    Everything in summer, except OWT which is possible anytime, but the best time is mating season in fall (October/November).

    June 2018 - I saw:

    1. A bunch of Oceanic White Tips
    2. One Thresher
    3. 4-5 Hammers
    4. 1 manta
    5. Dolphins on the surface only

    What I REALLY wanted to see I didn't - which was a dugong.

    I am going on the Aggressor III on April 24 (BDE) and the Aggressor II (Northern Red Sea, Ras Mohamed, Straits of Tiran) on May 1st.

    Dependent, of course, on whether or not the trips get confirmed. I'll give a trip report when I get back if you'd like.

    For a live aboard, try Dive Mania - the operator's name is Haitham, he's very cool, speaks perfect English and French. I've been diving with him a lot, did my advanced course with him, and did a New Years Even live aboard trip with him. Dive Mania is really active on Instagram, so you can get a good feel for the trips there.

    For the big fauna, the southern Red sea is awesome. I have not done Brothers or Daedalus, but I have done Elphinstone and two dozen other sites along the mainland coast.

    For dive resorts, my favorite is Marsa Shagra. Lots of options, for both shore and boat dives; they visit most of the best sites from Quesir to Fury Shoals, and you will never find a more professional diving experience that is, at the same time, as accommodating as you could ask for.
