August Cruise Elphinstone
Published on 3 February 2022
RED SEA CRUISE FROM AUGUST 14 TO 21 + OPTIONAL EXTENSION TO CAIRO
Elphinstone Reef is one of the most coveted diving spots in the Red Sea, with its two plateaus, north and south, full of life and color. The reefs are an explosion of life and color thanks to the presence of countless species of reef fish, corals, gigantic acropora and large fan-shaped gorgonians. Diving on the northern tip, we will most likely be able to admire the elegant and majestic hammerhead shark that gives divers a fascinating emotion. Going up the next steps, we will most likely meet gray reef sharks and / or white tip sharks. The south end is the richest point of life, due to the generally more intense currents here, and ends, at a depth of 55 meters, with a splendid coral arch covered with gorgonians and alchionaries. Going up to an altitude between 5 and 10 meters, the meetings are not over; a big Napoleon and a beautiful turtle will gladly cheer us the last minutes of these splendid dives. It is undoubtedly the most famous and sought-after diving location at this point on the Egyptian coast.
