Semi-submarine, Ras Katy reef, Red Sea, Sharm el Sheikh

If you don’t swim, snorkel, freedive or scuba dive, how do you get to enjoy the miraculous underwater world of Egypt’s Red Sea? A trip on a semi-submarine.

Submarines are not permitted in the Red Sea, so this is a semi-sub. The deck stays above water, the hull has large windows for you to watch from, and you can move from one side of the sub to the other as more interesting marine life presents on each side. This is a much more immersed experience than a glass-bottom boat.

Banks of corals, schools of fish, and the simple pleasure of sunlight filtering through the water, were accompanied by exclamations in Italian, Russian, German, English and a few other languages from the tourists around us. A guide drew our attention to different species of fish and coral as they passed us, or we passed them.

Enjoy this video and the slideshow above, and multiply the beauty by 5, then you will get some idea of the experience. This video and photos were taken on a basic camera and could not fully capture the colors or the perspective of what you actually see when you look directly through the windows. You can photograph and video your own experience, or you can just sit and take it all in.

Nature Travel can arrange your semi-sub experience and show you much more of Egypt.
