Worth it for the hammerheads!

Schooling hammerheads! I didn't expect to see them but we got them several times. And 1 time all to ourselves, I was surrounded by them just 1m away, amazing. Oceanic whitetip too, guitar shark, eagle ray, octopus. Loads of cool stuff. The general walls were disappointing though, not much going on there

Great trip, really recommended

All the crew was very nice and always ready to help. The schedule was very balanced allowing us to enjoy diving as well as having rest on the sundeck. The food was great and the cook did great job to serve variety of dishes. Thanks to guides we could enjoy great dives with sharks and we had option to dive alone whenever it was possible. Always felt safe and could relay on them. Really recommended for everyone who wants to see underwater wonders of red see :)

Very enjoyable Red Sea Safari

Food on-board was very good, excellent dive guides prioritised safety and generally were very helpful and considerate throughout. Boat overall was comfortable and had a lovely relaxed feel all week. The only minor criticism I can make is they have no library on board apart from fish ID books - so take plenty of reading, and the seating on the open deck was not very comfortable for me. Overall a very enjoyable trip and I we will certainly be booking onto a Discovery liveaboard again

Awesome week on Samira

We were lucky enough to have the entire boat for a group of 8 only which made it extra nice. Diving was good and Ahmed was a great guide with perfect sense of humor. Crew on dive deck were super helpful always helping with the gear and wetsuits. Food was plentiful and absolutely delicious. We also got to do few unguided dives which was a great experience! Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to dive in Red Sea. Thank you
