We booked a Red Sea cruise with Aquarius whilst staying at the Coral Sea Resort in Nabq Bay in mid October 2010. As a group of four adults and four children (ranging from 8 to 11) we were looked after extremely well. The Aquarius rep, Solo, was helpful throughtout. He arranged a free scuba diving trial in the hotel pool and gave us a good discount for the group booking.
The pick-up from reception was punctual and transfer to the boat at Shark's Bay was only 15 minutes. The boat itself was very clean and spacious and the crew were polite, helpful and very good with the kids. Of the 8 family members, 4 chose to scuba dive (2 adults and 2 kids) and 4 chose to go snorkling. The equipment and instruction provided was great and all of the diving instructors were very calm and filled the group with confidence.
The dive itself was fantastic. You can choose your pairing (maximum of 1 instructor to 2 clients) so I dived with my 11 year old daughter. The experience was amazing and the conditions in the Red Sea were perfect with crystal clear water and a host of different fish including Amemonie Fish (Nemos), Parrot Fish and Stingrays. At the end of the first dive we were free to snorkel until all of the diving groups had finished.
Lunch was served as we cruised to the second dive and snorkelling site. The food was very tasty and varied with an Egyptian theme.
The second and third dive and snorkling locations were as impressive as the first and gave plenty of opportunity to see the amazing array of aquatic wildlife in the sea. The guide would dive to the sea bed and point out interesting creatures.
We finished the cruise with a return to Shark's Bay at about 4pm, followed by a short transfer back to the hotel.
We also booked a day at the Aqua Park through Aquarius. Again, the mini coach was punctual and comfortable and, as with the Red Sea cruise, the price was signficantly less expensive than with First Choice.
Not only would I recommend Aquarius to a friend but when we return to Sharm I will definitely be diving with them again. The staff were extremely professional and the experience was absolutely amazing.
