As the world’s northernmost tropical sea, the Red Sea makes prime diving territory, whatever time of the year you visit.
Even in January, the temperature stays a very toasty 24°C. The summer months of July and August, meanwhile, shoot up to 39°C. And what can you expect in the water? During the winter months, the sea is still a very warm 22°C and in the summer, the mercury hovers around the 26°C mark.
The balmy temperatures mean the Red Sea is home to no-end of marine life. Over a thousand species of fish can be spotted darting in and out of the colourful coral.
And if you’re wondering when peak season for visitors hits, it’s between October and February. For the ultimate diving conditions, though, June to October is your best bet.
