Red Sea

A heavenly haze of eternal blue where the desert meets the sea. A breathtakingly exotic seascape, this amazing sea is the shining pathway between Asia and Africa, and a truly awe-inspiring cruising ground. Beneath its azure blue surface is an absolute fantasyland of sprawling reefs, living creatures, and coral gardens that see it ranked as one of the world’s most spectacular diving and snorkelling destinations.

The Red Sea is dubbed Egypt’s “Garden of God”, due to the wealth of underwater pristine life. There are over 1100 species of fish, more than 200 species of corals, 40 species of star fish, 25 species of sea urchins, more than a 100 species of mollusc and 150 species of crustaceans as well as sea turtles, dugongs and dolphins.

A Red Sea holiday in Egypt is simply unforgettable. It is a top destination for scuba diving, snorkeling, kiting, wind-surfing and enjoying the beauty of the seascape. M/Y Seven Spices will take you to the turquoise lagoons and white beaches of lonely desert islands, breathtaking coral gardens and vertical coral walls, to the famous wrecks and to locations perfect for wind or power sports, deep sea fishing and sheltered uninhabited islands for an idyllic evening barbecue under the desert stars.
