Best of the Red Sea

The Reef Elphinstone, a truly legendary reef, is one of the most beautiful reefs in the red sea, with its north and south plateau’s, and its walls covered in soft corals, black corals, wire corals and gogonias. Hammerheads, Oceanic White Tip Sharks and Grey Reef Sharks can also be spotted here on a regular basis.

The Daedalus Reef is a huge reef formation that lies at about 180 km south of Brother Islands. The reef is surrounded by a sheer wall all around, featuring a plateau in its southern side that goes from 30 m beside the reef to 40 m on the edge of the drop-off. If the weather is good, try to get as far north as possible and drift along one of the sides of the reef. Reef and Hammerhead Sharks are often spotted here. UW life is here more abundant than anywhere else, with schools of surgeons, fusiliers, carangids.

The Island of Zabargad is a superb dive spot. Here you can dive along walls, hover over drop offs or dive slowly in the shallow area, watching the fish and admire the coral garden. At the northside of Zabargad lies a nameless wreck. The 70-m long ship lies upside down in 24-m depths. The whole stern section is nearly intact- stairs, rail, lings, davit and the bridge.

Rocky Island is a mythical site that represents the diver’s dream. The fringing reef that circles the entire perimeter of the island drops steeply to an astonishing depth and the constant currents that flow all along the year favour the growth of all different kinds of life in a continuous struggle for a place on the reef. The walls are absolutely covered with the most beautiful soft corals ever found, as well as gorgonias, fans, sponges and black coral trees. Because of its isolated situation and the reduced dimensions of the reef wall, everything seems to concentrate on the surroundings of this small islet. Reef sharks, specially Grey and Silver Tips, you can watch in the blue and may be Manta Rays, Sailfish and dolphins.

Deep, deep in the south (in the near of Rocky Island) are the St. John’s Reefs. Here you will find exciting drop-offs. The wall of one of the reefs is overgrown with big gorgonias, the wall of the other reef is overgrown with all kinds of colourful soft corals. You will find a lot of fish and in the blue you can see with a little bit luck “big fish” like Hammerhead, Grey Reef Sharks, Silver Tip and White Tip Reef Sharks and Barracudas, Tunas and Mackerels. Sometimes even you can see Mantas and dolphins.

North – Straits of Tiran

The “Thistlegorm”is probably the most famous wreck in the Red Sea. The British ship was on the way to Egypt to bring military equipment of all kinds for the British troops in North Africa. But then on the 6 th of October 1941 a German bomber attacked the Thistlegorm. Now the wreck is lying upright on the sea-bottom at 30-m depth. Especially interesting is the cargo: Tanks, trucks, motorcycles, weapons, railway carriage and one railway engine.

The Reef at Abu Nuhas is famous for wrecks. There are 4 wrecks here, which are today an attraction point for divers all around the world. For example the Greek cargo ship “Giannis D.”, which ran aground the reef on 19 th March 1983 and sank a short time afterwards. It is now lying in a maximum depth of 27 m and is overgrown with hard- and softcorals. The ship cracked down in the middle. The better part of the two halves is the stern section. Here it is easy to dive inside the wreck, because there are a lot of entry and exit points. Because the wreck is leaning on a 45° angle you will find yourself swimming up a stairwell which your mind tells you are heading down. This effect is very disorientating.

The steamship “Carnatic” struck the reef in September 1869. She sank the following day as the weather worsened. She lies in about 24-m depths. She has broken up amidships, leaving her bow and stern intact. The decking has fallen away to be replaced by a thick growth of tube sponges, alcyonarians and occasional table corals, making her very photogenic. She is also laid open to light from above and is easily penetrated.

The “Dunraven”, a steam and sail-powered vessel used to transport spices and timber, ran aground the reef Shaab Machmud in March 1876 during a voyage from Bombay to Newcastle and sank quickly. The ship broke in two, and her two halves came to rest on the sea floor. The wreck lies upside down with the stern at a depth of 28 m and the bow at 18 m. At the stern you find the propeller and the rudder, which are overgrown with corals. Inside the wreck you see thousands of glassfish.

The marine park Ras Mohammed offers dreamlike diving spots. For example Shark Reef and Jolanda Reef. Both reefs are standing on a plateau, which is 20 m deep. The edges of the plateau fall down to more than 200 m. At the reef you will find nice softcorals, fish are plentiful. With luck you can see sharks during your early morning dive. At Jolanda Reef you can see the cargo of a Cypriot freighter “Jolanda” which ran aground in 1980: a large quantity of household toilets!

The Brother Islands one of the best diving spots in the world. The Islands – the Big Brother and the Little Brother – are two small isolated promontories that just come out of the water in the middle of the sea at some 60 km from the coast.

The Little Brother has a very high concentration of life in a much reduced area. The walls are covered literally with sponges, anemones and all sorts of soft coral alcyonarian in an astonishing variety of colors and shapes. Of course you will find here plenty of fish. It is not unusual to see sharks: hammerheads, thresher sharks, grey sharks, and silvertip and white tip reef sharks. About one km north of the Little Brother lays the Big Brother. Situated, in the middle of the island, is a lighthouse. When it is not too windy, you can proceed to dive the wreck “NUMIDIA” which lies upon the reef on the northern side of the island between 10 and 80 m. This 150 m long ship sunk 100 years ago and is now completely covered with both hard and soft corals and gorgonians. A fantastic view!

At the NW side of the island you will find the other wreck: the “AIDA”. This 82 m long steam ship sunk 1957. The remaining pieces of the wreck are scattered all over the reef and just the back side of the hull can be found between 30 and 60 m. It is nicely overgrown and worth to visit. Because of strong current and may be high waves it is not easy to dive at the Brother’s. This safari is only for experience divers.
