El Sheikh Liveaboard

The dive trip was great, the dive sites where nice, very warm with great visibility.Lot’s of fish but no big pelagics, next time I travel to Egypt I think I will go to the south. The boat, crew and food were also great, they couldn’t do enough for you. The other English diver on the boat was Melanie, she also booked trip with you. We got on really great and it made the trip even better that we did so, She told me she has been very pleased with your services.! Look forward to booking the next trip with you.!

7 nights on-board the MY Ghazala in Sharm

I would recommend this holiday to others. It is an easy to reach destination and a good boat to be on. The crew work incredibly hard and with up to four dives per day it is good value for money plus Nitrox is thrown in for free! Sadly no pelagics but I am a v. spoilt diver and was disappointed that we had no shark sightings! Liveaboard was just great/ fantastic food and very helpful crew. Nothing was too much trouble. The dive centre in Sharm was very well organised. We were only there for a few hours but were impressed.

4 Nights at the Hilton Fayrouz Resort & 7 nights onboard MY Ghazala l.

This was our first liveaboard in Egypt and was a great experience, the dive guide and the crew on Gazhala one made this a memorable holiday. The accommodation was good, the staff and dive guide (Silvia) were very friendly and the food was plentiful. All arrangements from departure to arrival home ran smoothly and we would definitely book through Ultimate Diving again. The ground organization was very good. On both arrival and departure the guides were exceptionally helpful at the airport, and we were perhaps lucky with no delays.
