Shark encounters increase in Red Sea
Guests reporting more sightings than in previous years
Dive operator blue o two is reporting a large number of shark encounters on Red Sea itineraries over the last month.
The British company runs a fleet of swanky liveaboard boats operating from the Egyptian Red Sea resorts and visiting Tiran, The Brothers, Daedalus and other familiar sites.

Most common sightings include Oceanic Whitetip Sharks, Silkies, Hammerheads and Grey Reef Sharks.
A rarely seen Tiger Shark was also spotted in the south early in July.
There’s been a slight increase in prices due to higher airfares, coming into effect from July 27th.
Currently, there’s availability on all four blue o two boats – blue Fin, blue Horizon, blue Melody and blue Voyager – starting from £849.
