Northern Wreck & Reef

Starting in Hurghada, we can head north to Shab Abu Nuhas to dive the Giannnis D, Carnatic & Chrisoula K. Next to Bluff Point to dive the Ulysses, the Barge and in good weather conditions the Rosalie Moller. From here we make the passage over the central channel to the world famous Thistlegorm. Its quite easy to complete 2 or 3 dives on this facinating wreck and not see it all. While over on the east side we can take in the Dunraven & the Kingstone wrecks. We will have enough time to dive a few of the pristine reefs in and around Ras Mohammed like the Alternatives, Little Crack or Shark Yolanda before heading back to Hurghada. The exact route and itinerary depends on weather conditions.
South Sataya

Fury Shoals comprises of a large system of reefs growing atop of a shallow shelf that stretches 13km off shore to the north of Ras Banus. We will be diving most of the reefs in the area including the famous Sataya (Dolphin House). We plan to be here around mid day when the smaller pods of dolphins congregate to form a huge super pod. It's great fun getting in and out of the ribs snorkelling with them and sometimes they come and play with you.
Deep South & St Johns

Just 10 miles north of the Sudanese border, St Johns reef is the southern most Egyptian reef and one of the best. There are many different dive sites and many more to be discovered. Corals are in mint condition and the fish life thriving. We will also visit the famous St Johns cave system. This is a labyrinth of coral with swim throughs and escape routes to the surface. A facinating place with interesting coral formations and caverns.

North Tour & Brothers

We may start from Hurghada and head south diving the Saleem Express before moving on towards the Brothers. The strong currents on the Brothers bring in big pelagics and encourage the growth of soft coral. Here we will also find the wrecks of the Aumidia & Aidia. From there we can head north to Shab Abu Nuhas to dive the Ginnnis D, Carnatic & Chrisoula K. Next to Bluff Point to dive the Ulysses, the Barge and in good weather conditions the Rosalie Moller.

While over on the east side we can take in the Dunraven & the Kingstone wrecks before heading back to Hurghada. Exact route subject to weather conditions.
Fury Shoals & Daedalus

This is the diving holiday if you want a good chance to see Hammerheads. Daedalus is a reef 50 miles from shore with a british built lighthouse. It has steep walls which attract loads of big stuff. On our last three May trips on Daedalus we saw Hammerheads on the first dive! We had six dives on Daedalus and on four we had Hammerhead encounters. To put the cherry on the cake we also saw Manta rays WOW.

Daedalus, Rocky & Zabargad


This is the diving holiday if you want a good chance to see Hammerheads. Daedalus is a reef 50 miles from shore with a British built lighthouse. It has steep walls which attract loads of big stuff. On our last three May trips on Daedalus we saw Hammerheads on the first dive! We had six dives on Daedalus and on four we had Hammerhead encounters.

Zabargad is situated 46km southeast of Ras Banas and only a few kilometres from the Sudan border. Liveaboard boats use the island as an overnight anchorage for forays to Rocky. The island is a ship's graveyard with Neptuna, a Swiss run diving liveaboard that sank in 1981, The Khanka Russian freighter, which was a spy ship, on the western side of south bay Kno.

Rocky Islet consists of steep, bare rock rising from very deep water about 6km southeast of Zabargad. It has a reputation for sharks and pelagics. The Northern face is open to the full force of the prevailing winds, so divers are dropped here, then swim east round to the calmer waters of the south to be picked up. The narrow sandy shelf that surrounds the islet is widest at its eastern end where, at 25m, it becomes the place to observe sharks and a wide selection of pelagics.


Brothers, Daedalus & Elphinstone

This is the diving holiday if you want a good chance to see Hammerheads and other sharks. They can be found on the Brothers Daedalus & Elphinstone. We may start from Safaga and head south diving the Saleem Express before moving on towards the Brothers which is situated 40 miles out. The strong currents on the Brothers bring in big pelagics and encourage the growth of soft coral. Here we will also find the wrecks of the Aumidia & Aidia. Daedalus is a reef 50 miles from shore with a British built lighthouse. It has steep walls which attract loads of big stuff. On our last three May trips on Daedalus we saw Hammerheads on the first dive! We had six dives on Daedalus and on four we had Hammerhead encounters. To put the cherry on the cake we also saw Manta rays WOW. Elphinstone is a reef 300m long and is only 7 miles out but has a wealth of life swimming round it or growing on it. Always a rewarding dive.
