Summer School Holidays in the Red Sea

Sharm El Sheikh ~ Jaz Belvedere 4* Resort
Ras Mohammed – Straits of Tiran – Thistlegorm Wreck

This is a particularly special trip:
Guided by our PADI Course Director RYBY and his daughter Madeleine, the trip is being geared specifically towards parents with children wanting to dive together…
Madeleine will be 15years old – and having qualified as a Master Scuba Diva, she has been waiting to go DEEPER since she first tried on a SCUBA unit aged 5yrs !
The team are there to conduct any training you would like & ensure that you get the very best from your Red Sea dives. This trip has been deliberately planned to fit the  Sumer School Holidays – to cater for families & groups of (big)kids [*] of who have already completed the Open Water Diver course training in Class & Pool wanting to qualify in the clear warm waters of the Red Sea…

Also ideal for Scubaholics Club divers that have families wanting to come on holiday either to dive or bubble watch – the diving here is beautiful, with most reefs being untouched massive coral fields, with excellent snorkelling for those that aren’t bubble-blowers !!!
Everyone is welcome if you want to do your Open Water Qualifying dives… and the PADI Advanced Diver Course is running too, with an option to complete the Ocean Pack of Specialties. The schedule is flexible, allowing for 5 full days diving and a fun day at the AquaPark on the last day whilst dive kit is drying off.

Gatwick departures are early Friday Morning August 20th 9.15am – getting into resort in time for a good first night on holiday… return flights to Gatwick arrive late the following Friday night (Aug 27th 23.45pm), so you get the bank holiday weekend off to recover… [ or come the the BlueOcean club BBQ on the Sunday night ]

Staying in the Jaz Belvedere 4* Resort will guarantee a better standard of facilities than cheaper Red Sea “Dive Hostels” – as has been experienced by several of the Blue Ocean trips previously ( we’ve always had a great time there …. )
This is an All-Inclusive  package when staying here : Great Value For Money !!!!
The Jaz Belvedere is a quiet, safe hotel situated out of Sharm town centre, ideal for family groups as it is isolated from any temptation of bars & clubs.

Diving with Ocean College on modern well equipped dive hard-boats, with all appropriate safety equipment and large dive decks for kitting up. The local Instructors & Divemaster Dive-Guides are on board to ensure that all experienced divers have stress free tours and to help identify key points of interest.

Five days diving start with the Garden Reefs, Ras Kati & White Knight dive sites to complete Open Water & Advanced Courses and refresh experienced divers. The second half of the week moves on to the Big Walls and Drift dives on the Straights of Tiran and even more beautiful reefs further away from Sharm Bay.

The Stunning Ras Mohammed National Park reefs and the Wrecks of the Dun Raven and Yolande can be arranged for small surcharge (well worth it !! ). And for those qualified as Advanced Divers by the end of the week – there may be an opportunity to dive the world famous Thistlegorm wreck….

Standard dive packs include 2 dives / day – many divers opt for extra dives to make the most of the trips, often getting 15 or 16 dives in during the week !

Evenings are casual, usually involving a chill-out around the pool and dinner in the buffet restaurant (all you can eat) or maybe dinner out at one of the many excellent restaurants in town for a change…
