Duration incl. arrival / departure days: 8 days (6 days on excursion)
Route: Hamata – Fury Shoals – St. John’s – Zabargad/Rocky – Fury Shoals – Hamata
Difficulty: Suitable for advanced divers to professionals
Minimum number of logged dives: 30

 The excursion starts in the harbor of Hamata and takes you to the well known reefs of St. John as well as to the diving spots of Zabargad and the Rocky Islands. On account of how far out they are there are rarely dives conducted at these reefs which is why the offer a largely untouched underwater world, breathtaking steep walls and especially large fish.

The big advantage of this tour is in the fact that we start from Hamata. This makes the journey relatively short compared to the tours which start from Port Ghalib. Therefore, we can spend more time at St. John’s, Zabargad and the Rocky Islands to dive on reefs that can not be approached by other boats for reasons of time.
