Daedalus Reef is a 400m long and 100m wide  standalone reef in the Egyptian Red Sea situated about 90 kilometers from Marsa Alam. There is a small artificial island in the center of the reef, which hosts a lighthouse constructed in 1863 and rebuilt in 1931. Daedalus reef is a well-known place for diving because of good chances to see pelagic fish, such as hammerhead sharks, and an abundance of corals. In the high season one can find many dive safari boats staying overnight, anchored to the reef.


Elphinstone Reef is one of the most famous dive sites in the World and offers some of the best scuba diving in the Red Sea!

The Elphinstone reef is located 12km offshore and about 30km from Marsa Alam. This dive site is famous for its wonderful drift dives along deep steep walls. The coral is really great and unspoiled.The Elphinstone Reef is also famous for being one of the few places on Earth where you can dive with the Oceanic Whitetip Shark as well as Harmmerhead Sharks.


Around 150km south of Marsa Alam, Fury Shoals is 30km long chain of dive sites offering coral pinnacles, lagoons, dropoff, drift dives, and a great chance for Dolphins, such as Sataya – dolphin reef a very large horseshoe reef. The distance from the east to the west side is more than 3km. The depth in the inner part ranges from 3m to 15m. It is very common to spot a pod of spinner dolphins. East site is mixed drop off, pinnacles, stony plateau, and coral garden.

Sataya South Wall dive is at depths over 100m.


North-east of Fury Shoals is Shaab Maksour, a reef around 1,5 km long, surrounded by steep walls, it is similar to Elphinstone Reef and sightings of turtles, rays and sharks are known on the the north and south plateaus.


Shaab Sharm is located 40km south of Marsa Alam. Shaab Sharm is a kidney stone-shaped reef with sloping walls, at the east tip is a plateau covered by soft coral, arrange of hard coral. If you are lucky you can spot Manta and Oceanic sharks. Under the plateau is a large overhead cave at a depth of 50 m to 50 inside.

Habili Ali is an oval shaped reef, its walls and ridges are full of beautiful coral and full of Marin life , Drift diving is the best way to admire the inlaid coral and reef fish living in the steep walls.
Gotta Soghair: small reef with the best drop off at the area, all the sides are slope off and droop off to deep, covered with soft coral, gorgonian and black coral growing on the walls. The south edge of the reef is full of hard coral and conical shaped coral, so it’s hard to step.
Dangerous Reef is the most south dive site at St. John area, it takes a diamond shape. The south tip of the diamond there is a sandy sloping bottom with hard coral down to 30 m. The main reef has some fissures making small tunnels, out of the tunnels east or west a good coral garden.
Dangerous reef is the best choice after the deep dives and also offer us shelter for the night and excellent night dive.
