Red Sea on FIRE! Best diving for a decade ...

| No TrackBacks

We divers know the sea is not an aquarium and that nothing can be guaranteed, but we also know that there are certain destinations to go to for the
best chances of diving with the big stuff.

The Red Sea has always been convenient, close and with reliable clear, warm waters. It has also always had the capacity to surprise, with sightings big and small every year to delight divers. Right now though, it is on a hot streak and is delivering delights that we haven't had since the pioneer days of Red Sea diving.

Nature often has cycles but could there be another reason for such amazing diving right now? Is it due to the reduced number of, not just divers, but water users up and down the Red Sea coast since the decline in tourism due to the 2011 and 2013 uprisings? Certainly there are many fewer dive boats on each dive site compared to the peak years of the early 21st century but not only that, there are many fewer watercraft, not as many bathers, less construction on the coast, less sewage and less chemical runoff all as a consequence of lower numbers.

Plus, conservation organisations such as HEPCA have been subsidising fishermen to encourage them not to fish in breeding seasons.

Could it be that all these factors are starting to produce a positive effect on the marine environment in the Red Sea? Well, we've now had excellent diving for more than a year so we certainly think so.

This newsletter is going to showcase the phenomenal sightings we have had – and to really prove a point we will only include pictures and videos from this June and July!

September through to November usually presents the best diving year on year. Sea temperatures are an average of 28-30C while air temperatures cool a little from the hot summer. The big life loves these months, and we cannot wait to see what's in store under the waves. With good flight prices available now for those three months, come and get some of the action with a truly welcoming team of guides and crew.
