This safari is suitable for open water divers but can be challenging, offering big drop-offs overgrown with huge gorgonians and colourful soft corals. Divers will have the opportunity to explore a variety of truly unique dive sites home to some very interesting and unusual reef formations.

St. Johns Reef
Exciting drop-offs overgrown with huge gorgonians and colourful soft corals, stunning coral gardens and safe anchorages for night diving. 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.
St. Johns Reef North
Located one hour north of the main St.John's area. Have fun finding your way through tunnels and around pinnacles.
A Red Sea legend. One of the most beautiful reefs, with north and south plateau's covered in hard and soft corals. This is a truly awesome reef.
An immense chain of reefs creating a host of outstanding dive sites including Abu Galawa in the north to Sataya in the south. Have fun exploring caves, tunnels, coral gardens, plateaus and drop offs! Abu Galawa is located within Fury Shoal - have fun exploring the wreck of 'Tug Boat'. The reef also has good coral dives on the west side.
