Diving Highlights and Bucket List Dive Sites:

The Brother Islands

One day is spent diving the Brother Islands, two undersea mountains rising from the depths, about 100 kilometres off-shore. Known for its magnificent wall diving and shark sightings, the islands are now strictly controlled and the number of divers is limited – a definite must on any southern Red Sea itinerary.

The Aida II wreck

An Egyptian supply vessel and the Numidia, a cargo ship, lies on the walls of the Big Brother and if the current allows, can be explored on this safari.

Daedalus Reef

This is another marine park consisting of a big oval reef with a lighthouse and its perimeter of walls offers some of the most stunning diving in the Red Sea.
Hammerheads, Threshers and Oceanic Whitetip sharks, as well as the magnificent Whale Shark are occasionally spotted close to the reef.

Elphinstone

A truly legendary Red Sea diving reef where you can expect the unexpected, with its north and south plateaus and its walls covered in soft corals. Southern Oceanic White tips, Hammerheads and grey reef sharks can also be spotted here on a regular basis

Stunning and brand new liveaboard which has just been added to the fleet. The salon and dining area are separated and extremely comfortable, inviting you to relax and to enjoy the entertainment provided by the full audio-visual system. Sea Serpent Glory’s two sundecks, one partially shaded, are very spacious and generously furnished with mattresses and cushions, ideal for taking a nap between dives or enjoying the sunset.  The dive racks are arranged along the walls of the teak diving platform which makes kitting up and entering the water very easy for the divers as there is no need to walk down any stairs with full gear.
