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 coralsof all colours, black corals and forrests of fan corals, creating a true feast for the eyes. Big tuna, shoals of jack fish and snappers cruise in the blue accompanied by hammerhead, grey reef, silver-tip, silky and oceanic white-tip sharks and mantas. The thresher shark, an oceanic species, very rarely spotted close to reefs, circles the walls of the Brothers on a regular basis. The huge and spectacular moon fish can also be observed near the reefs.
Like a huge aquarium, all the reef fish in their colourful beauty will meet your eye accompanied by turtles, napoleon fish, shoals of tuna and jack fish and all the pelagics you can think of such as hammerheads, all the reef and oceanic sharks including the very rare thresher shark, mantas and moonfish and the amazing whale shark. Wrecks covered in soft corals, such as the Numibia, will astonish you on the Big Brother Island.
On your way back along the coast you will visit Elphinstone and the Safaga/Hurghada areas. A huge variety of walls and shallow reefs covered in corals and fish of all the colours of the rainbow, enjoying shark sightings and amazing wall and plateau diving at Elphinstone… The list of marvels is endless!
Every area and every reef will leave you with unforgettable memories and the wish to come back as soon as possible to visit the amazing and unique underwater world of the Egyptian Red Sea.
