Ohterwise St John's and Elphinstone would be a good intinerary to use the w/a capability of the Tokina but the day or so you'd have at the Fury Shoal may be better spent with some macro glass unless you dive the Tien Tsien and yacht at Abu Galawa. On this itinerary you'll end up at Umm Rus and Abu Dabab after Elphinstone so your Tokina will be useful when you are hunting the dingdongs (dugongs) and turtles on the sea grass.

... except perhaps one of the wreck focused ones...
A pity that you have the ideal wreckies lens, then...
#*!?! I'm no longer a Tokinaskeptic!
If you can't find any sharks, then Abu Galawa at Fury shoal and some caves would be good, shoals of fish and maybe a shark on an offshore reef like the Brothers or Elphinstone, or some sea fans: pretty much anything south of Marsa Alam should suit.
