More than I expected and my hopes were high; I'd take a trip with them in a heart beat.

The diving was amazing and made accessible to all skill levels. We had some divers with 1000s of dives and others with just a handfull. The crew made sure everyone hit the best spots safely but no one was held back. Egpyts deep south blew my mind and the crew made sure I had the best possible experience. It was my third trip to Egypt but my first liveaboard. Now I think theres no other way to hit egypt's dive sites.

Brilliant diving adventure--checked off all the boxes of wants and needs

Nice combination of reef systems and wrecks. Location enabled one to see it all, helping us to check off all the boxes one comes to expect from a perfect adventure. The "Northern Wrecks and Reefs" of the Red Sea offered up some of the most beautiful reef systems and of course, the great wrecks of the Northern Red Sea, including the Cristola, Dunraven and Thistlegorm. Creatures small and large came into our purview: dolphins, octopuses, nudibranches, schools of fishes. Lucky us on this particular week!

Great Dive Guides, amazing diving

An amazing week of diving, the dive guides were top notch and extremely knowledgeable about the Red Sea and marine life. I only wish we could have done more diving, 1/2 the boat did not arrive until very late at night the 1st night and it seems to have set us back a missed dive. Besides this, I would go again but would not chose a deluxe cabin because of being next door to the kitchen which was noisy. I would highly recommend this boat if you are English speaking and want a very safe enjoyable dive experience.

Awesome Reefs & Wrecks Dive over Xmas 2017

The water was a bit cold, being December, so there wasn't a great deal of fish life around, but that didn't matter so much since we were doing the wrecks, which were great. A highlight in the water was snorkeling with a pod of dolphins. A negative on the boat was that although the jacuzzi was operational, it only had cold water in it, a complete disincentive to using it! It would have been great if the water in it had been warm, given the colder weather. Our cabin size was good, but some of the cabins are small, so that's something to keep in mind when booking. Overall for the price, it was a pretty decent liveaboard.

Luxurious experience

This was my 4th liveaboard experience and facility wise, it was the best boat I quality. The boat was spacious, well equipped and the meal was also better than my expectation. Also most diving is conducted in areas where the current is not so strong and the maximum depth is not so deep which makes diving easy and you can stay under the sea longer. Last but not least, all the crew members are very friendly and open to each one of your opinion.

Great Ref Sea Deep South trip

The dive trip to the Deep South of the Red Sea was great, not as choppy as I was told in the past, Marine life is diverse and the coral in winter is in good health. Maybe a bit cold if you are used to tropical waters but good equipment will make it fine. I would advise guided dives as the dive guides are very knowledgable and helped spot many stuff I would not have seen, special thanks to Sylvain, Samira and Hamou for their advice. The crew of Blue Horizon are really great people, always here to help before and after the dives, the food was also fantastic. Would come back again definitely

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

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.
