Snorkeling in the Red Sea

Snorkeling the Red Sea near Jeddah


I consider myself very fortunate to have had the opportunity to enjoy exploring the underwater marvels of the Red Sea regularly in the 1990s when I lived in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.The Red Sea is best described as an underwater tropical forest. This is in stark contrast with the sterile desert bordering its shores.The following pages describe what marvels one can be seen in the Red Sea. The underwater pictures were taken with a cheap single use camera, and therefore the quality is not really great. There is no real alternative though, because underwater cameras are very expensive.
