North & Brothers



A comprehensive itinerary, this week long itinerary begins and ends in Hurghada offering divers a mix of some fantastic wrecks in the north and and spectacular wall diving at the Brothers islands further south.

Day one includes a check-out dive at Sha'ab el Erg (Dolphin Reef) before heading to Abu Nuhas reef (famous for its wrecks such as Giannis D and Carnatic) for another, and then a possible night dive here too.

Day three is for discovering one of the world's most famous wrecks, the SS Thistlegorm. At a length of 128 metres and lying at a depth of 30 metres, the impressive ship met her demise in 1941whilst on duty delivering a cargo of ammunition and war materials to the British troops in North Africa. A diver's must-visit in the Red Sea! Overnight sail south to the Brothers.

The next two days are spent exploring the Brothers islands, only accessible by liveaboard and identified by the towering lighthouse on Big Brother island . Enjoy 3 dives a day here along the walls with their incredible coral gardens and colourful residents, whilst keeping an eye out on the blue for schools of pelagic fish and shark encounters. Diving here can be challenging, but the rewards are worth it. The boat sails back north to Safaga after the final dives.
