BROTHERS SALEM

The Brother Islands, the tops of two undersea mountains rising from the depth, are located about 50 nautical miles off-shore, near the town of Quseir in the Red Sea. Part of the Marine Park, they offer breathtaking underwater scenery, wall diving along their entire perimeter and the possibility to spot a wide variety of pelagics.

 

Their walls are covered in soft corals of all colors, black corals and forests of fan corals, creating a true feast for the eyes. Big tuna, shoals of jack fish and snappers cruise in the blue accompanied by hammerheads, grey reef, silver-tip, silky and oceanic white-tip sharks and mantas.

 

The thresher shark, an oceanic species, as well as the magnificent Whale Shark, occasionally spotted close to the reef, circle the walls of the Brothers on a regular basis. While diving in this area of teh Red Sea the huge and spectacular moon fish has also been spotted several times near the reefs.

 

The Aida II, an Egyptian supply vessel and the Numidia, a cargo ship sunk in 1901, lie on the walls of the Big Brother. They are covered in soft and hard corals and they are a real treat.

 

On your way back along the coast you will visit the infamous Salem Express wreck, which, up until recently was one of the worst maritime tragedies in the history of the Red Sea, and has been reported to have claimed more than a thousand lives.

 

Tragedy aside, Salem Express remains one of the largest accessible wrecks in the Egyptian Red Sea and diving it is a spiritual experience, as well as a very satisfying one for all wreck fanatics.

The Brother Islands, the tops of two undersea mountains rising from the depth, can be explored while diving the Red Sea about 50 nautical miles off-shore, near the town of Quseir. Part of the Marine Park, they offer breathtaking underwater scenery, wall diving along their entire perimeter and the possibility to spot a wide variety of pelagics.

 

Their walls are covered in soft corals of all colors, black corals and forests of fan corals, creating a true feast for the eyes. Big tuna, shoals of jack fish and snappers cruise in the blue accompanied by hammerheads, grey reef, silver-tip, silky and oceanic white-tip sharks and mantas.

While diving in this part of the Red Sea also several times huge and spectacular moon fish have been spotted near the reefs.

 

The Aida II, an Egyptian supply vessel and the Numidia, a cargo ship, lie on the walls of the Big Brother and can be explored on this Red Sea diving safari. They are covered in soft and hard corals and they are a real treat.

 

Daedalus Reef, also part of the Marine Park, is the most off-shore of all the dive reefs in the Egyptian Red Sea. It is a big oval reef with a lighthouse and its perimeter of walls offers some of the most stunning diving in the Red Sea. Typical of Daedalus are its huge and pristine hard coral formations and the possibility to spot schooling hammerheads. Thresher sharks, mantas and whale sharks can also be spotted while diving here.

 

Last but not least, this diving safari finishes with Elphinstone, a truly legendary Red Sea diving reef where you can expect the unexpected, with its north and south plateaus and its walls covered in soft corals. Hammerheads and grey reef sharks can also be spotted here on a regular basis.

SANAI CLASSIC

A week-long diving safari starting and ending in Sharm El Sheikh. Visit the best that the Northern Red Sea has to offer. Magnificent drift, reef, wreck and wall diving, caves, plateaus and the big blue. Dive into an underwater world that is unique in both variety and the sheer number of species.

 

1. Day Afternoon/Evening: transfer to New Marina (El Wataneya) port and embark. Welcome on board, cabin arrangement and boat–briefing. Permission work with port authority, sailing very early next morning.

 

2. – 7. Day Morning: sail to nearby Temple or Ras Katy for a check dive. The week long safari will cover the area from the Strait of Tiran, Ras Mohamed National Park and the Gulf of Suez which is usual visited first.

 

The National Park begins at the small bay of Marsa Ghazlani followed by the larger and deeper bay of Marsa Bareika. Continuing along the coast to Ras Za’atar, Jackfish Alley, Eel Garden and Shark Observatory, to the southern end of the peninsula with Anemone City, Shark Reef and Yolanda Reef and ending at the Quay. Because of the geographic position this is a privileged area distinguished to strong massive currents that transport large quantities of plankton and other food that give rise to an extraordinary growth of stony and soft corals and attract large schools of both reef and pelagic marine fauna, over a thousand species in all. Schooling barracuda, jackfish, tuna and many kind of sharks swim in these deep blue waters, especially in summer from June to August, sometimes early September.

