Daedalus Reef This huge tear-drop shaped reef rises from the sea bed in the middle of the Red Sea, 80 km offshore and more than 300 km south of Hurghada. Easily recognized by its zebra-striped lighthouse, this reef offers some of the most amazing dives in the Red Sea.
The sheer walls are covered in over-grown hard coral formations and a variety of reef fish. Napoleon wrasses and turtles are often cruising by, but make sure you keep your eyes open on the blue!
Daedalus is one of those places where anything can happen… oceanic white tip, grey reef and thresher sharks are often sighted. But Daedalus is most famous for its scalloped hammerhead sharks which can often be seen in large schools out in the blue during the summer months. The sheer size of this reef means that you can do several dives here and never get bored!
