Itinerary: Simply the Best
Dates: 15th – 22nd September 2017
Aboard: M/Y blue Melody
Built in 2007, M/Y blue Melody is the third vessel in the blue o two fleet and underwent a complete interior re-fit in 2008. She is 38m in length and takes a maximum of 26 divers on each trip. M/Y blue Melody is everything you would expect from a 5* diving vessel with large dining area, separate sky lounge with state of the art entertainment system and double and twin cabins all benefiting from en-suite facilities, air conditioning and personal entertainment systems. A spacious dive deck also makes kitting up and getting in the water a stress free experience!
M/Y blue Melody is equipped with a nitrox membrane, booster pump and is rebreather friendly. M/Y blue Melody currently holds the DIVER 2012 award for ‘Liveaboard of the Year’ AND the Sport Diver 2013 ‘Best Liveaboard award!.
Visiting Brothers, Daedalus and Elphinstone, this is a great all-round tour for divers with slightly more experience; this safari offers challenging dives, big drop offs, beautiful coral walls and plenty of large fish. There is so much to see you are spoilt for choice, but don’t forget to keep an eye out to the blue… you never know what you might see!
**PLEASE NOTE** the itinerary below is just an example of the route taken and the order and dive sites are not guaranteed. All dive sites are subject to weather conditions and the final route taken is at the absolute discretion of the captain and dive guides.
Day 1 – Visit dive sites local to your departure port for three dives (a check dive, practice zodiac dive and night dive) before heading out to the marine parks.
Days 2-5 – We normally plan to spend a day each at Big Brother, Small Brother, Daedalus and the Elphinstone area.
Day 6 – After a week of drop-offs, enjoy two relaxed morning dives local to your arrival port allowing you to cruise into harbour in the early afternoon. Take advantage of an evening onshore to purchase souvenirs and enjoy Egypt’s famous hospitality before your journey home the next day.
A 400 metre long island offering fabulous wreck diving and wall diving. The wreck of the Numidia lies on the northern tip between 10 and 80 metres. The north-west side of the island houses the wreck of the Aida.
On every section of this reef the wall is covered with corals and life.
Boasts a very high concentration of life within a very small area. Fan coral forests, overhangs, hard and soft corals in a variety of astonishing colours and of course there are plenty of fish! With regular sightings of hammerheads, thresher sharks, grey sharks and white tip reef sharks, at the right time of year.
This huge reef rises from the sea bed in the middle of the Red Sea. Easily recognized by its zebra-striped lighthouse, this massive reef offers some of the most amazing dives in the Red Sea. The sheer walls are covered in over-grown hard coral formations and a variety of reef fish. Napoleon wrasses and turtles are often cruising by, but make sure you keep your eyes open on the blue! Daedalus is one of those places where anything can happen… oceanic white tip reef sharks, grey reef sharks, a lonesome hammerhead shark or schools of them. The excitement and the sheer size of this reef means that you can do several dives and not get bored!
A Red Sea legend. One of the most beautiful reefs, with north and south plateau’s covered in hard and soft corals. This is a truly awesome reef
