During this retreat, you will spend your time in an amazing cruise ship that will take you in diving and snorkeling trips around Djibouti.
This retreat will take place in Djibouti. On the Horn of Africa, Djibouti is a mostly French and Arabic-speaking country of dry shrub lands, volcanic formations, and Red Sea beaches. It is also home to one of the saltiest bodies of water in the world, the low-lying Lake Assal, in the Danakil Desert.
The rich feeding grounds that make up Djibouti’s coastal waters attract a range of different species. Alongside whale sharks, divers can encounter manta rays, beaked and pilot whales. Most species of dolphins are represented in numbers off Djibouti’s coast, and are often seen running the bow wave of your boat.
Where there are dolphins there are invariably sharks. Grey and nurse sharks are the most commonly encountered species, whilst both tiger and blue sharks have occasionally been seen.
There are over 200 recorded species of coral, some of which are endemic to the region. The lack of any rivers, combined with the volcanic base to many reefs, has prompted extremely healthy coral growth.
Extensive reefs cover much of Djibouti’s coastline. Marine species that are regularly seen off Djibouti are largely similar to those found in the northern Red Sea; however, it is the sheer abundance of life that is so impressive, with dense shoals of fish being a feature of most dives. Large schools of barracuda, jacks, and snapper are often seen feeding off the reef and add excitement to many dives.
The Ghoubet al Kharab, also known as the Devil’s Goblet or Devil’s Cauldron, is a large bay that is connected to the Gulf of Tadjourah and the open sea by a narrow channel. Geologically, it marks the start of the Great Rift Valley and the junction between the African and Arabian continental plates.
It is surrounded by mountains and cliffs over 600 meters high and the water is very deep, plunging to depths of 200 meters. Marine life at Ghoubet al Kharab includes sharks and large fish that are ushered in by the strong gulf currents. In the center of Ghoubet al Kharab, lie two majestic domes called the islands of the devil.
These islands are actually volcanic and surprisingly beautiful to see. According to ancient beliefs, which locals still hold to this day, the place is haunted. Therefore, only tourists venture to these dark jewels of nature.
This is a group of small islands located approximately 11 kilometers Northwest of Djibouti City. The island to the west is called Maskali, and the larger island is called Moucha. Here, there are currently four named dive sites, two of which are limited to expert divers only. The depths range from eight to 33 meters.
The site called Moucha’s Balise is a highly rated dive that is 15 to 30 meters in depth and a great night dive site. Visibility is excellent and advanced scuba divers may choose the site for good underwater photography. The wreck of La Bouee Coulee lies off Moucha Island and there are dive training opportunities here as well.
La Feon is also a wreck dive, and even though visibility is reduced to five to 10 meters, it just calls for a closer look at the site’s abundant marine life.
It’s always nice to do a dive that’s a bit different, rather than just corals and fishes, and this one ticks all the right boxes. This site is literally the crack in the earth between continents, caused by the movements of the earth. This site is an underwater prolongation of the Falaise de Ghoubbet, the crack that marks the separation between the African, Middle Eastern, and Indian Ocean tectonic plates.
It is an amazing feeling to sink between the rock walls and discover the many swim-throughs and caverns, or glide above and see the earth split beneath your fins. The scenery and the special atmosphere of this site will captivate you.
Lac Assal is probably the number one tourist attraction in Djibouti. It is situated around 40 kilometers from the capital and the literally meaning is honey lake. The whole trip is worth it and what you will see can only be described as magnificent.
It is the lowest point on the African continent, at 155 meters under the sea level. That alone should be enough to visit this place. Throughout history, the Salt Lake has been used by many caravans and was a well-known trading place for different empires. These days, you will still see some of these salt caravans collecting salt.
More expert and advanced dive sites in Djibouti include the wrecks of Le Boutre, Musha, Arthur Rimbaud, and Salem, as well as dive sites known as Shark Teeth and Ras Eiro.
Please book your flight to arrive at Djibouti-Ambouli International Airport (JIB). Transfer from and to the airport is included. M/Y Lucy Diving and Yoga Cruise will pick you up from the airport.
