I travelled to Egypt in December which was a great time to visit as the dive sites were relatively empty and there was plenty to see.

Although it was a little odd that the dive guides didn’t accompany the diving groups on all of the dives, the briefings were thorough and it did not seem like a safety issue to me.

I got to explore wrecks and saw plenty of dolphins, eels and vibrant corals.

We arranged this liveaboard trip with the Blue Pearl and were certainly not disappointed. We would definitely book this trip again, or a different itinerary with the same boat.

The boat is very comfortable and the crew was fantastic. They were very professional, helpful and provided great service.
