Route Description - Brothers, Daedalus, Elphistone
7 nights Brothers, Daedalus, Elphistone (Hurghada - Port Ghalib) or (Port Ghalib - Hurghada)
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 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 jack fish 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. The huge and spectacular moon fish has also been spotted several times near the reefs.
The Aida II, an Egyptian supply vessel and the Numidia, a cargo ship sunk in 1901, 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 Red Sea diving safari finishes with Elphinstone, a truly legendary reef where you can expect the unexpected, 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.
