Tek Safaris - Brother Islands

The Brothers Islands are two small islands in the Red Sea, situated 67 kilometres from the town of Quesir. Big Brother Island hosts a lighthouse build by the British in 1883 and is a habited island. Small Brother lies in one kilometre south from the Big Brother and is uninhabited.

The islands are a dive site featuring corals and two wrecks: Numidia and Aida. The islands are also famed for encounters with Oceanic Whitetip. Thresher and Hammerhead Sharks. However, they are only suitable for more experienced divers due to the islands' isolated position, the challenging dive conditions, and very strong currents.

In 2012, CNN ranked Big Brother ninth in a list of the world's 50 best dive sites, and second in the Red Sea. A must dive trip for keen technical divers.
