St John's Reef

St John's Reef is a huge reef of 21 km by 13 km lying below the Peninsula Berenice. This area offers many great dive sites thanks to the many "Habili" – this is a local name given to reefs that rise up to the surface with a plateau situated 60 to 80 metres from the bottom. Habili are only accessible via a liveaboard. The drop offs covered with gorgonians and black corals attract large pelagics, including grey tip and white tip sharks, thresher sharks and hammerheads. Manta rays, groupers and wrasses are also attracted to this area. 


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.
