Daedalus reef is almost 100 km southwest of Marsa Alam. It is around an island just 450 m by 100 m, with a lighthouse at the end.

This site offers the chance to see four types of sharks (almost guaranteed) : hresher, Scalloped Hammerhead, Grey Reef and Oceanic Whitetip.

Hammerhead sharks have also often been seen here - although shy many great sighting here on approximately half of the dives (good odds)

This site is often visited by  live-a-board as it is a long way from the coast. Great experinece and often in experienced divers top 5 dive sites in the world.
