Very good diveguide, dives and food.

The fact that divesites were chosen where nobody else goes. This was our 3rd trip to the deep South and St. John's area and there was only 1 divesite we've already been to. We had a lot of fun with the crew, they made our trip become excellent.

Best diving I’ve ever done

The guide, Peter, had so much knowledge about the different sites and animals that lived there. Thanks to him, and a fair share of luck, we found so much amazing marine life. The crew is always joking around and they are very helpful. The food was almost too amazing, the chef really puts a lot of effort into every meal and it definitively pays off. Such a great liveaboard for a good price! Will absolutely be back.

Beautiful dives from the JP Marine

The JP Marine is my fist liveaboard, so I cannot compare it, but I am very happy with the experience. The crew is super friendly, the dives were beautiful and we saw dolphins, oceanic whitetips, a hammerhead, manta's and amazing reefs. Do note that the dives are not easy; zodiac negative entries, deep (40m), current, sharks, etc. so only for experienced divers.

good diving, horrifying transfer to / from airport

Nearly missing my flight back home as the transfer bus only arrived 40 min before the scheduled departure in the airport, caused by a lack of care and sence of pro active thinking by the driver an vessel crew.

Wonderful boat, great food and very helpful fellow divers!

1) Pelagic, pelagic, pelagic…sharks everywhere: many Longimanus, some right next to the ‘JP Marine’! Scary---can you imagine jumping right into the ocean and encounter a 10-ft.long shark literally face-to-face?!! Though they seem to be more interested in our bubbles than anything else…thank goodness! Even saw a hammerhead way below once. Saw lots of fat tuna, school of dolphins, and even a dugong (sea cow) while snorkeling. 2) ‘JP Marine’ is mainly a liveaboard chartered by a group of avid French + Belgian mature divers who know the area inside out as they’ve dove up and down the Red Sea, some for 35+ years! Esp. if you could converse in French, you could pick their brain for all kind of tips and knowledge of the area! Even me here with no French , I still made friends with them and learnt from them as they are very friendly and most willing to share their immense knowhow of the marine life there! They even made a very professional video, chronicling the Sept. dive trip and sent it to me! I’d love to dive with those guys again! 3) The food is the best of the all the many liveboards I’ve gone to in the world! The young Nubian chef cooks like a 5-star hotel chef---every meal! (I think I actually gained weight after that liveaboard even though I was diving like a maniac daily there! 4) The crew work very hard! They are away from their families who live in other part of Egypt and only get to see them like once every 3-4 months! They bend over backward to help us and keep the boat running in tip top shape. There is the master mechanic on the boat, Ahmed, who could fix anything and often repairs whatever us divers broke during our many dives. The crew deserve a big raise!

Ci svegliavano con gentilezza e avevamo sempre a disposizione degli snack. Elias,la mia guida privata,era sempre presente quando ne avevo bisogno perché sono andicappato e mi lasciava molta libertà. Sono stato "viziato" dallo staff e dalle guida delle immesioni. Grazie mille a tutti
