Yesterday 9 Clidivers made a dash for the sun and headed to Egypt for a week long tour of the northern wrecks and reefs. After a couple of pints at the pub in Gatwick, a few gin and tonics on the plane, and a stop off for a week’s supply of beer in Sharm, we finally boarded our home for the week, the MV Juliet. Due to our late arrival we had to spend the first night in the harbour before making our departure at the very civilised 9am this morning.
The first stop was a check dive at Ras Katy followed by the Dunraven. After lunch we enjoyed a drift along the wall at Sabah Mahmoud Reef where some of the group spotted a white tip reef shark. The highlight for me however was the night dive where we were followed by several lionfish, saw a spanish dancer dancing, shrimp cleaning a massive moray eel, a crocodile fish trying to hide, a school of batfish and star gazers burried in the sand.
