Blue Fin

Crew were lovely, very friendly and incredibly helpful. Cabin did not feel up to usual standard for Blue O2, quite tired. Mohammed, salon manager was excellent as was Mustaffa. Would be nice if as per other liveaboards there was a board with daily itinerary and timings. Felt a little in the dark sometimes

Great experience. Amazing crew

The crew was amazing, fun and engaging. They picked great dive sites and really looked after everyone's safety.
The boat was very nice. The layout let's everyone enjoy what they want - sun or shade.
Food was really good and they catered to special needs or cravings from seconds.

Amazing crew and a lovely boat

We had a lovely holiday on board the Blue Fin. The staff were all super friendly and couldn't do enough for you. The only issue was that there weren't many options available for kit. I requested a medium 3mm and was presented with a small 5 mm. I had explained in advance that my body shape often means I have to have a couple of brands as options but there was only one choice (All be it in a couple of sizes) and I couldn't get them on. Luckily a dive guide lent me his 3mm shorty but I don't know what I would have done without him - frozen in just a bikini I guess. This needs to be rectified. Not everyone is the same shape. There was also a criminal lack of spares if something broke and my regulator had to just be swapped with a crew member which wasn't ideal (it worked but made an awful noise when I breathed)!!

Otherwise we had a great trip and the food was sooooooo great! Also Mohammed the dinner room man is an absolute star!

Amazing week, amazing diving, all staff were very attentive and always very happy to help with anything.

The whole trip was fantastic. I loved how helpful the team was when getting ready and getting out of the water. The boat handling skills they had were excellent! I loved all of the dives. The foot was very good and also very healthy which is great. Our rooms were always clean and mohammed and his assistant were fantastic! I wish we could have him at home!
The only thing I could critisise is that they didn't always know what the current was doing even though tide information is available on line. So some times the dives were hard against the current.

Mediocre trip

Diving was great, in my personal experience there is never a bad dive highlight of the trip was dolphins on ghiannis d. Attitude of the dive staff was awful, having owned and workEd on liveaboards for 12 years and travelled all over the world diving this is the worst I have ever been on, guides not in the water, certainly not diving, briefings quiet and no personality . The only time the guides smiled was tip time Ramadam was better. At least he was polite and smiled occasionally . Mohamed was amazing , smiles all the way through the trip , room stank like a sewer and half the trip had bad stomachs .. not a good atmosphere but good diving

Improved fin

Having previously dived with Blue Fin I was pleasntly surprised how much has improved on the boat . Fantastic diving as always although could have done more time on the big wrecks rather than the smaller wrecks in the reef.

Not happy

I have already written a review but this was before I discovered that envelopes identifying each diver were being used to collect 'discretionary tips'.
REALLY? Is this what blue O2 have sunk to? Tips are probably your best gauge of crew performance, far more accurate than these surveys which are filtered for good comments to use in sales blurb but then generally ignored!
If you want to guarantee your crew are payed properly then how about actually paying them properly instead of using these underhand methods to make people feel obliged to pay regardless of how they feel about the service.

Superb crew, dive guides and kitchen staff,

Food, service and diving was excellent. Looked after us really well and the whole boat is really well managed.
Booking system from UK Office is not working very well, disorganised, incorrect information and slow.
Maybe share good practice from Egypt staff to UK Management.

The staff were amazing very attentive and worked hard to give us a great experience. My cabin was cleaned well but did smell a bit the staff opened the port hole and put air freshener in the room. The guides were great especially when I was nervous about penetrative the wreck.
