here really surprised us, and we are sure it will you too. Warm waters, good visibility, big and small marine life await. BUT, unfortunately, there is a lots of rubbish that flows in through the gulf of Aqaba so make sure you pick up the trash as you dive and help make Aqaba cleaner! Here are our favourite dive sites in Aqaba, Jordan.
Sharm el Sheikh is one of the best dive destinations in the world; The Red Sea, pristine coral, abundant marine life, big animals, small animals, warm water and vis for days! Thousands upon thousands of divers visit Sharm each year; and don't the dive centers know it; there's one on most corners. So who the hell should you dive with while you are in Sharm when there are so many choose from? Here at GTS we know the ropes, we've been diving in Sharm for years, so we've split it into categories for you to help you choose easier!
I'll admit it, I'm totally obsessed with scuba diving. Every country I visit I go out of my way to head to the ocean and dive straight in. I'll miss tourist attractions, nights out, and days on the beach because of it. So on my latest solo adventure around the Middle East I gave myself the challange of diving as many countries as I could along the Red Sea. A, because it is my favourite dive spot in the world and B, because a scuba dive mission is the best mission of all. So I documented my dives in Egypt, Israel and Jordan to bring to you my opinion on the best country to dive the Red Sea. Let's do this....
