Details

Hurricane (click for details)

Hurricane has won Liveaboard of the year many times and is a firm favourite amongst divers. At 36 metres there is plenty of space for all 22 guests. All cabins have en-suite bathrooms and air conditioning and are a mix of twin and doubles. There is a comfortable communal saloon and dining area, 2 sun decks, jacuzzi and spacious dive deck.  

 

We are doing the incredible St Johns itinerary which covers some of the most beautiful reef systems of the southern Red Sea.  Stretching south from Marsa Alam 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 the possibility of large pelagic encounters. 

Check dive under your belt, the boat sails south.  From there we dive at Fury Shoals and then St Johns is only a short hop away where diving is a thrilling mixture of sunken reef tops, steep walls and shallow caves systems. Rare bumphead parrot fish are commonly seen chomping hard corals at Habili Kebr. Abu Bassala boasts fine anemone gardens, stonefish and baby white tips. The shallow cave systems to the north of St Johns are a fun and unusual dive. 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.
