With new Tekstreme teams now up and running in Hurghada, Sharm El Sheikh and Dahab, Paul Vinten reports on the first Tekstreme safari from Sharm. Rather enjoyable it seems!
Report from Paul Vinten, Tekstreme tech safari, 18 - 25 November
"We left from Sharm going north with 11 trimix divers on a mixture of Closed and Open circuit systems. The guides were myself along with Michael Heuze who runs tekstreme in Sharm.
It was our responsibility to oversee all the gas mixing and blending in order to ensure the guests had their required trimix and decompression gases for the dives. In addition to this, we had to give 'slightly different' dive site briefings to those given on the day boats!
Our diving included a long penetration dive on the wreck of the Rosalie Muller, dives to over 100m on the beautiful walls at Ras Mohammed, explorations of the deep caves at depths of down to 90m at Jackfish Alley and a tour down the stunning canyon of Thomas Reef at Tiran.
The safari was a great success and as the guests departed, they were already talking of next year's trip!"
Places are now available on the next Tech Safari: 11 - 18 February 2005.
