Divecrew have chartered a brand new luxury boat for 2021. Diving the Red Sea, sailing out of Port Galib. “Get Hammered” has SOLD OUT for the last six years. Lead diver is Martin aka Shark Bite. Martin attracts Oceanic White Tip Sharks. Flying out of Gatwick into Marsa Alam International Airport, your transfer is about 15 minutes to Port Galib. You board and are greeted by the head guide Tarek and the crew. Once once on board there is the formality of paperwork and putting your equipment together, then a boat briefing and late dinner. This boat was on its first sea trials November 2020. It is a huge 40 metres and can accommodate up to 28 guests in absolute luxury. Air conditioned luxury bedrooms all en-suite. Two guides headed up by the very experienced Tarek. The evening is spent have a chilled drink before heading to bed and sleeping in port.
In the morning once permissions are given, the boat sets sail and our incredible experience begins. Breakfast is a leisurely affair all freshly prepared by the boats chef and crew. A couple of shallow check dives on the way, then we are off to Daedalus. Daedalus is a world famous reef for Hammerheads. Hence the Get Hammered. As well as hammerheads you can encounter, oceanic white tip, huge Napoleons, turtles, moray and on the west wall there is Nemo City.
Divecrew charters the whole boat and working with the head guide and captain, we have the flexibility to change the itinerary to ensure top quality diving.
For those that have never dived from a liveaboard before, once you experience this, you will never want to dive any other way.
So once we have experienced our hammerheads, we set off again to St Johns and Fury Shoals. Here you can experience walls, swim throughs, soft and hard coral gardens with an abundance of life. Previously we have experienced pods of 30 or more dolphins with pups.
So the water is generally 28 degrees centigrade. Visibility? As far as the eye can see. Current is normally very little if any. Diving is for Advanced. If you are not an advanced diver, don’t worry, Divecrew Instructors can teach you as we start the holiday. You will come back with great memories of an incredible experience, a sun tan and a new certification. We can also teach Nitrox, Deep and Night. Other certifications include conservation suites. PADI or SSI you choose.
