Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced diver, there is always the right dive for your level of experience.
 
Although 15 dives are sufficient for many of the sites, we recommend a minimum of 20 – 30 dives or Advanced level to share the experience of the deeper dive sites such as the wreck of the Thistlegorm (max 32 metre depth) and drift-dives around Ras Mohamed National Park (for example Shark Reef/Yolanda Reef) or on the reefs in the Straits of Tiran (Jackson/Woodhouse – drop-offs/drift diving).
 
After diving the Ras Mohamed National Park, we pass into the Gulf of Suez and visit the reef system of Shaab Mahmoud where one of the oldest wrecks, the Dunraven (sunk in 1889), and the WWII wreck, the Thistlegorm, are located.
 
Enjoy the excitement of diving the Southern tip of the Sinai and savour the backdrop of a mountainous desert landscape whilst discovering the hidden magical beauty beneath the waves where nature, by contrast, has provided a spectacular display of colourful coral reefs and an array of tropical fish life.

ONLY 10 PLACES LEFT!

from 700 euro

Departing from Hurghada.

The Brothers (Al Ikhwan or El Akhawein) are lying in the middle of the Red Sea, 36 nautical miles (70 km) east of El Quseir.

It exists out of two islands that emerge from a depth of more than 500 m. Their location is exposed to the current and a common meeting point for all pelagic fauna that are coming from the depths and are making this reef one of the top 10 dive sites in Egypt and the Red Sea.

From 1996 to 1998 divers have been banned by the Egyptian government because the many boats visiting the place were causing problems. The Brothers are now a national park that requires a permit from the Coast Guard and a diving fee of 50 €.

The two islands are situated less than 1 km from each other. The largest in the north is called Big Brother and the smaller one south … Little Brother.

Big Brother

The largest of the two brothers islands is only 300 m long and is known for its 100 m high stone lighthouse built by the English in 1880 in the purest Victorian style. Big brother is only inhabited by some soldiers who maintain the lighthouse and protect the surroundings.

Big Brother has 2 wrecks:

The Numidia, in the far north, is a British freighter that sank in 1901 with a length of 145 m, carrying railway equipment. It is lying on its starboard between 15 and 80 m. We were not able to do this dive due to poor weather conditions that dampened our enthusiasm when the zodiac of another boat of Dune returned.

The Aida, on the northwest, is an Egyptian troop transport vessel of 75 m that sank in 1947 due to bad weather. The wreck is lying in an upright position with the back resting at 60 m and the shallower bow at 25 m, which allows easy access to the cargo holds. We went 2 times down without entering inside because of the 30 m depth limit applicable in Egypt at that time.

Daedalus

Daedalus is situated 100 miles south of the Brothers Islands and is not really an island. In fact it is a huge circular reef with a lighthouse in its centre which hosts a group of soldiers like at the Brothers. A long bridge reunites this area built in the southwest part of the edge of the reef, where the boats come to moor. A beautiful excursion, when soldiers permit it, is a visit to the lighthouse, where the panorama on the top is unique!

The possibilities to dive are numerous because of the size of the reef. The northern part is often chosen, when the weather conditions allow it, for the first dive at dawn and is an ideal area for large gatherings. Gray sharks and white tip reef sharks, schools of hammerheads, big trevally and barracudas. Manta rays and eagle rays are part of the visitors of this area. There is also a wreck located north of the reef, but unfortunately off limits to dive without special blends. The peculiarities of the drop off on the west, besides the beautiful soft and black corals, are a huge colony of sea anemones with their clownfish in the more shallow area of the drop off, a place that is also nice for snorkelling. The wall on the east side, consisting of madreporic formations, is also a place where all types of gatherings are possible. Near the bridge the coral “pyramid” is lying, coral formations attached to the drop off at a depth of 8 meters that are rising to the surface.
