The best dive sites in the Red Sea – Brothers, Daedalus and Elphinstone!

Brothers Islands are two peaks of an underwater mountain (Small and Big Brother) that rise to the surface of the Red Sea about 100 kilometers off the coast of Egypt. The Brothers Islands offer world-class wall diving with top visibility. The walls are covered with soft corals and angel wing corals, creating a stunning color spectrum. The remote location of the area attracts a lot of marine animals such as big tuna, horse mackerel and snappers, followed by bigger predators such as hammerhead, whitefish and fox sharks. Reef sharks are almost certainly seen on Small Brother. Devilishness is also a very common sight in Brotheres. There is also something to see at the Brothere for the wreck diver. The Egyptian connecting boat AIDA II and the cargo ship Numidia are resting on Big Brother. Both wrecks are covered in coral throughout.

The Daedelus Reef is also part of a marine protected area. Daedelus is a large reef with a lighthouse. It is the furthest reef from the continent in the Red Sea. Hard corals, hammer sharks and reef sharks are common sightings at Daedelus.

The northern tip of Elphinstone ’s reef is covered in soft coral and its colors in the morning circle are unique. The white-tailed shark is also a common sight on Elphinstone. At the southern tip of the Elphinstone Reef is the famous arch, located at a depth of 45-56 meters.
