Northern Red Sea, Ras Mohamed and Straits of Tiran

The Red Sea is one of the most popular world class dive destinations. The diving is split betwen the North and the South. The new RED SEA AGGRESSOR II™ will offer guests a 7-night itinerary diving the best of the north to Ras Mohamed and the Straits of Tiran. Just off shore lives thousands of species of fish in beautiful crystal clear water
with coral gardens, historical shipwrecks, breath-taking soft corals, and pinnacles. There are over one thousand species of fish in the Red Sea, 20 percent of which can be found nowhere else in the world. Where the Egyptian desert sands end, a marine paradise begins.

With two different yachts in the Red Sea, guests are able to easily do back to back charters in order to experience the incredible diversity the Red Sea has to offer from the north to the south.

What makes the Aggressor Fleet Red Sea LiveAboards different?

It is a beautiful marina area that is home to the 138 ft., 22 passenger RED SEA AGGRESSOR II™. Transfers are included in the price of the trip if arriving/departing from the Hurghada Airport on the charter start/end dates to and from New Marina Hurghada Harbor where the yacht docks.
