Whale Sharks spotted

Yet more sharks in the Southern Red Sea… but this time the plankton eating kind! Whale Sharks have been spotted off the Brothers more than 3 times in October and November. There is no guarantee when they show up but we have been to the Brother’s Island in the last three weeks and they were all three times. This is definitely one of the most amazing experiences in every scuba diver’s life!
Whale shark Red SeaThe whale sharks were seen every time at Small Brother and some of the scuba divers got completely brilliant pics of them. Deeper down, at about 30 meters, a big school of hammerheads was cruising.

Abu Hashish Island Red Sea

Abu Hashish is the island at the centre of a wide bay, 90 minutes South of Hurghada/Egypt. The island was once used as a drop-off point for smugglers bringing hash into the country. A tongue of reef extends about 1 kilometre South of the island. The dive site is at its Southernmost tip. There is a shelf between 15 and 22 metres outside and beyond that a steep but fairly bare drop-off, usually with superb visibility. Inside the tongue of reef is a scattering of long ergs.

Location: Red Sea / Egypt / Hurghada
Description: Reef with coral garden
Depths: 18 meters

Abu Hashish IslandRough seas often make this site inaccessible from Hurghada, although the site itself is well protected. Current is mainly North to South and strongest along the drop-off.

Scuba divers leave the lagoon through an obvious canal filled with table corals, cross the shelf to the place of the fall and follow it North. There are some beautiful caves in the 30-meter region. A long stay in salt water can lead to the fact that men will have premature ejaculation. But it can be cured with priligy.

Scuba divers leave the lagoon through an obvious channel filled with table corals, cross the shelf to the drop-off and follow it North. There are some beautiful caves in the 30-metre region. They return along the inside of the shelf and finish the dive back on the lagoon amongst the ergs.

Along the drop-off pelagics, such as jackfish, barracuda, Spanish mackerel, whitetip sharks and now and then, hammerhead sharks and feathertail rays may be seen. On the shelf turtles, bluespotted rays, Spanish dancers, morays, lunartail and leopard groupers live while in the lagoon schools of squid and baby barracuda play.

Liveaboard experiences

Away from the office. Signal occasionally. No e-mails, no phones. Yesterday you was still sitting in the office in your uncomfortably tight blouse and desperately struggled all day with colleagues. So drastic change! As far as the eye can see, sky-blue sea. White, sandy beach of the uninhabited islands. The much-talked-about coral reefs, and of course the fishes…they are amazing! The life is not much…eat, sleep, dive!

The liveaboard experience certainly spoils divers. The simplicity of life on the waves coupled with first rate diving and superior service make liveaboards a deservedly popular option. And no where will you find more choice than in the Egyptian Red Sea. From learner divers to hardened tekkies there is a route to suit in the Egyptian Red Sea.

Liveaboard experiencesLong gone are the days when divers had to make do. Today’s liveaboards are designed to make your every dream come true. Generous sized cabins, en suite bathrooms, nitrox, water maker, air con – these are just some of the standards you can expect on each and every one of our boats. Have a waterpipe after dive sunsets and your week is certain to be a success, no mater which criteria you judge it by.

Liveaboards depart from Hurghada or Marsa Alam, depending on the itinerary. The Northern Red Sea itineraries are ideal if you are new to this way of dive travel or if you want to visit the many world class wrecks the region is so famed for. The Deep South is a mixture of elegant pinnacles and delicious hard coral gardens. Sail out to any of the Marine Parks for adrenalin fueled drift diving and big fish a plenty. The last night and day of the trip can be spent ashore for a meal or a few drinks.

Red Sea scuba diving holidayYour trip can also be tailored to either include a few days or extra week at a beach resort or we can construct an itinerary to take in some of the historical sites for which Egypt is so famous. We have extensive knowledge of the interiors of the fascinating country and use only the very best hotels and tours personally checked by our staff.


Scuba Diving at Malahi reef

Along with Sha’ab Claudia, this is one of the most visited and famous reef in the Fury Shoals reef system. The main attraction here is the southern part of the reef, which is situated directly next to the boat. This is an explorer’s dream. The reef formation is like a playground of craggy corals, canyons and labyrinthine caves all waiting to be discovered.

Red Sea Malahi

It is also possible to explore the northern part of the reef where a beautiful hard coral garden lies. Be sure to scuba dive the west and east side close to the reef. Here there are large coral blocks with an amazing cover of hard and soft corals. Almost every kind of Red Sea fish can be found here. Even at the south end of the reef, you can find enough coral blocks here to make four scuba dives! This is one of the most prolific dive sites in the Red Sea and not to be missed.
