Our fourth trip to the Red Sea and, as ever, it delivers! Barren desert above and rich
colorful reefs, teeming with life, inches below the surface. We flew Egyptair from JFK
to Cairo then onto Marsa Alam in the southern part of the "Red Sea Riviera"--very
convenient flights through the brand new Cairo airport. Our trips were with Emperor
Divers and we boarded the Emperor Fraser, out to Daedalus Reef then south, almost
as far as the Sudan border to Zabargad, St Johns Reef and the Fury Shoals--an area
we had not been before but certainly want to return to. Our second week was on the
Emperor Elite to the marine parks, the Brothers Islands, remote and offshore and a
return to Daedalus. I was very pleased with the results of my wide angle scenic
pictures--they capture the colorful reefs, festooned with soft corals and the blizzards
of tropical fish swirling around them.
