Sample Itinerary...

**PLEASE NOTE** 
the itinerary below is just an example of the route taken and the order and dive sites are not guaranteed. All dives sites are subject to weather conditions and the final route taken is at the absolute discretion of the captain and dive guides.

Arrival

Once you have been picked up from the airport you will be taken to the port to board your liveaboard. If you are making your own way to the harbour we ask that you not board before 18:00. There will be a full welcome briefing on arrival and you can set your kit up. If you have prepaid any rental equipment this will be given to you on arrival. There is then your first dinner and you can settle in for the evening. The boat will not leave harbour on this first night.
After the boat permissions are sorted, the boat will depart the next morning and the check dive will be made.
A normal Daedalus and Rocky itinerary will dive at the following areas but the exact dive sites and order will vary week by week depending on what people enjoy, where the best sightings have been and reflect diver experience levels.

Daedalus
Daedalus is a huge toblerone triangle shaped reef with many dives on offer. The north tip is the best place to hang out for hammerheads and then drift down the walls. The west wall in particular is another great place to literally bump into the odd hammerhead as there are several cleaning stations. The east wall is home to the anemone city, with a narrow band of splendid anemones and clownfish sprawling down the reef. The south plateau is a brilliant boat dive with chances to see reef sharks, huge barracuda and tuna racing on the edge of the drop off. and camouflage fish on the plateau itself. The hard corals are simply spectacular too and worth investigating in their own right - loads of macro especially flabellinas.

Rocky and Zabagad

Rocky and Zabagad form the southern most marine parks but are quite different dives!
Rocky is similar to Elphinstone in size - a narrow island that juts out of the water with steep drop offs all around. You can look for shark on the tips where the current is strongest but after this head up to the shallows to enjoy the many overhangs.
Fish are usually darting about all over the place so there is plenty to check out.
There are normally 2 sites to pick from at Zabagad. The trawler in the natural harbour is a fun little wreck dive and one of the only bit of metal in the whole area! So if you are a metal head this is the dive for you. Alternatively head round to the southern plateau where the reef runs up to a sandy beach used by turtles. You can see plenty of turtles out and about here and the coral pillars are quite simply stunning, draped in soft corals.

Fury Shoal
Fury Shoal is all about the spectacular corals here and abundant marine life. Sataya is the most southerly of the reef system and there are so many ways to dive it, including a shallow dive to see some Roman amphora. Shaab Claude is perhaps one of the most famous hard coral gardens and simply divine. with a shallow cave system to explore Maksour is a great wall dive with beautiful southern plateau and pinnacles. Malahi is a fun dive with narrow swim throughs to explore. Aub Galawa Soraya and Abu Galawa Kebira are home to small wrecks, a great start to both dives around these coral playgrounds.

Shaab Sharm and Marsa Alam
Shhab Sharm is a steep wall dive with a wonderful plateau at the south extending away from the coral wall. Drift down the walls where you can encounter turtles. Large schools of snapper can congregate on the corner of the plateau. Make your way along the plateau to find baby barracuda and a myriad of camouflage fish hiding on the coral heads that pepper the plateau.
Marsa Alam itself has many dive sites to finish off your week. Popular sites include Ras Shona or Ras Trombi where the hard coral reef gives way to a seagrass bed in the middle of the bay. Turtles, bat fish and sometimes even the rare dougong can be found here.

Disembarkation
You will normally leave the boat after breakfast on your last day and be transferred to a hotel for the day. Your final transfer will take you to the airport for your return flight home. Please do speak to the travel consultant at the time of booking to confirm the exact last day arrangements as it can vary.
