'Get Wrecked' liveaboard - 1 in 6 goes free

| No TrackBacks

Book 5 places and the 6th person goes FREE*
FREE nitrox (subject to availability)

Dive the best of the best of the famous wrecks of the northern Red Sea.

ASMAA_new sm.jpgSailing from Hurghada on Asmaa (pictured left), the aim is to dive all the wrecks in the area including El Mina, an Egyptian mine sweeper lying just outside Hurghada's harbour; Suzanna, a small pleasure yacht, the Carnatic, the tile wreck, the lentil wreck and Giannis D at Abu Nuhas. At Gubal islands we dive the Barge, the Ulysses (sunk in 1887) and the Rosalie Moeller, then onto the Kingston (or Sarah H, sunk in1881) lying at Shag Rock; then the Carina (sunk in 1926) lying close to Shab Ali and, of course, the Dunraven (sunk 1876) at beacon rock  situated in the Ras Mohammed National Park.

Finally the most famous wreck in the Red Sea the Thistlegorm, which lies at Shab Ali.

These wrecks are spectacular and make fantastic material for the underwater photographer being smothered in corals. The famous SS Thistlegorm and the Rosalie Moller are World War II wrecks and one of the highlights of this cruise.

thistlediver_sm.jpg In between wreck dives you will also visit the reefs of the Straits of Gubal, Gulf of Suez and those to the north of Hurghada. A variety of deep walls and hard coral gardens with an abundance of reef fish make them well worth a visit.

All wrecks are subject to divers' experience and weather conditions. A minimum of 20 logged dives and Advance OW Diver is required to be able to dive the deeper wrecks - or you can do your Advanced course on board!

* Free place just pays an extra 30 Euro for Marine Park and fuel surcharge fees.
Offer excludes Easter week and 15/09/10 - 15/11/10.

Emperor Hurghada opens a bijou place

| No TrackBacks
You might well remember Keith from Emperor Sharm's Sharks Bay. Well he's moved...to a bijou little place right on the beach in Hurghada!

Thanks to Keith's decorating skills, the once rather run-down 'hut' on the Sea Garden beach is now a snazzily smart beach hut complete with classroom, showers, toilets...and Keith, of course. Ably assisted by Sherif and Mahmoud from Emperor's Operations Team, transformations are now complete.

You can now enjoy, not only the fruits of their labours, but also a day at the beach in Hurghada with confined water and open water activities, which take place in the lagoon right in front of the centre.

Mix and match that with a diving holiday in Hurghada and you've got the perfect set-up. Want to know more about diving in Hurghada? Just click here for dive sites, wrecks, zodiac diving and a whole lot more.
