Djibouti and whale sharks – 7 Brothers and Gulf of Tadjoura
During this fantastic itinerary, it will be possible to dive both in the islands of the Seven Brothers and in the Gulf of Tadjoura (whale sharks). The Seven Brothers also called the Sawabi are one of the highlights of Djibouti scuba diving. The archipelago itself is a chain of six volcanic islands, the "seventh brother" is not an island but a volcanic hill at the northern tip of Ras Siyyan. The islands are located near the Bab El-Mandeb Strait, just south of the entrance to the Red Sea. These uninhabited islands are connected by an amazing barrier here in fact you can admire wonderful coral gardens and there are large numbers and larger pelagic species such as giant trevally, manta rays, mobules, snappers and many others. From mid-October to February, plankton blooms in the bay of the Gulf of Tadjoura and although whale sharks can be seen year-round during this period, encounters can be plentiful and these nutrient-rich waters attract many pelagic species to the surrounding Djibouti area. . Recent research has recognized the bay's particular importance in the development of juvenile whale sharks, which remain within the safe confines of Djibouti Bay.
