ELPHINSTONE REEF


one of the most beautiful reefs, with its north and south plateau's covered in hard and soft corals and visiting pelagics, this truly is an awesome reef. It offers colourful scenery and a very good variety of reef fish. The occasional visiting pelagic can make this dive site very interesting.

ST. JOHN


Located on the Tropic of Cancer, this chain of reefs is the furthest South you will get. All its dive sites are very close to each other which mean that you can easily move from one place to another. The marine life and the colours of the soft corals are one of the best in the Red Sea. Exciting drop-offs overgrown with huge gorgonians and colourful soft corals, stunning coral gardens and safe anchorages for night diving. One of these dives is truly unique and is a photographers heaven with rays of light filtering through into the beautiful tunnels. Barracudas, Tuna and Mackerel are often sighted here and on rarer occasions Manta Rays and Dolphins. Hammerheads, Grey sharks, Silvertip Sharks and White tip Reef Sharks can often be spotted out in the blue.

A submerged reef with two main pillars which are easily explored during this lovely dive. The reef and pinnacles are between 5 - 24m to the sand where you will find smaller pinnacles covered in soft corals and marine life. Schools of barracuda, jacks and tuna are common and keep your eye open for Bump Head Parrot Fish.

BROTHERS


The Brothers provides a good mix of wreck and reef diving, with the Aida and Numidia on Big Brother and pristine coral walls surrounding both islands. Sharks and other large pelagics are regularly sighted.
Big Brother a 400 metre long island offering fabulous wreck diving and wall diving. The wreck of the Numidia lies on the northern tip between 10 - 80m. The north-west side of the island houses the wreck of the Aida. On every section of this reef the wall is covered with corals and life.
Little Brother boasts a very high concentration of life within a very small area. Fan coral forests, overhangs, hard and soft corals in a variety of astonishing colours… and of course there are plenty of fish. With regular sightings of hammerheads, thresher sharks, grey sharks and white tip reef sharks, at the right time of year.

DAEDALUS


This huge reef rises from the sea bed in the middle of the Red Sea, easily recognized by its zebra-striped lighthouse. This reef is surrounded by a sheer wall and strong currents allowing for fantastic drift diving. It offers some of the most amazing dives in the Red Sea. The sheer walls are covered in over-grown hard coral formations and a variety of reef fish. Napoleon wrasses and turtles are often cruising by. Daedalus is one of those places where anything can happen... oceanic white tip reef sharks, grey reef sharks, a lonesome hammerhead shark or schools of them.

ROCKY ISLAND 1


hosts a fringing reef that circles the entire perimeter of the island, dropping steeply to astonishing depths, although the most interesting features and life are found above 12m.
ROCKY ISLAND 1

ZABARGAD


The Island of Zabargad is an amazing dive spot. It is characterised by an enormous mountain reaching out of the water, surrounded by a lagoon and circling reef. There are a couple of wrecks and a great variety of corals and reef fish.
