The Red Sea provides a myriad of underwater and inland opportunities: cruise between the finest regions onboard your bespoke Red Sea yacht charter.
Known as the ‘Red Sea Riviera’, the regions that stretch across this coastline offer many different attractions for visitors. The diving in Egypt is world-famous, but if you prefer to explore on land while on a day trip from your superyacht, the Eastern Desert is a must-see. On your journey through this unique part of the world, you will discover ancient rock art and lonely ruins that have survived since prehistoric times.
TJB recommend chartering a yacht in the Red Sea between October and April because of its rich and biodiverse ecosystem. Find your private paradise and dive through reefs, atolls, wrecks and lagoons. The extensive dive sites will allow you to explore the many rare marine species, as well as 200 species of hard and soft corals, attracting countless fish species as well as sharks, dolphins, rays, and turtles.
