Red Sea Liveaboard
Oonas Diver's southern charters with embarkation from Wadi Lahami run from March-December and access the most southerly reefs and islands of the Egyptian Red Sea, providing adventurous diving in the solitude of this very remote territory. Between the Tiran Straits and Port Sudan are the most diverse concentrations of marine life and greatest profusion of soft corals in the entire Red Sea. Here more than one thousand species of fish, some five hundred species of coral and thousands of invertebrate reef dwellers weave a rich tapestry
of colour in waters that offer outstanding visibility. more...
Diver's Tales aims to bring you the extraordinary in dive spots around the world. Experience the special, the mystical off-the-beaten-path places not
yet known to everyone. Enjoy!
Our Diver's Tale this month...Wadi Lahami, Egypt
Accommodation at Camp Wadi Lahami. Diving almost like it used to be in the old days before mass dive tourism hit
the Red Sea.
From the camp you can explore the many offshore islands, 'habillies' and 'ergs' of the Shoal. These include known reefs - Erg Abu Diab, Sha'b
Mansour, Galawa, Sataya (Dolphin Reef) and Claudia Reef - as well as many unnamed and newly discovered reefs which have yet to be put on
the charts. These offshore islands and chain-reefs have very rich marine life, and pelagics such as jacks, tuna, sharks and rays are cruising
visitors. The hard corals that make up the reef topography of Fury Shoal are believed to be the best in the world. This remote area still offers
a great sense of exploration and discovery.
The diving from this is a first in the Red Sea as the dives are conducted from fast RIBs (as opposed to the more traditional hard boats) which
have been specially designed to access Fury Shoal 6 miles offshore as quickly and comfortably as possible. The RIBs carry 8-10 divers and
there are currently 3 RIBs at the Camp. Divers have the freedom to chose
when they dive.
Dive Camp Wadi Lahami is located just above Ras Banas called Wadi Lahami.
This remote bay is 100km south of Marsa Nakari and is superbly located directly opposite the multitude of offshore reefs collectively known
as Fury Shoal. From there Oonas Divers is able to offer an absolutely unique dive concept: unlimited boat dives from a shore based operation
in a unique desert environment.
This is a great opportunity to dive 'deep south' sites whilst having the freedom and flexibility of being land based. This safari is for
adventurous divers seeking the opportunity to discover pristine reefs, living in a 'close to nature' expedition environment.
A stay at camp Wadi Lahmi can be booked through Oonas
Divers. The company is run by a team of enthusiastic divers who
have extensive knowledge of the locations they offer. They have continuously extended the frontiers in the Egyptian Red Sea, providing
small groups of adventurous divers with top quality diving, in the company of very experienced and caring crews.
Oonas Divers now offers a Camp Wadi Lahmi special for £725 that
includes direct flights from Gatwick, transfers, 7 nights on full board including soft drinks, 6 days unlimited RIB and zodiac diving, weights
The Red Sea can be dived year round....
Fly to London first and then take a charter return flight each Friday Gatwick/Hurghada/Gatwick.
You will be met at Hurghada airport for the 6 hour transfer to the camp.
