We are offering two date options for our trip to Egypt and the Red Sea! The trips offer different itineraries.

A wonderful trip of a lifetime to Egypt and the Red Sea April 9 – 25, 2020.

Join us for this world-class scuba diving and land extravaganza! Home to one of the world’s oldest civilizations, Egypt bears the pyramids of Cairo and the nearby Museum of Egyptian Antiquities – home to the legendary treasures of Tutankhamen. Egypt is also much more than ancient monuments and pyramids; It’s a cruise down the Nile, luxury hotels, nightlife, a vast invigorating desert and, especially for scuba divers, it’s the Red Sea.

With awesome visibility and breath-taking soft corals, the Red Sea is one of the most popular scuba diving destinations in the world. There are over 1,000 species of fish, 20 percent of which can be found nowhere else in the world and the Red Sea is also the resting place of several WWII wrecks that house countless artifacts.
