Opinion on going to a liveaboard in the red sea in february?

I am looking at a liveaboard in the red sea in february 2019.

Has anybody been there at this time of year?, have read that it can get cold weather and cold seas.

also looking for shark diving.

Also anyone can recommend on which liveaboard is better, My blue seas Vs MV Emperor Asmaa?

Thank you all!

Hurghada Hotels with good shore based diving\snorkeling?

Being the only diver in my family, sneaking off day after day to dive doesn't always go down well....just wondering if there are any hotels with particular stretches of shoreline that will offer great snorkeling or shore diving?

Also, my son will be 8 by the time we go, so a hotel with an on site presence so he can try the introduction in the pool would also be great to have?

Many thanks, James

Don't head to Hurghada in case you want to dive - better head to Port Ghalib/Marsa Ghalib if you're looking for good shore based diving

Somehow found this site by accident and will update UAE information as some of it appears to be rather dated.

Anyone looking for information in diving in UAE is welcome to contact me.

I have no affiliations to any dive centre as I use several dive ops to access sites mainly on the east coast of UAE around Fujairah, Dibba, Al Aqah and Khorfakkan.

Didn't expect anything, thus was surprised

We dived 3 days with local dive center Aquarius.

Pros: Lots of turtles everywhere, nice coral, met many shrimps and curious unicornfishes on the night dive. We were lucky to spot dugong and dolphins.

Cons: Problems with organization, necessity to ride zodiacs(due to them I have problems with knees now)

In addition to that we spent 1 week on a liveaboard and must admit that 80% of nice videos I shot were during those 3 days of diving with Aquarius (Karim is the best guide ever!)

See also a link to my video (almost all of it was shot in Port Ghalib except for the sharks and barracudas that were in remote areas where we headed during liveaboard trip)
