Shark Sighting Expert Dives In Sharm El Sheikh

Andreas Efthymiou has recently completed his open water and advanced with Elite Diving, in Sharm El Sheikh. His main ambition is to dive with Great White Sharks outside a cage!!!

Andreas Efthymiou originates from Liverpool but with a rich tapestry of foreign ancestry.
Like many budding divers he has a great passion for sharks.
His passion was so great that before he learnt to dive with Elite Diving, he volunteered for the Great White Shark project in South Africa.

It wasn’t long before the project managers offered Andreas a full time position. His duties were to take scientific and environmental data such as air and sea temperature, GPS co-ordinates of Shark sightings along with photographing of the Great White Shark sightings. He also ran the same volunteer programme that he started on, providing detailed lectures to volunteers from around the world.

The sightings were fairly regular as he was stationed in one of the most popular areas for Great White’s and an area where we at Elite visit on a regular basis. Dyer Island, Shark Alley in South Africa.

Above are some photos that Andreas took in South Africa and also some of him diving with Elite Diving in Sharm El Sheikh where he had his first ever encounter with a shark while in the water. This was a white tip reef shark. Not on in the same league as the Great White but a shark never the less. You can see Andreas’s pleasure in spotting the shark in the photo below.
