(DAEDALUS Itinerary)

  With awesome visibility and breath-taking soft corals, the Red Sea is one of the most popular dive destinations in the world. There are over one thousand species of fish in the Red Sea, 20 percent of which can be found nowhere else in the world. It is hard to believe that where the Egyptian desert sands end, a marine paradise begins.

Ironically, the desert climate has created an ideal setting for divers. It is one of the sunniest places on the planet, therefore, corals and their tiny guests thrive on an overabundance of solar energy. The Red Sea is the resting place of many intriguing wrecks included several WWII ships that house countless artifacts.

Getting There, Passports & Visa Documentation:
The Hurghada International Airport is approximately 4 hours from Port Ghalib. There is a closer airport, but the flights are less reliable and often get cancelled. Hurghada Interational Airport (HRG):  Turkish Air, Austrian Airlines, Lufthansa & Condor, Egypt Air, Air Berlin
Visitors must have a current passport, adequate funds to support themselves, and a return airline ticket. US citizens require a passport that must be valid for 6 months from date of entry. It is the travelers’ responsibility to ensure they have the proper visa to travel into each country on his or her itinerary as well as for re-entry and return to their country. Since regulations vary by country, contact your consulate or embassy of your country for the requirement.
