Elba 7 Night - Ghani - DUNE Liveaboard



Elba 7 Night – Ghani

8 Days

Trip itinerary

Our team will welcome you at the airport. You will be transferred by bus to the marina. Your cabin will then be assigned to you, and you can finally explore the boat.

Day 2 :
Dive Check

Morning starts with breakfast, followed by a welcome briefing (week's schedule, onboard safety instructions, etc.) presented by the guide. A check of your diving documents and insurance will be conducted before leaving the marina. The captain will set course for the dive site, approximately 30 minutes from the departure marina.
The 'reorientation' dive briefing will be given by the guide. After lunch, you will sail south to arrive in the Elba area the following morning.

For the first day on Elba, you will arrive at the Shaab Kabrit reef to conduct two daytime dives on the 'Isola di Levanzo' wreck. The third dive of the day will be a night dive.

Continuing within the Elba Nature Reserve, the captain will take you to Gota Kabrit, where you will dive alongside beautiful anemones and their loyal residents, the clownfish. After a 1-hour and 30-minute journey, a second dive will be conducted at the Habili Shalal site. Finally, a last dive will be offered at the Ohrob site, a 2-hour and 30-minute navigation away.

At sunrise, the captain and his crew will take you for a day at two sites near Saint John's before beginning the journey back north. On the way, we will stop halfway between the Saint John's area and the Fury Shoals for a legendary dive: the caves of Um Kararim. In the afternoon, we will arrive at Sataya (Dolphin house) located in the Fury Shoals area. Once on-site, depending on the light or the arrival time, you will have the opportunity to engage in a snorkeling session with the dolphins (scuba diving is prohibited in the bay). The boat will remain anchored at Sataya for the night.

If the snorkeling session with the dolphins could not be
organized the previous day, we will arrange it this morning.
Your guides will then take you to explore two reefs in the
Fury Shoals area. After lunch, the captain will sail north for
about five hours to arrive at the Sheleneyat site. This third
dive will take place at dusk or night, depending on our arrival
time. After dinner, it's time for festivities!

Day 7 :

You will sail for 45 minutes to reach the site for your first dive. After breakfast, you will depart for a two-hour navigation and arrive in the Marsa Alam area, where the last dive of the cruise will be offered. Afterward, you will have the opportunity to rinse your equipment on the boat's rear platform before sailing for 30 minutes to the Marsa Alam marina. Arrival is expected around 2:00 PM, and as a result, your guide will offer some activities to keep you occupied in the afternoon if you wish. You also have the option to stay on the boat.

Day 8 :

Departure from the boat after breakfast or earlier depending on your transfer time to the airport or hotel
