More information about South & St. Johns (7 nights) in Red Sea Liveaboards, Red Sea & Middle East

For you diving & liveaboard holiday to Red Sea & Egypt, Red Sea Liveaboard South & St. Johns offers diving in the southern most reefs then these liveaboards are ideal.

This trip takes you to some of the best diving the Red Sea has to offer. Here the diving is less arduous so it's a trip for those who want to see the best but have a more relaxed time while doing so. Sailing to the southernmost reefs, you'll depart from Marsa Ghalib Port or Hamata (depends on the time of year) and dive the sites at Fury Shoals en-route to the vast reef system of St John's. When leaving Marsa Ghalib the route can sometimes take in a dive at Abu Dabab on the first or last day.

Sailing to the southern most reefs, these Southern Red Sea Livaboards depart from Marsa Ghalib to the vast reef system of Fury Shoals and St John's.

At Fury Shoals, dive Shaab Claude with its famous swim-throughs and huge porite corals. White Tip Reef sharks and an anemone and clownfish settlement can be seen a little off the reef to the South. Abu Galawa Soraya has a fantastic coral garden and a wreck of a private sailing boat packed with glass fish.

Dive Shab Sharm, with its wall dives and White Tip Reef sharks. Oceanic White Tips and Silky sharks can sometimes be found in the blue and turtles often visit the South side before heading further south to Wadi Gamal, with its flowing banks of hard yellow and green soft coral, resident angel and butterfly fish, and in the right season huge schools of placid jack and tuna visit the area.

St John's is a vast collection of small reefs offering some of the most remote and rewarding diving in the Red Sea. Habili Ali offers giant gorgonians and black corals whilst Grey Reef, Silvertip and schools of Hammerhead sharks might be found on the west side. Habili Gafaar is a mass of soft corals teaming with shoals of snappers, butterfly fish and barracudas. Mantas, Grey Reef and Silvertip sharks can be seen in the blue.

Gota Kebir is a massive reef, famous for its tunnels and south plateau, where jacks and barracudas can be seen and the occasional manta. The tunnels are ideal for novice cave divers.

Gota Soraya is rated as possibly one of the best wall dives in the Red Sea, with overhangs and cracks in the reef wall full of glass fish and sweepers and an abundance of corals, Grey Reef, Silvertips and Hammerhead sharks.

Note: Minimum of 40 logged dives recommended
