Mohamed and the entire crew were absolutely outstanding in their attention to everyone on board.

Diving the Thistlegorm has been a bucket list dive for a number of years, and it certainly did not disappoint, I only wish we could have dived it a couple more times to really appreciate it, but I guess there’s nothing stopping us from doing it again.

Recommended for
Great dive locations, outstanding Chef ( and pastry chef), all planning including dive briefs were perfectly clear, and all of the plans laid out were stuck to.

Excellent liveaboard experience.

Dolphins, SS Thistlegorm and many other wrecks, marine life and coral reefs as far as the eye can see. The snacks were excellent, crew did an great job during briefings, when diving narrow passages, and helping with gear. Always felt 100% safe and in good hands.

Outstanding week with great dives and 1st class dive guides and crew!

Night dive penetration on the Thistlegorm, snorkelling with Dolphins, full penetration inside the Ghannis D and to be able to pay our respects to the lost souls on the Salam Express. Food was amazing and lots of it! Crew went over and above to ensure our trip was great and we dived many wrecks during the week!

Attentive, able crew through out the ship made diving, eating and sleeping asmothly flowing delight.

Shallower dives focused on coral and sea life. Supportive, caring dive crew on the dive deck and in the water. Meal times with good food well served and engaging conversations.

1. Engaging, enjoyable diving companions, 2. Well trained and attentive crew, 3. More well prepard and served food than any diver should eat.

Excellent diving in the northern red sea

I dove from the Red Sea Aggressor II in July 2021 and June 2023. On both occasions my experience with the boat and crew were very good. The boat is spacious, has nice cabins and all facilities one would need. As a person traveling with an underwater camera I also noted that the rinse bins are large, the camera tables are large and you can easily dry your camera. The food onboard was good. Finally, Adel and Mohammed are very good dive guides. Diligent in their briefings and excellent in their courses (I did the deep dive course with Adel, which was perfect). The only downsides are group sizes (which seems to be standard in Egypt) and that the price shown on liveaboard does not include all fees (such as port fees, national park fees, etc which are quite a lot).

Recommended for
High quality boat, good facilities for underwater cameras and good briefings
