The Southern Red Sea is certainly awesome - especially a night dive. Don't worry about sharks - they never bothered us - I think the water is so warm they feel too sluggish to bother!!!

This talk is bringing back loads of memories - sob...............

Daveboy, interesting you mention the liveaboard as that is what we want to do. Or possibly a week at a resort and a second on board. We have done many liveaboards in the Caribbean and on the west coast of Canada and they are always the "best bang for the buck"...

Your comments about experience hit one of our challenges head on... I've logged about 3600 dives, almost all of it solo, deeper (100-200') wreck diving. The better half (who I met while teaching a dive class...) has about 100 dives, all "tourist" dives in the Carribbean... too cold for her here! The liveaboards seem to solve that problem nicely since they cover so many sites...

Thanks again for all of your input...


Pump it up and RIDE!

Sounds like you will both really enjoy the red sea (any part) - March/April is a very good time to go - it is usually not too hot at this time of year although still in the 30's.
