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 colours, black corals and forests of fan corals, creating a true feast for the eyes. Big tuna, shoals of jackfish 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 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.

Wild Coast Student Tour - Sardine Run 2020

The Just Africa Scuba Career Development students along with the Just Africa Life Skills Preparation Year students will be touring with us to Cintsa on the Wild Coast, 45km north of East London in the Eastern Cape.

The Sardine Run is an annual migration of sardines up the East Coast of South Africa from the Southern Cape to Kwa-Zulu Natal, where the fish spawn.
They follow a cooler than usual counter-current which passes close in-shore and there is an array of marine predators ready to meet them, from thousands of Cape Gannets, huge pods of Common Dolphins, several shark species, such as Dusky sharks and Copper sharks all the way up to the impressive Brydes Whales.
