The Red Sea is a rich and diverse sea for a seadive. Many species of fish and species of deepwater fish have been found and recorded in the red sea, some of them a can only be found there.  It contains a large coral reef extending along its coastline. These steep fringing reefs are thousands of years old.
 The reefs form platforms, lagoons and other features like cylinders along the coast. These coastal reefs are also visited by sharks.
Divers and snorkellers should be aware of the sharp edges of these reefs. The Red Sea is one of the most saline water bodies in the world, approximately 4 percent. This is due to the fact that the red sea looses more water than it receives back from rain and rivers. The average surface water temperature is about 26 °C (79 °F) in the north and 30 °C (86 °F) in the south, with only about 2 °C (3.6 °F) variation during winter months.
