You will be picked up from your hotel in Portghalib in the morning (at around 8.00) and brought to the ship, which will then make its way towards one of the diving places. On the boat , we will begin theoretical training and we will go through the whole trip plan. When the boat reaches the first diving place, you will be dressed in diving equipment. You will then dive along with an instructor. Diving time is about 20 minutes. The diving is made in a one to one system, that means that for every one tourist there is one instructor, who is beside the tourist all the time. After two dives (6-8 meters deep) in two different places, we return back to port around 4:00 p.m, from where you will be taken back to your hotel in Hurghada.

People with organic heart diseases, chronic catharist status, asthma, epilepsy, as well as pregnant women shouldn’t dive. The DSD program can be an ideal introduction to the Open Water Diver diving course.
