Hurghada with Blue

A fantastic voyage down the Red Sea. Thistlegorn is always a treasure. The sea is filled with nature. A glimpse of a shark, the sights of a fan ray, turtles enjoying their day, beautiful reefs and a fantastic guide showing it all to us.Extremely professional boat and crew.

Blue Heaven

First the off the boat and crew are top notch, anything you wanted or needed they did for you immediately. The diving itself was amazing but challenging, but as is usually the case it was also well worth the effort. We saw Hammerhead Sharks in a school of 15-20 and it was up close and an amazing experience. Going to the lighthouse on Daedalus Island was a nice break from being on the water. The kitchen staff and the food were both amazing, but the best part was the dive guides who kept you well informed and safe at all times. They also know all the best places to dive for the big stuff which needless to say is very helpful. Lastly we were fortunate to have a very friendly group of people (friends now) who helped make the trip even more enjoyable. I highly recommend this boat and crew as well as blue planet Liveaboard’s we will definitely be going back.

Fantastic Experience!!

Silky and oceanic whit tip sharks, beautiful healthy reefs full of colours and live. On the boat everything was great but the rooftop dinner really stood out. Our first time on a liveaboard but this has certainly exceeded expectations and we'll be back with the Blue Planet group!

Fantastic crew, every single one on board was extremely friendly and helpful. They truly cared about making sure all guests ans staff are having the best possible time. The boat was in great condition and the crew made sure it stays that way. Lastly the itinerary (Brothers, Daedalus, Elphinstone) was very well chosen and the dive guides had excellent knowledge about the sites and showed the highest level of professionalism.

Blue dive

Everything went fine, no problems, no uncertainties. The only, albeit minor, issue was wifi connection. I'd recommend this vessel and its crew, and hope one day I come back.

This adventure on Blue was my first Liveaboard experience and it was simply stupendous!

When I stepped aboard for the first time, it became evident that Blue is a well-run, well-maintained vessel with a happy crew. Every detail, from the food, the sleeping quarters, the dive deck, etc., was meticulously attended to. I found the actual diving magical during the entire trip. Our dive guides were terrific. Everyone on the crew worked hard to ensure the Blue Liveaboard experience was second to none. There is nothing I observed that I thought could have been done better. I had a wonderful time during this entire dive trip and will definitely sail on Blue again! Bravo Blue!

Safety of the divers, crew and ship is paramount. Blue is well maintained and spotless. The diving and the dive guides were fabulous. I made new friends, some of whom I'm sure will be lifelong friends.
