See the unique lighthouse of Daedalus from a distance. If you're lucky, you'll see hammerhead sharks and Longimanus. Drift along the steep walls and enjoy the view. Afterwards, experience the incredible beauty further south.
The St. Johns Reefs, deep in the south of the Egyptian Red Sea, a real treasure. Due to their remote location, the reefs are less frequented and are in top condition. St. Johns offers a variety of reefs for great variety. Great coral reefs covered with hard and soft corals, steep walls, caves, tunnels and overhangs. Also worth a look in the blue water for big fish encounters. The reefs are close together, so you can visit several of them per day. On this tour we do 3 dives per day except on the first and last day and where possible also a night dive.
Daedalus: You can also spot this island from far away by its big lighthouse, which shows the way and simultaneously warns of the danger.
The dives at Daedalus are beautiful and varied. One can have calm conditions, but also forceful currents, that one sees the reef only passing by. Usually, you let yourself drift from the north along the west or east side.
At the northern tip you have a superb chance to meet hammerhead sharks.
Habili Ali is one of the biggest reefs, covered with big black fan corals. Also, here it is always worth a look into the blue, something big can swim by at any time. Umm Kaharim, means mother of the caves. A spectacular dive site with a colourful reef and many caves and canyons. Incredible light effects and a paradise for macrophotography. There is a lot to discover from big scorpion fish to nudibranchs, shrimps and crabs. Gota Soghayr is a small reef with steep walls. Often Napoleon's fish are found here and with luck you can also see buffalo head parrotfish. There are many overhangs and a small cave. Gota Kebira is an 800 m long reef, which is ideal for drift dives. In the north there is a plateau where the currents separate and offers a great chance for shark encounters. The southern plateau is home to unicorn fish and often turtles.
Habili Jaffar is a small oval reef, which is part of the reef system known as St. Johns. The average depth of the dive site is 3-30 m with visibility up to 30 m. With deep walls that drop off on all sides, this is an ideal place for all divers.
Dangerous Reef is the southernmost reef in St. Johns. Although it has a "dangerous" name, it is an ideal anchorage and excellent for night dives. There are many crevices in the reef, which you can easily and safely dive through.
On the way north you pass the reefs of Fury Shoals.