 

The safari will also take you to famous sites like the wrecks of Dunraven and Thistlegorm, Shag Rock and the wreck of Kingston, sail to Sha’ab Ali where pods of dolphins are common, explore several spots at Sha’ab Mahmouds reef system or maybe cross to Abu Nuhas.

Don’t miss the four famous reefs in the Strait of Tiran: Jackson, Thomas, Woodhouse and Gordon Reef, probably the most interesting and richest in marine life. You can choose from several dive sites with superb wall and drift diving. In the afternoon of the 7th day the boat will return to Sharm area.

 

7/8. Day Depending on your check out and flight time, there may be another dive or just snorkeling. Return to New Marina (El Wataneya) port and disembark. Transfer to airport or hotel.

NORTH STRAIT OF TIRAN

 This Red Sea Diving itinerary combines the most famous wrecks in the northern Red Sea with stunning wall and hard coral garden reef diving.

 

Dive the famous four wrecks of Abu Nuhas, the Ships’ Graveyard. This reef lies close to the ship-lane toward the Suez Canal and has claimed more ships than any other in the Red Sea. The wrecks are very scenic, covered in corals and they are fantastic for photography, especially the Carnatic, having sunk in 1869.

The very famous SS Thistlegorm and the recently discovered Rosalie Moeller are World War II wrecks and one of the highlights of this cruise. The SS Thistlegorm sunk in 1941, having been bombed by the Germans while on a mission to deliver a cargo of ammunition and war materials to the British troops in North Africa. The Rosalie Moeller, a British coal cargo, suffered the same demise only two days later.

This Red Sea diving safari will also take you to Ras Mohamed National Park at the tip of Sinai, famous for its breath-taking walls rich in soft and fan corals and populated with huge shoals of fish. Nutrient-rich sediments from the Golf of Aqaba attract many fish species and also feed the coral polyps creating a paradise for divers.

 

Dive the 4 famous reefs of the Strait of Tiran, Jackson, Woodhouse, Thomas & Gordon. These magnificent formations, rising from the depth, are often frequented by large pelagic due to the abundance of currents.

 

You will also visit the Red Sea diving reefs off Hurghada which are very rich and wide-ranging. A variety of colorful walls and hard coral gardens with plenty of colorful fish make them well worth a visit.

DAEDALUS-FURY SHOAL

Enjoy the majesty of the off-shore reefs and the splendor of the coastal ones. The shear walls of Elphinstone Reef plunge steeply into the blue richly decorated with soft and fan corals. The north plateau is home to schooling hammerhead and grey reef sharks with frequent sightings of the inquisitive oceanic white-tip sharks.

 

Daedalus Reef, also called Abu El Kizan, is the most off-shore of all the reefs in the Egyptian Red Sea. With walls around the whole of its large perimeter, it is famous for its huge hard coral formations, its schooling hammerheads and sightings of thresher sharks and whale sharks. Big napoleon fish can also be observed looking curiously at the divers while you cruise along the shear walls covered in soft corals. Do not forget to pay a visit to its anemone garden with clouds of clown fish protecting their nests. It is unique in its size and beauty and always a pleasure for the Red Sea divers.

Rocky and Zabargad Islands lie close together to the south-east of Ras Banas. Rocky’s shear walls are covered in a stunning forests of soft and fan corals. Juvenile white-tip sharks can be observed sleeping under huge, very scenic overhangs. Mantas, hammerhead and grey reef sharks often visit the island and napoleon fish dance in your bubbles.

 

Zabargad Island, amazing in its spectacular beauty, was used as a precious stone mine in ancient times. Along its southern side a shallow shelf displays a large number of high pinnacles completely covered in soft corals and clouds of antheas offering amazing diving. The drop-off offers hammerhead, grey reef shark and manta sightings. On its north-eastern side a small shallow wreck can be dived upon.
