In 1901, the Numidia was on her way in the Red Sea corridor and its journey ended at Brothers Islands when it ran aground under the lighthouse of Big Brother.


The wreck lies very close to the sunken Aida. The wild currents of the sea, and the oxygen generated with it, has secured abundant growth of hard and soft corals. Marine life is very prominent here. You may even spot a roaming grey shark or a thresher shark. Barracuda and trevally are plenty in presence. This wreck provides exciting diving for all dive certification levels.
