In addition, the Brothers Islands are home to a fantastic reef life with myriads of colourful reef fishes, pelagic fishes such as Barracudas, Giant trevallies, Tunas and even the magnificent Manta Ray!
The two Islands are only a few hundreds meters apart.
Little Brother Island
Little Brother Island is really great for amazing walls covered by unspoiled hard and soft Coral. The underwater scenery is really breathtaking and diving there is just mind blowing. Hammerhead Sharks, Grey Reef and Silver-tip Sharks are often spotted there. The sandy bottom is at 47m and the top of the reef is quite shallow and makes a great spot for your safety stop!
Big Brother Island
Little Brother Island is the best for Coral but for the big fish action, it is best to dive around Big Brother Island. It is a great spot to encounter the very curious Oceanic White-tip Shark! Other shark species like Hammerhead, Grey, Silver-tip and even the very rare Thresher Shark can be spotted too!
