COMMENTS:

Stunning walls on Shark Reef and the toilet cargo of Yolanda made an excellent dive in the Ras Mohammed Nature Reserve. We were amazed that we got this dive site all to ourselves - not another dive group in sight!

We saw a hawksbill turtle, moray eels, blue spotted stingrays, butterfly and banner fish. Plus James found a hole to go inside so he was very happy.

COMMENTS:

The Thistlegorm is one of the Red Sea's most famous wrecks. Our divers stuck to the outside rather than venturing into the cargo holds to see the trucks and bikes. It was teeming with life on the outside.

We saw nudibranchs, scorpion fish, batfish and Scott is adamant he saw a shark inside one of the doors!

The world renowned SS Thistlegorm... two experienced divers... two Suex Scooters... and lots of holes. These two were like kids in a sweet shop! Just check out all the tiny holes they squeezed themselves through and then zipped over the famous cargo of bikes and vans.

COMMENTS:

This is hands down the best night dive I’ve ever done. The variety of life was unbelievable. In one dive I saw nearly every species of moray eel I can think of, including George, the biggest giant moray I’ve ever seen! The lionfish were class, using my torchlight to hunt. And there were so many of them I nearly swam face first into them!

We also saw crocodile fish, octopus, cuttlefish, squirrel fish, goat fish, coral crabs, sleeping parrot fish. You name it, we saw it. Amazing. PLUS our first Dive Against Debris at night!
