Our guides select the best possible action sites to visit based on their immense local knowledge and on insider-data on recent activity including a variety of Red Sea sharks, dolphins and anything else that chooses to join the party.
Some of the sites we might visit are St John’s, Rocky, Daedalus and Elphinstone. However, please remember that the focus of this trip is not about where we go but about what we want to see…sharks! To that end, if we’ve had better shark sightings at, say, The Brother’s Islands, then we’ll head off there to catch the action! As always reefs we can visit may be restricted by weather conditions.
As you may be visiting some of the remote offshore Red Sea reef systems many of these may have deep drop offs and be exposed to strong currents so be prepared to spend some time waiting ‘in the blue’ or in the shallows looking for those unmistakable shapes and shadows.
There are no guarantees in life but one thing is for sure, this itinerary will give you the best chance of close encounters of the ‘sharky’ kind.
