Croisières plongée - Mer Rouge

Plonger en croisière en Mer Rouge

La Mer Rouge est depuis longtemps une destination favorite des plongeurs souhaitant découvrir des conditions et des sites idéaux gorgés de récifs colorés et d’une grande diversité marine. Les bateaux de croisière plongée en Egypte offrent aux plongeurs du monde entier une expérience incroyable sur certains des meilleurs sites de la région. Différents itinéraires de croisière en Mer Rouge sont offerts pour découvrir des récifs reculés et des épaves de la Seconde Guerre mondiale.

La ‘Mer Rouge’ tirerait son nom des blooms saisonniers d’algues rouges apparaissant à la surface à certaines périodes de l’année. Malgré son nom, les eaux de la Mer Rouge sont incroyablement bleues et offrent une température agréable toute l’année, une visibilité épatante et des conditions de plongée idéales. Certains des meilleurs sites de plongée en Mer Rouge sont reculés, un safari plongée étant dès lors la seule option pour les atteindre.

La Mer Rouge est une extension de l’Océan Indien remontant entre les côtes africaines et asiatiques. La géologie, l’ensoleillement et le manque de ruissellement d’eau douce entraînent une évaporation élevée qui en fait l’une des mers les plus salées sur terre. Cette salinité élevée force les plongeurs à ajouter du lestage pour compenser la flottabilité accrue.

La Mer Rouge est bordée principalement par l’Egypte et l’Arabie Saoudite, mais les itinéraires de croisière en Mer Rouge opèrent principalement des multiples destinations touristiques situées au nord et au sud de l’Egypte. Ces destinations offrent des circuits légèrement différents.

Nord de la Mer Rouge

La région du nord de la Mer Rouge égyptienne est un paradis pour plongeurs. Les itinéraires de croisière explorent la crème des sites tels que le détroit de Tiran et la réserve marine de Ras Mohammed. Les amateurs de plongée épave en Mer Rouge ne devraient pas manquer les épaves SS Thistlegorm et Dunraven. Les bateaux de croisière démarrent des marinas de Charm el-Cheikh, Safaga ou Hurghada pour explorer ces sites.

Sud de la Mer Rouge

Le sud de la Mer Rouge est une fantastique opportunité de s’éloigner de la foule à bord d’un bateau de croisière explorant des sites inatteignables autrement. Vous découvrirez des sites comme le récif de Daedalus, les îles Brothers, St Johns, Elphinstone et Fury Shoals. Les bateaux de croisière démarrent des marinas de Port Ghalib (Marsa Alam), Hamata ou Hurghada pour explorer ces sites.

Comment s’y rendre

Nord de la Mer Rouge – les villes de Charm el-Cheikh et d’Hurghada ont un aéroport international desservi par des compagnies aériennes internationales. Le Caire est l’aéroport international principal d’Egypte et des vols intérieurs rejoignent la plupart des destinations touristiques du pays.

Sud de la Mer Rouge – l’aéroport international de Marsa Alam au sud est desservi par des compagnies aériennes internationales européennes et est proche de Port Ghalib. Des vols intérieurs sont possibles au départ du Caire. Le transfert par route entre Hurghada et Port Ghalib est possible et prend environ 2h30 par trajet.

It was nice, I recommend it for those who'd like to see a lot of fish, soft corals and some awesome hard coral formation. There are a lot of swim throughs too. It is colourful and warm to dive (I used a 3mm shorty with a rashguard).

Overall good. Visibility was 50-75’ and a little disappointing. Had heard visibility was 100’ plus. Many reefs were heavily covered with silt. Some fish species were quite large, e.g. Napoleon Wrasse, Moral eels, which were fun to see. There were lots of colorful tropical fish and a high concentration of Crocodile Fish were seen. After hearing many accolades from other divers and reading about great diving in the Red Sea, I was a bit underwhelmed with the variety of species. After 10 dives (including 2 night dives) I did not see a single crustacean, shark or turtle.

In general, I would summarize the Red Sea as beautiful reefs and anthias. These are some of the prettiest reefs I have seen anywhere in the world (and I have been virtually everywhere, from the arctic to the antarctic and everywhere in between.). The reefs have all the color of Raja Ampat except with super clear water. The down side is that it is rare to see anything larger than a shoebox. A single whitetip reef shark sitting in a hole is a big deal. This is not the place to come for "big stuff."
