Rocky Island Zabargad and ST John's

This dive cruise tries to give you in one week as much as possible: Rocky Island, Zabargad, the vast reef system of St John’s and the most beautiful dive spots on the way back to Marsa Alam. It will be a week of hard working (diving) in sometimes rough sea but the effort will be more than worth it. More information about the dive sites can be found back at the other itineraries.

Rocky Island Zabargad and ST John's

Dive sites

ST. JOHN'S

Located on the Tropic of Cancer, this chain of reefs is the furthest South you will get. All its dive sites are very close to each other which mean that you can easily move from one place to another. The marine life and the colours of the soft corals are one of the best in the Red Sea. Exciting drop-offs overgrown with huge gorgonians and colourful soft corals, stunning coral gardens and safe anchorages for night diving. One of these dives is truly unique and is a photographers heaven with rays of light filtering through into the beautiful tunnels. Barracudas, Tuna and Mackerel are often sighted here and on rarer occasions Manta Rays and Dolphins. Hammerheads, Grey sharks, Silvertip Sharks and White tip Reef Sharks can often be spotted out in the blue.

Elphinstone

There are unlimited points of attraction at this reef and they are all related to the extremely generous reef formation and its location. You can find big marine life hanging around the reed on all sides, at different depths of blue water. You may encounter, schooling fish and Sharks. There are Black Corals, soft Corals, hard Corals, lage fan Corals. The reef is completely covered by these. “Just Stunning”. The reef is so rich with life because it is exposed to a variety of strong currents that feed it with nutriments, enhancing its life. The best time to do the dive here is early morning, while you can see Hammerheads, Grey Reef Sharks, White Tip Reef Sharks, Oceanic White Tip Reef Sharks and Schooling fish such as Barracuda and Snappers. If you are moored at the reef on a sunny morning, when you look at the shore, you will see a solitarily bright Red Mountain.
