Itinerary Highlights

Elphinstone

Elphinstone

Located 80km east of Marsa Allam, this isolated offshore reef offers some of the more impressive dives in the Red Sea.  Less than a kilometre wide, the reef is adorned with coral walls and filled with a handsome variety of typical Red Sea species. Always remember to keep an eye in the blue where anything can be passing by; oceanic white tips, thresher sharks, mantas and reef sharks are often spotted there. Daedalus is especially known for scalloped hammerhead sharks, which during the summer months can be seen in large schools.

Hamata & Fury Shoal

Hamata & Fury Shoal

An unforgettable area of the Red Sea, Hamata includes the playful cave systems of Claudio and Malahi. Shallow and enjoyable to swim through, these spots are popular with all those who visit them. Fury Shoal is just as pleasant and as a natural habitat for spinner dolphins, it’s a wonderful site to swim with them and watch them play.

St. John's
