This itinerary is unique to say the least, and delivers something for everyone. Wrecks, reefs, walls, and big stuff!
It all starts from Marsa Alam, and the check dive is immediately looking for the residents at Dolphin House before heading South to the Fury Shoals. Here, the first of the wrecks, the Old Barge, appears on the itinerary, and expect plentiful resident marine life. The surrounding reefs deliver the goods for critter hunters and macro photographers, and then it is off to Zabargad to dive the super secret Russian Spy shipwreck! Zabargad offers unprecedented reefs where coral and marine life are in healthy abundance, and the caverns are just spectacular. Rocky Island, the next stop on this tour, has amazing wall dives, and is probably the hottest spot for shark and dolphin encounters in the Red Sea.
And then it is time to head to the North - Was Banas delivers the SS Turbo wreck, an intact tanker that is a truly special dive, followed by the wreck of a trawler at the lighthouse, and then the colourful Hamata.
The final stop own the tour is how to end a trip on a big bang - it is Elphinstone, the legendary offshore reef and home of the Oceanic white-tip shark and some of the most amazing wall diving there is.
Six days of diving will top up your logbooks nicely before it is time to head back to Marsa and then the choice to spend the last night on board or at Roots (if departing Hurghada) is available.
