Itinerary Highlights

Elphinstone

Elphinstone

The Elphinstone reef is located 12km offshore and about 30km from Marsa Alam. Famous for drift dives, these take you along the wonderful deep walls, rich with coral. If you´re lucky you could come across oceanic white tips, hammerheads or reef sharks. With outstanding plateaus on both the north and south sides, you will need a minimum of three dives to fully explore this fantastic dive site.

Safaga

Safaga

Panorama Reef:
A considerably sized reef that gets its name from the panoramic effect of its plateaus and drop off walls, here you may encounter pelagics and the reef is known for its schooling barracuda. Also seen here are blue spotted stingrays, dolphins, reef sharks and giant morays.

Abu Kefan:
The most southern reef of safaga and truly a beautiful site, Abu Kefan is known for its coral formations and pelagic life. Hammerheads are occasionally sighted here as well.

The average depth of this area is 25metres.

Salem Express

Salem Express

A 100m passenger ship on its way back from Jeddah in Saudi Arabia to Safaga, the Salem Express sunk after colliding with reef in that area. The seabed is 29metres and the wreck itself is in decent condition, with several entry points for divers to explore. Since this wreck is ultimately a graveyard, it can be an emotional dive and remains somewhat controversial.
