Perfect for solo travelers

Good dives - Good experiences with a crew that always makes sure you feel good on board. The boat was not full on this trip, which made it an extra pleasant experience to be on board.

Brilliant first experience of a liveaboard

Beautiful sunsets and sunrises. Diving with dolphins. Wreck diving was excellent, with the opportunity to dive inside the wreck wherever possible. Good dive briefings to enable us to do that.

Recommended for
Excellent quality food and never felt hungry. Number of dives per day - 3/2 on first and last days, otherwise 4 dives per day. Cleanliness of the boat and our cabins.

Shark Week was the best!

The dive sites were absolutely amazing, and thanks to the Liveaboard crew (from captain to diving guides, instructors, divemasters, chef, and all rest of the crew) we were able to make the most of it, through impeccable briefings, very well planned dives, four dives per day, good food (accommodating different needs and restrictions), very comfortable cabins, excellent common spaces for relaxing or sunbathing. We always felt safe, with full control by the crew on diving conditions (when needed we used zodiacs for initiating drift dives). It is hard to find negative things, besides the fact that it was too short...!!! One week is not enough, so we will definitely go back!

Great Diving

Good weather, no currents and plenty to see on almost every dive. The food was really good and they catered for vegetarians. The crew were really helpful, especially when we were preparing to get in the water and again when getting out.

Great wreck and reef dives

Diving sites are awesome, amazing shipwrecks and lots of sea life. Overall experience was very good. One complaint is about smoking on board: while it is theoretically forbidden to smoke outside designated areas, this was not enforced, and many of the crew and passengers smoke in most of the common areas.

Perfect Wrack Trip!

Really wonderfull trip with super-nice divers from england, denmark, brasil, france and germany. Guides and instructors gave us the highlights with Salem Express, Brothers (Aida + Numidia), Abu Nahas (Giannis D!) and of course the full thristlegorm with 4 dives (one night dive). Thank you to the whole team.

I first dove the Thistlegorm in 2002 and have been back numerous times, however this time was THE BEST as we were the only boat on the wreck due to the clever timing/change over days. We had a dolphin play around with us at Shab El Erg. We saw hammerheads too. It was a great mixed itinerary covering the Brothers, Elphinstone and the northern wrecks. A perfect trip!

Recommended for
The dive guides and crew were excellent. The 10 day itinerary was perfect. The whole trip was professional and fun.
