Golden Triangle Route · BDE · Brothers IslandsDaedalus Reef and Elphistone Reef

The wildest Red Sea, the golden triangle is composed of the famous Brothers Islands, Daedalus Reef and Elphistone Reef. Almost all the dives of this route are drifting and along impressive walls in the three most famous Red Sea reefs for the search and sighting of pelagic. With a bit of luck we can find oceanic whitetip shark, gray reef shark, white tip reef shark, hammerhead shark, fox shark, silky shark, and mantas and even, with good luck, the elusive whale sharks that can appear in any moment. On this route, currents can be a very important factor in the dives, so it is highly recommended to have a minimum of 50 dives in order to safely enjoy the entire route.

It is a route with a great distance of navigation, since all the points are far from the coast. Undoubtedly the Brothers Islands, well known by experienced divers, is the highlight of this route. These two islands are located in the middle of the Red Sea and are a refuge for thousands of species and the encounter with large pelagic is usually common. Its walls full of coral, the great currents and the spectacular nature of life, are the great referents of these islands, not forgetting the sightings of longimanus , foxes and grays among others. We will dive into wrecks like the Numidia which, with its almost vertical position and the visibility of the Red Sea, make this fish a unique visual spectacle.

We will dive in Daedalus Reef, famous for shark sightings and large coral formations. Large banks of hammerhead sharks live in the vicinity of the reef and approach each other frequently to feed.

We will visit the Elphistone reef, which juts out a few meters from the surface and whose life surprises and amazes even the most experienced divers. All kinds of pelagics visit the cleaning points on this reef where their walls are lost in the depth of this Sea.
