Jump onboard Serenity in May for a fantastic price, this boat does not disappoint - Here are some of our latest reviews -
Just wanted to thank you for a great holiday on Serenity, we had an awesome time. The boat, crew and guides were all top class and the diving was awesome. They made me wait but I got the mantas I wanted to see. The other fish life was also really good and we saw a lot of stuff for the first time. Also a lot of hard and soft coral which was an added bonus - Dave J -April 17

Packing for the flight home

Packing is one of the most stressful bits about any holiday. Increasingly, us divers have more and more electronics too in our kit bags. So how can you pack to ensure you comply with the current rules laid out by the UK FCO on flights coming to the UK from Egypt?

Caroline was our packing guinea pig on a recent trip to Egypt this month, with plenty of camera kit to test the current system out.
