Liveaboard Diving in Fury Shoal
What to Expect on a Fury Shoals Liveaboard
In the deep south of the Egyptian Red Sea lies Fury Shoals, a chain of 20 or so reefs around 30km long. Known as some of the best diving in the Red Sea with some of the most pristine reefs, the Fury Shoals offer something for all levels of diver. Lagoons, drop-offs, wrecks, and stunning reefs will keep even the most seasoned divers happy.
Fury Shoals Underwater
Divers will enjoy unspoiled diving and beautiful reefs. With huge hard coral formations, massive table corals, and colorful soft corals, marine life is plentiful. Anemones, Napoleon Wrasse, Octopus, White Tip Reef Sharks, Barracudas, Giant Trevallies, Tuna, and Dolphins are common.
Dive Sites of Fury Shoals
On the southern tip of the Fury Shoals is Sha'ab Caudia or Sha'ab Claude, a small reef alive with corals and life and amazing swim-throughs. With a maximum depth of around 25m, conditions are usually quite good here and make for easy diving.
Abu Galawa Soraya is a doughnut-shaped reef with an amazing coral garden located in the middle. This is a great place to go critter hunting for Nudibranchs, Shrimp, Scorpionfish, and Octopus. Once you venture outside the coral garden, watch for larger marine life like turtles and white-tip reef sharks.
Sha'ab Sataya is located at the very south of the Fury Shoals reef system and is famous for the large pod of spinner dolphins that hangs out in the natural lagoon. Aside from the lagoon are some great dives with amazing drop-offs and the chance to spot
North-east of Fury Shoals is Shaab Maksour, a reef around 1 and half km long, surrounded by steep walls, it is similar to Elphinstone Reef and sightings of turtles, rays and sharks are known on the the north and south plateaus.
A small Chinese tug boat is located at Abu Galawa Kebir, which makes a great dive as it is a combination of reef and wreck. Start on the reef's outer edge and watch for turtles, rays, and octopus before ending up around the coral-encrusted wreck to hunt for macro life. There are also some great swim-throughs at this dive site.
To get to the Fury Shoals dive liveaboards will depart from either Marsa Ghalib or Hamata. Hamata, Egypt's most southerly Red Sea Resort, is located around 180km south of Marsa Alam, and Port Ghalib’s airport is the closest one to Hamata. The land transfer takes around 2.5 hours, or you can get there overland from Hurghada, which takes around 5 hours.
