Join Blue Crew Divers and local Red Sea Expert Everette as we travel to the Red Sea. The southern Red Sea is among the richest and most productive of marine ecosystems, due in large part to the over 250km of coastal fringing reef.  

The Red Sea’s underwater eco-system is home to over 300 species of coral and 1,200 species of fish, 10% of which are found nowhere else in the world. Spinner dolphins, dugongs, turtles, mantas, clown fish, common lion fish, Crocodilefish, Titan triggerfish, Bullethead parrotfish, Napoleon wrasse, Giant moray, Bluespotted ray and sharks are just some of the marine species that calls these waters home. There are a number of reefs, islands and coastal regions, which are protected areas and national parks. Some of the underwater life you will find in the Red Sea include Dugong, turtles, . 

There are over 10 shark species that call the Red Sea home,

  • Oceanic White Tip Shark

  • Hammerhead Shark

  • Tiger Shark

  • Grey Reef Shark

  • Thresher Shark

  • Silky Shark

  • Nurse Shark

  • Black Tip Reef Shark

  • White Tip Reef Shark

  • Whale Shark

Whether it is getting up close and personal with sharks, swimming with pods of up to 60 dolphis or tryign to identify any of the 300 species of coral, you will not be dissapointed diving in the Red Sea.
