COMMENTS:

Our first dive in the beautiful Red Sea with the amazing Red Sea Explorers. Time for a check dive to get our weighting spot on and get used to the incredible viz and stunning coral reefs - that's slightly different to what we're used to!

We saw all sorts of reef fish BUT the other group saw DOLPHINS. Not jealous at all.....

A bit more practise on our bouyancy skills and SMB deployment ready for the upcoming courses and zodiac dives. We explored the coral bommies around a bright white sandy lagoon.

We saw damsels, clown fish, anthias and blue spotted sting rays.

It's been a long time since we dived with Crosby and Edd so we took a cheeky time out to explore the innards of the Giannis D Wreck. It was a beautiful wreck covered in life with some fantastic penetration to do.

We saw loads of reef fish like angels and damsels. Nic was really impressed with the life and coral growth - she's not a massive fan of wrecks anyway. Check out the video and see if you can work out which way is up... It was like being in Inception! The Giannis D lies on it's side so penetrating the corridoors inside was really freaky. You need to keep an eye on your bubbles to work out which way is up!

Giannis D | The Fifth Point Egypt 2020

The Giannis D Wreck is one of our favourites in the whole of the Red Sea. It's covered in life and when the more experienced divers get to go inside, you fee...

COMMENTS:

A lovely little night dive - the very first time for many of our divers! It's amazing that a reef you dived on during the day can look so very different at night.

We saw loads of squirrel fish and the bright orange eyes of crustaceans reflected in our torchlight.
