Reefs and Wrecks in the Red Sea Diving Trip

The annual diving expedition to the Red Sea was a hugely enjoyable trip. Despite the unusually windy conditions, the group approached all their dives with enthusiasm and a great deal of interest. Our dive guides (Sonia and Zizou) were outstanding, and offered unending help and advice during the trip. 

After leaving the new marina in Hurghada and completing our check dive, the rest of the week was spent diving a mixture of northern reefs and wrecks.  Particular highlights included the three dives on the wreck of the Thistlegorm, a wreck we have dived before, but never in such good visibility and with the opportunity to spend so much time on the site. With two day and one night dive (when the wreck comes alive with colour as the encrusting corals start to feed) we explored almost every area possible. 

Although sharks were absent from this trip, most of the group had a dive with a turtle and some good views of spinner dolphin from the Zodiac. 

Another successful dive expedition was concluded with a party on the boat, including the obligatory roast turkey.
