Incredible wall diving
Diverse range of marine life
Strong currents

The Brothers Islands liveaboard trip offers a very diverse underwater landscape. Two pinnacles that rise from the surface hide a true underwater treasure. Some of the best walls you will find in the Red Sea are here. Big Brother is where the 2 ships Aida and Numidia met their ends. The Numidia was once an Indian cargo ship that sunken in 1901. Now it’s home to fish and corals that cover the remains of the metal framework. Here, shifting currents bring lots of food that attracts loads of marine inhabitants, such as large grouper, snapper, barracudas, scorpionfish, Napoleons, and octopi. Sometimes gray reef sharks patrol the area. The Aida became a wreck much later, in 1957. It hangs on the edge of the northern tip not far from the Numidia. The wreck is completely coated in soft and hard corals. Little Brother is represented mostly by walls, except in the northern part where they become a reef that drops to a plateau. This area is popular for sharks. Silvertip sharks and gray reef sharks are frequent sights in this part of the destination. Brothers Islands cruises start from Port Ghalib or from the port of Hurghada
