Elphinstone - Brothers

Please note: Emperor requires that you have 30 logged dives to dive in the Marine Parks and you are expected to be able to complete each dive with your buddy or following the guide. The guides may not enter the water and remain onboard as surface support for some dives. No night dives are allowed in the Marine Parks. These are challenging dives with strong currents, so not for inexperienced divers. Adverse weather can affect this route.

This trip offers you some of the best diving in the Red Sea and includes Big and Little Brothers and Elphinstone. With less distance to travel than the Simply the Best route, you have more time to dive these iconic sites as well as dive around Torombi and Sha’ab Abu Dabab on the way to and from Port Ghalib. Depending on prevailing weather conditions your guides will pick sites suitable for night dives outside the Marine Park.

The Brother Islands are the pinnacles of two undersea mountains rising from the depths of the abyss, located about 60 miles offshore. Part of the Marine Park Islands National Park, they offer stunning wall diving with the walls being covered in soft corals and forests of gorgonians creating a kaleidoscope of ever-changing colours. They attract a diverse array of marine species and large pelagics. Large tuna, jacks and snappers cruise in the blue, accompanied by occasional hammerheads, silvertips, silky and oceanic white tip sharks and mantas. Even the rare thresher shark can be found here. Sightings of the grey reef shark are almost guaranteed on the North and South Plateaux of Small Brother.

If it's wrecks you're after, then the Aida II, an Egyptian supply vessel, and the Numidia, a cargo ship, lie on the walls of 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.

Elphinstone, with its sheer walls covered in soft corals, offers a likely encounter with oceanic white tip sharks.
