Saturday  Once again the Red Sea Aggressor 1 was all shined up and ready to meet her 20 new guests for the week. With introductions and briefings done, the guests settled in, and had a delicious dinner on board prepared by chef Sherif.

Sunday We started out our week of diving with a check-out dive at Marsa Shouna. Everyone was eager to get into the water, and it was the perfect dive to start the week with a variation of marine life to be seen, including sting rays, octopuses, scorpion fishes, hawksbill turtle and plenty more. After the second dive we moved along the coastline to our next dive site, Abu Dahab 3 for the third dive of the day , a night dive .
We found the Spanish Dancer , sleeping parrotfishes, shrimps, hermit crabs and basket stars. Once all the divers were up from the dive, it was time to serve dinner and start making our way to Daedalus reef.

Monday We arrived in Daedalus reef early Monday morning and moored to the south plateau. Our guests were very happy as on the first dive at the east they saw a large range of marine life and very healthy corals. Next up was off the North Plateau , the guests were greeted by a curios Napoleon Wrasse . We jumped off the zodiacs one more time, at Anemone city, before moving to the fury Shoals area.

 Wednesday The sun was shining in Shaab Maksur .We visit the South Plateau and his impressive pinnacle of corals just under the boat . We were delighted also to photograph the White Tip Oceanic shark . The 2nd and 3rd dive of the day were dedicated to the “ Play of Light “ .
