St Johns is a large reef system right at the end of the Egyptian Red Sea and all time favourite with scuba divers of all abilities.

Lying just above the Sudanese border, a trip St Johns is a trip to the very edges of the Egyptian Red Sea- and back again.

Not content to only offer up the awesome diving of the deep south, this itinerary packs in more, stopping at the stunning reef systems of Fury Shoal and Wadi el Gimal.

This itinerary truly is the best way to see the Southern Red Sea in its all its glory, on a luxury liveaboard holiday far from the crowds.

The entire region is filled with every kind of marine life, from the smallest nudibranch's to the largest. Bumphead parrot fish, baby white tips, barracuda and napoleons comb the deep south, whereas snapper, hawk fish, batfish and morays roam the more northern stop offs.

Fury Shoal is famous for her hard corals - Shaab Claudia, Malahi or Abu Galawa Soraya are as bright as they are impressive.

The St Johns itinerary is perfect for every diver, no matter what experience level. The diving is straight forward so you can concentrate more on the mind blowing marine life in this veritable underwater aquarium.

Diving takes place both from the boat and RIB. With walls, pinnacles, caves, night diving over the whole week, the St Johns itinerary is packed with the dives that everyone can enjoy. Currents tend to mild and minimal
