Amazing 10 days trip in North Red Sea

We liked Aphrodite during our 10 days dive safari in North Red sea. Our dive guide was very helpful, polite, attentive and well prepared and knowledgeable about the dive sites. The food was fantastic, every day there was seafood offered with our meals. The quality of the chef overran all expectations you can have on a liveaboard. We were quite lucky as we had more than 40 minutes dive with dolphins that were very playful with us. All in all I recommend Aphrodite to everyone who wants to indulge in a fantastic dive safari in North Red sea.

Beautiful boat and very nice crew

We spent one week on the Aphrodite, made the south tour. It was a great week. The staff on the boat is super friendly and helpful. The boat itself is amazing. And of course diving was nice, with two professional dive guides. We really enjoyed the trip with the Aphrodite.

Great first Liveaboard experience

Outstanding crew including guides. Felt like privileged guest. Diving: mostly from Zodiak, which is great. Hammerhead, grey reef shark and whale shark at brothers, hammerhead school and Thresher shark at Daedalus, big turtles, Spanish dancer, Salem Express, too much to name. Other guest were great fun.

The crew including guides were outstanding. The diving was exceptional, aided by frequent Zodiac use. Whole trip was just a pleasure.

Fabulous first experience on a live-a-board safari. Will do one again!!

- the companionship made aboard, seeing sharks at Brothers, being spoiled by the crew for meals and dive preparation.

Amazing boat, crew and diving!

One week trip to the Brother's Islands with some modification based on weather changes that worked out well. Crew really went out of their way to ensure they could do everything possible including getting special milk for my wife and provided modified meals for people with any requests. Boat is quite nice with mix of covered areas, sun decks, in/outdoors etc. Diving was easily handled off the back of the large deck or with tenders. They arranged all rental equipment for us beforehand and made changes as needed. They provided the option of guided dives with instructor or independent diving with partner after briefing etc. Diving was excellent with good vis, coral, fish etc!

excellente semaine

dommage que vous ne posiez pas de question sur les point faibles: maintenance du bateau, un moteur en panne qui nous a empêché d'aller à John's reef, un des zodiacs en panne
