The Red Sea is unique, formed by a deep geologic rift 1,410 miles long between Africa
and the Arabian Peninsula then flooded by the tropical waters of the Indian Ocean.
Plunging coral encrusted walls, remote islands rising from thousands of feet below
and swirling with clouds of colorful fish, it's one of the great dive destinations of the
world. Surrounded by desert on all sides, there are no rivers pouring sediment into
the sparkling clear water. Surfacing from a dive vividly shows the contrast between
the richness of the life below and the parched, barren landscape, just inches apart yet
worlds away from each other.
