Sample itinerary information
Dive sites vary, with something for everyone on most itineraries. Currents are the norm in many spots so on several itineraries it is recommended that divers have experience beyond beginner level to ensure maximum enjoyment. Always check with us for the most suitable itinerary for your experience and certification.
On a typical day there are up to 4 day dives, however the 4th day dive may be substituted for a night dive when the boat is anchored by a reef. A 7-night itinerary provides for between 18-20 dives; during a 10-night itinerary up to 30 dives will be possible.

The Brothers: known for thresher, hammerhead, oceanic white tips and grey reef shark sightings. two impressive wrecks (Numidia & Aida), a pristine fan coral forest, and a massive collection of hard and soft corals. The highlight is the fish life great variety.
Daedalus: some of the most amazing dives in the Red Sea ... with sheer walls covered in over-grown hard coral formations and a variety of reef fish, plusoceanic white tip, grey reef and thresher sharks are often sighted. Most famous for its scalloped hammerhead sharks.
Elphingstone: north and south plateaus covered in hard and soft corals ...unpredictable and exciting this truly is an awesome reef where hammerhead sharks are regularly spotted in the summer and oceanic white tip sharks often congregate in large numbers during late autumn.
St John's: drop-offs, tunnels, and stunning hard coral formations. The sun filters through the tunnels, a delight for photographers. The great variety in colors of the soft coral and marine life guarantees wonderful dive experiences. With any luck, dolphins or pelagic fish will join you on your dive
Ras Mohamed: Shark & Yolanda Reefs are joined by a vertical wall dropping into the abyss. At Shark Reef,you to drift along the rich with colorful wall. At Yolanda Reef you will come upon the scattered remains of the wreck ‘Yolanda’ complete with its cargo of toilets and baths. The whole of this area is big fish territory so keep an eye on the blue!
SS Thistlegorm: this English cargo ship was bombed by the Germans in October 1941 while transporting supplies destined for the British in Alexandria (armored vehicles, motorcycles, jeeps, trucks, rolling stock, airplane parts, stacks of rifles, radio equipment, munitions, and a plentiful supply of wellington boots). Now she is an artificial reef and home to an enormous variety of marine life.
We recommend that you book your international flight to and from Hurghada International airport (HRG) or Marsa Alam International airport (RMF), depending on your departure port. Both airports are served by many airlines and charter companies from all over the world. A representative of the Blue Adventurer will meet guests at the airport and escort them to the yacht.
Please note that these times may vary depending on the itinerary so please check your cruise confirmation carefully. Depending on your onward plans, you can either transfer directly to the airport or check into a hotel to enjoy the Egyptian hospitality a little longer.
