Overview

Brothers Deadalus Elphinstone, Red Sea

The very best of the Red Sea

Do you dream about diving with sharks? Then this is the trip for you. The Red Sea has many different species of sharks including Tiger sharks, Hammerheads, Oceanic White Tips, Whale sharks, Thresher sharks, Silky and Reef sharks. During the right season, Brothers, Deadalous and Elphinstone are precisely where to find them.

This national park area is located offshore, making liveaboards convenient and exclusive way to visit them. With flourishing corals, deep waters and no daily boats in sight, this is the home for the more uncommon species of the Red Sea.

Brothers Islands:

The northern most part of this offshore national park, the Brothers Islands are located 60km away from the coast and 125km north of Marsa Allam. The larger of the two is 400 metres long with a spectacular plateau on the southeast corner.

Both Brothers offer incredible wall diving, with walls covered in soft corals and forests of gorgonians. The islands attract a wide variety of species including large tuna, jackfish and snappers, not to mention the hammerheads, Oceanic whitetips, silky sharks and mantas. Even the rare thresher shark is commonly spotted around these stunning islands.

For wreck divers, there are two wrecks on the Big Brother; Aida, an Egyptian supply vessel, and the Numidia, a cargo ship that lies against the wall of the Big Brother. Both wrecks are covered in soft and hard corals.

Daedalus:

Located 80km east of Marsa Allam, this isolated, offshore reef can only be visited by a liveaboard and as part of a national park offers some of the most impressive dives in the Red Sea. Less than a kilometre wide, the reef offers coral filled walls and a handsome variety of the common fish species of the Red Sea. Always remember to keep an eye in the blue where anything can be passing by. Oceanic whitetips, thresher sharks, mantas and reef sharks are often spotted here. Daedalus is especially known for scalloped hammerhead sharks, which during the summer months can be seen in large schools.

Elphinstone:

The Elphinstone reef is located 12km offshore and about 30km from Marsa Allam. Famous for drift dives, these take you along the wonderful deep walls, rich with coral. If you´re lucky you could come across Oceanic Whitetips, hammerheads or reef sharks.

With outstanding plateaus on both the south side and the north, you will need a minimum of three dives to fully explore this fantastic dive site.
