Red Sea Safaga reefs and northern wrecks
Went on the M/Y Aphrodite ( http://www.my-aphrodite.eu/my_aphrodite.html ) for a week w/ my 20 yr-old daughter, 4 friends and 16 (former) strangers. In our group of 6 from the same dive club only 1 had ever, EVER dove in warm water!
The trip was a brilliant success. Daytime temps were 25-29C, water 23-27C. We saw neat wrecks like the Salem Express, 3 of the Abu Nuhas wrecks, SS Thistlegorm, Rosalie Möller & the Kingston, also many, many beautiful reefs, 2 Eagle rays, 1 turtle and 1 shark. We even spent most of one dive in the company of 17 dolphins (Small Gubal Island/Bluff Point)! The food was excellent and plentiful, all the staff were really nice, everything was just brilliant. It would have been a great trip on my own but being with friends was esp. fun & buddy diving with my daughter was just too great for words.
There's a real good chance we'll be doing that again!
Sweet - looks like a nice boat!
