A great all-round tour for divers with slightly more experience.

This safari provides you with some of the best diving in the Red Sea offering challenging dives, big drop offs, beautiful coral walls and plenty of large fish. In the Fury Shoals system, the Sha’ab Claudio captivates divers and enthrals photographers with its shallow swim-through system, perfect for leisurely exploration. With five entrances and exits and shallow in depth, you’re never ‘lost’ and can just enjoy the shafts of light dancing through the caverns. Rays, nudibranchs, large Napoleon wrasse and morays are all frequently spotted here; you may even see a white tip reef shark or turtle pass by. Sha’ab Sataya is situated at the very south of Fury Shoals; this huge natural lagoon is formed by a massive reef (sha’ab) rising from the depths. The fame of Sataya is its steep drop offs along with pelagic sightings and protected pinnacles smothered in soft and hard corals. But the real stars can be the huge pods of spinner dolphins that frequent here, meaning Sataya has become the ‘Dolphin House’ of Hamata. Itinerary highlights include: Elphinstone reef: A Red Sea legend. One of the most beautiful reefs, with its north and south plateau’s covered in hard and soft corals and visiting pelagic, this truly is an awesome reef. Daedalus: About 180 km south of the Brother Islands you’ll find Daedalus Reef, this huge reef is also part of the Marine Park. It’s a large oval reef with a lighthouse and is the furthest offshore reef in the Egyptian Red Sea. The Reef is surrounded by a sheer wall and strong currents allowing for fantastic drift diving.

Daedalus Reef

Marsa Alam, Red Sea

A huge round reef with a lighthouse more than 40 miles away from the coast, features an excellent opportunity for spotting big pelagics including manta rays. All around its steep walls you will see an extreme variety of fish and coral. Good chance to see schooling hammerheads on the northern point. Strong currents possible.

The reef is located just to the north of Shadwan Island and this area is covered with wrecks. The wrecks are located on the north side of the reef with the main ones being the Giannis D, the Carnatic, the Chrisoula K and the Kimon M.

SS Thistlegorm

Hurghada, Red Sea

The Thistlegorm was discovered in 1956 by Jacques Cousteau and is probably the most famous wreck in the world. It sank in 1941 when it was hit by a German bomb that blew a hole in the port side, igniting tank ammunition that was in the hold. The explosion ripped the roof of the ship backwards, rather like opening a tin of sardines.
The stern section of the wreck lies almost horizontal to the sea bed; the remainder of the wreck is nearly upright. Inside the wreckage, tyres, tanks, motorbikes, Bedford trucks, waders and Wellington boots can be seen. Penetration is possible around the bridge and blast area. The large prop is still in position and the guns on the stern are in excellent condition.
Artillery litters the blast area. A bath tub can be seen towards the bow and a toilet near the stern. The sea life is impressive with possibility of seeing tuna overhead the resident turtle. Expect this to be very busy, especially once the day boats have reached it; it is likely to be chaos both on the surface and under the water.

Brother Islands

Hurghada, Red Sea

The offshore islands in this area have recently been reopened for diving after a long closure by the Egyptian Government and have been designated as a Marine Park. Now suitable moorings are installed for dive boats visiting this area. The Brothers are really the tops of two undersea mountains these islands rise from the depths, the coral clad walls do offer outstanding diving with plenty of big fish action due to there remote location some 80km offshore.

Fury Shoals Reef System

Marsa Alam, Red Sea

Shag Rock

Sharm El Sheikh, Red Sea

Shag Rock is a large circular reef with two small wrecks on it. The Carina is a broken up wreckage of a 19th Century steamship that you drift past quickly. The kingston is another 18th century steamship, but is more intact than the Carina is. The reef makes quite a good dive with lots of branching coral, butterfly fish, yellow goatfish, sweet lips and sea cucumbers.

  • Diver Level: Open Water Diver
  • Max Depth: 16m

Giannis D

Hurghada, Red Sea

This Greek freighter hit the reef in April 1983 and over the course of two weeks slowly broke into two parts and sank. She is the most dived wreck in the area, laying in 24 metres and leaning to port with a fully intact stern section and an impressive engine room packed with glass fish.

The bow is very interesting too but is a long swim out. She is a great wreck for penetration but beware of disorientation due to the angle at which she lays. Be wary of the many lion fish and scorpion fish that call this wreck home and watch out for the strong surges in and around the wreck in rough weather.

Carnatic

Hurghada, Red Sea

The Carnatic is a British P & O steamer which struck the reef in 1869 and sank the next day as the weather worsened. She was a passenger and mail ship and is sometimes known as the ‘wine’ wreck for the numerous bottles once found in the holds; sadly not many now remain to be seen. Rumour has it that she sank with forty thousand pounds sterling of gold bullion, much of which was never recovered. The wreck lays in 29m and now the whole hull is draped in multicoloured soft corals and the inner areas are full of glass fish complete with red mouthed grouper sentinel. One davit supports a beautiful table coral. The wreck is now home to large grouper, octopus and morays and jacks and tuna cruise overhead.
