This safari offers challenging dives, big drop offs, beautiful coral walls and plenty of large fish. Brother Islands, Daedalus & Elphinstone is a must for all die-hard Red Sea divers!
Big Brother: A 400 meter long island offering fabulous wreck diving and wall diving. The wreck of the Numidia lies on the northern tip between 10 and 80 meter. The north-west side of the island houses the wreck of the Aida. On every section of this reef the wall is covered with corals and life.
Little Brother: Boasts a very high concentration of life within a very small area.
Fan coral forests, overhangs, hard and soft corals in a variety of astonishing colors… and of course there are plenty of fish! With regular sightings of hammerheads, thresher sharks, grey sharks and white tip reef sharks, at the right time of year.
Daedalus: About 180 km south of the Brother Islands, this huge reef is surrounded by a sheer wall and strong currents allowing for fantastic drift diving. The hard corals grow to huge sizes but make sure you also keep an eye on the blue!
Elphinstone Reef: A Red Sea legend. One of the most beautiful reefs, with its north and south plateau’s covered in hard and soft corals and visiting pelagic, this truly is an awesome reef.
