As soon as you arrive at the landing place you will go on board. There you have to take off your shoes for the whole stay on board (don’t forget warm socks or sailing shoes). After this you can put your dive equipment in your dive box and put away the rest of your luggage in the cabin. The crew will store the empty suitcases until your departure. One small and one big bath towel is available in all cabins. Both will be changed once in the middle of the safari. During the cold season there is also a bathing robe for each customer. In the evening your responsible and personal tour guide will make a briefing about the boat, safety, diving, and give you general information.
To enter the salon or the cabins with dive equipment is prohibited, please don’t wear wet swimming clothes in the salon.
Each cabin has portholes. Please make sure that they are closed during travelling. Objects of value, for example computer, cameras, or mobile phones please secure in the cupboard, that there is no damage in case of water ingress. In Egypt there is no appropriate insurance, so there will be no refund.
Sleeping on deck
In case you want to sleep on deck, you should bring a sleeping bag and earflaps with you. It is not allowed to bring mattresses out of the cabin, but you can use a mattress on the sun deck.
Bathrooms and toilets
Please don’t throw toilet paper or any other sanitary rubbish into the toilet. Use the basket beside because the toilet can be stopped up. To fix it during the safari is most of time not possible and you will be disturbed by the dirt and bad smell. Also the paper that is drifting on the reefs disturbs the pleasure of diving. Please use sparingly soap and shower gel because the waste water goes directly in the sea. In some shops you can find already biodegradable products.
Smoking on the boat
There is no smoking in the salon, in the cabins and on the dive deck. Please use the available ash-trays and don’t throw the stub over board
