Trip Information

Loads of you have been asking about it, and at last we have managed to get it sorted. The delay in announcing this trip has been a result of all the work that has had to be put in to find another good deal – similar to those we have offered on previous trips….. We will be running a trip to Sharm-el-Sheikh on the 20th January 2007 for 7 nights. The cost of the week will be £470.00 and will include all of the following :

  • Return Flights from Gatwick (including all fuel/airport taxes) In-flight meals included.
  • All Egyptian transfers (airport / hotel / boat)
  • 5 days diving to include two dives each day (includes hire of 12 litre cylinders and weights)
  • 7 nights 3* accommodation at the Tivoli Tropicana Hotel (breakfast included).

For those of you that haven’t been before, the Red Sea offers some of the worlds most spectacular diving. I have also attached a few of the photos taken by some of the guys that joined us on previous trips just to give you an idea. For those of you that are newly qualified and/or still building your confidence, it is a perfect opportunity to build on your experience with some beautiful, relaxed diving in warm, clear water!!  Certainly an improvement on the NDAC!!

The dives will supervised and guided for the less experienced. The diving will be boat based – this means we you will be on the boat by 9 o’clock each morning and will stay out all day diving. There will be the option for those of you who wish to do and extra dive on each day. However, there will be an extra charge for this.

In the evenings, Sharm offers a wide range of restaurants, bars, pubs, casinos, clubs and other amusements to keep you entertained. There is also a restaurant and a couple of bars in the hotel if you fancy something a little quieter. Please be aware that the cost of the week doesn’t include any of the following:

  • Kit hire
  • Dive and travel insurance (please arrange your own – speak to Ian or Rob for some recommendations)
  • Egyptian Visa (approx £10 available on arrival in Sharm)
  • Return travel to Gatwick (on previous trips a shared coach has cost approximately £25 per person)
  • Nitrox, Thistlegorm trips (well recommended!!), night dives (also recommended!!), 15 litre cylinders and other extra dives can all be arranged but will incur extra supplements.

We are waiting for exact confirmation of these. Kit hire will be available from the shop at discounted rates. Prices listed here are per week :
