Excellent experience on the Red Sea

It was amazing to see the Red Sea and dive there. The boat was well set up and comfortable. There was plenty of space and the cabin was roomy. The staff on the boat were more like friends and really know what they are doing. I always felt safe and comfortable. As a dive professional myself I’m always thrilled to see safety measures that go above and beyond. One example would be the encouragement of safety stops even when not necessary according to the ERDP.

Great attention, great boat, grate place but no the right time

The best was the great attention we received from everybody, especially from host and cheff. Food quality fantastic with great attention and service. Diving crew was also great and very friendly and made our stay in the Alia a great one. Boat is very nice and cabins are very comfortable. I only have two propositive comments that think are important: BDE Golden Triangle is very famous worldwide as one of the best places in the world for shark encounters with treshers, hammerheads and, especially, longimanus, and this is the reason why we traveled half way around the world to make this itinerary on March 11-18. Unfortunately, we were not lucky and only found an small group of hammerheads in 1 single dive. All the rest were only blue and bubbles. We´ve been diving for many years and we perfectly know that when you are in the ocean there is nothing certain, and that whatever you are looking for may or may not show and we have had our own share of "nothing" and bubbles many times in many places even when we were there at the right time of the year and season and under the best weather conditions. The problem this time is that this trip was made BEFORE shark season even started as we were told at the boat that shark season starts late april - early may. Taking this in consideration, I think that BDE Golden Triangle itinerary should not be made before late April-early May if you really want to have a fair chance to see sharks. If this itinerary is made on early March, it should be pointed out that chances of shark encounters are minimal. I'm sure that if you make this itinerary on May or later you will find many sharks and have an incredible experience, but just don´t make it early March. Finally, Alia´s divemaster attention was poor. In all my diving years and liveaboards is the first time ever that our divemaster didn´t get into the water with us, his clients. Even when we all were autonomous, advanced open water certified, something could go wrong during any dive and the most qualified diver in the group, specially with his/her knowledge of the area where strong currents are the norm, is the divemaster, and the fact that he didn't even got wet in several dives shows his lack of interest for his clients. All and all, I think that if you go at the rigth time of the year, diving will be awsome and that Alia´s crew will make you feel at home.

Best boat in Red Sea

Diving in the south rout of the red sea in Alia was amaizing. The crew are kind and helpful. The quality of the boat is incredible, is a new boat with a lot of spaces, huge zodiacs and common spaces. We had the chance to see hamerhead sharks and manta rays. I will repeat again.

Traumhafte Safarie

Ein rundum perfekter Trip mit der Alia. Ein super eingespieltes Team kümmert sich im.alle Belange. Alle Wünsche werden probiert zu erfüllen. Das Essen war sehr abwechslungsreich und immer sehr lecker. Wir waren auf der BDE Tour und haben alles gesehen was man sehen.kann. Angefangen von Grauhaien über Fuchshaie Hammerhaie und nicht zu vergessen der Longimanus.
