The dive sites of Fury and fiends
This tour is focussed on the fury shoal area and her friends are known as Sataya and the areas around Marsa Alam. Fury shoal is known for beautiful hard coral gardens that offer caverns and a coral quality that is quite rare in this world. Some of them are bigger than a car and attract loads of special marine life.
The dive sites in this trip are mostly reefs on a plateau between 20 and 30 meters. Offering a cavern here and there and a few wall dives with the potential of a drift, but no blue water diving. For the divers this means that this tour is for the moderate experienced diver and offers some night diving.
Some of the famous sites of this tour are: Claudio, Malahi, Maksour, Sataya, Stairway to heaven, Shelleniat, Elphinstone, Abu Dahab. And depending on the port you might have a chance to visit (from Hurghada) the Safaga area with Salem Express, Abu Kefan, Middle reef, Panorama and Tobia Arba.
What to see in fury shoal
The reefs of Fury Shoal are known for their stunning and very big hard corals. Especially blue corals are typical as you can hardly find them anywhere in the world. These reefs are the home of a abundance of marine life. From blue spotted rays to loads of morays, scorpion, lion and crocodile fishes, large schools of goat fish, barracuda, turtles, nudi branches and much more. Something special is a chance of dugong if you visit Marsa Shouna close to Marsa Alam. This bay often shows these sea cows next to green turtles and large ray species.
Depending on the time of year sharks can be seen but of course not guaranteed. Species that are likely are longimanus, grey reef and white tip reef shark, plus a chance of a hammerhead here and there.
Fury shoal is known for the dolphin house Sataya where spinner dolphins are seen on a regular basis. These dolphins do not like divers very much but we offer a snorkel with them if they are in the area.
