Check out what we got up to on our freediving holiday in the red sea in our latest film! See our team of freediving girls diving incredible wrecks, including The Thistlegorm and The Barge, plus diving on pristine reefs and with rays and dolphins.

We set off for our freediving holiday in the red sea in Dec 2016 and our destination was Hurghada where we boarded the Whirlwind boat. The Whirlwind is a specially designed diving boat and set up perfectly for freedivers and scuba divers alike.

Freediving holiday in the red sea itinerary

When you come on a Freediving holiday in the red sea with us you spend all week onboard and this gives us the chance to dive a huge variety of locations all around the northern red sea.

The week started with a check dive at Dolphin House on the way from Hurghada to the Sinai peninsula. This is an ideal place to see dolphins and on our return trip there at the end of the week, look what we found!

We then travelled up the Sinai peninsula to dive incredible reefs such as the ‘BBC’ pinnacle and Stingray station which are part of the Alternatives string of pinnacles. Also Gordon and Jackson Reef, Laguna, and Temple.

The highlight for me is always freediving on the Thistlegorm, one of the most famous wrecks to dive in the world and one that is easily accessible for freedivers.

On the way back to Hurghada at the end of the trip, we also got to spend a day at the Barge, another amazing wreck for freedivers and an absolute haven for wildlife (and more dolphins!).
