Dive the Red Sea this October I Wrecks & Reefs aboard Cyclone I £1295 I 22 October

October is a really popular time of year to dive the Red Sea as the sightings are incredible. The air temperature has dropped to the mid 30’s and the sea is starting to cool meaning the sharks start to reappear at shallower depths. The Wrecks & Reefs itinerary is perfect for any diver wanting to see the best of the Northern Red Sea, with world class wreck dives and breathtaking reef dives every day.

Cyclone features the tried and tested layout of all Tornado Marine Fleet vessels. The all important dive deck is spaciously laid out so everyone can kit up without fighting for space. Head to the main deck dining room at meal times and an outstanding feast awaits. The upstairs saloon is complete with a bar and the plasma screen is a focal point at the end of the day or during surface intervals. Or escape from it all on the extensive sun deck, complete with sun beds and jacuzzi. Cyclone is a true Red Sea classic liveaboard that easily meets the high standards of Scuba Travel’s modern Red Sea vessels.

  • 7 nights full board, return flights to Hurghada, up to 22 dives per week
