Taking in the world-famous marine parks at Brothers and Daedalus, this thrilling itinerary of spectacular drop-offs is perfect for divers keen to glimpse some big animals at these remote off-shore reefs. Learn about the biology and behaviours of sharks within the Red Sea with nightly lectures from a representative of "Project Shark".
The aim of 'Project Shark' is to highlight the global issues facing sharks, with a Red Sea focus, as well as enjoying some of the most spectacular reefs that the Red Sea has to offer. The program has been curated by expert dive guide and marine biologist Paul Vinten. Paul and several members of the team are able to deliver this program. During seminars you will have the opportunity to gain an insight to the biology and behaviour of sharks. There is the possibility to learn about this globally endangered marine species and what divers we can do to aid their protection.
A Red Sea legend; a finger shaped reef, with north and south plateaus covered in hard and soft corals. This unpredictable and exciting reef is truly an awesome location where hammerhead sharks are regularly spotted in the summer and oceanic whitetip sharks often congregate in large numbers during late autumn.
This huge tear drop shaped reef rises from the seabed in the middle of the Red Sea. The sheer walls are covered in overgrown hard coral formations and a variety of reef fish. Napoleon wrasses and turtles are often cruising by. Daedalus is one of those places where anything can happen...oceanic whitetips, grey reefs and thresher sharks are often sighted, but Daedalus is most famous for its scalloped hammerhead sharks which can often be seen in large schools out in the blue during the summer months.
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 surprisingly diverse. Each dive site has its particularity: from dolphins, to stunning hard coral formations and not forgetting the two little wrecks "Tug Boar" and the "Yachts".
St Johns Reef
Located on the Tropic of Cancer, this chain of reefs boasts stunning dive sites, most of which are very close to each other allowing you to move quickly and easily from one place to another. This adds to a lot of variety to your dives; drop-offs, tunnels and stunning hard coral formations. One of these dives (St Johns Caves or Umm Caralim) is truly unique and is a photographer's heaven with rays of light filtering through into the beautiful tunnels. The reef formation is not the only thing that will stun you at St Johns; the marine life and colours of the soft corals are some of the best in the Red Sea. With any luck, dolphins or pelagics will join you on your dives and St Johns will forever have a place in your heart.
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.
