Award-winning diving tour operator, blue o two, are delighted to announce their brand new technical diving itinerary in the Red Sea, ‘North Red Sea by Tekstreme Diving’.
Technical diving is fast becoming a popular extreme sport with divers looking to go that bit deeper, for that bit longer and see that little bit more in a safe way. Join blue o two with Tekstreme and travel along stunning walls, through deep wrecks and into silent canyons that are teeming with marine life; that’s the incredible journey and adventure offered to you with Tekstreme.
Guests that book onto this itinerary on board one of their newly updated Red Sea fleet vessels will have the chance to dive and explore the northern end of the Red Sea where the area is especially rich in coral and other marine biodiversity, as well as a great mixture of wrecks. This northern technical safari will feature a variety of diving locations including Wreck of the Lara, Wreck of the Gulf Fleet and Thomas Canyon.
Itinerary highlight Wreck of the Lara lays on the north side of the Jackson Reef where the skeletal remains of the mysterious Lara wreck live. A unique dive, Wreck of the Lara provides divers with open bulkheads and debris fields to explore. A highly technical dive due to the position of the wreck, Wreck of the Gulf Fleet is adorned with beautiful corals, with lionfish and Napoleon Wrasse regularly spotted making home here.
Divers on this brand new itinerary will also have the chance to explore Thomas Canyon which ranges 40 – 90m and is home to three impressive arches. There is a variety of marine life on the main reef wall and sightings of tuna, fusiliers and blue fin are common.
