Red Sea Explorer
This itinerary covers the coastal section of the southern Red Sea, offering stunning dives on a huge variety of reefs, walls as well as hard coral gardens, teeming with fish life.
Quseir - Fury Shoal
Some of the best dives are made in the early morning, when you are most likely to spot schooling hammerheads and grey reef sharks hovering around the reefs, as on the northern plateau of the famous and exposed reef of Elphinstone with its shear walls covered in soft corals.
Dive on the beautiful hard coral gardens of Samadai Reef, where you will also have be able to swim with large pods of Spinner dolphins that inhabit the inner lagoon.
Erg Wadi Gimal, a magic reef, offering countless rewards for divers and underwater photographers alike, provides the opportunity to observe large schools of tuna and jack fish, and to feast your eyes on big shoals of colourful butterfly fish of different species.
The northern and southern plateaus of Shaab Mahsour are also legendary, offering encounters with hammerheads and turtles, and diving between pinnacles festoned in soft corals. This is the setting for clouds of orange antheas and all kinds of reef fish.
Shaab Claudio, this playground, invites you to explore its shallow and spacious cavern system, penetrated with light, a true maze of a paradise for photographers.
Shaab Sataya, the largest reef system in Fury Shoal, has it all, with shear walls, ancient amphorae and yet another opportunity to swim with pods of playful Spinner dolphins.
Shaab Abu Galawa Saghira with its wonderful hard coral garden in the shape of an amphitheatre is truly memorable.
Finally, for wreck lovers, there is the Tienstin at Shaab Abu Galawa Kebira, a tug-boat, completely taken over by corals and the habitat of mesmerising glass fish.
