Itinerary Highlights


This tour takes in the best of what the Red Sea has to offer with a collection of some of the best dive sites, including Elphinstone, Daedalus, Rocky Island and the Island of Zabargad. World famous dive sites make up this memorable itinerary that is as interesting as it is unique…


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 Reef: About 180 km south of the Brother Islands, this huge reef is surrounded by a sheer wall and strong currents allowing for fantastic drift diving. The hard corals grow to huge sizes but make sure you also keep an eye on the blue!


Zabargad: 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 a great variety of corals and reef fish.


Rocky Island: 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 as there can be strong currents.


Night diving and snorkelling will only be allowed on some parts of this itinerary as it includes marine parks where this is prohibited.
