Liveaboards in Red Sea

The Red Sea is known for its wide array of luxurious yet affordable dive liveaboards. Similar to the Maldives, you can enjoy luxurious amenities on a liveaboard at a lower price than you would in other world-class destinations! To give you an idea, almost all liveaboards in the Red Sea cost around $150/night or less. The Red Sea is known for its prolific marine life, hosting over a thousand fish species, 20% of which exist exclusively in this body of water. It is also known for being a great place to spot whale sharks.

diving season

March to May and September to November are often cited as the best time to dive in the Red Sea. However, diving is available year-round with cooler temperatures from October to May and warmer weather from June to September. 

March to May is also known to be the best time to spot a whale shark, and considered the peak season, so some dive sites may get crowded. June to August is quieter for the Red Sea. The hot topside temperatures can make you uncomfortable, but it's still worth considering since you may encounter hammerhead sharks! September to November--the fall season--offers comfortable water and topside weather and therefore might attract more crowds, just like the spring months!
