Our Trip

 

After a very clear run to the airport, we had time for some pre-flight drinks and brekkie! On arrival in Hurghada, we were the only flight to have landed so luggage collection was a breeze. Thanks to the UK Government for not following Europe's lead and cancelling travel to Egypt!

 

It made a welcome change not to have to get the coach south and after just a 10 minute transfer we were on our home for the next week: Blue Melody. Was great to see some familiar faces amongst the crew and settle on board.

 

It was lovely to have some new Indepth divers with us on this trips and hopefully the 6 divers who were not in our group did not feel too overcrowded by Indepth. Once they saw that we had arrived with Pimms and mint, wine, champagne and canapes, they must have realised we were not a bad bunch!

 

A fantastic week was had by all. We were so lucky with the sea conditions, even a mild current on the Thistlegorm. The highlight has to be diving for half an hour with 6 dolphins on the last day - magical !
