This Red Sea safari route is only for selected dates as Dolphin House Reef (Sha'ab Samadai) now has Red Sea safari status and the number of boats and divers are limited to protect the dolphins. Tickets must be booked in advance and fees are to be paid on board.

The South safari route covers the coastline of the Red Sea in the Marsa Alam area which offers world class diving on walls, coral gardens, wrecks and cave systems. As well as stunning hard and soft coral and an impressive variety of fish, you are also likely to encounter sharks; White Tip Reef Shark, Grey Reef Sharks, Hammerheads and even an Oceanic White Tip. One of the best sites to see sharks is Elphinstone, especially if dived early in the morning.

Further south you will visit Sha'ab Sharm with its steep walls and a plateau covers with stunning corals and rich abundance of marine life.

The Fury Shoal Reef system has something to suit all tastes; Sha'ab Claude is an underwater playground with it's grottos, swim throughs and caverns, excellent for great photo opportunities. The tug boat wreck at Abu Galawa is encrusted with beautiful hard and soft corals is inhabited with glassfish, this wreck is also excellent for a truly memorable night dive. You will have another chance to see dolphins at Sataya and Sha'ab Maksour offers superb diving on both it's north and south plateau.
