Brothers - Daedalus - Elphinstone

Check Avilability

The Brother Islands, the tops of two undersea mountains rising from the depth, are located 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 whole 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 jack fish and snappers cruise in the blue accompanied by hammerhead, grey reef, silver-tip, silky and oceanic white-tip sharks and mantas. The thresher shark, an oceanic species, very rarely spotted close to reefs, circles the walls of the Brothers on a regular basis. The huge and spectacular moonfish can also be observed near the reefs

The Aida, an Egyptian supply vessel and the Numidia, a cargo ship, lie on the walls of the Big Brother. 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 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 here.

Last but not least, this itinerary finishes with Elphinstone, a truly legendary reef with its north and south plateaus and its walls covered in soft corals. Hammerhead and grey reef sharks can also be spotted here on a regular basis.
