“Pity about the weather”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

Ocean Diva is a beautiful catamaran - well maintained and expertly crewed. Can't fault the staff. We did a 5 hour trip starting at 9, including sandwich lunch and two dive stops.

In my opinion the sea was far too rough for snorkelling but I suppose a cancelled trip causes a financial headache.

My recommendation, get a weather froecast beofre you book. On a warm, calm day it would be blissful

Dear Nelly,

Thank you for your good review on our Ocean Diva day cruise. As we are not a regular snorkeling trip but a sailing experience by an A class certified catamaran with competent crew we are going out in almost any kind of weather condition. When the captain deems it unsafe to leave port we are not hesitating to re-schedule our trip.

Hopefully you had a nice sailing experience and enjoyed the thrill ride.

We are looking forward to welcome you again aboard Ocean Diva during more quiet wind conditions.

Best regards,

Marcel & Wouter

“Force 9 in a 62 foot Catamaran !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013

The day of our trip was overcast and very windy. Luckily we know what the sea can be like and we dressed warmly.
The wind was really blowing a gale - when we stopped I asked the captain how strong the wind had been - gusts up to force 9 ! An amazing vessel and always felt safe even in these conditions.
Look forward to trying it again on a fine sunny day !

Dear Mark,

Thank you for your excellent review on our Ocean Diva day cruise. One thing we cannot control is the weather, however with the A class certification of the boat and our competent crew we can go out under almost any weather conditions. It was for sure a nice sailing experience!

We are looking forward to welcome you again aboard Ocean Diva on a fine sunny day.

Best regards,

“Catamaran trip with Dolphins!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

We had a truly wonderful day, once we'd got over the anxiety of nearly missing the trip, due to the lack of communication from the trip company (they failed to let us know that there was a second, identical catamaran in the adjacent marina, in which our hotel was located, so assumed we knew which catamaran to meet at - make sure you know!). The crew were very friendly and helpful, and kept us refreshed with complimentary soft drinks, provided us with a sandwich lunch, clean towels, goggles, snorkels and fins. There were two stops to allow us a chance to snorkel over lovely reefs, but the highlight was being escorted for half an hour by a pod of at least 16 dolphins - it couldn't have been better. At £33 each it was good vaue for a full day (6 hours) on the high seas. Recommended!

Dear Peevish02,

Thank you for your excellent review on our Ocean Diva Day Cruise. We are sorry for the confusion with the two catamarans, the second one in the new marina left El Gouna and we are operating her now from Port Ghalib, please have a look on our website to find out more details. We are happy you found your way to Ocean Diva 1 and had a great trip including the escort by 16 dolphins!

Looking forward to welcome you aboard Ocean Diva on your next visit to Egypt.

Best regards,

Marcel & Wouter

“The best day :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

Would like to recommend this! We had a great outing with the catamaran and with good wind, didn't need that much engine, so quiet and nice plus a cool mix of good music.The catamaran is stable, so felt calm. We were two couples going together and three of us snorkeled and just loved it! I stayed on the catamaran and just enjoyed the sea and the undemanding company of the few others who stayed onboard, when all others (it was fully-booked) went into the water. Those who snorkeled saw lots of colourful fish and the corals, but later on we also got to see a group of the small whale-like dolphins grampus who jumped the waters around us.
The staff were nice and seemed to run things really well in a relaxed and friendly way. Snorkling equipment was included, but wet-suits cost a little extra (took them - water is quite cold in january). After snorkling session, fresh rolls with four different fillings were handed out (two each) plus cold and hot drinks. Toilets were clean, but you have to climb down a ladder to get there.

All four of us enjoyed the catamarantour and would gladly go again! Cost: 39 Euro/person. Took around 5 hours (9-14).

Thanks to the staff :)

Dear Kati,

Thank you for your excellent review on our Ocean Diva. We are happy that all of you enjoyed the cruise and that you got to see Risso's Dolphins, they are very rare and not many people encounter them.

We are happy you enjoyed the atmosphere, food and other services on Ocean Diva and hope to welcome you once again aboard Ocean Diva on your next visit to El Gouna.

Best regards,

Marcel & Wouter
