Northern Wreck & Reefs Liveaboard
Come join OTA Diving as we take you to our diving home which is the Northern Red Sea! Jeanne and Morad have over 10,000 dives of Northern Red Sea experience between the two of them, and they will be there to make sure you have an absolutely amazing time!
This is the absolute best time of year to visit these stunning wrecks and reefs as summer is when the huge shoals of fish and pelagic marine life visit Ras Mohamed National Park and the Northern Red Sea!
We will visit our most favorite sites in the Northern Red Sea! We spent years diving and guiding the wrecks and reefs of the Northern Red Sea and have created this trip to showcase the best diving of the Glorious Red Sea. Not only that, but we have chartered the entire vessel and hand pick our guests so that we all have a great time together!
This trip is perfect for underwater photography and videography. There is a mix of relaxed reef diving, exciting historic wrecks, dramatic walls and exhilarating drift diving.

Woodhouse Reef: The longest of the reefs, this also has a famous canyon that is reachable to recreational divers. Home of the famous Red Anemone!
Please note: As a 21+ DIVES cruise, there's a good chance to enjoy 21 or more dives on a 7-day safari if you choose to.
You don't need a minimum number of dives, but you should be comfortable with drift dives, as currents can be unpredictable and strong.
If you are an Open Water Diver, some dives are below 18m therefore we recommend having advanced experience or taking your Advanced Open Water course on board to maximize your enjoyment from the trip.
Inexperienced and beginner divers may find some dives challenging but have no fear, with us onboard and with our extensive teaching experience in the Northern Red Sea, we can arrange all the courses you need to feel comfortable in the water and get the most value out of your dives!
This itinerary presents the best of both worlds, where you visit famous wrecks in the northern Red Sea along with some stunning reef diving.
