Despite the cold weather, the warmth of the crew and guides made it a memorable experience.

The great red sea with it's colourful reef coral always leaves an unforgetable memory. Egyptian hospitality through the crew and the guides was positively overwhelming, the boat is in perfect condition, every aspect of our comfort was accounted for. The diving was great, the beautiful red sea coral gardens and reefs is like no other. I would like to thank the crew and the guides for the great time we had on the boat and diving.

Beautiful corals and unique wrecks

The dives themselves were excellent, although some of the dive sites (wrecks in particular) had too much traffic and became inconvenient and perhaps even dangerous at times. With a total of 24 guests, life onboard was a little tight, and the rooms somewhat small. Food and drinks were ok, but nothing special for vegetarian/vegan fares. Staff was friendly and helpful, guides were professional, the pace of the trip was reasonable, overall a worthwhile experience.

Very varied dives (wrecks, corals, nightdiving, etc.), great visibility, good service by staff
