So many friendly and helpful people, I will certainly come back!

I’ve had the most amazing time with Dive Pro Liveaboard on M/Y Tillis! Started from the first day when I got picked up at the airport by Zizo who was very reliable and friendly. He showed me the dive shop and then brought me to the boat where I got my room, the first briefing and all equipment that I rented from them (everything was of good quality). Since the boat was not full, they all put us in alone in a room which was great. On the first day we had two easy dives in order for everyone to get used to being in the water again and to build groups and buddy teams. Each group was guided by an instructor (Ali or Alaa) during the whole week so we never dived alone which made us feel very safe, especially for the wreck dives. For each dive site the dive guides had special maps and pictures they showed us in the briefing to show us the position of the wrecks/corals including depths and some historical facts. Both Ali and Alaa knew the dive sites well and were very experienced. They handled different levels of diving very well which made it easy for us to adapt to each other. The whole crew was amazing. There was always more than one crew member ready to help us get dressed before the dive and carry everything back in place after the dives. As soon as we got out of the water fruit juice and snacks were served. Rooms were cleaned every day and fresh towels availably when needed. Food was amazing as well and there was always more than enough for everyone. The chef even made a special cake because one couple was celebrating their wedding anniversary. On the last day we all got to meet the owner of Dive Pro who spent the whole day with us and invited us for an amazing seafood lunch and tea. He even gave me a lift to my hotel in the evening and the next day he drove me to the airport. So many friendly and helpful people, I will certainly come back! 😊

A memorable experience

This was my first experience in a Liveaboard and in the Red Sea. This trip filled my expectations and went a bit beyond out of the fact we were only 10 divers — which allowed us to have a cabin for ourselves and dives in small groups. The dives were made in two groups comprised of 4 and 6 divers plus one guide each. This made the dives more relaxed as they were not very crowded and easier to keep an eye on each other. The dive sites were obviously very nice being the Brothers Islands, Ras Mohamed, Chrisoula K and Thistlegorm wrecks among my favourite. The crew was very friendly and helpful. When getting in and out of the water there were always someone to aid. Sometimes I was afraid to get badly used by having so much help with putting my suit on/off, taking my fins, carrying my gear and so on. The meals were delicious, plenty and on time. Service on the saloon was flawless. The trip got much more enjoyable as the other divers, which I knew none, happened to be diverse and very friendly.

The route, which is very nice and well-balanced between marine life and wrecks. The friendly crew, who made eating, diving and sleeping possible. The other divers — even being a matter of luck as I didn't knew anyone — they made the trip much more enjoyable.

Best Liveaboard in the Red Sea

The crew was amazing, all of them from the dive guide to the responsable of equipment, chefs, captain, owner of the boat... very friendly people and always here to help. The itinerary was so good. I did the North Route but we still took time to visit The Brothers which is more considered South. We saw 5 types of different Sharks!! That was amazing. Briefing were efficient, a TV shows you the details of the dives you’ll be doing with details of the wrecks and very nice maps. Also, the crew provided really nice books on the wrecks and marine life to help get more information on the visited sites. The price of the safari is really good, for a high class boat with a very professional crew. I recommand it 100% !

Great diving, great crew, great group to dive with

Boat was very nice and comfortable, Diving was spectacular. I went on the trip as a single and only eight other divers. All the other divers were great, one couple from the U. K, another couple from Spain, a man an his 14 year old son and two other single. Everyone got along just great. Crew was wonderful. The dive guides were very helpful and I budded up with them on most dives. Would highly recommend the Tillis and DivePro for a great trip.

