When Is the Best Time
The Red Sea is a year-round destination for diving. The main season starts in May and lasts until November with its peak in summer in July and August the European school holidays.
The best months with pleasant water temperatures around 28°C are from June to September. October and November are a little bit cooler, therefore, less busy.
Strong winds can occur during autumn, the reason the apparent air temperature is chilly when getting out of the sea.
The biggest chance for spotting big fish is from September to November when they migrate from the south to the north with colder ocean currents.

Location and Tips
The reef of Abu Nuhas in the Red Sea is also called "The Ship's Graveyard". Four wrecks are accessible for divers. Giannis D. is one of the most exciting wrecks for diving. The cargo of the almost 100 meters long ship was wood when it sank in 1983. It hit the reef and split into two halves. The wreck lies in depths between 4 to 27 meters which makes it easily accessible for beginners and experienced divers as well. It's great to dive zigzagging through the corridors and the engine room.
