DIVING HIGHLIGHTS & BUCKET LIST DIVE SITES:

BROTHER ISLANDS (BIG & SMALL BROTHER)
• One day is spent diving the Brother Islands, two undersea mountains rising from the depths, about 100 kilometers off-shore. Known for its magnificent wall diving and shark sightings, the islands are now strictly controlled and the number of divers is limited – a definite must on any southern Red Sea itinerary.

THE AIDA II
• An Egyptian supply vessel and the Numidia, a cargo ship, lie on the walls of the Big Brother and if the current allows, can be explored on this safari.

DAEDALUS REEF
• This marine park consists of a big oval reef with a lighthouse and its perimeter of walls offers some of the most stunning diving in the Red Sea. Hammerheads, Threshers and Oceanic Whitetip sharks, as well as the magnificent Whale Shark are occasionally spotted close to the reef.

ELPHINSTONE
• A truly legendary Red Sea diving reef where you can expect the unexpected, with its north and south plateaus and walls covered in soft corals. Southern Oceanic White tips, Hammerheads and grey reef sharks can also be spotted here on a regular basis

*Note: No night dives are permitted in the marine parks.
