Shark Week!

I booked Tillis but got upgraded to the same company's boat, Sea Story (which if you have the extra $ is SO worth it to book). The BDE route was epic and is not to be missed by any shark lovers. The service staff and dive support staff were very helpful and friendly, and they worked very hard to ensure everyone had a great experience. The food was good and fairly varied, but hot vegetarian options often lacked. The dive guides worked hard to try and show us the greatest sites and of course the most sharks!

Amazing staff and good food

It was our first liveaboard experience. So we did not what to expect. And for example we were disappointed about the first diving day because it was easy dive with nothing extraordinary to see. But we understood that it was a check of our diving experience and a reminder howto get out and get in a zodiacs with all equipment. I’m glad about it because the following days, the sea was not so calm. We succeeded to see some sharks, manta ray, turtle, lots of fish. The only concern I might say is the fuel smelling on the boat. Unfortunately we were only be able to get the bottom room, but even on the second level (rest space) we were able to smell it. I still recommend this experience if you never dived in the Red Sea.

Inspiring trip

We had a very nice time being on a unique trip. However two things should be considered. You heard about the garbage issue. For us it feels very bad, we pay park fees, and then to see that our garbage is being thrown in the Red Sea makes us very sad. This is not what we registered for. Their should be more involvement of Liveaboard on this matter. Especially countries as Egypt who lives on tourism, should be informed properly about awareness. This is something your organisation should stand for. You cannot let Egyptian people organise things without a close overview, because they will take advantage. Then there was the tipping at the end of the trip. For us, it felt as an obligation, they even asked why we didn't give a tip. Friendliness to get tips, gave us a bad feeling, especially at the end of the trip, which is not nice. Please inform better on this matter.

fantastic trip with fantastic people

The sighting of the sharks, although not so many, very nice Also the nice atmosphere with the other divers and crew I would also like to mention for every diver on every liveaboard that you have to emphasize to both divers and local crew that NO GARBAGE should be thrown in the ocean, zero tolerance on that! Both divers and crew should really care for the ocean, we are its ambassador!
