Step off the yacht for your first taste of the salty Red Sea into clouds of orange anthias and swirls of blue fusiliers swarming the healthy corals of the reef ecosystem for your first check out dives of the trip. Look for crocodile fish, dolphins, pipefish, huge turtles, and even the resident manatees that call these crystal clear waters home all year around as we make our way off the beaten track into the Southern Red Sea. 140 km south of Hurghada, lies the Brother Islands, where we will make three dives a day in this pristine marine park. The 12 dive sites around the islands including two enormous wrecks, are the best places to see and dive with sharks including: hammerheads, silvertips, reef, thresher sharks, and oceanic whitetips! Not to mention the unspoiled, breath-taking coral mountains home to a myriad of colorful reef fish, as well as jaw-dropping walls with pelagic fish such as trevally, mackerel, and tuna hunting by the dozens. More than 80 km offshore, lies an enormous teardrop-shaped reef called Daedulus, famous for schooling scalloped hammerhead sharks off in the blue as well as its stunning walls overgrown with hard coral formations teeming with fish life, turtles, huge napoleon wrasse, and hopefully a few thresher sharks on the drift dives here. The legendary, Elphinstone, a finger-shaped reef, was made famous by Oceanic whitetip sharks that congregate here from October to December. However, dolphins, tiger sharks, hammerheads, and reef sharks are also spotted on these abundant coral covered plateaus. After a week of wrecks, drops offs, walls, caverns, and drift dives, enjoy two relaxing dives near Hurghada before cruising into port in the early afternoon. Throughout the week, your Ninja guide, Jay Clue, will be offering talks on conservation and customized photography workshops. Representatives from the Red Sea Shark Trust, will be teaching us all about their research with the marine life there, their findings, and the global threats facing sharks worldwide.
