Diving in the Read Sea

It was my first time in Egypt, my first dive in the Red Sea and my first live-aboard diving cruise. I went there in June 2017.

The luxury of the boat struck me from the first moment when I set foot on it.
Seeing the boats next to it, with their small kit-up spaces for the divers, the impression of having made a good choice only grew.

My new colleague Nico recommended me this company, Anthias Plongée, that operates from Hurghada in Egypt. He did a fairly good job, so I booked a trip with them with my eyes shut.

My cruise was the Vertiges et Légendes version Tiran. We left in a north or north eastern course towards all the dive sites around these parts. We visited Ras Mohammed, Tiran islands, wrecks like the SS Thistlegorm, the Rosalie Möller and others.

The diving was good, and so was the food and service on board.

As I had booked a course to learn how to dive sidemount, I was assigned a personal instructor for the trip and most of my dives. Which was quite pleasant.

Here are some pictures.