Great experience, I'll go again

It was my first liveaboard trip and I loved it. The crew was very professional and hard working. There was always someone nearby to help when putting on the dive equipment or getting out of the water. Food was good and plenty. Also there was always a choice of fruits, snacks and soft drinks available. We were total 9 customers, so there was plenty space on the boat for us. 2 guides, 1 mainly did the courses and 1 was guiding the other buddy groups. Only criticism from my side is that I sometimes felt we went through the divesites too quickly. I prefer slow dives, tend to see more things then. Rental equipment seemed OK (I had my own gear). When something was not working properly, it got replaced immediately. My favourite divesites on this trip are Ras Mohammed and the Brothers. Also the wreck of the Salem express with it's very sad story was an experience I would not want to miss. Of course the wreck of the Thistlegorm is another highlight. I definitely recommend this boat, crew and trip. Thanks to all.

I had a great time on the Tillis. All the crew was very professional and positive during the whole trip. The diving was excellent and the guides were very knowledgeable. The boat was very comfortable and had ample areas for lounging between dives in both the shade and the sun. The food was excellent! I'd book a trip on the Tillis again!

The trip was incredible, from beginning to the end everything worked out perfectly and the organisation and friendliness of the staff was top!!

For my girlfriend and me the whole trip was a highlight! But to specify, everything worked out from the pick up to the transfer back to the airport. The complete crew was extremly helpful and nice, always ready for a joke!! and the owner of the whole company (DiveProLiveAboard) joined us on the trip. A very open, sociable and nice guy!! He even gave us a little car ride through Hurghada and invited us for the best Fallafel in town! I could go on with compliments and personal experiences, but you'll just have to experience it yourself! I guarantee you won't regret it!

I had a great week!

This was my first liveaboard and I loved it. The dives were great, and also the crew was very helpful with... everything. Quality of the food was very good, and there was plenty at every moment of the day. If it wasn't time for a meal, there were snacks. The divesites were adjusted to the level of the divers on board, and whe were every time given the choice to go diving on our own, or following a guide. The owner, Ali, was joining the Safari, is a very warm person, who makes everyone feel welcome. I will definitely come back and do another trip with the Tillis, or one of the other ships. Highly recommend!

Tillis simply rocks: amazing Deep South trip in a wonderful Liveaboard!

The dive sites were absolutely amazing, and thanks to the Liveaboard crew (from captain to diving guides, instructors, divemasters, chef, and all rest of the crew) we were able to make the most of it, through impeccable briefings, very well planned dives, four dives per day, excellent docking, good food (accommodating different needs and restrictions), very comfortable cabins, excellent common spaces for relaxing or sunbathing. We always felt safe, with full control by the crew on diving conditions (when needed we used zodiacs for initiating drift dives). It is hard to find negative things, besides the fact that it was too short...!!! One week is not enough, so we will definitely go back!

Amazing time! Awesome crew! The dolphins!! ❤️

I had a wonderful experience on The Tillis, the owner Ali and I have become great friends; he took me out to see the city of Hurghada and have a night on the town before we embarked, and invited me to his home for dinner with his family when we arrived back in port. He also has an extensive dive shop, where I purchased a ton of new and amazing equipment that I have since used on my trip to Egypt, as well as at home in Hawaii, and while on another dive trip in Mexico. His crew were amazing and made me feel like one of the family during my stay. I was given the largest cabin at no extra charge, and diving nitrox at no extra charge for every dive was also a much appreciated bonus! I earned both my wreck diving and deep diver speaciality certifications during my 8 day stay. The instructors were both very knowledgeable and fun to dive and hangout with. I highly recommend The Tillis, and it’s crew to anyone interested in diving the Red Sea, as it was an absolutely unforgettable experience! Also, THE FOOD!! Wow!! Incredible!! I was trying to lose weight during my trip, but I think I did the opposite as it was far too good to resist!! I already have plans to visit them again in September!!

It was a great week onboard the Tillis Boat!!

Major highlights - Hamerhead/Thresher shark and Brothers dive site. Although the weather was not what I was expecting, the crew did all they could to make the experience second to none. We had to change the itinerary and only had the chance to experience one of the southern dive sites which was absolutely fantastic! During the week, it was my birthday and the crew took extra special care to give me a great celebration - streamers/balloons, special dinner, and a wonderful birthday cake! I would definitely go on the Tillis again....but only to the very very south of the Red Sea!!
