Amazing trip on a lovely boat with an very nice crew

I just can recommend this trip, boat and crew by heart. Eventhough, the corona virus hit us quite hard in the middle of the trip I would do it again. We were lucky with the professional and very nice crew. Since the entire world was shutting down we needed to be updated all the time so our guide managed us to have some amazing dives (we saw wrecks, swam with a group of dolphins and joined a turtle for here lunch) but still kept us updated how the international situation is changing. The sites are stunning and lots of fish all over. The guidance was very good and the food delicious. You could just feel like home on the boat since it's not one of those big boats where they always have their same program. Here you really can feel, that the crew cares you are enjoying and adapt the program to your wishes. But I specifically want to point out although the general situation got very tensed in Egypt and all over the world our crew organized everything accordance to our needs and were very flexible so we made it back in time.

Great, even when corona shortened the trip

Medhat our diving guide always carefully selected the diving spots and especially the timing of our dives, so we never had to share the dive spots with any other group. Crew was really friendly, great service and great food. Due to the outbreak of the corona virus, we had to shorten our trip, before we all got stranded inside Egypt. Crew was helpful and helped us organising flights and brought us back to Hurghada, so we could call people and book return flights. I definitely come back to finish the trip I started.

Thanks Amelie Alvaro Amieiro.

Supera las expectativas

El contraste de los buceos realizados es tan sorprendente como recomendable. Sin duda estar disfrutando de infinitos jardines de arrecife en una bajada y en otra adentrarte a un enorme pecio del siglo/s pasado/s te transporta a la esencia del buceo y la exploración marina más intensa Tuvimos la suerte que no se completó el barco y con el grupo de buceadores conectamos enseguida, todo salió a pedir de boca, por mi experiencia en vidas a bordo recomiendo grupos reducidos, da más juego sin duda.

Smaller group than expected but great service

There were only 3 of us onboard as customers so we were outnumbered by the instructors and crew! But that meant we got loads of help from the crew and instructors. Very comfortable cabins and beautiful boat that was kept spotlessly clean. Unfortunately we didnt see any big fish or mammals (except a whale shark from the boat) but Nov is not the best season to dive here. Medhat is a brilliant instructor who is always thinking about how to make your dives as comfortable and safe as possible. I did my AOW onboard with him and he was brilliant

Amazing trip all was perfect

We could dive with dolphins! The diving equipment was new and really good, the staff very friendly and professional with briefing before each dive, the food on board was really good, and there is flexibility for the dives depending of what people want to see and weather conditions. It was awsome
