Red Sea Reef Check Safari with Sinai Divers
MAY 8-15 2008

Join Sinai Divers and Reef Check aboard the Ghazala I on this 7-night liveaboard safari in the Red Sea.

Experience the Red Sea in the best way possible. A one week liveaboard safari with Ghazala I. Enjoy the colorful soft corals, fascinating variety of fishes and with some luck, even Sharks and Manta Rays may be encountered. A special extra on this safari is that you will be accompanied by marine biologists. Under their supervision and using the Reef Check protocol, participants will learn how to estimate reef damage and growth, fish population and the connection to the reef, reef inhabitants and the influence of man. The information gained is important to estimate the coral reef situation around the world. Scientists, the skipper and the participants coordinate when and where to schedule the dives. During the first two days you will be iintroduced to the methods of Reef Check. After that the actual monitoring of the reefs will be done. At the end of each day the Reef Check biologist will comment on the results of the dives and give a closer look into the complexity of the coral reefs. Even with one or two Reef Check dives each day there is still plenty of time for fun-dives and relaxation. The famous dive-sites in Ras Mohammed and Tiran are part of the itinerary.

Sinai Divers will donate 10% of the earnings to Reef Check.
