    Red Sea Liveaboard company & route rec.? Experience requirements?

    Thanks for the reply. I'm back from the trip and had a great time with Blue O2 We did best of wrecks which included a day of dives at brothers and we dove 2 extra days near marsa alam and dove Elphinstone. Solid diving. Saw longimanus, white tip, dolphins, eagle ray, etc.

    LOB in Egypt dont have enough guides?

    the guide ratio ended up totally fine on the LOB. Out of 24 divers, only 4-8 of us would use guides (so the 2 guides were always plenty) The rest did self guided and a group of ~8-10 were a club

    LOB in Egypt dont have enough guides?

    it should, they dont look at vaccine info at all besides seeing any vaccine name they recognize and that the date is valid for the dose(s) They take 3-5 sec per person to verify and they dont scan in Hurghada

    LOB in Egypt dont have enough guides?

    we did the same. you can get PCR or Antigen tests from Egypt Tourism Authority (near Hurghada airprort) Took 30 min and to go pick it up the next day and PCR was 30$ USD (make sure to be able to pick it up 24h later (next day). No same day test/results for PCR

    The LOB co's rely on the airport verification. No extra test needed

    LOB in Egypt dont have enough guides?

    I'm guessing you are referring to my thread. There's 2 maybe 3 DMs for 20-26 divers. People are grouped and you can decide to remain with the guided group. I'll be there in 2 weeks, I'll let you know how the experience was if you want to reach out mid October (I'm also a first timer w/ LOB)

    Looking for info on house reefs diving, hotels, food and best areas

    Yes, this is the current idea we have. We thought to do a few prep dives near Hurghada and then after the LOB, either stay around Soma Bay area or head all the way towards Marsa Alam/Lahami We noticed the ferry issue and do not want to fly again, so we eliminated the Sinai peninsula area for...

    Who here listens to Dive talk?

    No. I meant wearing the same cath for a full day with 3-4 dives. ("a day with multiple dives" is what I meant) I don't wear a cath typically, but it happened to a few divers I know. Wearing their drysuit for a full day of dives and on the third/4th dives, they went to pee underwater & the heat...
