The temperatures of the Red Sea waters are warm enough to snorkel all year round. Keep in mind that the coldest month of the year is January and the warmest months are July and August. Because of the low rainfall in this region of the world, and the absence of rivers flowing into the Red Sea, the water clarity is exceptional, a blessing for divers and snorkelers who can easily marvel at the underwater natural treasures. Moreover, the Red Sea offers all kinds of snorkelling sites, ranging from shallow to very deep sites where free-divers come to challenge their abilities. Currents can also be strong in some places in the Red Sea, but these are usually very predictable. That is why you should always think of asking a diving professional for advice before exploring a new site.
