Mehdi Zinetti (Tec Monsters) and Alex Griffin (Hell Divers) are joining forces to run a Red Sea Tec Liveaboard BEST OF THE WRECKS JAN 18-25 2019 – £1049
Aimed at tec divers of all levels on OC or CCR this is a liveaboard which takes in the best wrecks of the Red Sea from the Thistlegorm to the Rosalie Moller, the wrecks at Abu Nuhas and the Brothers too. On the boat we’ll be running courses, workshops on dive planning and helping everyone who needs it with their dive plans. The idea is that if you’re new to tec diving or haven’t done a lot of fun tec diving since your course this will be a great trip to get you into the swing of doing it. We’ll have a week of extended dives mainly within the 40m range but with the opportunity for a bit more depth on some of the sites for anyone that would like it. For example, we’ll be able to have a long dive on the Thistlegorm and Rosalie Moller and complete two wrecks in one dive at Abu Nuhas. Deeper dives will be possible on some of the walls and also at the Brothers too.
About the Trip
We’ll be flying into Hurghada (all good for travel according to the FCO, so travel insurance will be fine) and then staying on the boat for the duration of the trip. Blue O Two will meet us at the airport in Hurghada and transfer us to the boat and then back again at the end of the trip.
Qualifications and Training
Minimum cert level required for the trip will be Tec 40 but the best dives will be done on a Tec 45 or 50 ticket which you will have the chance to complete with us on the boat.
There’ll be the opportunity to complete the following courses on the boat:
- Tec 45
- Tec 50
- Sidemount either separate or in conjunction with a tec course.
Special prices are as follows, Tec 45 or 50 for £400 instead of £450, complete Tec 45 and 50 for £750. Sidemount can be completed for a special price of only £200 or added onto an existing Tec course for only £150. Other courses like Tec Instructor Programs will also be possible to run on the boat.
Itinerary: Best of Wrecks
Dates: 18th January – 25th January 2019
This itinerary follows a North and Brothers route where divers will experience the excitement of diving famous wrecks of the Red Sea, including the SS Thistlegorm, Carnatic, Ulysses, Ghiannis D and the Dunraven, so anyone who has an active interest in wreck diving will love this itinerary. However, it is also interesting to bear in mind that many of these Red Sea wrecks have been underwater for a very long time and have formed what you might call ‘artificial reefs’, teeming with life. This itinerary would therefore be enjoyed by all divers, not just the wreckies amongst us!
All dive sites are subject to weather conditions and cannot be guaranteed.
