Brilliant report!

27 dives is still a going for it, considering the time lost to the officials. 40 dives over the 2 weeks, some lasting and hour or so is really pushing things, so the no dive enforced upon you must have been welcome.

Thanks for posting.

Nice report, has been on my "to do list" since Alibaba told us about it a few years ago :)
This trip is not to be confused with the Royal Emperor out of Port Sudan. I think Alibaba was a guide on this boat (please correct me if I am wrong). This flight does not go via Cairo, but to Marsa Alam and then sailing down from Egypt. So there is not the hassle of 2 nights stop in Cairo and plane changing. The hassle with the Sudanese authorities is another matter.

Must have missed this before. Some lovely pics. Would have thought the unicorn fish was better swallowed tail first! :)

Sorry only just seen this. Yes I know, I wasn't confused about anything.

Alibaba told us about this boat long before its keel hit the water because he was involved with it, although apparently he is now on a boat called Reef Master. I only found this out last week.

Doing Sudan from Egypt is the only way I would have done it, however I am still uncomfortable about giving any of my money to the Sudanese.
