We are returning to the Southern Red Sea to do the fabulous Daedalus, Rocky & St Johns itinerary which takes in some of the best sites in the area, and have also added in the Salem Express shipwreck to make it extra special. With walls, pinnacles, caves and night diving the itinerary is packed with action.
Our home for the week, Ghazala Adventurer, is new for 2025 and looks beautiful! All cabins have private en suite bathrooms and air conditioning. There are 12 cabins split between the main and lower deck and the 4 main deck cabins are a mix of twin and doubles. This is a spacious liveaboard that we are excited visiting.
The Daedalus, Rocky and St Johns itinerary combines high octane walls, drifts and sharks with the beautiful reef systems of the southern Red Sea. Stretching south from Hurghada we get face to face with the remarkable diversity that makes the deep south so rich and rewarding for divers. Walls, shallow caves and beautiful pinnacles are all on the menu alongside large pelagic encounters.
Check dive under your belt, the boat sails south. Overnighting to Daedalus, the first of the big wall dive sites looms large. Daedalus is the place for exhilarating drift dives and the first shark sightings. Hammerheads and Mantas are often seen at Daedalus so expect some beautiful dives into the blue to spot these beautiful creatures. Oceanic white tips also cruise the shallows in the summer months, right through to the year end. From there we dive at Rocky and Zabagad and St Johns where diving is a thrilling mixture of sunken reef tops, steep walls and shallow caves systems. Returning north does not mean the end of this itinerary. The succulent coral gardens of Fury Shoal and Wadi Gamal are just as spectacular and finish the week on a high.
The walls and drifts at Daedalus are fairly advanced dives and not suitable for beginners although Rocky and St Johns are suitable for all levels.
This trip is great value as the price includes flights, full board accommodation on the boat, all your dives (including night dives), free nitrox and all food and soft drinks.
