Shark season is now May through June and only one shark was observed in the first week of November diving all the way to the far south.

Nice people we met on board and the excellent one on one dive guide experience my partner had.

Blue Horizon went the extra mile when i was in trouble

I was ill with a non-diving medical emergency and the Blue Horizon team on the boat and back at base really looked after me, getting me to and from hospital and doing all the hospital liaison. I want to thank everyone who looked after me in a challenging situation and look forward to booking again and actually diving with the team next time!

Unfortunately, we received the master cabin #2 right next to the kitchen. Due to the heat that came from the kitchen our room could not be cooled down properly. This left a bitter taste in our mouth d

Amazing coral life in southern red sea. Due to the extra hot weather we did not have encounters with big fishes.

Beautiful dive boat

This was my third trip on Blue Horizon & sixth trip with Blue O'Two. The boat is everything you would want for a week away diving, spacious & nicely set up cabins, nice saloon area for meals, the upstairs lounge is a great place to relax, the dive deck is set out perfectly for a large group of divers to never feel crowded. The crew are excellent & ensure you have a great trip. The little extra touches are nice such as plenty of towels in the cabin, a toweling poncho for after dives to keep you warm, afternoon snacks after the third dive. The hot chocolate when you come up from the afternoon dive is a very welcome! I would recommend Blue Horizon to anyone considering a week of diving in the Red Sea.

Good boat but getting tired now

I believe the boat is going in to dry dock for a needed refresh Boat crew are great, diving team are more in to the "follow me" rather than let people do their own diving If you've been on Bo2 before then there are quite a few changes, e.g. soft drinks charged for etc The boat running out of coffee, popcorm etc on the first full day out of port was a big black mark though

Boat crew are fantastic, still great food and comfort is pretty decenet
