LiveAboard Dive Safari Holiday on MV BiG Blue – already set to be a favourite with the Scubaholics Dive Club.

This is a fantastic itinerary doing just about every famous wreck you’ve heard of in the Northern Red Sea.

Touring the Reefs around Ras-Mohammed and Abu-Nuhas there will be plenty of wildlife, corals and of course lots and lots of RUST !

Gatwick- Hurghada return flights, with easy 15min transfers to the boat at the Marriot Marina -making it convenient & hassle free.

The BiG BLUE “Wrecks & Reefs” itinerary takes us on a magical mystery tour of shipwrecks in the Northern Red Sea.  Our “check-dive” will be on the beautiful reefs just north of Hurghada.

We have the opportunity to pick off some of the Big Walls & Canyons in Tiran & RasMo as well as the wrecks of Abu-Nuhas, with the wrecks of Ghiannis-D, Kimon-M, Chrisoula-K and Carnatic.  We will then go for both SS ThistleGorm and Rosalie-Moller, with options on Dun Raven and/or Hebat-Allah to wrap  up a great week.

 

About the Trip:

 

 

Minimum Qualification: PADI Advanced Diver (or equivalent) +20 dives
(* need to have or be doing Deep-Wreck-Nitrox Specialties)

Full range of PADI Specialty courses running

Specialty Instructor training available

PADI Tec 40-45-50 quali-dives planned

For divers already qualified at PADI ADVANCED DIVER level, this is a fantastic opportunity to build your experience and benefit from specialty training to extend your competence and confidence whilst exploring the ocean environment.

Because of the special itinerary – you will need to have completed (or plan to complete on the trip) the Deep – Wreck & Nitrox PADI Specialty training programs.

This trip could be ideal as your first visit to the Red Sea as you have the opportunity to dive all week with a BlueOcean instructor for close support and supervision if you take the various specialty training options available. You’ll learn loads and have a huge amount of FUN…

 

 

The Ocean Diver Specialty pack covers all aspects of boat diving, drift diving procedures, multi-level dive planning and techniques for using SMBs (surface marker buoys).

The Wildlife Specialty pack will give you a great understanding of the marine environment, covering Fish Identification, Coral Reef Conservation and Underwater Naturalist knowledge with a specific focus on marine invertebrates.

By the end of your week on this LiveAboard Safari dive tour you’ll be well on your way towards the elite level in the PADI system: Master Scuba Diver.

The BiG BLUE “Wrecks & Reefs” itinerary takes us on a magical mystery tour of shipwrecks in the Northern Red Sea.  Our “check-dive” will be on the beautiful reefs just north of Hurghada.

We have the opportunity to pick off some of the Big Walls & Canyons in Tiran & RasMo as well as the wrecks of Abu-Nuhas, with the wrecks of Ghiannis-D, Kimon-M, Chrisoula-K and Carnatic.  We will then go for both SS ThistleGorm and Rosalie-Moller, with options on Dun Raven and/or Hebat-Allah to wrap  up a great week.

This being our first trip post-Covid lockdown, there are sure to be some of the legends in the Scubaholics Dive Club along for the ride. It’s going to be an epic bunch of mad bubblers escaping together!

Guided by our PADI Course Director and Tec Instructor Trainer Ryby, you know that you’ll be in for some great diving and terrible jokes…

We apologise in advance for the latter. 

 

 

Most people comment that the team camaraderie and relaxed atmosphere truly “make” the holidays when we go away as a club. Fun & Games are had by all – and whilst we are the “Official Drinking Club with a Diving Problem”… we take our diving very seriously.

You’ll have some truly adventurous dives, exploring the beautiful reefs that the ships were wrecked on, and deep into the bowels of the engine rooms and passageways.

Bring a torch!

For new PADI Pros on the Instructor Development Course, this trip is planned for you to complete a whole range of Specialty Instructor ratings.

There are 28 of them – let’s see what you can achieve!

…and YES – you can even do Drysuit out in the Red Sea if you really want to. The local guides do at this time of year, though 28*C doesn’t really warrant it!

Having completed the class, pool and lakes (brrrr-r-r-r) for the IDC, a week in the Red Sea is a welcome break and a move towards “living the dream” of being a full time dive pro travelling the world in the sun.

You’ll certainly come back with experience of teaching techniques for the ocean environment and at least a dozen of the core specialty instructor qualifications under your belt.

 

 

For divers wanting to seriously extend your limits as PADI TEC DIVERS, we are offering the qualification dives for TecRec 40-45-50 on this trip though you do need to do the class & pool study beforehand.

The qualification dives involve some simply stunning dives with quite a lot of scuba toys, skills & drills and much amusement along the way.

For accomplished sport divers who are already pushing the limits of what’s allowed in the recreational diving envelope… Welcome to the Dark Side!

GUIDED DIVING is also available for anybody who would like a knowledgeable professional to lead and take care of navigation…

For those already qualified as MASTER SCUBA DIVER or TEC DIVER – the BiG Blue guides will give you the support and/or freedom to enjoy the Walls & Wrecks if you have the necessary experience to just get on with it and explore.
