Rocky Island hosts a fringing reef that circles the entire perimeter of the island, dropping steeply to astonishing depths, although the most interesting features and life are found above 12m. Watch the blue for life but take care for the currents.

The Island of Zabargad is an amazing dive spot. It is characterised by an enormous mountain reaching out of the water, surrounded by a lagoon and circling reef. There are a couple of wrecks and some decent diving with a great variety of both corals and reef fish.

 

Day 4:  Fury Shoals

This large cluster of reefs offers unforgettable and easy dives. From the northern site of Small Abu Galawa to its most-southern site of Sataya, Fury Shoals can prove to be surprising and diverse


Day 5: Daedalus

Daedalus is a huge reef formation that lies at about 180 km south of Brother Islands. The reef is surrounded by a sheer wall and strong currents allow for fantastic drift diving. The hard corals grow to huge sizes but also keep an eye on the blue!

 

 

Day 6: Elphinstone Reef

 This is a legend in the Red Sea. One of the most beautiful reefs, with its north and south plateau's covered in hard and soft corals and visiting pelagics, this truly is an awesome reef. Due to the locations of the dive sites visited on this itinerary there will be a substantial amount of travelling during the safari.
