What does a Red Sea diving safari looks like…
Diving season in the Red Sea
You can dive in the Red Sea all year round, with surface temperatures ranging from 18º C in February to 45º C in August and great diving conditions and water temperature all year round. The Summer and the end of Spring are very hard in Egypt, I still remember my first trip to the Red Sea at the end of May with 40º in the deck of the liveaboard at 9 am. So good news for the cold-natured: the water is sooooo nice in summer and spring, about 25º C. It is very common to see in late spring and summer many divers wearing shorties or 3 mm wetsuits, but for the rest of the year with a 7 mm or a 5 mm would be enough. In winter the water drops to 18ºC.
