With the Egyptian Red Sea being one of the Seven Wonders of the Underwater World, it is no wonder that the Deep South itinerary has been selected as one of Liz’s favourites.  Not only does it explore a variety of truly unique dive sites but it is also home to some very interesting and unusual reef formations.  It also appeals to those shopaholics, with a visit to the harbour in Port Ghalib to purchase souvenirs and enjoy Egyptian hospitality.  It includes 6 days of diving with up to 4 dives per day.   

“This is my favourite. I have done this itinerary twice. I found this itinerary a very beautiful itinerary, with a variety of dive sites. The marine life was wonderful. At the right time of the year you’re able to see bigger marine life and I had a very close encounter with an Oceanic whitetip shark, swam with a pod of dolphins and saw a Sea Turtle up close. There were other, smaller, marine life such as Spanish Dancers, many many specifies of fish and numerous Nudibranchs.

On top of the marine life, I was lucky enough to see some amazing coral formations, especially at St Johns, with the most beautiful pinnacles and swim throughs and table corals. Once you understand how long it takes for some corals to grow and the marine life they support, it reinforces how lucky we are to be only five hours away from the Red Sea and to dive in such a great colourful environment. The Red Sea is a real diver’s place.”

“The best in Hurghada. An excellent trip. Great crew and service. Couldn’t fault the accommodation and food was 5*. I would highly recommend a trip with these guys when everything’s back to normal.”
