This dive safari itinerary includes Red sea Marine parks.
These are two Islands that are similar in shape and different in size with a distance about 1700meters between them, One is big and the other is small. Brothers Islands are located in the middle of the Egyptian Red Sea. Brothers Islands are attainable only by liveaboard. Navigation time from Hurghada or Marsa Ghaleb is 6-8-hours. Usually, this transition takes place at night. Brothers Islands are like two brothers - Big Brother (Big brother) and Little Brother (Small brother). Since 1998, the Brothers Islands are National marine parks.
Big Brother. Attraction on land here is a lighthouse built by the British in 1880. The lighthouse had a simple system: normal paraffin lantern lens. Light had benn extended up to 27 km. Marine police employees which work on lighthouse normally allow divers to make a tour of lighthouse, take photos and videos. Guests can see the lighthouse like it was in 19th century.
The underwater world of Brothers is great. Both islands from all sides have drop off walls.
On the North part of Big Brother are 2 wrecks: Numidia, crashed in 1901, and Aida, in 1857. Both wrecksare covered with soft and hard corals and are home to fish, moray eels.
Other underwater attraction point of Big Brother is South plateau. Gray reef sharks are circling round and here there is a big chance to see Trasher shark, Whitetip shark and other deep-sea fishers. Big Brother is also known by big gorgonian.
Little Brother. At the walls of Little brother everything that lives in the Red sea is expected to be seen but Sharks are the reason for many divers to come and dive in this site specially the Hummer heads and the Big Gray reef shark. Currents at this site are very confusing and unoredictable. Divers should always aware of the down currents that are caused by the low tides at the Northern tip of the reef and the Eastern wall.
