Photo by: Kevin MooreWith the Red Sea having a little too much of the good things on offer, it’s easy to retreat into clichés when writing about diving there. Aquamarine, turquoise, azure, pristine, crystal clear, gin-clear, mind-blowing, brilliant, gorgeous, luxuriant, hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands and (my own favorite)… heaps. There’s also so much already written about the Red Sea, this has been another problem since I started this assignment – how do you make a new approach when covering good boats operating in good areas? It’s hard to write something fresh about the Red Sea, but I’ll give it a go.
Simply put, the Red Sea is the best diving in the world. Sure, Micronesia’s Truk Lagoon is the place to go (cliché: hotspot) for wrecks, but it isn’t famous for big fish and the vis isn’t always great. Indonesia has a large diversity (cliché: richness) of marine species and incredibly thick layers of invertebrate growth, but again the visibility isn’t always the best and it can be expensive. Fiji has lots of colour, better visibility and lots (cliché: thousands) of small colourful reef fish, but it’s not famous for big fish and it too, can be expensive. The Coral Sea with its large pelagics and sharks, but no wrecks. Maldives has (cliché: awesome) drift diving but since El Nino bleached its reefs in 1998…!? Sure, other places may have individual aspects of interest, but the Red Sea has more ticks on that all important list of “What Divers Want” than any other place in the world.
