Brothers, Daedalus & Elphinstone
The Islands – the Big Brother and the Little Brother – are two small exposed promontories that just come out of the water in the middle of the sea at around 60km from the Egyptian coast line. The Little Brother has a very high concentration of life.The walls are covered all sorts of hard and soft corals in variety of colors and shapes. Of course you will find here plenty of fish. It is not unusual to see sharks: hammerheads, thresher sharks, grey reef sharks and whitetip reef sharks. About one km north of the Little Brother lays the Big Brother.When it is not too windy, you can proceed to dive the wreck NUMIDIA which lies upon the reef on the northern side of the island between 5m and 80m. At the NW side of the island you will find the other wreck: the AIDA. The remaining pieces of the wreck are scattered all over the reef and just the back side of the hull can be found between 34m and 60m.Because of strong current and may be high waves it is not easy to dive at the Brother’s. This safari is only for experienced divers.The Daedalus Reef reef lies about 180km south of Brother Islands. The reef is surrounded by a sheer wall all around, featuring a plateau on its southern side. Reef and hammerhead sharks are often spotted here. The Reef of Elphinstone, is one of the most beautiful reefs in the Red Sea, with north and south plateau, and the walls covered with soft corals, black corals and gorgonias. Hammerheads, oceanic whitetip sharks and grey reef sharks can also be spotted here.
North & Wrecks
The SS Thistlegorm is probably the most famous wreck in the Red Sea. The British cargo ship was on its way to bring military equipment of all kinds for the British troops in North Africa. But then on the 6 th of October 1941 a German bomber attacked the Thistlegorm. The wreck is lying upright on the sea-bottom at 32m depth. Especially interesting is the cargo: Tanks, trucks, motorcycles, weapons, railway carriage and two railway engines.The reef at Abu Nuhas is famous for wrecks.
