The Red Sea is a fantastic location that keeps divers coming back year after year, with dramatic desert mountains and the beautiful blue sea, it’s easy to see why! The Red Sea is a seawater inlet of the Indian Ocean, lying between Africa and Asia, the Red Sea became a popular destination for diving after the expeditions of Hans Hass in the 1950s, and later by Jacques-Yves Cousteau.
