On 18 October LSAC members travelled to Egypt for a week on liveaboard Hurricane for a southern Red Sea dive trip.
The week started with check dives and a night dive at Abu Dbab Reef before an overnight sailing to the famous Daedalus Reef. Hurricane moored up to this red for two days a six stunning dives. The sharks were out in force with Oceanic Whitetips and dozens of Hammerhead sharks.
After Daedalus Hurricane travelled to Fury Shoals for dives on several reefs including Sataya South, Shaab Malahi, Shaab Claudia Abu Galawa Kebira diving the wreck of tugboat Tien Hsing. The stunning shallow reef dives provided easy dives and lots of marine life. The trip ended with with a trip to Elphinstone reef and El Shona where divers were lucky to see sea turtles.
Last week seven LSAC divers of various grades - Ocean Divers to Advanced Divers took a short four day trip to the Isle of Man.
The weather was changeable but divers managed to dive sites such as Burroo, Sugarloaf Caves and The Puddle.
The marine life was amazing with dogfish, conger eels, cuckoo wrasse, pollock and many many seals playing with the divers.
Thanks to Discover Diving in Port St Mary for fills and advice on suitable dives sites. Their local knowledge was a great help. Plans are hopefully in place for a return visit in 2018. Hope you enjoy (thanks to Tony Turley for the videos).
