Itinerary: The Brother Islands and Elphinstone

Dates:      13th- 20th June 2014

Aboard:   M/Y Blue Voyager

 

The vessel...

Built in 2006, the Red Sea vessel M/Y blue Voyager is the most recent addition to blue o two and underwent a 10 week refurbishment to ensure that she was sparkling in time for her first sailing at the beginning of April 2011. She is a 37 metre, steel hulled vessel with the capacity to sleep 24 divers in spacious twin and double cabins. She features a separate dining area and sky lounge, much like M/Y blue Horizon and a large dive deck. M/Y blue Voyager is equipped with a nitrox membrane, booster pump and can also cater for rebreather divers.

 

The itinerary...

Experience two of the finest sites in the Red Sea. A part of the Marine Park, the Brother islands offer breath-taking underwater scenery, wall diving, wreck diving and an abundance of marine wildlife. Elphinstone Reef is a legend in the Red Sea. Covered in hard and soft corals and visiting pelagics, this truly is an awesome reef.

Itinerary Highlights:

 

Big Brother

A 400 metre long island offering fabulous wreck diving and wall diving. The wreck of the Numidia lies on the northern tip between 10 and 80 metres. The north-west side of the island houses the wreck of the Aida. On every section of this reef the wall is covered with corals and life.

Little Brother

Boasts a very high concentration of life within a very small area. Fan coral forests, overhangs, hard and soft corals in a variety of astonishing colours… and of course there are plenty of fish! With regular sightings of hammerheads, thresher sharks, grey sharks and white tip reef sharks, at the right time of year.

Elphinstone Reef

A Red Sea legend. One of the most beautiful reefs, with its north and south plateau's covered in hard and soft corals and visiting pelagics, this truly is an awesome reef.
