Apneaman will go to Daedalus for the first time to at the end of April! It is one of the most distant diving locations in Egypt situated almost in the middle between Egypt and Saudi Arabia. The reef has an oval shape up to 500 m wide, its walls fall to the depth of about 500 m and it is a famous location with rich underwater life and great occurrence pelagic fish. Daedalus is a renowned location mainly thanks to sharks. We can see here large schools of bronze hammerhead as well as other shark species like fox sharks, grey sharks, whitetip sharks ... Schools of tunas, barracudas, yellow jacks, surgeonfish and dolphins can be often seen on Daedalus and if we are lucky we can see devilfish as well! We fortunately received permission for a freediving trip in this gorgeous undersea park! :-)

We will come out to sea from Marsa Alam, so we definitely won’t pass up the opportunity to dive with turtles and a dugong in the locations of Marsa Nubarak and Abu Dabab. If we do not stay too long on Daedalus, we will definitely visit the Elphistone reef and a longfin shark as well ;-)  There will definitely be a possibility to train depth along the rope and to improve your performances in depth disciplines FIM, CWT and CNF and to try disciplines NLT and VWT, to which a freediver does not get so easily.

In case of interest you can also have a one-day workshop about techniques of pressure equalization and their training! It will definitely be a great opportunity for divers who have sporting ambitions as well as for divers who have trouble with pressure equalization! Our smart sled will certainly help you practice equalization.

If you would like to take some scuba diving, it is also included in the price of the trip. There are also some sports and entertaining activities as water ski, a banana boat, a paddleboat on the ship...
