ABOUT THE RED SEA

THE RED SEA, A DIVING DESTINATION YOU ALWAYS WANT TO RETURN TO.

  • Thousands of divers from all over the world travel to the Egyptian Red Sea and many of them return, year after year. There must be a reason! Perhaps it is because it is considered one of the best diving destinations in the world and without a doubt, the number 1 in value for money?
  • The pleasant climatic conditions, the amazing reef systems, full of life and colour.  The incredible number of spectacular shipwrecks or the possibility of having breathtaking encounters with a great diversity of species.
  • All this as well as the most incredible ancient history to be found anywhere on Earth, making it the destination par excellence for a Great Diving trip.

BDE route: “Brothers, Daedalus & Elphinstone”

  • This is probably the most famous for sightings of large pelagic species.
  • Most of the dives on this route are drifts along breath-taking walls in the three of the most famous reefs of the Red Sea.
  • With a bit of luck, we will be able to spot oceanic white tip sharks, grey reef sharks, white tip reef sharks, hammerheads, thresher sharks, silky sharks, manta rays and even the elusive whale shark!
  • On this route, currents can be a significant factor during the dives, so it is highly recommended to have a minimum of 50 dives to be able to safely enjoy the entire route.

Brother Islands

  • The northernmost part of Egypt's offshore marine park is made up of two islands 60km away from the coast and 140km south from Hurghada. The larger island (complete with a lighthouse from 1883) is 400 metres long with a spectacular plateau on the south east corner which is dotted with coral mountains and famous for thresher and grey reef shark sightings.
  • The western side of the island has two impressive wrecks which both lie almost vertical on the side of the reef. The most spectacular is the Numidia, a large cargo steamer which sank in 1901 and now lies on the tip of the island between 10 and 80 metres covered in soft corals and frequented by large pelagic predators. The smaller wreck of the Aida (sitting between 30 and 65 metres) was a lighthouse authority supply vessel which sank in bad weather in 1957.
  • The smaller island, whilst only a little over 200 metres long, hosts an incredible concentration and variety of marine life. There is a pristine fan coral forest, a massive collection of hard and soft corals and compelling overhangs to explore. The highlight is the fish life; with regular seasonal sightings of hammerhead, thresher, grey reef and oceanic whitetip sharks.

Daedalus

  • This huge tear-drop shaped reef rises from the sea bed in the middle of the Red Sea, 80km offshore and more than 300km south of Hurghada. Easily recognised by its zebra-striped lighthouse, this reef offers some of the most amazing dives in the Red Sea. The sheer walls are covered in over-grown hard coral formations and a variety of reef fish. Napoleon wrasses and turtles are often cruising by, but make sure you keep your eyes open on the blue! Daedalus is one of those places where anything can happen... oceanic white tip, grey reef and thresher sharks are often sighted, but Daedalus is most famous for its scalloped hammerhead sharks which can often be seen in large schools out in the blue during the summer months. The sheer size of this reef means that you can do several dives here and never get bored!

Elphinstone Reef

  • A Red Sea legend; a finger shaped reef, with north and south plateaus covered in hard and soft corals, unpredictable and exciting this truly is an awesome reef where hammerhead sharks are regularly spotted in the summer and oceanic whitetip sharks often congregate in large numbers during late autumn.
