Emperor - Red Sea Sharks
Open Itinerary (may include: St Johns - Rocky - Daedalus - Elphinstone - brothers)
from Marsa Ghalib
Please note: You need a minimum number of 30 dives for this trip and should be comfortable with drift dives. Currents can be strong. All of your diving is made from zodiacs to give precise entry and exits points. Experienced divers can dive in a buddy pair unguided. These are challenging dives with strong currents, so this trip is unsuitable for inexperienced divers. The guides may not enter the water and remain onboard as surface support for some dives. No night dives are allowed in the Marine Parks.
Adverse weather can affect this route.
Looking for some shark action? This trip gives you the best chance to see those sharks in action! Explore the majestic southern Red Sea during the warm summer months of May to August with this much anticipated Southern Sharks itinerary offering flexibility and focus for 'action' dives. These months are best-known for the variety of sharks visiting some of the remote offshore reefs. But be prepared to change diving plans at the last minute because this trip goes where the action is.
The guides select the best possible action sites to visit based on their immense local knowledge and on insider-data on recent activity – marine life includes a variety of Red Sea sharks, dolphins and anything else that chooses to join the party.
Some of the sites you might visit are St Johns, Rocky, Daedalus, Elphinstone and Brothers. However, please remember that the focus of this trip is not about where it goes, but about what we want to see... sharks! To that end, if there have been better shark sightings at, say, The Brother's Islands, then we'll head off there to catch the action! And as always, it's subject to weather conditions.
As you may be visiting some of the remote offshore Red Sea reef systems, many of these may be deep drop offs and you may be exposed to strong currents, so be prepared to spend some time waiting 'in the blue', or in the shallows, looking for those unmistakable shapes and shadows.
There are no guarantees in life but one thing is for sure, this itinerary will give you the best chance of close encounters of the 'sharky' kind!
Please note: You are expected to be able to complete each dive with your buddy or following the guide. The guides may not enter the water and may remain onboard as surface support for some dives. As with all diving activities, the dive guide has the final decision regarding any divers competency to complete any particular dive. This is a sample itinerary and is subject to change without notice. The itinerary will depend on several factors including, but not limited to, weather, diving ability of guests & the number of other boats already present at the various dive sites.
