During this week we offer a series of workshops where you learn a lot about sharks. Not only how to dive with them, but how they eat and mate, how to recognize different species, the history and how they are threatened to extinction. Plus we will seek the best spots to go diving with them.
Required AOWD + 30 dives
Dive Sites of Shark week
Shark week is an add-on onto an itinerary that is likely to give us divers some nice shark action. Suitable areas are:
- The Brother Islands
- Daededalus reef
- Rocky & Zabargad
- Sain Johns
What to see in shark week
As our focus lies on diving with sharks we will spend quite some time in the blue seeking them. Shark that are commonly seen are:
- Whaleshark during the summer
- Silky shark
- Thresher shark
- Grey reef shark
- White tip reef shark
Species that are out there that are seen but not commonly: tiger shark, Maco shark and the Silvertip.
Of course we will spend time on the reef in every dive. So depending on where we are traveling we are likely to encounter turtles, dolphins, murals, eagle rays, blue spotted rays, marbled rays, reef fish, scorpion and stone fish and much more.

In organizing trips we believe that even though we do want everybody to be happy, still safety will come always first! We would like you to be more than safe, we would like you to feel at home. Therefor we prefer big boats for relatively smaller groups, so that we can travel comfortably. We like well organized trips where we dive in small groups (guided or unguided) and usually come with extra dive guides. So that we can customize to your needs, give briefings, courses and workshops in Dutch, German, English and Arabic (other languages are possible at request).
