Thistlegorm, Ras Mohamed, Brother Islands, Salem Express
This wonderful mix of Northern Red Sea Wrecks and Reefs, the amazing Brother Islands, and the unparalleled wreck of Salem Express offers the very best opportunity to see one of the worlds top diving destinations in all of its glory
RED SEA VARIATION
After leaving the marina in Hurghada, the boat travels to the famous horseshoe shaped reef of Sha’ab El Erg where there is a really good chance to see dolphins. After this is the most famous wreck of the Red Sea, the SS Thistlegorm. Also close by is the Ras Mohamed National Park, offering a morning dive at the 'Shark Reef', a taster of your next site.
The Brother Islands are the pinnacles of two undersea mountains rising from the depths of the abyss and are located about 60 miles offshore from El Quesir. As part of the Marine Park Islands National Park, these islands offer stunning wall diving, with the walls being covered in soft corals and forests of gorgonians, creating a multitude of ever-changing colours. They attract a diverse array of marine species and large pelagics such as Tuna, Barracudas, Jacks and Snappers that cruise in the blue, accompanied by occasional Hammerheads, Thresher, Silky and Oceanic White Tip Sharks and Mantas.
For the wreck diver, the wrecks of the Aida II, an Egyptian supply vessel, and the Numidia, a cargo ship, lie on the walls of the Big Brother. Both are covered in a rich growth of soft and hard corals. Marine life includes a family of Napoleon Wrasse and Grey Reef Sharks.
Once back in Safaga we will head for the famous wreck of the Salem Express and the superb wall diving at Panorama before heading back towards the marina in Hurghada.
Note: Minimum of 50 logged dives required and no night dives permitted in the Marine Park area by Egyptian Law. These are challenging dives with strong currents, so not for inexperienced divers. Overnight travelling is required for this itinerary.
