    Wonderful boat, great food and very helpful fellow divers! Daedalus, Sataya, Elphinstone (Marsa Ghalib-Marsa Ghalib), Egypt in September

    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!

    Twice the charm! I booked again and enjoyed it even more! What a wonderful boat! St. Johns, Rocky, Zabargad (Marsa Ghalib-Marsa Ghalib), Egypt in September

    1) Actually, the food is the main reason I’m back on JP Marine and I’m not even one who is fussy when it comes to food! Perhaps it’s because the large presence of French divers who know and like to eat good food, I felt like I was in a fancy restaurant at every meal! Also, talking about personalized service, e.g.; the steward found out that I like double fried eggs with runny yolks and I got this every morning without asking! And they do that for all the guests on a dive boat! Remember that we were not a cruise ship! Also all birthdays, and special occasions are celebrated, with cakes and whole dining filled with intricate food crafting! They make you feel like part of a big family! 2) The sharks were everywhere, not your usually tame reef, white-tipped or nurse sharks in the Caribbean, we are talking about potential man-eater huge Oceanic White Tip, thresher and hammerheads here! Some days they were more elusive than others, but most days, they made their presence known, especially in the deeper dives. Very thrilling! Red Sea have changed me from a diehard macro (little critters on reefs and corals) lover to shark-chaser! Since it is so affordable, I’ll be back on this boat, for sure! Brothers, Daedalus, Elphistone, here I come! 3) Captain, crew and guide are the best! Very knowledgeable and caring, ever pleasant and work so hard! Once when there was an engine problem, the crew did not even sleep until it was properly fixed so our diving was not interrupted! Our dive guide, Malaat, knows the areas like the back of his hands and shows us everything that the Red Sea could offer! Thank You, guys!

    quality matches the price Brothers, Daedalus, Elphinstone (Hurghada-Marsa Ghalib), Egypt in March

    Amazing healthy reefs, several hummers on Daedalus, very calm and warm weather for early March. But: - Very short dive time by the rule of the owner. Most of the dives were 40 minutes only, even if every diver in the group has 100bar in tank. - There was no place for rinsing equipment after safari - Not a major factor but you can't buy alcohol on the boat (even beer), but of course you can buy it in advance on shore - Bad visibility for Egypt (but it's not a fault of vessel or crew of course)

    Good boat but bad timing for a BDE trip. Brothers, Daedalus, Elphinstone (Hurghada-Marsa Ghalib), Egypt in March

    I have seen Red Sea much more colorful and with lots of sharks before, however since this was just the beginning of the season not so many big fish encounters. On the other hand the sea was extremely calm and sun was shining. Pity that we could not make drift dives.

    Selten habe ich einen so professionellen Trip gemacht. Durch und durch gut organisiert mit sieben Nationen an Board. Die Wünsche aller Gäste wurden jederzeit berücksichtigt, so dass jeder voll auf seine Kosten kam. Obendrauf wurde getaucht was der Kompressor hergab und wenn an Board gab es super Essen und excellente Betreuung! Perfekt!
