Meals are served buffet-style three times a day. Afternoon snacks as well as coffee, tea and water are also included in the price. Nitrox is of course free of charge for certified Nitrox divers.
Sharks, wrecks and wall diving, all is possible on the famous Brother Islands. The well-known thresher shark cleaning station on Little Brother, grey reef sharks, hammerheads and oceanic white tip sharks guarantee exciting dives. The spectacular drop-offs are overgrown with soft corals, as well as the two wrecks Numidia and Aida.
The large reef lies south of the Brother Islandsand impresses with intact hard corals and the popular "Clow-fish" City. However, Daedalus has become famous for its legendary hammerhead schools, which guarantee unique dives.
The reef is known for its two plateaus on the north and south side with good chances for hammerhead shark encounters. A frequent visitor among the dive boats is the oceanic white tip shark (Longimanus).
