THE MARINE LIFE OF EGYPT
Almost never-ending sunshine lends the Red Sea’s reefs a degree of vibrant colour that is hard to match anywhere else in the world – and there’s no shortage of critters making their homes among the coral. From massive to minute, Egypt’s Red Sea is populated with life that everyone can enjoy – check out our guide to some of the favourites.
GREEN FINS ARE GROWING
A new group of dedicated trainers have been trained to train more trainees in the art of ensuring their scuba diving guests are following safe and sustainable dive practices, without damaging the marine environment.
