I was not aware that diving in the Red Sea would be such a bunfight, but having waited by the boats for the dive team to turn up, they handled the organisation so well. Boat and staff and lunch (in particular!) were just great. Hana, a superb dive instructor. All in all, very impressed. Shame the water was so cold!!

I completed the PADI Nitrox course with Tracey and did 4 days diving. The team are very professional, very helpful, they are very knowledgable and are always ready to help. The boat crew are also very good and assist with kitting up etc. I had a fantastic introduction to the wonders of the Red Sea.
