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 offers 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 colors, 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.

Frequently Asked Questions


What is the age limits?

In most regions, the minimum age is 10 years old, however in some areas, local law may require a higher minimum age limit. Young participants need the approval and support of their parent or guardian. There is no upper age limit. To dive, you must be in good overall health, particularly your respiratory and circulatory systems. Mentally, you need a mature attitude, good judgement and the self-discipline to follow diving guidelines.

What about my ears?

Your ears will not be a problem, assuming you have no irregularities in your ears and sinuses. The discomfort is the normal effect of water pressure pressing on your eardrums. Fortunately, our bodies are designed to adjust to pressure changes in our surroundings – you just need to learn how. If you have no difficulties adjusting to air pressure when flying, you'll most likely experience no problems learning to adjust to water pressure while diving.

I'm not a great swimmer?

Some swimming ability is required. You need to have basic swim skills and be able to comfortably maintain yourself in the water, but you do not have to be a great or even good swimmer. Your PADI Instructor will assess this.

Is diving risky?

Diving does present some inherent risks. You can reduce your chances of having problems while diving by following basic safety rules and learning simple skills. Your dive professional takes precautions, uses experience and exercises good judgement to help keep you as safe as possible. People dive safely every day. However, any time people are in the water and are breathing compressed gas underwater, there is the potential for problems to occur.
