Big Brother East

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 magnificent blue water here will defiantly surprise divers with hammerhead sharks and oceanic whitetip sharks which are common in this region.
