M/Y Heaven Saphir Diving
They have 3 types of scuba diving trips; Sunken History, Walls & Sharks, and Islands in the Stream. In the North from Port Hurghada, they visit some 30 ship wrecks including the famous WWII Thistlegorm. They have two main itineraries you can choose from for this trip depending on which ships and reefs you would like to visit. With Walls & Sharks, you'll get a chance to dive the eastern routes and Brother Islands from the M/Y Heaven Saphir from Port Ghalib. Besides spectacular soft coral colored walls, you'll see hammerheads, silver tips, oceanic white tips, and thresher sharks. On the Islands of the Stream trip from Port Ghalib, you may visit the famous Elphinstone walls, coral caves, Dolphin Reef, and Marsa Alam where the Dugongs (cousins of Manatees) hang out. They have three different itineraries for these extreme southern trips too.
Many of the trips use two inflatable tenders to take you to the best spots. So, while onboard the M/Y Heaven Saphir, plan on doing four dives a day including night dives on non-transit days. Two experienced guides are there to help make every dive memorable.
