Deadalus Reef
Daedalus Reef is a huge reef located about 180 km south of Brother Islands. The reef is surrounded by a sheer wall all around, featuring a plateau in its southern side that goes from 28 m beside the reef to 40 m on the edge of the drop-off. If the weather is good, try to get as far north as possible and drift along one of the sides of the reef. Oceanic whit tip sharks and hammerhead are often spotted here and for lucky divers, maybe a manta ray

Rocky Island
Rocky Island is a mythical site that represents the diver’s dream. The fringing reef that circles the entire perimeter of the island drops steeply to an astonishing depth and the constant currents that flow all along the year favor the growth of all different kinds of life in a continuous struggle for a place on the reef. The walls are absolutely covered with the most beautiful soft corals ever found, as well as gorgonians, fans, sponges and black coral trees.

Zabargad Island
Zabargad Island is one of Red Sea Islands within a natural preserve known as Elba National Park. It is an island rich with natural rocks formation, Sea marine life, corals and breeding birds; at least nine species of birds are known to breed there. Octopuses, crocodile fish, and eel fish to name a few are present near its shore. It is still a virgin island rich with various gifts of nature; an excellent place for diving and bird watching, let alone catching the vibes of both the rocks and the sea. The walls are covered in soft corals and huge gorgonians which float and wave in the current. It is possible to sight many species of shark here as well as sailfish, dolphins and manta rays.

St-John’s Reef
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 means that you can easily move from one place to another. It therefore adds a lot of variety to your dives: drop-offs, tunnels and stunning hard-coral formations.

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. Fan coral forests, overhangs, hard and soft corals in a variety of astonishing colors… 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.
