Hi mates, I just had a wonderful week deep south... sea condition was great giving us the chance to do whatever sites we wanted to... water temperature between 24-26 ... we were fortunate to see almost something specific for each dive... reef sharks was a common sighting, mantas, turtles, napoleons, jacks...etc.
My personal notice about the deep south reefs is that they are mostly hard corals with marvelous colors and unique composition giving lots of caves and narrow passages to dive through... this is very different than what you get in northern red-sea up to marsa alam where soft corals are more with less hard coral structures.
Here are some photos and videos, courtesy goes to my fellow divers as I prefer to be a silent watcher and just pop up in photos :D
