Blue Planet - Daedalus & Fury Shoal
DEPARTING FROM Port Ghalib
Note: Recommended 30 logged dives & PADI Advanced Open Water Diver certification or equivalent recommended.
A great all-round tour for divers with slightly more experience. This safari provides you with some of the best diving in the Red Sea offering challenging dives, big drop offs, beautiful coral walls and plenty of large fish. In the Fury Shoals system, the Sha’ab Claudio captivates divers and enthrals photographers with its shallow swim-through system, perfect for leisurely exploration. With five entrances and exits and shallow in depth, you’re never ‘lost’ and can just enjoy the shafts of light dancing through the caverns. Rays, nudibranchs, large Napoleon wrasse and morays are all frequently spotted here; you may even see a white tip reef shark or turtle pass by.
Sha’ab Sataya is situated at the very south of Fury Shoals; this huge natural lagoon is formed by a massive reef (sha’ab) rising from the depths. The fame of Sataya is its steep drop offs along with pelagic sightings and protected pinnacles smothered in soft and hard corals. But the real stars can be the huge pods of spinner dolphins that frequent here, meaning Sataya has become the ‘Dolphin House’ of Hamata.
Depending on prevailing weather conditions your guides will pick sites suitable for night dives outside the Marine Park.
Elphinstone reef: A Red Sea legend. One of the most beautiful reefs, with its north and south plateau’s covered in hard and soft corals and visiting pelagic, this truly is an awesome reef.
Daedalus: About 180 km south of the Brother Islands you’ll find Daedalus Reef, this huge reef is also part of the Marine Park. It’s a large oval reef with a lighthouse and is the furthest offshore reef in the Egyptian Red Sea. The Reef is surrounded by a sheer wall and strong currents allowing for fantastic drift diving.
Ending in Port Ghalib.
