Thanks to the Deep South Divers team for an incredible experience! The dive spots were an explosion of life and colours, we can't stop watching our gopro footage. Many thanks to Moody for giving us a wonderful customer experience from Day 1, including making us taste Egyptian pizza and helping my husband find an Egyptian football jersey throughout Marsa Alam :D
I did my first ever dive with the team at deep south, and I couldn't have asked for better guides. They were thoroughly conscientious and professional, while never failing to share their infectious enthusiasm for the underwater world. I feel like I've been spoiled starting my diving life in the Red sea, but I look forward to many more exciting adventures
