After breakfast, a welcome briefing (organization of the week, safety instructions on board...) will be presented to you by the guide. Your diving documents and insurance will be checked before leaving the marina. The captain will sail to the first dive site 30 minutes from departure. The briefing of the check-dive dive will be presented to you by the guide. The second dive will be done during the afternoon. In the early evening, after dinner, the boat will start its journey towards Daedalus. About 7 hours of navigation will be required. Depending on the weather this program can be modified.

Day 3 :

At sunrise, you will start your day of diving on the Daedalus falls. Your guide will suggest three dives. This reef offers you ten different dives. You will make 2 dives north of the reef for perhaps the chance to observe hammerhead sharks. In the afternoon, you will dive west of the reef where the coral diversity is impressive. This slope also offers perfect light in the afternoon. Between dives, you will have the opportunity to visit the Daedalus lighthouse. In the early evening, after dinner, the boat will continue its journey all night south to arrive in the early morning under the Tropic of Cancer at Rocky Island and Zabargad.

You will make three dives around the Rocky and Zabargad islands. The navigation times between the sites vary from 30 to 45 minutes between the islands. The dive sites are carefully chosen by your guide depending on the weather and the number of boats on the sites.

In the early morning, the captain and his crew will take you to the Saint John's sites. Three dives will be offered to you. Navigation times between sites vary between 30 minutes and 1 hour 30 minutes in the Saint John's area. The dive sites are carefully chosen by your guide depending on the weather and the number of boats on the sites.

That day, we will start the ascent to the north. On the way, we will stop at Sataya (Dolphin house) located in the Fury Shoals area, where you may have the opportunity to swim with the dolphins. We will then continue our ascent to the Sheleneyat site in the Wadi Gemal area, where the third dive of the day will take place at dusk or at night.

In the early morning, you will arrive in the Marsa Alam area, on the mythical Elphinstone Reef. You will make 2 dives there, before sailing another two hours to arrive in the early afternoon at the Port Ghalib marina. You can use the platform to rinse your equipment.
