Traveling from Hurghada we will visit ‘The Golden Triangle’ of the Red Sea: The Brother Islands, Daedalus Reef and Elphinstone. It will be high season and we will have a great chance to encounter the Longimanus, the scalloped hammerhead shark, the grey and white-tip reef shark, the thresher shark, the silky and maybe even a tiger.
This week the boat is chartered by an awesome Dutch dive team, however there are options to join them on board.

* The executed route and dive sites are chosen depending on the wind and sea conditions where safety and comfort on board are key. The sea is not a zoo and the expected marine life is a realistic expectation based upon years of experience.
Deep walls and currents are abundant on this tour, making it important that you as a diver are certified and comfortable to go 40 meters as well as going on a drift. Depending on the time of year you might encounter quite a bit of sharks and we will brief you how to handle a dive with these beauties in a safe manner. But because of these sharks it is important that you can keep a good buoyancy and can handle medium strong currents, making this a tour for the experiences diver.
