Super complete and varied route in which all the dive sites are the best of the Red Sea and world famous.

Dive in a week at places like the Ras Mohamed National Park, the Brothers Islands in search of pelagic, some of the best wrecks in the world- the SS Thistlegorm and the Salem Express and along the walls of Abu Kifan in Safaga.

The variety of dives make this route very special, with diving points very different from each other and where you can appreciate all varieties of life and environment that the Red Sea offers, such as reef and pelagic life, the spectacular historical wrecks or the incredible coral walls.

With a longer navigation than other routes, we visit the Ras Mohamed National Park to enjoy an authentic underwater paradise, we submerge in the SS Thistlegorm, a British wreck sunk during World War II to enjoy this impressive wreck and explore the spectacular Abu Nu'as reef, known as the wreck cemetery.

Sail to the remote Brothers islands, highlight of this route. These two islands are located in the middle of the Red Sea, are an oasis of life and food so the encounter with large pelagic is usually common. Its walls full of coral, the great currents and the spectacular nature of life are the great reference points of these islands, without forgetting the sightings of sharks. We will dive into the wrecks Numidia and Aida. Back to Hurghada if weather conditions are favourable, we visit the Salem Express.
