Daedalus Reef, Rocky Island, Zabargad, St. Johns Reefs, Fury Shoal.
A trip offering good potential for a wide mix of pelagic life and fantastic reef corals across a mix of plateaus, walls and drop offs.
Daedalus Reef, part of the Marine Park, is a large, oval reef with a lighthouse and is the furthest offshore reef in the Egyptian Red Sea. Its deep walls and drop-offs offer some of the most spectacular diving in the Red Sea. Daedalus has mountainous, pristine, hard coral formations. There is also a strong chance of spotting schooling Hammerheads, Grey Reef Sharks and Oceanic White Tip Sharks.
Further south are the spectacular overhangs and deep walls of Rocky Island and the abundance of soft coral and spectacular coral pinnacles at Zabargad.
St John's is a beautiful reef system which lies approx. 40km north of the Sudanese border and 20km South of Zabargad.
At Fury Shoals, dive Sha’ab Claude and its famous swim-throughs and huge porite corals. An anemone and clownfish settlement can be seen a little off the reef to the South, along with the occasional White Tip Reef Shark. Abu Galawa Soraya has a fantastic coral garden and the wreck of a private sailing boat packed with glass fish.
Note: Minimum of 50 logged dives required and no night dives permitted in the Marine Park area by Egyptian Law. These are challenging dives, with strong currents, so not for inexperienced divers.
Long overnight sailing is required in order to meet the itinerary. All the dive sites are subject to weather conditions. Only two dives and one night dive are achievable on some days due to the travelling distance.
