Dolphins dolphins everywhere!

Seems like everyone who was diving with Scuba Travel last week dived/snorkelled or saw dolphins!
We are not jealous at all!
Mario's red sea photography week was lucky enough to dive with dolphins for over an hour. The dolphins seemed to enjoy the encounter and hung around, they even joined them on the following dive. Can't wait to see the photo's from that. Mario however is now in Nabucco Island - Kalimantan with Martin Edge - lucky chap!

We've now released more dates for the Red Sea next year, with some early bird discounts available and reduced deposits for loyalty members.
Have you ever been to the Red Sea and not felt you've actually experienced egypt? Well now we can whisk you off on a Nile cruise on the Nile Queen with our friends at Aggressor Fleet. This is a superb add after a weeks diving.

We'd love you to vote for us as your favourite tour operator this year.
