Gail Herd

Global Tailor Made Specialist

I have been working in the diving travel industry for nearly 20 years, I learnt to dive in Sharm El Sheikh many moons ago and was instantly "bitten by the bug". I have dived in many wonderful countries around the globe including Red Sea, Australia and Thailand to name but a few. Although there are still many destinations on my personnel to do list, I sell a wide variety itineraries to worldwide destinations that I carefully research and put together for clients as if they were my own trips. In recent years I have introduced my two children Harry & Rosie to the underwater world! Harry is now a Junior Advanced Open Water diver with dreams of being an instructor and Rosie is excited about gaining her advanced next summer. Both of them have learnt at Marsa Shagra with the Red Sea Diving Safari which is such a wonderful place to learn and gain experince, call me and i can get you and your family on this wonderful adventure.

My Favourite Places


There are so many diving highlights, my first memorable moment was just after qualifying in the Red Sea and coming up close with Turtles and feeling so peaceful and happy I knew then I absolutely had to work within the dive industry. I am a HUGE fan of the Red Sea and the Philippines. Also Indonesia, Lembeh is a fantastic place especially for keen photographers and Manado. Also not forgetting those once in a lifetime trips such as Micronesia, Truk for the breath-taking WWII wrecks, Yap with the majestic mantas and the AMAZING Galapagos Islands flora and fauna, and hammerhead and whale shark it is a plentiful destination above and below the water!
