St John’s and Fury Shoals Reefs


Sailing to the southern-most reefs, these cruises depart from Port Ghalib to the vast reef systems of Fury Shoals and St John’s.




St John’s is a vast collection of small reefs offering some of the most remote and rewarding diving in the Red Sea. Habili Ali offers giant gorgonians and black corals whilst Grey Reef, Silvertip and schools of Hammerhead sharks might be found on the west side. 


Habili Gafaar is a mass of soft corals teaming with shoals of Snappers, Butterfly Fish and Barracudas.  Mantas, Oceanic White Tip, Grey Reef and Silvertip Sharks can be seen in the blue.


Gota Kebir is a massive reef, famous for its tunnels and south plateau where Jacks and Barracudas can be seen and the occasional Manta. The tunnels are ideal for novice cave divers.


Gota Soraya is rated as possibly one of the best wall dives in the Red Sea, with overhangs and cracks in the reef wall full of Glass Fish and Sweepers and an abundance of corals, Grey Reef, Silvertip, Oceanic White Tip and Hammerheads.


Note: a minimum of 40 logged dives requested. Long overnight travel is necessary. However, if the weather conditions are more favourable the travelling will be done during the day.
