Daedalus Reef, also called Abu El Kizan, is the most off-shore of all the reefs in the Egyptian Red Sea. With walls around the whole of its large perimeter, it is famous for its huge hard coral formations, its schooling hammerheads and sightings of thresher sharks and whale sharks. Big Napoleon fish can also be observed looking curiously at the divers while you cruise along the shear walls covered in soft corals. Do not forget to pay a visit to its anemone garden with clouds of clown fish protecting their nests. It is unique in its size and beauty and always a pleasure for the Red Sea divers.

Rocky and Zabargad Islands lie close together to the South-East of Ras Banas. Rocky’s shear walls are covered in a stunning forests of soft and fan corals. Juvenile white-tip sharks can be observed sleeping under huge, very scenic overhangs. Mantas, hammerhead and grey reef sharks often visit the island and Napoleon fish dance in your bubbles.

Zabargad Island, amazing in its spectacular beauty, was used as a precious stone mine in ancient times. Along its Southern side, a shallow shelf displays a large number of high pinnacles completely covered in soft corals and clouds of antheas offering amazing diving. The drop-off offers hammerhead, grey reef shark and manta sightings. On its North-Eastern side a small shallow wreck can be dived upon.

Enjoy the majesty of the off-shore reefs and the splendor of the coastal ones. The shear walls of Elphinstone Reef plunge steeply into the blue richly decorated with soft and fan corals. The North plateau is home to schooling hammerhead and grey reef sharks with frequent sightings of the inquisitive oceanic white-tip sharks.
