The most popular diving area in the Red Sea by far is Egypt. But we also have listings and recommendations for dive operators in Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Sudan and Djibouti. As there are so many dive centres in Egypt we've split them up by area.

Books on the Red Sea
- Shipwrecks from the Egyptian Red Sea
- by Ned Middleton, Hardback, Immel Publishing, 196 pages, 2006.
The author spent over 8 years engaged in dedicated research into the many shipwrecks which are found in this part of the world. There are nineteen major featured shipwrecks - including two which are only recently discovered. These are followed by brief details of another eighteen vessels which were too small to be classified as ships - tugboats, barges etc. Finally, there are brief details of approx. 250 additional vessels that are either not yet discovered, far too deep for scuba divers or never even existed.
