Your guide will give you a detailed briefing about your first dive.

Arrived the day before on site, you will do your first-two wreck dives in the morning. After lunch you will sail north for two hours before reaching the site where you will do the third dive of the day. Upon request, a night dive may be added. For a quiet and peaceful night, you will spend the night away from the waves, moored behind a big reef. This programme may be subject to change according to weather conditions.
Day 4 Thuesday
According to the programme established by your guide and the captain (relying on weather forecast and number of boats on the various dive sites) you will dive on the eastern side of the reef surrounding Gubal Island on the magnificent wreck of the Rosalie Moller. After breakfast you will sail for two hours to cross the Gubal strait and reach the eastern shores of the Sinai. Two other dives will be proposed in this area. Upon request (and according to the site and weather), a night dive may be added.
Day 5 Wednesday
On that day you will do a minimum of two dives on the world-renowned wreck of the SS Thistlegorm, discovered by Cousteau in the 50ies.

Day 6 Thursday
At the break of dawn, the boat will sail to the Ras Muhammad Marine Park where you will dive twice on the dizzying drop-offs among thousands of colourful fishes.

Upon request (and according to the site and weather), a night dive may be added. This programme may be subject to change according to weather conditions.
