Comments MY Felo is a live aboard dive boat operating in the Red Sea. They have many itineraries, but we chose South, as it is supposed to go to the less visited sites. The boat is fabulous, and the crew excellent. Nitrox is free. However, they cater to Germans mostly, so be prepared to be the only Americans on the boat. Our dive guide said we were his second and third Americans in his ten year career. The dive briefing was in German, with our guide interpreting for us on the side. The food is edible but not special in any way. We stayed in the royal suite, the best cabin on the boat, and it was by far the nicest cabin I've had on a live aboard. Very spacious with an excellent air-conditioner. The bed was hard though. Due to the reputation of terrorism tourism is down in Egypt right now. That means the cost of the trip is a fraction of what it would be anywhere else. A great value for the money. The dive sites can be crowded with other dive boats. At Daedalus I counted 8 total boats at the site. Elphinstone was the same. we spent many of our dives there and did see hammerheads, oceanic white tips, bump head parrot fish, a tiger shark, a whale shark and just a ton of other fish. The reefs themselves are spectacularly beautiful. The only drawback for me were the number of other divers. All in all it was a great trip.
