Excellent Experience

The shipwrecks were totally awesome to go through. I was worried about dive safety, but the dive masters were experienced, caring, and adhered to the safety standards of diving. The price of the experience was well worth it. Definitely a return to the Red Sea and a Blue Planet dive boat will occur again for me.

1. Dive master safety concern for all divers of all levels. 2. Crew efficiency, attention to detail and guest care ( They never stop !!). 3. Planning logistics daily to get 4 dives in many days..but with sufficient surface time.

Varied dive trip

Diving the Thistlegorm was amazing, as were some of the other wrecks - really nice variety of sites with lots of nice condition reefs as well. Visibility wasn't amazing but good enough. The dive guides worked hard to fit in 4 dives on as many days as possible, which was great but that did make for a pretty challenging schedule: wake up call was 5.30am, supper not served until after the night dive, so 9pm at the earliest. I had to sleep after both the morning dives, sometimes the afternoon one too! The crew were friendly and helpful. Only downside was that several smoked and also listened out loud to their phones on the deck which was slightly annoying at times. Food was varied and fresh with plenty of nutritious options as well as treats, and lots of it! Delicious juices after each dive. Overall a challenging but really good week (NB was my first experience of a live-aboard so others may have found it much easier).

It was all an incredible experience and every single dive yielded something new! It's so hard to pick a standout but if I had to then I'd say the spontaneous 30 min dive with two adult and two juveniles Dolphins on route the the Giannis D, the school of 30 + Lion fish on the exit of the Ulysses or out into the Blue from the wall at Ras Mohammed, all of it! Diving aside the highpoint were the folks we met and the warmth, expertise and hospitality of the guides and crew.
