2 dives from a comfy boat for Certified Divers

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    The bus will bring you safely to the marina. Our dive guides and crew will warmly welcome you on “Basyl”, our spacious and comfortable boat. After a short check-in you can try on any pre-booked rental equipment. While our captain navigates the boat towards the first diving spot, you will get a full boat and safety briefing. Cruising time will be 45 to 90 minutes. Plenty of time to relax and enjoy the sun and the stunning views from our large sun beds.

    Meanwhile, our dive guides will make a detailed sketch of the first dive site on a whiteboard. Using this drawing, you will get a full briefing on the course of the dive, the specific characteristics of the dive site and the animals you can observe. The divers will be split into small groups according to their level and experience. Each group is accompanied by an experienced dive guide.

    While the divers enjoy the treasures of the Red Sea, our chef prepares a delicious lunch which is served as an extensive buffet. After the lunch you'll have 1,5 hour to unwind in the shade or sunbath on our sun beds. There is plenty of space on the sundeck and cold drinks are available.

    Around 2 pm a second dive will be conducted on a different diving spot. Our fully filled diving tanks will enable you to dive for more than 1 hour, if you wish. After the second dive, we start our trip back to the marina. While sailing back, you can enjoy the pleasant atmosphere on board and some refreshments, created by our chef. At 4 pm our vessel docks in the marine and our drivers will bring you back safe to the hotel, with some golden memories of this unique day.

    Each day we visit 2 different dive sites. When you book a multi-day dive package, we attempt to bring you to different dive sites every day. Due to the ideal location of the marina, we have a choice of 50 dive sites, ranging from shallow coral gardens, wrecks, drift or drop sites to magnificent and steep dropoffs.

    We provide guidance to all divers, regardless of their experience. No extras will be charged for the guidance by experienced dive guides.

    Your safety is our first priority! Spare materials are available on board and all possible safety features are provided. We always hang a filled safety tank at 5 m under the boat. Buddy checks and safety stops are a good habit and are strongly recommended!

    Our joyful crew is always there to help you with mounting and disassembling your dive gear.

    After returning to the marina we bring you safely back to your hotel. We rinse and dry your material every day. So you can fully enjoy a pleasant evening. If you wish, we’ll bring your rinsed and dried gear to your hotel on the last day of your stay.
