Fury Shoal


marsa alam - fury shoal - marsa alam

This week long itinerary begins and ends in Port Ghalib and offers divers stunning diving experiences along the reefs in the southern Red Sea.

Day one is a leisurely start and includes 2 check-out dives at nearby Marsa Alam sites. After a possible  third or night dive, the boat sails south overnight towards Fury Shoal. Divers can expect frequent shark encounters and plenty of larger reef fish as well as pelagic species due to the proximity of the reefs to deeper waters.

The boat cruises the best sites of Fury Shoal over the next three days. Enjoy 3-4 dives each day and a possible night dive at different locations along the vibrant reefs. 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 Shoal can prove to be surprising and diverse. Each dive site has its particularity: from dolphins, to stunning hard coral formations and not forgetting the two little wrecks "Tug Boat" and the "Yacht".

On day six the boat sails back towards Marsa Alam. Today you make 2 dives either at the legendary Elphinstone Reef (weather permitting) or in the Marsa Alam area where there are regular sightings of sharks, turtles and if you're lucky, dugong.

The week culminates with two further dives in the Marsa Alam area on the final day before heading back to port where you remain on board for the final night.
