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.
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
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
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'm heading to the Red Sea diving for the first time and am completely unfamiliar with how things are done there. Looking for explanation of the diving situation when doing local/beach dives from a dive resort.
If I bring my entire gear and am only missing air/nitrox tanks +...
Posted recently on a liveaboard to the Egyptian Red Sea and gotten useful information!
We will be a couple diving and ended up booking with Blue O2, the best of wrecks route
Before the week of liveaboard, we want to spend a day or two diving near the departure port (Hurghada).
We ended up booking a wreck route with Blue O2.
We want to dive a day or two before the liveaboard begins and then another 4-6 days after the liveaboard.
I'd love recommendations of dive hotel/resort(s), which house reefs are best, which areas are most interesting and feature the...
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...
