This February Susi and I headed to our first diving trip to Red Sea, more precisely to Hurghada. We had two to three dives every day. We travelled with Hakkis and our instructor and pal Jukka.
All in all the experience was incredibly rewarding. When you see a nature documentary of some sort and then go to the locale, it never is that great when you get there. Not so with the Red Sea. If you fell of a diving boat drunk, you were immediately in middle of a Cousteau documentary.
We got to see all kinds of marine life, including tortoises, octopi, smaller and bigger stingrays and also dolphins, although the latter I saw only from our zodiac, since I didn’t find my flippers and gear from the after dive chaos in time. The dolphins skimmed the surface near enough to the boat to touch.
