ST JOHNS

  • St Johns is a vast collection of small reefs offering some of the most remote and rewarding diving in the Red Sea. This incredibly beautiful reef lies a short distance north of the Sudanese border. The reef covers a huge area and many dives would be needed to explore the numerous coral heads and islands. Habili Ali offers giant gorgonians and black corals whilst grey reef, silvertip and schools of hammerhead sharks might be found on the west side. Habili Gafaar is a mass of soft corals teeming with shoals of snappers, butterfly fish and barracudas. Mantas, grey reef and silvertip sharks can often be seen in the blue.
  • The farthest south route is one of the routes with the greatest variety of environments and greatest diversity in the Red Sea. With long navigation distances between the points, it is a route that can be easily adapted to different levels of diving and where we can see unique and exclusive places that only liveaboard ships can access. South stands out for the reef life, coral formations and home to sharks, snorkel with wild dolphins.We will visit the island of Zabargad with its mysterious Russian wreck, its spectacular coral garden and the impressive soft coral walls of Rocky Island where there are great possibilities to find pelagics.
  • In addition, we will visit the submerged Habilis, with its exuberant life and where so many pelagic come to feed, the pinnacle forest of Umm Arouk, the incredible caves of Umm Hararim and the incredible reefs of Claudius, Malahi and Shaab Maksour. We will visit the labyrinth of caves of "Shaa Claudia" in Fury Shoal and we will be dazzled by the play of lights that form underwater, a paradise for the underwater photographer and if the conditions allow it we will explore the reef of Habili Ali in search of the Longimanus. Back to port we will dive in the Marsa Alam area and we will go in search of the Dugongs that inhabit the sand meadows.
