14 May - 21 May 2016
Old Harbour Dive Centre are pleased to release details of their annual Spring Egyptian Liveaboard. It seems a long way off now, but with the evenings drawing in anf the temperatures dropping, there is nothing nicer than having a lovely diving holiday to look forward to. Why not join us onthis trip - remeber holidays are a necessity, not a luxury! - recharge your batteries and renew your passion for diving, ready for a great summer in 2016
This itinerary is one iconic wreck after another and the differences in each wreck could not be more marked. The simple delights of the 19th century Carnatic and Dunravenare all too evident. Now very much part of the reefs, the beauty of these dives speak for themselves. Hanging on the precipice of Big Brother, The Numidia is jaw dropping and a good place to drift off into the blue in search of the bigger fish.
The Second world war sisters,Thistlegorm and Rosalie Moller, both lie at anchor and are adorned with Lion Fish and snapper. And bringing the week into the mdern age are El Mina and the Salem Express. The Brothers Wreck Special serves up an intinerary of wreck diving that cannot fail to lure you beneath the waves.
Below is a video that one of our instructors made of our 2103 trip to the southern wrecks.
This Intinerary is best suited to advanced divers, but it is not limited to purely advanced divers, Old Harbour Dive Centre will have many instructors and divemasters on board who will be happy to advise you if this is your first time in the Red Sea. A Minimum of 50 dives is strongly recommended for diving the brothers, as it is remote, subject to strong currents with deep drop offs. There are alternative shallower dive sites and theres always the opportunity to snorkle/swim with the Dolphins and Turtles.
On every liveaboard trip we do there is always a fun fancy dress dive where all members of the club will dress up in a pre organised theme for a bit of a laugh. Previous years we have done diney characters and super heros but this year the Theme will be dated scuba/swim gear (retro scuba)
