Featuring some of the best dive sites in the southern Red Sea, Daedalus Reef is home to strong currents, healthy reefs and oceanic whitetip sharks, making a fantastic liveaboard diving destination.
Often combined with the Brothers Islands and Elphinstone on liveaboard itineraries, Daedalus offers a large reef surrounded by sheer walls. Strong currents often ravage the area creating great drift dives and bringing in pelagic species. You might spot oceanic whitetips, hammerheads and, if you are lucky, thresher sharks. Turtles, dogtooth tuna and whale sharks can also make an appearance during the right season. The wreck of the Zealot at advanced depths rounds out an impressive array of dive sites. Daedalus Reef can only be reached by liveaboard. Typically, dive safari itineraries last 7 days, and the best time to dive in the Red Sea is from September to November and April to June.
