8-15th OCTOBER 2021
This itinerary combines some of the greatest reefs for spotting large pelagics such as a variety of shark species, and one of the most unspoiled reefs in the Red Sea, which is where it gets its itinerary name ‘Best of the Red Sea’.sharks are often sighted, but Daedalus is most famous for its scalloped hammerhead sharks which can often be seen in large schools out in the blue during the summer months. The sheer size of this reef means that you can do several dives here and never get bored!

You’ll discover deep drop offs and the chance to see schooling hammerheads, dolphins, oceanic white tips, thresher sharks, grey reef sharks, silkies. Get away from the crowds at these remote off shore reefs and soak up the Autumn sun on this amazing trip. This is a dive trip for thrill seekers!
We will be guided and looked after by our good friend Elke aka “the Shark Lady”. Elke heads up the ‘Red Sea Shark Trust’ and uses these trips to educate people on the beauty of sharks and in particular ‘oceanic whitetips’, and also to collect data for her studies. With several presentations throughout the week by Elke, you’ll be a shark expert by the end of the trip.
This liveaboard holiday explorers the reefs further South which offer a very good chance of encounters with sharks and Dolphins, on one recent trip we managed to swim amongst a pod of 100 or so for around an hour – simply breathtaking!
For this trip we will be aboard the fabulous Blue Melody, winner of the prestigious Diver award for ‘liveaboard of the year’ and SportDiver ‘Best Liveaboard’.
This trip is not for the feint-hearted, if you’ve never dived with sharks before it can be quite daunting the first time you enter the water. As soon as you see your first shark the adrenaline kicks in but very quickly you soon realise that they are not the blood thirsty creatures portrayed by the media and fictional books. In fact once your heart stops thumping like a racehorse, you soon see that they are fascinating creatures, often very shy and is an experience that you will never forget.
Our motor yacht for the weeks is Blue Melody, which is everything you would expect from a 5* diving motor yacht. It benefits from a large dining area, separate sky lounge with state of the art entertainment system, and double and twin cabins all benefiting from en-suite facilities, air conditioning and personal entertainment systems. A spacious dive deck also makes kitting up and getting in the water a stress free experience!
