Discover Egypt’s exotic Red Sea & explore the ancient ruins of Jordan!

Trip Leaders: Scott Griesser & Kelly Faulkner

The Red Sea takes its name from the periodic algal blooms that occur, painting the sea with a reddish hue versus the red-tinted Egyptian mountain ranges that surround it. It is a diver's paradise, with warm, calm seas, a plethora of marine life, and unsurpassed visibility.

The Red Sea is considered to be one of the 7 wonders of the underwater world, harboring more than 1000 species of invertebrates and over 200 species of hard and soft coral. The high level of endemic species in the Red Sea is one of the main factors that makes diving in Egypt so interesting. Divers can expect unobstructed opportunities to spot tropical marine life in crystal clear waters, ranging from sharks to dolphins to gorgonian sea fans and feather stars. This charter follows the southern itinerary, following the Egyptian coastline.

An optional extension to Jordan at the end of the trip includes visiting Amman, the Dead Sea, and amazing Petra. There is also one night spent at a desert camp under the stars! Jordan is a fascinating country rich in history and beautiful archaeological sites. This is one of Ocean First’s favorite trips and not to be missed!
