HIGHLIGHTS

- Brother Islands: The Big Brother and the Little Brother are 140km far away from the cost. The walls of Little Bother are covered with anemones, sponges and all kinds and colors of soft corals. The possibility of seeing sharks is not unusual. Sometimes you can see thresher sharks, silvertip and whitetip reef sharks grey sharks and hammerhead sharks. On the Big Brother, in the middle of the island, is a lighthouse. There are also 2 wrecks there: "Numibia" and "Aida". “Numibia” sunk 100 years ago, she lies between 10 and 80m depth covered with hard and soft corals. The "Aida" sunk 1957, she lies at the depth between 30 and 60m. At the Brothers you may face strong currents so it makes sense to be an experienced diver to dive there

 

- Daedalus Reef: 180km south of the Brother Islands is this amazing reef. It is surrounded by a sheer wall and the south plateau goes from 30m to 40m. Sometimes when the conditions are good it makes sense to drift from the north along the drop off to the south. You will love it!!

 

- Elphinstone: One of the most beautiful reefs in the south Red Sea with a north and a south plateau and an amazing drop off with black and soft corals and gorgonias and a great possibility to see big sharks. When the weather conditions are good it makes sense to drift from north to south. Absolutely beautiful!!

NORTH/WRECK TOUR

Diving at the most famous wrecks in the Red Sea:

- Thistlegorm: The British ship was on its way to Egypt when it got bombed by the Germans. Now it´s lying on the sea bottom at 30m depth. There is still a lot of the cargo on this wreck: trucks, motorcycles, railway carriage, tanks and one railway engine.

- Giannis D.: A Greek cargo ship, sunk in 1983. A beautiful wreck and also easy to dive inside because there are many entries and exit points. Maximum depth 27m.

- Carnatic: Sunk in 1969. A steamship which strucked the reef and sunk the next day. The deck has fallen away. This wreck is full with corals, very photogenic. Maximum depth 24m.

- Dunraven: Sail-powered vessel, carrying timber and spices sunk in 1876 on its way from Bombay. It´s broken in 2 pieces and lies upside down at a depth of 28m. The bow is in 18m.

- Marine Park Ras Mohammed: Amazing reefs, for example Jolanda and Shark reef. Both are great drops off with a good possibility to see sharks.
