What we're about

Let's build a community of friends that travel, and dive, and want to create fun memories together. We'll meet locally, for happy hours, but the emphasis is to travel to exotic destinations, and remote corners of the world, to seek new adventures, and dive. I've been diving all over the world and I have a passion to share travel, adventure, and exciting experiences with new friends, and divers. Every year, we'll include 1-2 trips to the Caribbean, 1 trip to the South Pacific, and some kind of adventure trip with sharks, whales, or more. Please join us and become a part of a true travel and adventure group.

Visit The Red Sea + Egypt

Cairo

Welcome to 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 1000 species of fish in the Red Sea, 20 percent of which can be found nowhere else in the world. Egypt’s desert climate has created an ideal liveaboard scuba diving setting, and because it is one of the sunniest places on the planet, corals and their tiny guests thrive on an overabundance of solar energy. The Red Sea is also the resting place of many intriguing wrecks included several WWII ships that house countless artifacts.

RED SEA AGGRESSOR III INCLUDES:

All staterooms are air-conditioned and fitted with private toilets, showers, sinks and hair dryers. Breakfast (cooked to order), buffet lunch and an elegant meal at dinner with tableside service are served in addition to fresh mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks.

About “Simply The Best” Itinerary

Simply the Best is the best scuba diving of the Egyptian Southern Red Sea. The itinerary focuses on the reef systems of the Brothers and Daedalus, which together make up the Northern Marine Park and the steep wall dives of Elphinstone. The Egyptian Marine Parks are protected areas and places of magnificent beauty underwater. The lighthouses have warned passing ships throughout the years of the dangers that hide beneath the waves but for divers this is a playground. Drift dives, daring drops offs, pelagic encounters and even wreck dives.
