Diving the Brother Islands

A top Egypt dive destination, the two Brother islands are for advanced divers who have completed at least 50 dives. For those who venture to the islands, this magnificent dive area is home to dazzling coral reefs and wonderful wrecks and you can even swim alongside whitetip and hammerhead sharks. The dive conditions here are very challenging with exposed areas and strong currents, and the islands are sometimes closed to divers as in the past accidental or deliberate feeding of the sharks has led to changes in their behavior. The islands are easily reached by joining a liveaboard.

Wildlife in Brother Islands

Marine life in the Brothers Islands is vibrant, busy, and exciting. The nutrient-rich waters of the Red Sea offer thrilling sightings of large oceanic whitetip sharks, for which this area is famous. Other shark encounters include hammerhead, silvertip, and grey reef sharks. These clear waters are also home to schools of barracuda and dogtooth tuna. It is the smaller marine life; however, that fill the underwater world of the Brothers Islands with an explosion of color. Massive gorgonian fans spread out amongst densely packed, colorful hard and soft corals, giving homes to a dense array of small, vibrant reef fish.
