Start and end of the tour: Marsa Alam


Experience two weeks of extensive diving pleasure with super service and feel-good ambience on board the MY Red Sea One!

The special highlight of this tour is the Elba Reef, which lies deep in the south in the Egyptian-Sudanese border area. It has only recently become accessible and has never experienced mass tourism. Let’s dive in Egypt 40 years ago! No one knows how long this opportunity will last. Huge gorgonians, black corals, many pelagic fish, also silky sharks, grey reef sharks and even hammerheads can be spotted here. Particularly spectacular is the wreck of the Levanzo, which has been lying there for exactly 100 years at a depth of 18-65m. The aft holds are also easy to explore for recreational divers, the deeper part is reserved for technical divers.

*The trip to Elba Reef is subject to a minimum number of 15 guests. With fewer participants, we stay longer on the reefs of St. Johns, Daedalus, and also have the opportunity to look at such dive sites on our way, which are usually not visited on the one-week “standard tours” due to time constraints.

At Daedalus Reef we will have a very good chance of seeing the resident hammerhead sharks at this time of the year. Thresher sharks and manta rays are also often present.

St. Johns offers so many more fascinating spots besides the well-known top spots (Habili Ali, Dangerous Reef, St. John Caves, …). Sharks, turtles, napoleons, barracudas, nudibranchs – a great variety awaits our shining eyes here!

The Rocky and Zabargad islands further out in the open sea have a special, somewhat mystical aura both under and above water. Perhaps we will meet “our” school of dolphins here again.

The beautiful reefs of the Fury Shoals are also on our route, with coral gardens and caverns such as at Shaab Claudio, but also drop offs with possible shark sightings e.g. at Shaab Maksour. Sataya Reef (Dolphin Reef) is the largest of the Fury Shoals. It is home to a school of dolphins in the lagoon, which can be observed by snorkelling.

Also Elphinstone will not be missing on this tour, where we have as well good chances for big fish encounters in addition to the magnificently overgrown walls and plateaus. Longimani and tiger shark are typical “big ones” here. At the successful end of an unforgettable safari we can still look for dugongs and the giant turtles at Abu Dabab.
