Red Sea Diving Live aboard

Day 7, we arrive at Marsa Alam and board Emperor Elite Dive Live aboard for the next 7 Nights and 6 Days of Diving, Nitrox included. Our itinerary is planned to complete some 21 Dives on St Johns Reef Systems and Fury Shoals. Some of the best Diving in the Red Sea. On the way to Fury shoals, dive Sha'ab Sharm with its wall dives and white tip reef sharks. Oceanic whitetips and silky sharks can sometimes be found in the blue and turtles often visit the south side before heading further south. At Fury Shoals, dive Sha'ab Claude with its famous swim-throughs and huge porite corals. Whitetip reef sharks and an anemone and clownfish settlement can be seen a little off the reef to the South. Abu Galawa Soraya has a fantastic coral garden and a wreck of a private sailing boat populated with glassfish. St Johns is a vast collection of small reefs offering some of the most remote and rewarding diving in the Red Sea. Habili Ali offers giant gorgonians and black corals whilst grey reef, silvertip, and schools of hammerhead sharks might be found on the west side. Habili Gafaar is a mass of soft corals teaming with shoals of snappers, butterflyfish, and barracudas. Mantas, grey reef, and silvertip sharks can often be seen in the blue.

Gota Kebir is a massive reef, famous for its tunnels and south plateau, where jacks and barracudas can be seen and the occasional manta. The tunnels are ideal for novice cave divers. Gota Soraya is rated as possibly one of the best wall dives in the Red Sea, with overhangs and cracks in the reef wall full of glassfish and sweepers and an abundance of corals, Grey Reef, Silvertips, and Hammerhead sharks. On the last day as we head back to port, we will try to take in a dive or two on the world famous Elphinstone Reef if weather and diver experience permits us, or we will finish in the Abu Dabab area perhaps with another dive or two closer to Port Ghalib to relax and unwind before your final night in port.
