The first is a trip 6-13 February, going deep south from Hamata returning to Hamata so people can fly into Hurghada or Marsa Alam and transfer down. Hamata and Fury Shoal are less visited areas and at this time of year will be quite quiet too.
The second trip is a 100m wreck special: 22nd February – 2nd March
Diving a 100-meter wreck is one thing, but when the decompression takes place on the spectacular reefs and walls of the Red Sea, the experience is beyond compare.
The dive starts with a decent into clear blue water with almost unlimited visibility. On CCR you have plenty of time to explore, document and enjoy the wreck. And when you begin your ascent, you are not hanging in the blue but you are drifting along reefs and walls covered with soft and hard coral and surrounded by fish from the smallest Anthias to sharks or dolphins, and if you are lucky, even mantas all the way up to the surface.
With Red Sea Explorers’ world-renowned and exclusive support for rebreather and open circuit diving technical diving, you can push your diving to the next level with all types of gear from rebreather tanks, scooters, stages and doubles. Not to mention an a la carte menu of gases. The RSE team of experienced dive guides and boat crew will make it possible to visit some of the most elusive deep wrecks in the Red Sea.
Join us for 7 days of deep diving on some of the most demanding and rewarding wreck dives the Red Sea has to offer. The expedition is ideal for expert CCR divers, but can also be joined by less experienced CCR and open circuit divers who wants to gain experience as project or support divers.
