Back to the bay and loving it!

Back to the bay for me and the final day of an Open Water course is ahead. We only have two dives to do and we are finished. My guests has been really determined during this course, as he gets violently sea sick, hence the last day is in the bay instead of on the...

Living the high life

Time for a night dive….

Time for me to do a rare night dive again. Much as I tried, no one wanted to swap, so despite my best efforts, it's going to happen. At least I get a change of scenery and I am diving from the Hyatt on Middle Garden. Now the bay I've mastered, as its simply a matter...

The bay may not have Mantas, but…..

While everyone else is out chasing mantas, I’m ‘stuck’ in the bay. There are worse ways to spend your day for sure!  I have guests who are on their last day and want a lie in, and a late start. No lie in for me, I’m making sure the boats have left, and then I get to...

Hotting up!

Wow. It's like being in a blast furnace already and we haven't even hit June yet. It's gonna be a hot summer this year.  The water is still not hot though, so wetsuits are still needed, but it makes for a sweaty kit up!  Today we are headed to Tiran, I'm private...

Old School Diving

Another day, another dive.  Today is a nice easy day in the bay for me. I'll be going through some skills with a guests who has not dived for an incredible 20 years! Things have changed somewhat since she qualified, but looking through her log book reassures me that...

Manta Month

Sharm is well on its way to those sultry summer days, when temps hit the highs and the only place to be is in the sea, but just before we get there we have the very special Manta season.  Yes May is Manta month; the water temps are quickly rising and with this marine...

Heating up nicely

The weather has taken a turn for the better and is finally heating up. And with that said, I land an office day! It can't be all diving diving diving in this job. You have to be willing to turn your hand to anything that is asked of you, and today that means working...

No Shark Reef???

A blowy day out today, and after a lovely dive at Ras Ghazlani the wind has picked up, so we decide to miss out our normal Shark Reef dive. Ras Mo can be very exposed if the wind is going the wrong way, and today is one of those days.The reason is simple, the swell is...

Windy day equals sandy day!

With the wind picking up today, I'm glad to be in the bay, my second home.  With just a check dive to do, it should be an early finish and home to sweep half the desert out of my house, as I forgot to close the windows this morning! My guests are repeat guests who...

Expect the unexpected

Snow day!! Well, not snow literally, but I have an unexpected day off. My guests have disappeared. Well, that's not technically true either. They would have had to show up to then be declared missing. It's a hazard of the job that occasionally guest get sick or as in...

Dive sites open again! Yey…

With access to all the dive sites having been given back to us, we’re off to Tiran today. After a few days away, it looks as lovely as ever and my group are very excited as it’s their first time in Tiran, infact their first time in Egypt diving. They were blown away...

My turn to hit the bay today, and with a couple of people who have never dived and are doing the Discover Scuba Diving program with me. They are a young couple who are really excited. As am I when I realise they are Australian. Why? Now I'm not one to generalize, but...

Great buoyancy equals cool stuff

Another days guiding and it's off to RasMo.  I have to say it looks a little lumpy today so not going to be my favourite day this week, but hey, it's a small price to pay to live the dream!  We get away quick and when we turn the corner I breathe a huge sigh of...

It’s all gone mad!

The world's gone crazy! Well, maybe not the world, but definitely Sharm has. With the conference being held, Sharm is a flurry of activity at the moment. There's gardening, cleaning, taxi drivers in suits, oh, and diving. However we are required, for security reasons,...
