The Red Sea, one of the saltiest seas in the world, is located between Africa and Asia and covers around 438,000 km2 (169,100 mi2). Hundreds of hard and soft corals surround this area and are best seen from September to November when visibility is high. The best way to explore the underwater world of the Red Sea is by liveaboard. Diving in the Red Sea you will find unique fish species that you won’t find anywhere else, such as Great seahorse, Starspotted smooth-hound, Deepwater scorpionfish, Glowbelly, and Bigeye houndshark, among many others. Thresher shark and manta ray encounters are also famous in the Red Sea.
