Perfect for a week diving the Red Sea

We were lucky that there were only 7 guests so we got a cabin each. The dive guides were flexible to accommodate our requests to do specific sites & also to do more dives on the Thistlegorm.

Great value

Had a great time on the sunshine MV. Fantastic value for money. Food was varied and plentiful. Boat is clean and even though it had 20 divers, it didn’t seem crowded during non diving. Would highly recommend for a cheap week diving Tiran top sites
