Itinerary Highlights

Get away from the crowds to dive among the coral encrusted reefs and over hangs of the souther Red Sea. Covering the reef systems of St Johns, Fury Shoals, and Elphinstone this itinerary shows you the beauty of the deep south. Learn about the biology and behaviours of sharks within the Red Sea with nightly lectures from a representative of "Project Shark".

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.


Elphinstone Reef

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.


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 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.
