The “REEFS & WRECKS” Route is along with the North Route the number 1 in the North of the Red Sea. The most completed and varied route to which we will add not very well known diving spots. Our experience in the last 20 years diving in Red Sea give the experience to the Blue force team to know those places.

During the liveaboard week, with embark and disembark in Hurghada, on board Jessica we will plan 6 intense diving days with a varied diving days. It is considered the best route to discover famous Red Sea diving or for those that go for first time in a liveaboard. It is a very complete and simple route for diving, matching all diving levels, from the new divers up to TEC divers, although we recommend advanced open water level or equivalent. The sailing on this route is very short and pleasant, reaching the furthest dive sites in about two hours. The wide range of dive sites will give you the opportunity of diving amazing reefs like those found in Ras Mohammed National Park, visiting a living WWII museum at the wreck of SS Thistlegorm, explore spectacular wrecks like the Kingston, Giannis D, Carnatic  and the SS Thistlegorm and enjoy all the underwater wonders of the Red Sea reefs in pristine dive sites like Small Crack or Shag Rock and the possibility of snorkeling with dolphins.

After de diving cruise you can add (optionally), an incredible cruise through the Nile River between Luxor and Aswan, and an amazing visit to El Cairo city, where you will discover some of Wonders of Humanity, such as the Giza Pyramids and the Sphinx, and enjoy exceptional places such as the Big Bazar and the Egyptian Museum.

All in all this will be an INCREDIBLE DIVING TRIP AND MUCH MORE!
