Brother’s Islands: The two Brother’s Islands are a remote and low-lying volcanic group. Tops of mighty underwater mountains, these pinnacles offer extraordinary wall diving along their entire perimeters attracting large pelagics. Oceanic whitetips, hammerheads, and schools of tuna can be seen cruising by. A forest of soft corals sprawls over the dive sites, creating a breathtaking underwater scene.
Daedelus Reef: 180km South of Brother’s Islands, lies the even more remote Daedelus Reef. Protected in 1986, it is an isolated lighthouse surrounded by an oval reef. Drop below the surface and you will find some of the most stunning diving in the Red Sea. Typical of Daedalus are its huge and pristine hard coral walls and the possibility of spotting schooling hammerheads. Thresher sharks, mantas and whale sharks are spotted here too.
Elphinstone Reef: Legendary is the word used to describe Elphinstone Reef. The last standalone reef, this is the final stop of the Red Sea itinerary. Its North and South plateaus and walls are covered in vibrant soft corals, and hammerheads and grey reef sharks are regularly seen on dives. Susceptible to currents, Elphinstone is your best chance to see Oceanic Whitetips and many other blue water pelagics.
