The vessel...

Built in 2007, M/Y blue Melody is the third vessel in the blue o two fleet and underwent a complete interior re-fit in 2008. She is 38m in length and takes a maximum of 26 divers on each trip. M/Y blue Melody is everything you would expect from a 5* diving vessel with large dining area, separate sky lounge with state of the art entertainment system and double and twin cabins all benefiting from ensuite facilities, air conditioning and personal entertainment systems. A spacious dive deck also makes kitting up and getting in the water a stress free experience! M/Y blue Melody is equipped with a nitrox membrane, booster pump and is rebreather friendly.

 

The itinerary...

Like Northern Wrecks and Reefs, this safari is suitable for open water divers but is slightly more challenging, offering big drop-offs overgrown with huge gorgonians and colourful soft corals. Divers will have the opportunity to explore a variety of truly unique dive sites home to some very interesting and unusual reef formations. This itinerary is perfect for divers wanting to experience a slightly more 'untouched' Red Sea and is not to be missed.

Hammerheads, Grey sharks, Silvertip Sharks and White tip Reef Sharks can often be spotted out in the blue.

St. John's Reef North

Located one hour north of the main St.John's area. Have fun finding your way through tunnels and around pinnacles.

Elphinstone Reef

A Red Sea legend. One of the most beautiful reefs, with north and south plateau's covered in hard and soft corals. This is a truly awesome reef.

Fury Shoal

An immense chain of reefs creating a host of outstanding dive sites including Abu Galawa in the north to Sataya in the south. Have fun exploring caves, tunnels, coral gardens, plateaus and drop offs! Abu Galawa is located within Fury Shoal - have fun exploring the wreck of 'Tug Boat'. The reef also has good coral dives on the west side.
