    FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

    How many dives per day will I get?

    On a seven day safari, there will be five ‘full’ days of diving – this means up to four dives per day, depending on itinerary and weather conditions. On day six there will be two dives in the morning before the vessel re-fuels and returns to port in the afternoon. This ensures plenty ‘on surface’ time before flying on day seven.

    PLEASE NOTE: It is important that you DO NOT DIVE FOR 24 HOURS BEFORE TRAVELLING BY AIR. Doing so may invalidate your travel insurance in the event of illness during your journey home.

    Muck stick – CDWS Regulations

    The Muck Stick, Pointer Stick or Lobster Tickle Stick is usually made of solid stainless steel or aluminum and is 12 to 18 inches long. Recent reports claim this device is being used – mostly by UW photographers – on coral reefs to stabilize themselves when close to the reef.

    CDWS investigation concluded the following:

    “The use of such rods to touch corals and marine organisms in order to stabilize photographers or divers negatively impacts the reefs, especially if widely used. Therefore, CDWS strongly forbids scuba divers and photographers to use these sticks in an attempt to promote an eco-friendly marine environment in the Red Sea.”

    Check in / Check out times

    Check In: Between 16:00 and 18:00 on the day of embarkation. The boat will remain in port overnight and depart from the marina the following morning at approximately 08:00.

    Check Out: Upon return into the marina during the afternoon of the last full day on board, our representatives will advise you of your precise departure arrangements for the following day. Normally, you will be expected to vacate the vessel between 09:00 and 10:00 the following morning.

    On leaving the liveaboard, and depending on your return flight departure time, you will be provided with local day use facilities. This does not include the use of a hotel room although these may be available to book at an additional cost. Please contact us if you would like to arrange a hotel room for your last night or for day use. Please note that, after breakfast on board the boat, no additional meals or snacks are provided so, for late flights, a lunch provision may be necessary.

    If you decide to upgrade to a hotel room on the final night of your trip, check in will be available from 14:00 and check out will be at 12:00 noon.

    What is included if I rent full diving equipment from Blue O Two?

    Marine park fees

    The Marine Park and Port Fees for our trips are dependent upon the country, itinerary, and often, trip duration. Some must be prepaid in advance of your departure and others can be paid onboard. Please check with our team for further information about your booking.

    The makeup of these fees vary across all of our vessels and itineraries and though they are normally referred to as Marine Park and Port Fees, or even simply Marine Park Fees, they are generally much more varied than that. These extra fees relate to expenses that are assigned by marine parks, local authorities, governmental agencies, or similar; and relate directly to costs assigned to each guest on-board at the time of departure.

    Official government costs might include obvious things such as park fees, permits/permissions, and local taxes. Less obvious elements may come in the form of more prosaic costs such as local village fees such as are paid in the Solomon Islands (commonly called Kastom Fees) and Raja Ampat. On top of this, the actual fees may be for several parks, regions, or villages in a single trip. Palau and The Philippines, for instance, will have at least three such separate fees built in on most cruises.

    Park fees and diving permits generally make up the majority of the extra costs, however, this is not always the case. In The Maldives, the fee is entirely ‘Green Tax’ and the fee in Truk includes a portion of the 5% sales tax due on an accommodation booking and sales made onboard (which many operators charge on top of any payments). Palau also has a ‘bed tax’ that is built into the fees.

    Our policy is such that our Marine Park and Port Fees are not extra income for the company. The fees are collected to cover the above per customer costs that are accrued on each trip for each client.

    Mobile phone reception & entertainment

    Mobile phones can be used on board the vessels but please note that there may not be mobile phone reception at certain dive sites on certain itineraries. There is more reception in the North and there is no reception in the Marine Parks.

    TVs in the communal areas are equipped with an Apple TV and a hard drive containing movies and TV series. The Apple TV is a digital media player allowing you to wirelessly stream your own digital library (photos, music, movies, etc…) onto the main TV or watch content from our library on your own device. If you have an IOS device, ensure that it is up-to-date and has AirPlay capabilities. No further setups will be needed. If you have an Android device, you can download an appropriate application (such as All Cast) to make both devices communicate.

    What are the technical diving requirements?

    Technical Diving – The Chamber of Diving and Watersports (CDWS) requires that we have a suitably qualified technical dive guide on board for the duration of the trip when any passengers are planning on technical diving. The dive guide must have the same, or greater, level of diving qualification (depth limit and gas mix). If you do not have your own dive buddy with the same technical qualifications booking on the trip with you, you will need to pay for a private technical dive guide.

    If you are planning on making any decompression dives, or any dive deeper than 40 meters, you must notify us prior to the point of booking your liveaboard to ensure we are able to accommodate your request. The CDWS considers technical diving to include any decompression dives or any dive deeper than 40 meters, regardless of gasses used or your certification agency.

    Please submit the appropriate form for Open Circuit Technical Diver or Rebreather Technical Diver, found here as soon as possible. If you fail to notify us in advance and/or fail to provide the completed technical diving form as requested, you may not be able to engage in any technical diving.

    Spend a day diving in St Johns before heading further south. Diving this area include some terrific coral walls and gardens, a mix of both soft and hard coral formations - probably the best in the Red Sea, plenty of tunnels, caverns, overhangs, swim-throughs and caves, and great visibility - ideal photographic opportunities. Reef fish life is abundant and the deep walls and brisk currents at some of the sites attract grey reef, hammerhead and thresher sharks, and other predator fish such as mackerel, barracuda and jacks.

    Day 4

    Morning in St Johns before travelling north to dive in the area of Cave Reef before continuing towards Fury Shoal.

    Day 5

    A relaxing day of beautiful reef diving in Fury Shoal. This large cluster of reefs offers unforgettable and easy dives. From the northern site of Small Abu Galawa to its most-southern site of Sataya, Fury Shoal can prove to be surprising and diverse. Each dive site has its particularity: from dolphins, to stunning hard coral formations and not forgetting the two little wrecks "Tug Boat" and the "Yacht".

    Day 6

    Dive the famous Daedalus reef with his spectacular drop-offs and hope to encounter some large pelagics This huge tear-drop shaped reef rises from the sea bed in the middle of the Red Sea, 80km offshore and more than 300km south of Hurghada. Easily recognised by its zebra-striped lighthouse, this reef offers some of the most amazing dives in the Red Sea. The sheer walls are covered in over-grown hard coral formations and a variety of reef fish. Napoleon wrasses and turtles are often cruising by, but make sure you keep your eyes open on the blue! Daedalus is one of those places where anything can happen. Oceanic white tip, grey reef and thresher sharks are often sighted, but Daedalus is most famous for its scalloped hammerhead sharks which can often be seen in large schools out in the blue during the summer months.

    Day 7

    After an early morning dive at Elphinstone, enjoy a relaxed dive local to Port Ghalib allowing you to cruise into harbour in the early afternoon. A Red Sea legend; a finger shaped reef, with north and south plateaus covered in hard and soft corals, unpredictable and exciting this truly is an awesome reef where hammerhead sharks are regularly spotted in the summer and oceanic whitetip sharks often congregate in large numbers during late autumn. Take advantage of an evening onshore to purchase souvenirs and enjoy Egypt's famous hospitality before your journey home the next day.
