Itinerary Highlights:

Focuses on the reef systems of the Brothers and Daedalus and the steep wall dives of Elphinstone. Drift dives, daring drops offs, pelagic encounters and even wreck dives, the best the Red Sea has to offer and a few night dives but not guaranteed.

 

Big Brother - The western side of the island has two impressive wrecks which both lie almost vertical on the side of the reef. The most spectacular is the Numidia, a large cargo steamer which sank in 1901 and now lies on the tip of the island between 10 and 80 metres covered in soft corals and frequented by large pelagics. The smaller wreck of the Aida (sitting between 30 and 65 metres) was a lighthouse authority supply vessel which sank in bad weather in 1957.

 

Little Brother - The smaller island, a little over 200 metres long, hosts an incredible concentration and variety of marine life. Pristine fan coral forest, a massive collection of hard and soft corals and compelling overhangs to explore. The highlight is the fish life; with regular seasonal sightings of hammerhead, thresher, grey reef and oceanic whitetip sharks.

 

Daedalus - This huge tear-drop shaped reef rises from the sea bed in the middle of the Red Sea, easily recognised by its zebra-striped lighthouse. The sheer walls are covered in over-grown hard coral formations and a variety of reef fish. Napoleon wrasses and turtles are often cruising by, oceanic white tip, grey reef and thresher sharks are often sighted, but Daedalus is most famous for its scalloped hammerhead sharks which can often be seen in large schools out in the blue (summer months).

 

Elphinstone Reef - A Red Sea legend; a finger shaped reef, with north and south plateaus covered in hard and soft corals, unpredictable and exciting this truly is an awesome reef.

 

Fury Shoal - This large cluster of reefs offers unforgettable and easy dives. Fury Shoal can prove to be surprising and diverse. Each dive site has its particularity: from dolphins, to stunning hard coral formations and not forgetting the two little wrecks "Tug Boat" and the "Yacht".
