The Brothers

The briefings by Elke were amazing, I really felt I had all possible information for each dive. I have dived these reefs many times and hung with the Oceanics and not felt at all peturbed. However I was grateful for Elke's spedific shark briefing, and realised that I had not been properly advised before. I was pleased to know about behaviour with Oceanics, it certainly made me super cautious.

Pleased to see the hand gel on board, and the saloon staff wearing gloves.
Good gas fills.

Extremely unhappy to have to share the main outdoor deck with smokers.there should be a designited area for smokers (Fin is a small boat, maybe limited opportunity) but being forced to breath smoke is not good when diving. Suggest boats should be NO SMOKING ZONES., like aeroplanes.

Gob smacked to learn that the German dive guide was going to have one third of the staff tips. There should have been a separate envelope for the German guide who had no involvement with our dives. In fact, I didn't really see any guides on my dives,, apart from one night dive, but even then, I did not see Ķhalid actually point out anything to us.

First time in the Red Sea diving and have been very impressed with the diversity in the ocean.. Spent a week on Blue Fin and had a great time. We'll looked after by dive crew and boat crew alike. Food, dives and boat all top notch.

a fantastic first time diving in the Red sea

Blue Fin liveaboard was fantastic from stepping on the boat to leaving. The crew made us feel like royalty for the week. Food was amazing with a wide variety of choice. Dive guides were extremely informative and made the trip an excellent first experience of a livaboard in the Red Sea.

Best Boat I've Been On

Blue Oh Two's service started at Gatwick, where their rep identified prospective divers (we do stand out a bit) and checked us off her list. Transit to the boat was quick and efficient. Chief guide (Elka)'s first briefing was detailed and gave us a lot of good information particularly in relation to safety close to the surface and how to spot the current changing. Both Elka and Anne's guiding was excellent. I particularly liked the way that we were treated as experienced adult divers, not a flock of sheep or schoolchildren. Having briefed a dive, Elka was perfectly happy if buddy pairs wanted to go unguided. Most divers on the boat were very experienced except for one. This might have been a problem, but Elka managed the situation well and gave that diver opportunities while not restricting the rest of the group.

Kit organisation and refill on the boat was flawless.

RIB use was excellent. Safe, quick and courteous.

Food was excellent.

The boat crew in general lived up to the name of the trip - Simply The Best.

Highly recommended.

good Livaboard

Boat maintained to a high standard. Crew very attentivery and helpfully. My wife is vegan and the rest of the guests were often envious of the meals prepared for her. Dive guides Elke and Lynn were very good. A special mention must be made for Amin... he was like superman in the boat crew. Everywhere at once! Running the salon, on the dive deck, in the ribs, Polite, respectfull, helpfull, in just the right amount.

Fantastic diving holiday

From start to finish, the whole holiday was amazing. The staff cannot do enough for you. We stayed in the king suite, number 11 and it was true luxury. The chefs on board, they prepared wonderful food every day. Hamdy, who served us in the dining salon, was the most helpful member of staff. Achmed, the dive leader, was a fantastic and knowledgeable man and it was a pleasure to dive with him. Saeed, the engineer technician, always made sure your air tanks were ready on time. I would recommend this type of holiday to any diver.

Amazing holiday with some exceptional wreck diving, beautiful reefs and good company. Diving the Carnatic then snorkeling with dolphins was definitely an unforgettable highlight! Huge thanks to the guides and crew who made us very welcome and at home on board the M/Y Blue Fin :)
