Saturday Once again the Red Sea Aggressor 1 was all shined up and ready to meet her 16 new guests for the week, coming from USA, New Zealand, Canada and Netherlands.
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 first dive was dedicated to explore the south plateau with the spot of the white Tip Oceanic shark, thresher shark and Napoleon Wrasse. At 10 am is time to the attend the 2nd dive briefing of the day and dive with 3 hammerheads in the north side of Daedalus Reef. The last dive of the day was a boat to zodiac dive. Right after dinner we left Daedalus Reef and we moved to the fury St. John’s area.

Tuesday

It’s 6 :30 am and we are set to dive Paradise reef. The anemone city and his swimthrough were the highlights of the dive. We continue the diving Day at St. Johns Caves, a favourite divers dive location. We dive his spectaculars swim through with their play of light and clear waters. We scored 4 dives including a night dive in location. After dinner it is time to move to the fury shoals Area.

 Wednesday

Time to dive at the Sataya reef, also called the Dolphin House. It was a memorable day.
A pod of 30 + dolphins were located at the lagoon of the reef. We spent more than an hour swimming and photographing the spinner dolphins.
We scored 4 dives including a night Dive in shaab Claudia.
At night we sailed to the proximity of Marsa alam.

Thursday

Shaab Sharm is the dedicated dive site for the morning dives.
The highlight of the day was the spot of 2 baby white tip reef sharks just under a table coral not far from the boat.
We spent there 2 dives before moving to Shaab Marsa Alam
We scored 4 dives including a night dive in location.

At night we sail to Elphinstone reef.

Friday

“The Longimanus”, the White tip oceaning shark is in loco.
We spent 2 dives photographing and swimming along this beautiful creature.
