WHAT DOES ONE OF OUR DAYS LOOK LIKE?
We anchor the boat by an island or a coral reef, in a protected bay, and the fun begins. Swimming, snorkelling, riding in zodiacs, fun on the white sandy beaches of uninhabited islands. No need to cramp on your local beaches. You are the only ones on the natural beaches of the Red Sea.
In our experience, this type of time spent together is really good for parent-child relationships. These activities are useful, sensible, enjoyable, healthy, any not boring by any means. It is quite a thrill to see how children become one with nature as the days go by. While all these water activities are going on, others may go scuba diving (certified divers), or try for an intro dive with a dive guide, to see what it is like under water.
This is an all-inclusive week-long holiday for families, friends, divers, and non-divers alike.
A SPECIAL SHOUT-OUT TO DIVING INSTRUCTORS!
These trips are perfect to hold OWD, AOWD, Nitrox, and various specialty courses.
