Aggressor Adventures this week announced the addition of a new liveaboard vessel for its Red Sea fleet.
The Red Sea Royal Evolution (RE) Aggressor joins the Red Sea Aggressor II and Red Sea Aggressor III, which offer diving throughout Egypt to Ras Mohamed and the Straits of Tiran, along with the Nile Queen, the company’s Nile River cruise vessel.
Beginning this month, the Red Sea RE Aggressor will offer three separate itineraries to Sudan, Deep South Sudan and Deep South Egypt. All Sudan and Deep South Egypt itineraries will depart from and return to Port Ghalib, Egypt. The vessel will depart from Port Ghalib to the remote Swakin Islands including Masamarit, Loka and Dahrat Abid, and will return via Sha’ab Rumi, Abington Reef, Pfeiffer Reef and St. John’s Reef.
Deep South Egypt itineraries are eight days and begin diving at St. John’s and Dangerous Reefs. The week commences with stops at Fury Shoal and Dolphin House. Travelers will spend two days at Zabargad and Rocky Islands, where swift currents draw manta rays, dolphins and silvertip sharks.
Fourteen-day Sudan itineraries have check-out dives at Fury Shoal before cruising south to the Umbria Wreck and the Sanganeb Plateau. Additionally, Sha’ab Rumi is home to Jacques Cousteau’s Conshelf II underwater structures as well as hammerhead, grey and silky shark encounters.
According to Aggressor Adventures CEO Wayne Brown:
“We’re excited to add the Red Sea RE Aggressor to our offerings in Egypt, which is already one of our most popular destinations. The Red Sea is one of the most spectacular diving destinations in the world due to its incredible visibility and breath-taking soft corals. These pristine waters and rarely visited sites offer astounding shark dives with massive schooling hammerheads, whale sharks, grey and silky sharks. We know our customers are going to love this addition to our offerings.”
