Disappointing Experience

I recommend NOT booking with JP Marine. The guides were rude and disengaged. The rental equipment was old and in poor condition. Several people on our trip were booked on JP Marine, but we were moved to a worse boat called CU for invented reasons at the last minute. The transfer from Hurghada and back was particularly bad. And basic facilities were missing - like outdoor showers.

Fun and well-organized trip to some beautiful dive-sites

Diving the underwater maze at "Claudio" amongst other beautiful dive spots. Having excellent and varying food for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Enjoying the time in between dives in the bean bags on the sundeck.

Fantastic ship and crew and great diving

Diving with dolphins Thistlegorm was brilliant The number of dives we got to do which was above what was expected and the effort put in by the crew to ensure we were able to dive the best sites at the best times Food was also amazing, crew went out of their way to cater to my dietary restrictions which was not expected but very much appreciated Cabin was spacious enough and had plenty of storage, with daily cleaning. Also loads of space on the two upper decks to chill between dives and dry gear etc

El buceo y la buena onda de la tripulación y los guías que fueron "above and beyond" para cumplir nuetsras expectativas! El barco en si es espectacular, las cabinas son un poco calurosas (y por momentos en las de subsuelo se siente cierto olor a combustible/aceite), pero como se puede dormir en el deck superior al aire libre no hay problema! Gran experiencia!!!
