Emperor Divers have a slick operation that gets you out to Tiran and Ras
Mohammed with a minimum of fuss. The guides we had were Terry, Dennis and,
for the last couple of days, Laura. All were extremely professional and let
you do your own thing once they'd seen you in the water.

We got to do the 'washing machine' between Jackson and Woodhouse reefs
which led to us seeing two large grey reef sharks and two huge turtles on
the one dive. This was a great dive that rarely gets done.

Another highlight was the dive on Fiasco one afternoon where we got to swim
with a manta for nearly five minutes. Terry and Dennis had predicted that
conditions were right and whilst the vis was the worst of the entire trip
it was a dive to remember.
