Excellent trip and overall experience

The boat was lovely to relax on for a week. The dive guide was well informed and flexible. He took us to some of the best wrecks and reefs I have ever gone diving. Finally, the crew was wonderful. They took great care of us, with good food, clean cabins, and just wonderful people.

We were picked up at Hurghada airport and taken to Bluepearl. We were warmly received by the crew. Everything was very uncomplicated. The diving guides "Nemo" and "Maradona" have everything to meet our wishes. We did very nice dives at the Brothers Islands and the Ras Muhamed. Also many thanks to We will definitely be back

Familiar and friendly cruise in the red sea

Blue Planet 1 is a serious company that organizes extraordinary cruises. From the very first moment, I felt that the dive guide took the dives very seriously and respected the safety rules. You feel safe during the dives. The dives were very easy with a depth not exceeding 35m. However, you need to be autonomous to fully enjoy them and not be dependent on the dive guide full time. BluePlanet takes you to the most beautiful spots, avoiding other cruises and daily excursions. You are sometimes alone in the red sea :) I will definitely come back with them. Next time South !
