Friendly staff, great dives, decent accommodation and poor vegetarian options for food

Was able to switch cabins when my cabin partner turned out to snore, and was able to switch to nitric halfway through, both of which were accommodating of them The cabins are fine, not fantastic but they work The vegetarian options weren’t great on the food, but the meat eaters said good things about the meat The dive sites could have been a little more varied towards the end but there was good variation in the beginning and we did have many truly amazing dives Crew were all extremely friendly and keen to make us happy

21 dives on the best Sinai dive sites

Nice boat and good cabins, although the AC on the lower deck can be very noisy. Good food. Good choice of dive sites : the classics, plus more original and less crowded sites. Friendly and competent dive guides, great number of dives per day (21 dives in total, with one night dive each day). Fair prices, although some extras (Nitrox) were more expensive than advertised on Overall, I'd recommend diving with the South Moon!

Recommended for
Good choice of dive sites and competent dive guides ; daily night dive ; fair price for the package.
