Friendly crew and great service

It was my first liveaboard and I'm glad it was with King Snefro Fleet. All crew members were very friendly and nice but I have to shout out to the 2 Dive Guides (Mustafa & Peter). Both were very professional, friendly, and happy to help and support us whenever we needed them. All briefings before our dives were very easy to understand thanks to them. I don't have a single bad thing to say about the service, boat and crew. 5 stars to all of them. Thank you, King Snefro Fleet. Your crew were unbelievable.

Great crew and amazing diving!

The perfect organization and professionalism of both instructors as well as the entire staff, who were extremely friendly and helpful, was the highlight of our trip. The common spaces and rooms were always kept impeccably clean, the food options were numerous and delicious and the choice of diving spots was always spot on! I highly recommend King Snefro Pearl and will definitely use it again for future diving trips! I also loved that they're a member of Green Fins and try to save single use plastic, where possible! Joseph, with his kindness, was always attentive during meals and ensured everything was in order. Also, special thanks to the Captain and the team responsible for our diving equipment for keeping everything well-maintained. My only suggestion, which the staff also recommended, is to completely avoid using single-use plastic bottles and ask guests to refill their water bottles from the large water jug.

Exeptional all round mini safari, highly recommended

This mini safari covered so much of what we wanted. 11 dives in total, 4 dives including a night dive on day 1 and 2, final day 3 dives. The 4 dives (including a night dive) on Thistlegorm was our highlight, June seemed very quite and we were lucky to have the wreck to ourselves. Dunraven, Ros Mohamed, sharks and Yolanda Reef were the best, full of marine life. Couldn't fault any area of this trip, the boat, staff, accommodation, dive guides and dive sites were 5*. Highly recommended

Dive Guides were very experienced and gave great detailed briefings. The boat was kept exceptionally clean, all wet areas were dried down after each dive. Loved that the boat only held maximum of 12 divers, made the trip more personal.

Awesome diving safari!

I greatly appreciated the organization and professionalism of both instructors, Samuel and Mustafa, as well as the entire staff, who were extremely friendly and polite.

Just a very professional job well done

In general, it was well organised/professional diving or Liveaboard experience. The crew went out of their way to assist always and the people were really sweet. The instructors gave thorough briefings and had unbelievable patience. Great dive sites however lacking lacking in much big fish activity that may wow some divers. I guess you’re at the mercy of the season/time/conditions, and so on. Egypt’s laws make it a bit less alcohol friendly. This has nothing to do with the boat as they offer beer at a cost. Some other places like the Bahamas is a bit more beer social in the evenings, but like I said, this has nothing to do with the boat itself. For me it was definitely more diving vibes in that respect. Thanks for everything guys!
