Flew to Moscow and then with a hotel/flight package to Egypt. Mostly
Russians and some Italians at the hotel with British people staying in the
area. Egyptians speak english. Diving trips were scheduled on a weekly
calendar. We dove Ras Mohammad, Tiran Island and WWII wreck. The
corals,invertebrates and fish are beautiful. More fish are present during
the summer, but so are the very hot daytime temperatures. Wreck divers left
the hotel at 4:45am for a 4 hour motor to the wreck site. The wreck is in
good condition from WWII and all divers penetrated the holds and most
passages. Current and wave action arose in the afternoons. All equipment
was brought to the boats and the Centre had good facilities and a great
staff. Water temperature was 71 degrees with a 5mm wetsuit and hood perfect
at this time of year. The towns of Naama Bay and old Sharm El-Sheikh are
fun for shopping, restaurants and the smoking of Shish-shish from huge
waterpipes. The hotel package includes 2 meals and evening entertainment
was fun. The beaches and water are beautiful and the tourist area is being
enlarged considerably. The trip cost was about $1500 pp for 7 days
including all airfare,hotel and diving. Web Site

Pointer.Take Ambien first 4 days to adjust to 11 hour time difference.
