Discover the remote islands, colourful reefs and abundant marine life of Egypt’s breathtaking Red Sea on this spectacular liveaboard swimming holiday. Based onboard a liveaboard motor yacht, this trip gives you the chance to explore some of the Red Sea’s most remote and isolated destinations from a truly unique perspective.
The Egyptian Red Sea is a world-renowned open water destination which is located just a short flight from Europe’s main international airports. Offering outstanding water clarity, year-round sunshine and an incredible variety of marine life, it is the perfect location to discover the magic that lives beneath the water’s surface.
The Red Sea is defined by the sheer volume of colourful coral and marine life which exists around the islands and reefs that make up this corner of the world. Divers and snorkelers from across the globe have long travelled to this region to take in more than 200 types of hard and soft coral and a stunning range of fish species, sponges and crustaceans. Combining this marine life with the underwater vistas, which include caves, drop-offs and the possibility of swimming over one of the Red Sea’s countless shipwrecks, makes this a unique and unforgettable swimming destination.
On top of the organised swims which are included in the trip itinerary, there is also plenty of time to take part in additional activities, such as snorkelling and scuba diving, over the course of the trip.

This was my first swim trek but any apprehensions were immediately alleviated. I had complete confidence in the Guides and Crew and they enabled me to swim to the best of my ability. It was great to be with like minded people for a week who were all supportive and friendly. Loved the liveaboard experience. MY Charlotte is a great boat owned by lovely peopleAnne R, UK - 2023
