The world renowned Big Brother islands offer some of the best diving in Egypt, especially for shark sightings. Divers can expect to get up close and personal with oceanic white tips, silver tips, grey reef sharks and the intimidating hammerheads. You might even get the chance to see the very rare thresher shark with its exceptionally long tail.

Also on site is the Aida II, a sunken vessel from the fifties that lies at a steep angle between 25 and 65 metres down. Take a swim through the engine room and be mesmerized by large schools of glass fish, as well as groupers that inhabit the stern of this once 75 metre long ship, now covered in hard and soft coral. If you’re not looking to dive to great depths, you might enjoy the experience of the nearby Numidia wreck with its bow sitting at only 12 metres. Originally headed for Calcutta, the story goes that the ship was incorrectly navigated by the second officer and has now been submerged for over 100 years for divers to enjoy.
