Route Options

Because of their remote location the dive sites around the two Brother Islands are some of the best and most difficult dive sites of the Red Sea. For this tour it is required that you have at least 50 logged dives. We do not offer night dives and the currents are sometimes very strong . The wrecks of the Aida and Numidia are overgrown with stunning soft corals and are the highlight of this tour.

BIG BROTHER
North; parts of the Aidia and the Numidia are well preserved and overgrown with fascinating soft corals
East; with drift dives along a wall you can see tuna, mackerels, barracudas, turtles and sometimes sharks and dolphins
South; numerous mackerels, Napoleon wrasse and good macro shots
LITTLE BROTHER
North Plateau; descends on a 45° angle and you can see Hammerheads, grey reef sharks and sometimes a white-tip oceanic shark (Longimanus).
South; a place for grey reef sharks, Whiptail shark, Silky shark.
Our opinion: Strong currents, swell and reefs that drop away steeply offer a cruise with a lot of high lights.

The Daedalus Reef, Zabergad and Rocky Island are part of the national Marine Park South. The park offers reefs along breathtaking walls covered with stunning soft coral and beautiful plateaus.

Daedalus Reef (south of the Brother Islands); in the north the reef drops down from a wall into the depth. Very strong currents. Meeting point for Hammerheads and Longimanus.

Rocky Island it is surrounded by a narrow closed fringing reef. Fascinating reefs along beautiful walls. The major highlight are the sharks.

Zabargad here you have the possibility to hover over drop offs or simply enjoy the impressing coral towers while swimming by. Turtles use the island as a nesting place.

Our opinion: Very strong currents and steep reefs offer challenging, exciting and unforgettable dives. Night dives are not allowed in the Marine Park South.

On this tour we go to see the reefs in the south between Ras Gahlib and St. Johns Reef. Rarely visited they offer a unique and almost untouched underwater world.

Gota Soraya small reef with beautifully overgrown wall. You can see sharks and Manta Rays.

Gota Kebir small caves, schools of fish and amazing soft corals.

Habili Ali one of the top spots in the Red Sea, it starts in only 6-7m and can only be reached when the sea is calm.

Habili Jaffar this little gem captivates you with beautiful wall dives. Can also only be reach with calm seas.

Our opinion: A tour where everyone can find something special. Steep walls, coral gardens, complex caves and grottoes provide diversity.
