The Amelie Safari specialises in underwater photography dive trips.
In addition to choosing the best photography spots for the time of year, Amelies’ exceptional staff are on hand to provide trained assistance to underwater photographers.
Snorkelers and non-divers are welcome aboard and it’s also possible to be taught dive courses throughout the duration of a trip. To dive, you only need your open water cert and no logged dives, making Amelie a great option for beginners.
Amelie also offer a highly personal trip. Once you make a booking until the adventure begins, they will communicate with you to discus your personal wishes.
You can choose between different dive sites around Hurghada and discus additonal preferences. This is next level personal service, not often encountered on liveaboards!
There are 3 different areas to sunbathe, outfitted with comfortable mattresses, beanbags and partial shading.
There’s also a cosy indoor saloon with drinks station and dining room where freshly prepared Egyptian cuisine is prepared buffet style.
“There were only 3 of us onboard as customers so we were outnumbered by the instructors and crew! But that meant we got loads of help from the crew and instructors.
Very comfortable cabins and beautiful boat that was kept spotlessly clean. Unfortunately we didnt see any big fish or mammals (except a whale shark from the boat) but Nov is not the best season to dive here.
Medhat is a brilliant instructor who is always thinking about how to make your dives as comfortable and safe as possible. I did my AOW onboard with him and he was brilliant”
