Little Brother

Brothers Island, or El Akhawen, is a “must dive“ for every diver that visits Egypt. This dive site can be reached only via liveaboard boats. The location contains two islands, the small and the big island. This is a more advanced dive as it can have strong currents and deep drop-offs with lots of shark sightings.

The dive site locals include the oceanic whitetip shark, hammerhead sharks, and gray reef sharks, as well as mantas if you are lucky!
