Choose your route from following Red Sea cruises.

Brothers - Daedalus - Zabargad

The southern Red Sea is renowned for its incredible reefs that are home to both hard and soft corals in pristine condition and pelagics in great numbers. There are many species of shark, including hammerheads which can be found in schools. Other impressive marine encounters may be made with pods of dolphins, schools of bumphead parrotfish and the occasional turtle. The area is home to a selection of wrecks, but undoubtedly the reefs - and their associated life - are the thing that attracts divers. Perhaps the most famous of the dive sites in the region is Elphinstone Reef, a deep coral wall and drift dive that is best seen early in the morning to increase the chance of sighting the schools of hammerheads frequently found here by divers.

Dive Sites

Zabargad Island

Zabargad Island

The Island is very big in size with a lot of potentials for exploration. At the east coast lies the Russian wreck which starts from the depth of 5 meters down to the depth of 24 meters  completely covered with Corals from the outside and full of Glass Fish. At the south coast is located a stretch of Coral Gardens that extends for about 30 meters away from the reef slopping to 14 meters then drops off to an extreme depth. It is a very simple relaxed dive that offers so much to see. There are many small cracks and holes in the reef that are a lit by the Sun Rays penetrating through the cracks on top of the reef.

There is a wreck at the northern side of the reef that had a cargo of pottery. From the marine life have been spotted here Hammerhead Sharks, Oceanic White Tip Sharks, Shoals of Fishes and Anemone Cities. It is possibly to see the Oceanic and the Thresher Sharks. 

Big Brother reef

Big Brother reef

These are two islands that are similar in shape and different with size with a distance of about 1700 m in between them, one is big and the other is small, from this fact both of the island got their names.. Drop point about 100m is offering very often sharks. A Thresher Shark is a resident here and normally Grey Reef Sharks are circling round the plateau. At the depth of 30 up to 35 meters divers are at the middle of the Wreck Aida looking down they will see the main mast the stern holds looking up they will see the accommodation area and the entrance to the engine room looking everywhere a dense garden of soft corals. Take your time looking around and exploring and slowly make your way up to the Wreck, as the shallow part of this dive is very colorful.
