Elba

It is unlikely that you will have dived in Elba before: it is a region in the far south of Egypt too far away to be included in the classic cruise programme. You will embark on a 9 or 10 day cruise!

Then the programme includes a day on Saint John before descending for 2 or 3 days to the pristine reefs of Elba, on the border with Sudan. After discovering the wreck of the Levanzo and the magnificent reefs that are no match for those of Sudan, you will sail north again to explore the never before dived sites between Elba and Abu Fendira.

over 10 or 15 days, the Deep South cruise offers the same dives as the 1 week itinerary but adds a number of small deserted islands and unknown reefs which are located in the southernmost part of Sudan, on the border with Eritrea. This is an opportunity to discover an unspoilt marine world: Abu Aisa, Dahrat Qab, Darraka, Ed Domesh, Qab Miyum, Ed Dak and finally the extraordinary Dahrat Abid with its spectacular seabed where any encounter is possible.


Djibouti

Djibouti is an extraordinary diving destination where you don't need to look for the clarity of the water in Sudan... Its rich and busy waters, where visibility rarely exceeds 15m, are the ideal place to meet pelagics, starting with whale sharks. From December to March, when the giants gather, Diving Attitude makes your dream come true and takes you on a cruise for dives that are both sporty and full of emotion in these waters at the junction of the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean!

A yellow fever vaccination certificate is required if traveling from a country with a risk of YF virus transmission and ≥9 months of age, including transit >12 hours in an airport located in a country with a risk of YF virus transmission. This includes Eritrea, Rwanda, Somalia, Tanzania, and Zambia.1 In the absence of a vaccination certificate, the person will be detained in quarantine for up to 6 days after departure from an area at risk of YF virus transmission. An overview of the countries to which this applies can be downloaded here: Yellow Fever Risk Countries.

Money Matters
The local currency is the Egyptian Pound (EGP), and ATMs are common, especially in the main tourist areas. Major hotels will usually accept payment by credit card. However, smaller hotels may expect cash and hard currency payments (USD/EUR).

Drones
To bring a drone to Egypt and fly it, you need to receive permission from the country’s Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). If you do not have documentation of authorization, your drone will be confiscated at customs. However, getting permission to fly a drone from the CAA is difficult. Should you somehow manage to get your drone in, the onboarding screening will detect your drone and one of two things will happen: 1. your drone will be confiscated at the point of arrival and stored at the airport. 2. the drone will be detected and confiscated when you are leaving the country and you’ll be sanctioned for bringing an illegal commodity to Egypt. - So don't risk it, and leave your drone at home if you’re planning to travel to Egypt.
