Itinerary Details

Daedalus, Rocky and St Johns is an week of diving that is as varied as it is enjoyable, with a new dive site just begging to be explored at every stop. Walls, shallow caves, softly draped pinnacles are all on the menu.

Daedalus Rocky St Johns Description

To create the Daedalus, Rocky and St Johns itinerary we have scoured the vast miles of Southern Red Sea and picked out the creme de la creme for your personal diving enjoyment. If you love reef diving then you are guaranteed to fall in love with the variety on this classic Egyptian liveaboard itinerary. Stretching south from Marsa Alam to within a breath of the Sudanese border, get face to face with the remarkable diversity that makes the deep south so rich and rewarding for divers. Walls, shallow caves, softly draped pinnacles are all on the menu alongside pelagic encounters. Marvel at the beauty and splendour on one of our favourite southern Red Sea liveaboard holidays.

Check dive under your belt, the boat sails south. Overnighting to Daedalus, the first of the big wall dive sites looms large. Daedalus is the place for exhilarating drift dives and the first shark sightings. Be it hammerheads at Daedalus or Rocky, grey reefs at Habili Jaffa (or small habilli, St Johns), there is plenty of reason to keep a watchful eye to the blue. Oceanic white tips cruise the shallows in the summer months, right through to the year end. Rocky and Zabagad are mystical islands where ancient ancient Egyptians mined green gem stones from the dusty earth. Slender coral towers and plunging drop offs are the order of the day. Turtles mate on the southern shores of Zabagad. St Johns is only a short hop away where diving is a thrilling mixture of sunken reef tops, steep walls and shallow caves systems. Rare bumphead parrot fish are commonly seen chomping hard corals at Habili Kebr (or big habilil) and Dangerous. Abu Bassala boasts fine anemone gardens, stonefish and baby white tips. The shallow cave systems to the north of St Johns are a fun and unusual dive. Returning north does not mean the end of this itinerary. The succulent coral gardens of Fury Shoal and Wadi Gamal are just as spectacular and finish the week with an exclamation mark.

There are no longer any minimum dives for the Marine Parks but we would recommend around 40 dives. The diverse itinerary makes it ideal for anyone looking for more than just currents and wall diving though. The candy coloured reefs will suit photographers or those divers that just enjoy watching fish act out their daily lives. Night diving is permitted on the itinerary once outside the Marine Parks, where morays, feather stars and Spanish dancers all parade in the dark. No corner of the region, no matter how far flung, is left out and there are walls, pinnacles and caves to keep even the most demanding diver happy. Sailing over night and during the day, you get to every dive site at just the right moment. Daedalus, Rocky and St Johns is a splendid itinerary with diving to match.

Royal Evolution
Royal Evolution will dive the above areas but in a slightly different order. Trips typically start at Elphinstone before heading to Daedalus. After a full day here you sail to Rocky where you spend a day diving Rocky and Zabagad. There are then further days at St Johns and Fury Shoal before the boat heads back to Elphinstone and Port Ghalib.
