Additionally, a smaller sun deck near the captain's bridge and a covered deck in front of the salon provide perfect spots for relaxation between dives. The diving facilities include a large deck for gearing up, two hand-held showers for post-dive rinses, and a direct-access bathroom with a shower.

Amazingly catered, cleaned, and prepared (snacks and medical supplies incl.) Hungarian owned, Egyptian operated boat.

We took the BDE route where the night dives were incredible, where we saw Spanish dancers, lion fish, and millions of fish light up the ‘sky’. During the day, we also saw groups of hammerhead sharks (on the reef and in the blue) and countless types of fish and coral in both the reef areas and the coral gardens.

The staff were all very helpful, kind, and knowledgeable in their own fields. The food was great, tasty, and healthy and clean. The dive sights and guides were phenomenal, exercising a great level of safety not at the cost the experience.
