A Red Sea legend. One of the most beautiful reefs, with north and south plateau's covered in hard and soft corals. This is a truly awesome reef.
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 wrecks, 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.
St. John’s Reef
Exciting drop-offs overgrown with huge gorgonians and colourful soft corals, stunning coral gardens and safe anchorages for night diving. Barracudas, Tuna and Mackerel are often sighted here and on rarer occasions Manta Rays and Dolphins. Hammerheads, Grey sharks, Silvertip Sharks and White tip Reef Sharks can often be spotted out in the blue.
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. Due to the locations of the dive sites visited on this itinerary there will be a substantial amount of travelling during the safari. This may mean that it is only possible to complete 3 dives on certain days.
