Easy Diving South

Easy Diving South

Tour description

The perfect liveaboard for divers who like it cozy and comfortable. Different than all other tours for this one you only need the OWD qualification and there is no minimum amount of dives necessary. Due to the fact that we are visiting the most beautiful dive sites only between Marsa Alam and Hamata, the travelling time is quite short and there is a lot of time between the dives to enjoy snorkeling or just to relax. Over night the boat always stays at reefs which offer a good protection against the wind so that there is in fact just a low risk of seasickness. On the way back to Port Ghalib the boat will also make a stop at a small island and you will enjoy a tasty BBQ prepared by the crew. This safari can also be booked by diving students who already finished the theory and the pool dives and just need the open water dives for their SSI or PADI OWD.

  • Small diving groups
  • BBQ on a island
  • A lot of diving experience in one week
  • Dolphin snorkeling at Sataya
  • Ideal for divers with little experience
