Daedalus Reef is 80km east of Marsa Alam, and in a marine park. Therefore, the reef is in great condition because inexperienced and day trip divers are unable to visit. It can only be dived by liveaboard cruise and divers need to be at least Advanced Open Water and able to dive in a current. The reef sits alone surrounded by deep water. There is plenty to see in the shallows around the reef, but your dive will most likely be dictated by the currents and either drifting along or hiding in wait for something large & special. In the centre of the reef are an artificial island and a lighthouse that you can visit between dives. Deep down there is a wreck, but this is only really accessible by technical divers. The open-sea location and depth mean that the nutrient-rich currents attract lots of resident marine life, both large and small. This in turn attracts predatory pelagics, in particular several species of sharks. Daedalus Reef offers probably the best opportunity in to dive with Hammerhead Sharks in The Red Sea.
