Our Simply the Best itinerary takes us on a magical journey to Egypt. It is a favourite for many of our staff, with world-famous marine parks, spectacular drop-offs and the chance to see some big underwater animals. What’s not to love?! Here’s why our Sales Manager, James Evans, loves this itinerary so much.
‘Exploring offshore dive sites is a must for any diver and the offshore sites of Daedalus and the Brothers Islands in the Red Sea are up there with the best in the world.
Descending into the clear blue waters of Daedalus, walls of soft coral and anemones provide a colourful backdrop to schools of hammerheads and if you are lucky, oceanic mantas, huge whale sharks and large numbers of other pelagic species.
On to the Brothers Islands, two pinnacles that reach from the ocean floor to break the surface are decorated in hard and soft corals of every colour. Oceanic white tip sharks patrol these islands alongside reef sharks, hammerheads and pelagic thresher sharks. As your eyes adjust to the dive site, two incredible wrecks sit almost vertical against the reef wall, encrusted in coral and full of fish. Every time you sink beneath the surface on this itinerary, you will be blown away by what the Red Sea has to offer.’
