Blue Planet - St. John’s
DEPARTING FROM Port Ghalib
Note: 30 logged dives & PADI Advanced Open Water Diver certification or equivalent recommended.
This tour is slightly more challenging, offering big drop-offs overgrown with huge gorgonians and colorful soft corals. On this safari divers will have the opportunity to explore a variety of truly unique dive sites.
Cave reef: Located one hour north of the main St. John’s area. Have fun finding your way through tunnels and around pinnacles. Beautiful dive site at the Red Sea.
St. John’s Reef: Located on the Tropic of Cancer, this chain of reefs is the furthest South you will get! All its dive sites are very close to each other which means that you can easily move from one place to another. It therefore adds a lot of variety to your dives: drop-offs, tunnels and stunning hard-coral formations. One of these dives (St. John’s Caves or Umm Kharalim) is truly unique and is a photographers heaven with rays of light filtering through into the beautiful tunnels.
St. John’s Reef North: Located one hour north of the main St. John’s area. Have fun finding your way through tunnels and around pinnacles.
Fury Shoal: An immense chain of reefs creating a host of outstanding dive sites including Abu Galawa in the north to Sataya in the south. Have fun exploring caves, tunnels, coral gardens, plateaus and drop offs! Abu Galawa is located within Fury Shoal – have fun exploring the wreck of ‘Tug Boat’. The reef also has good coral dives on the west side.
