2021 → RED SEA SHARK ADVENTURE
[10 - 19 November 2021]

Join Magnus Lundgren on a dedicated Red Sea Shark Adventure. This is a special trip with the goal to meet fascinating sharks in the Red Sea's clear blue water. We look for oceanic whitetips, schools of scalloped hammerheads, thresher sharks, grey reefies and other sharks and other subjects.

The open schedule means we will visit the locations that had most shark action up until we arrive. It could be St John's, Daedalus, Elphinstone, but we could also end up around the Brother's Islands. On this trip the goal is not where, but rather the shark encounters we might find.

Together with Magnus and the experienced staff onboard Emperor Asmaa you will give yourself a great opportunity for an epic Red Sea trip. Magnus says "It is not only where and when we dive, but also how, that increase our chances for great encounters".
