Comments The dive boat was excellent with great grilled lunch after the second dive. Was very happy with the pairings of the divemasters with the level of divers. The Gulf of Aqaba in the Red Sea had very healthy coral and lots of it. It was very interesting diving. On the last day there were no other advanced divers, so a divemaster took the two of us alone. We rented all our gear but my dive buddy wished she had brought her own full foot fins could not use the open heal they provided and used snorkeling fins which worked.
