The authentic Shark Week
Our Red Sea Shark weeks are ran by the legendary Dr. Elke Bojanowski, owner of the charity ‘Red Sea Shark Trust’. As well as guiding you to the sharks, she will conduct several talks in between dives and allow you to contribute to her studies and shark protection.
Hosted by our friend, biologist Dr Elke Bojanowski (AKA the Shark Lady) who has been in the Egyptian Red Sea since 2004 and also heads up the fantastic charity www.redseasharks.org. As well as taking you to see sharks up close and personal she will do regular talks throughout the week on the different shark species in the Red Sea, how to dive with sharks safely, why sharks are so important to the health of our oceans, the plight of sharks and how you can help her research.
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 luxurious yacht Scuba Scene. M/Y Scuba Scene is a steel-hulled liveaboard, 48 m long and 9 m wide., fitted to rigorous safety standards. She is spacious, comfortable and beautifully laid out, with a maximum capacity for 26 diving guests. Two large speedboats fitted with tank racks and dive ladders are supporting the diving activities.
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.
THE BOAT: SCUBA SCENE
