DIVE ROUTE

BDE - Brothers, Daedalus, Elphinstone Route

  • The golden triangle includes the famous Brothers Islands, Daedalus Reef and Elphinstone Reef. It is a route with a long navigation distance, since all the dive sites are far from the coast.
  • The Brothers Islands is the highlight of this route. These two islands are located in the middle of the Red Sea and are a refuge of thousands of species, and the encounter with large pelagic is usually common. Their walls are full of coral, the great currents and the spectacular nature of life, are the great references of these islands, not forgetting the sightings of oceanic whitetip, threshers and grey sharks amongst others. We will also dive in the Numidia wreck that with its almost vertical position and the visibility of the Red Sea, makes this wreck a unique visual spectacle. In this area is also the Aida wreck.
  • Our second dive destination will be Daedalus Reef, famous for sightings of hammerhead sharks and large coral formations. Large banks of hammerhead sharks live in the area of the reef and come frequently to feed.
  • Finally, we will visit the Elphinstone Reef, which stands a few meters above the surface and whose life surprises and amazes even the most experienced divers. All kinds of pelagics visit the cleaning stations on this reef where their walls are lost in the depth of this sea.

The highlight on the dives

  • Oceanic whitetip shark "Longimanus" A very curious shark that approaches divers and that is usually a few meters deep. Giant manta rays come to the island for the cleaning stations.
  • Thresher sharks, with their characteristic long fins in the form of a whip, patrol the islands. Banks of hammerhead sharks, sometimes reaching up to 20 specimens. Grey and silky sharks are seen often in the reefs. Whale sharks and tigers sharks are another spectacle you can find. H.H. Numidia - British ship of 107m of length sunk in 1901
