To go back to basics and in order to reduce the long navigations, while taking full advantage of the offshore islands, we decided to bring back the routes “Brothers” and “Deadalus”.
“Deadalus” : Departure from Marsa Galep, we suggest to take your time to enjoy 3 days of the exuberant wildlife around the Deadalus reef. It`s also essential to see Elphinstone on the way back!
This route is accessible to Level2 and Advanced divers with validated 50 dives.
Overview of your program:
The cruise begins on Saturday, at the marina of Marsa Galep. . After arrival at the airport, visa taken and recovering your luggage, you take the road to reach the boat and take possession of your cabin.
The next morning, the boat is heading for the first site for a readapting dive. Quickly, the boat will take the sea to reach the Deadelus reef, surmounted with its typical lighthouse, built by the French in 1931. You will stay for 3 days in the South of the reef, near the dock with access to the lighthouse that you can visit between 2 dives.
In the morning you will make 2 dives, north of the reef, to search in the blue for schoolings of hammerheads. You may have the chance to meet a Manta along the drop. The wall around the reef is full of life: brain coral, soft corals, turtles, carpet anemones … South of the reef, under the boat, you can see longimanus or silky sharks towards the small plateau.
After returning from Daedalus we make a stop at Elphinstone. Although close to the coast, this mythical reef is exposed to currents through which that this site continues to attract important pelagic fauna! The beauty of its corals and his legendary arc, will never ceases to amaze you.
At the end of the cruise, you will spend the last night on board and disembark after breakfast the next day. For organizational reasons, it is possible that there is a transfer back to Hurghada on Friday evening for a night in a 2-3* hotel. Depending on your return flight schedules, at your last day, on-site visits or a swim in the Red Sea from a private beach is possible. Diving Attitude will inform you about all these possibilities and will keep your luggage safe until the time of the transfer to the airport.
