Scuba diving information in St John's, Red Sea, Egypt

The southern Red Sea is renowned for its incredible reefs that are home to both hard and soft corals in pristine condition and pelagics in great numbers. There are many species of shark, including hammerheads which can be found in schools. Other impressive marine encounters may be made with pods of dolphins, schools of bumphead parrotfish and the occasional turtle. The area is home to a selection of wrecks, but undoubtedly the reefs - and their associated life - are the thing that attracts divers. Perhaps the most famous of the dive sites in the region is Elphinstone Reef, a deep coral wall and drift dive that is best seen early in the morning to increase the chance of sighting the schools of hammerheads frequently found here by divers. St John's is a vast collection of small reefs offering some of the most remote and rewarding diving in the Red Sea. Habili Ali offers giant gorgonians and black corals whilst Grey Reef, Silvertip and schools of Hammerhead sharks might be found on the west side. Habili Gafaar is a mass of soft corals teaming with shoals of snappers, butterfly fish and barracudas. Mantas, Grey Reef and Silvertip sharks can be seen in the blue of the sea.
