Reiserute

Red Sea, EgyptWith awesome visibility and breath-taking soft corals, the Red Sea is one of the most popular scuba diving destinations in the world. There are over one thousand species of fish in the Red Sea, 20 percent of which can be found nowhere else in the world. It is hard to believe that where the Egyptian desert sands end, a marine paradise begins. Ironically, Egypt's desert climate has created an ideal liveaboard scuba diving setting. 

It is one of the sunniest places on the planet, therefore, corals and their tiny guests thrive on an overabundance of solar energy. The Red Sea is the resting place of many intriguing wrecks included several WWII ships that house countless artifacts.

About Brothers/Daedalus/Elphinstone
  • Both island locations are in the middle of the Red Sea (9 Hours by motor yacht from the coast.)They are pinnacle islands, meaning that below the surface, their walls plummet hundreds of feet vertically down, without any sandy beaches or shallow reefs around. 
  • Surrounded by open ocean, chances of spotting big game, such as rays, sharks, and other pelagic predators, are very high around the islands. Grey Reef Sharks, Thresher Sharks, and Hammerhead schools are residents. Oceanic white tip at certain times of the year.
  • 2 x Wrecks on Big Brother (Aida and Numidia)
  • One night dive is offered on this itinerary as night diving is not offered at the Brothers, regulated by the Egyptian Government, however early dawn dives are offered each morning before breakfast.
The Red Sea is considered to be one of the 7 Wonders of the underwater world, harbouring more than 1,000 species of invertebrates and over 200 species of soft and hard coral.

The Red Sea takes its name from the periodic algal blooms that occur here painting the sea with a reddish hue, and not the red-tinted Egyptian mountain ranges that surround it. Variety is in no short supply either and depending on where you choose to dive. If it isn't the first destination to crop up in a wow conversation, it is typically among the first 3. In other places vibrant reefs stretch out far into the sea and form intricate labyrinths of plateaus, lagoons, caves and gardens.Few locations crop up in conversations about scuba diving the way that the Red Sea does. These areas in the south of Egypt are your best bet for encounters with oceanic whitetip sharks and large schools of fish. The high level of endemism here is one of the main factors that makes Egypt scuba diving so interesting. John's which satisfy even the most experienced scuba divers.e.

Diving in Egypt as a whole is a pretty special attraction and like a box of Quality Street - everybody has their own favourite. Join an Egyptian liveaboard to experience the best diving that this region has to offer. Your diving holiday can include shallow patch reefs, drift dives and walls, or a collection of some of the most interesting wrecks you are likely to find anywhere. It's a diver's paradise, with the warmest of warm seas, very little wave action and unsurpassed visibility. The legendary dive location that is Ras Mohammed, wrecks the likes of the Thistlegorm and the Straits of Tiran are all easily accessible from Sharm El Sheikh. They are also home to interesting caves and have many tunnels to explore

The Red Sea dive sites offer you unobstructed opportunities to spot tropical marine life in crystal clear waters, ranging from sharks and dolphins to gorgonian fans and feather-stars. Dotted with at least 10 other interesting wreck sites, the area is also alive with big fish such as barracuda, turtles and eagle rays.

One moment you could find yourself on a coral garden atop a summit and the next a sheer wall could plunge thousands of feet into dark ocean depths. Some would say that Sharm El Sheikh on the Sinai Peninsula has the best of what the Red Sea has to offer. Hurghada and Marsa Alam offer you a starting point from which to explore the Abu Nuhas wreck system, and incredibly rich sites and pelagic shark action at The Brothers, Daedalus Reef and St. John's.

Best time to visit this destination: 
Egypt can be dived all year but the water temperatures do vary a lot. The warmest period is between June to August where you can get water temperatures up to 30C, and the coldest period is February with temperatures down to 22ºC, so make sure you bring adequate wet suites. 
You should also consider the air temperature as it can get up to 40ºC in August and down to 20ºC during the winter months from December to February. If you are keen meeting whale sharks your best bet would be to travel between the end of May to the end of July when you can expect to see this awesome creature (mainly in the Northern part of the Red Sea). During this warmer period it tends to be the best time to see a wide range of marine life as the plankton blooms and this bring in the big mantas to feed as well as nesting turtles. The summer months is also the best time to spot the shy hammerhead sharks. The benefit of travelling during the winter months is of course the more pleasant topside temperatures, superior visibility and this is the time where you can hopefully see the thresher shark and dolphins.
Water Temperature: From 23 - 29ºC
Visibility: Depending on the time of year but between 20-40m
