Monday April 2nd

After a good night of sleep on the way to Brothers Islands we woke up and we jumped into the water at the south of Big Brother, hoping to see a Thresher shark. We didn’t find the shark, but we encountered Grey reef shark. Late morning dive was dedicated to the Manta, because she was swimming into the blue and coming back to the reef. So we were able to take great photos of this beautiful creature.

During the afternoon dives we visited two wrecks, Numidia and Aida.

After the fourth dive Chef Sherif prepared Chicken Sheesh Tawook with pasta and Florentine tart.
