Brother Islands is a perfect dive site to see sharks. As the only two reefs in this region, they are a great attraction to almost all shark species living in the Red Sea. Hammerheads, fox sharks, gray reef sharks and silvertip sharks swim along the two islands accompanied by tuna, rays and turtles. These are difficult dive sites, but the beauty of this area is amazing. Few other dive sites can compete with it!
There are two Brother Islands, Big Brother and Little Brother. Little Brother is characterized by steep walls with soft corals, which are inhabited by millions of colorful reef fish. The strong north-south currents also bring manta rays and whale sharks to the area. At Big Brother you can find two wrecks on the north side, the Aida II and Namibia.
Strong current. Far from the coast and (medical) facilities.
