Amazing liveaboard for a great deal!

This boat was great to stay on! It was spacious and beautiful with a great diving deck. The food was okay, though it didn't vary much. The price was unbeatable! My only complaint was that we dove places where you can do day trips from EVERY day. If you only want to do 2 to 3 dives a day and live in comfort in a hotel this may not be worth it.

Budget Liveaboard- You get what you pay for.

Diving the Red Sea is Beautiful. The boat only has one Divemaster. The rest of the crew were locals - which is amazing, however if there was an emergency only one person in the entire crew could communicate with the divers-which was the dive master. Everyone was very nice, polite and made sure to the best of their ability we had what we needed. The gearing up after the brief was rushed. The Dive jumps were rushed. This in my opinion led to a lost diver situation-he was found, and having to end a dive early because of this on one of the trips most important dives. Also the liveaboard when booked, the trip advertised for thistlegorm- one of the top dives in the world, and then was removed from the schedule without notifying the customers. This might have changed our decision to continue with the trip. Overall the diving was beautiful and the crew was very nice and accommodating. Aside from what is mentioned this liveaboard brought us to some amazing reefs.

Great time on the boat

We saw so many things! Our Dive guide made sure we saw as many cool things as possible and went out of his way to make sure we were happy with our diving. The crew on the boat was very attentive to our needs and helped us get ready to dive and also when we got back in. Waited with hot tea after a night dive... that kind of super friendly and helpful stuff. We were very satisfied with our live aboard. Will recommend it to friends.

Small with good service

Having a diving centred vacation was a first for me. The good dive guide and the helpful staff made it a nice vacation. The accommodations are rather simple, small bed, small bathroom with toilet and shower at the same spot. Not a lot of space for anything. But it was cleaned very often (even between the dives) and the crew made an effort to make it a nice stay on board. In the end its about value, and I think the value for price is good.

Amazing Trip. Will definitely do it again.

The wrecks were just amazing. Beautiful. The dive guides were perfect, they knew when to jump in the water and where to go (along with the captain’s approval). The Thistlegorm is probably the most dived wreck in the world, and there was too many boats at the dive site, but our guides gave us four full dives of the Thistlegorm alone, with no one around, just because they chose the right timings. The Crew were amazing, making sure we were comfortable with everything. The food was great. Our cabins were cleaned during every dive, which is more that what you can ask for. Tea and coffee service were always there. Nothing was missing. And finally our group was great and had great diving experience, which made our dives great and basically we could dive any site we are at. I know this is not something anyone can ensure, but we were lucky.

January is low season, temperatures were fresh but the upside was that none of the dive sites were crowded. Visibility in the Red Sea was great. Some of the most beautiful corals I've seen. Dive sides varied, making for a full experience. The Thistlegorm wreck is very impressive.

2 of us and 6 crew

Coral reef and carpet of marine life was amazing. Dive wreck was unreal, only 2 of us for 4 dives on the Thisstlegorm. The boat boys were great, really nice people who can’t do enough for you. My only reservation is that our dive guide blew hot and cold with me and my friend. In his defence he has done the job for 20 years and his experience of the sites was fantastic. He navigates you around effortlessly like he is taking you around the streets where he grew up. If I am honest though he can be quite rude at times, he told my friend off for saying “wow that’s great” during a briefing which was extremely rude and made it feel awkward. He didn’t really seem very happy most of the time and was just going through the motions. He didn’t really ask us if we enjoyed it - as soon as we got out of the water he would go off on his own and not come back until the next dive briefing. Me and my friend are very experienced instructors and both felt that he could put a little more energy into his trips to ensure his passengers have a great time.
