There are all good things to say about this trip.  We were on the Brothers
Islands itinerary, which is 2 days at Big Brother Island and 2 days at
Small Brother Island, both about an 8 hr. steam from Safaga, Egypt (south
of Hurghada).  Lots of shark sightings - grey reef, one oceanic white tip,
and lots of beautiful thresher sharks.  Loads of soft corals in all colors
- pink, orange, white, red & yellow.  Loads of tropical fish - the
beautiful masked butterflyfish, bannerfish, batfish, tons of giant morays,
some 10 feet long.  Really friendly Humphead Napoleon Wrasse as big as you
are.  Lots of little tropicals, anthias, etc.  Nudis, crabs, shrimp, gobies
and on and on.  There is a bit of current and diving is mostly from

As for the staff on the boat - every single person from the kitchen guys to
divemasters to Captain - friendly, caring, helpful, respectful of
equipment, all made for a memorable trip.  The boat itself is very well
maintained.  The food was also very good - lots of warming soups, salads,
vegey dishes, meats, fish, Egyptian - very accomodating to special dietary
needs.  Great trip - cannot wait to take another Blue o Two!
