Aqua Scope

Light Activity /Walking Regent Choice

Duration: 2 hours

Tour Code: SSH-004

This Aqua Scope excursion truly immerses you in the underwater world of the Red Sea, all while staying completely dry! It's a short transfer from the pier to the Aqua Scope dock area where you'll board your unique two-decked touring vessel. The top deck remains completely above water, while the bottom deck remains submerged under the surface of the sea. From this vantage point, you get an unparalleled view of the magnificent and exotic marine life found in the Red Sea region. Your 75-minute cruise will allow you to discover not only colorful tropical fish, but the amazing coral formations hidden in the depths of these pristine turquoise waters.

During the return journey, relax on the top deck while sipping a complimentary soft drink and enjoying the fresh sea breeze and warm sunshine. Arriving back at the dock, your coach stands ready to take you back to the ship.

Please note: This tour is not available to wheelchair guests and is not recommended for those with mobility concerns or those who suffer from motion sickness. Guests must be able to climb the Aqua Scope's ladder to move between decks. Comfortable lightweight clothing, a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen and flat, rubber soled shoes is suggested.
