    The sea temperature in October averages 27c. I've always found a 5mm shorty more than sufficient for a week of 3-dive days. If you prefer a full suit, a 3mm should be plenty at that time of year.

    In October, water temp should be in the 26-29° range. For me, my 2.5 mm worn out wetsuit is enough, but YMMV.

    And what about late November water temps? Does anyone know the water temp today at Brothers?

    We are booked on King Snefro (4 days, 3 nights) and the flights from Cairo-Sharm-Cairo are only scheduled now 1-2 times per day in Nov/Dec/Jan. In October, they are 7-10 times per day. I am guessing that they have yet to "load" the November flights in the schedule, can anyone confirm that I will have a lot of choices for these flights?

    Not really, these days it's pretty much only Egypt air that flies to sharm from cairo and even then they have cut down the flights a lot. If you fly via Istanbul or jeddha you have more choices. But from when I checked last november it was the same..

    I'm fairly certain EgyptAir (including EgyptAir Express) alone would have at least 3-4 flights to Sharm on any given day, especially in the winter peak season.

    When we were there in November - December, Aggressor told us not to book flight to Sharm because flights get canceled too often.

    If they say not to fly to Sharm, how do they recommend to get there?

    Just yesterday, Egypt Air added 4 flights for the days we are traveling so they must publish their schedule about 6-7 months out.
