Just exquisite!

The whole trip just came so nicely together, the route, the people, and the wildlife. I never dived with big sharks before, and was a bit anxious about this, but when first one, and on next dive two curious Longimanos appeared, the guide was right next to me, keeping an eye on everything, so I could enjoy watching these large creatures. Thanks for many (17) great dives!

По отношению к гостям это была лучшая яхта из тех 5, на которых я отдыхал на Дайвинг Сафари в Египте

Это было время, когда из-за эпидемии короны у людей возникли проблемы с вылетом назад и команда по своей инициативе сделала намного больше, чем в принципе должна была делать и все бесплатно

Super Service, super Tauchgänge

Es ist ein Boot mit 20Gäste Kapazität. Nicht zu viele Leute was schön war. Crew und Service waren exzellent. Tauchguides beide entspannt, erfahren und relaxed. Ich habe spontan kurz vor der Safari gebucht und war mehr als zufrieden. Ich kann die golden dolphin 1 uneingeschränkt empfehlen. Natürlich auch die Südtour, super war genau nach meinem Geschmack alles dabei
