Egypt Liveaboard 2005 - M/Y Amelia - Dive #18 Dolphins! Dolphins! Dolphins! Dolphins! Dolphins! Dolphins! Dolphins! Dolphins! Dolphins! Dolphins! Dolphins! Dolphins! We intercepted a school of wild dolphins and jumped into the water with them. Me and dad already had our wetsuits on so we went in with full scuba gear, whilst others, who might have been having a nap, would only have time to go snorkelling. Simply amazing dive. The best one to this date! The dolphins chose a diver each and started playing with us. First you get eye contact as they go around you. Then they start mimicking you (If you "clap" your hands, they will "clap" their fins. If you turn/roll around, they will do the same!) Used up air very fast, but it was worth it! Avg. depth: 11,5m

beautiful house reef at Sheraton hotel (we should have stayed there!!!) highlights of the dive: - broke the lock system of my cetatek fins - and had to rave back and forth to the shop for a new pair of fins.... in the water it was awesome : loads is sea life including a rockfish, puffer giant turtle and the usual local marine life : butterflyfish, goldies, parrotfish bannerfish.... the only missing species was the clownfish! door with gopro and 100mm macro - the 100mm is really tough to use!

Cave with swim through, relatively shallow and goes in and then splits into two chambers that you could surface on either side in the chambers - left side shallows up right side remains with some depth Two large scorpionfish in cave. 42m dive (drift) Nudibranch & Tiger flatworm, blue spotted rays and usual reef fish.

Napoleon wrasse on descent, fab. Rays, boxfish, trumpets, big shoals fusilier, tang, glassfish, parrot, WHITE TIP SHARK under coral ledge, fantastic, about 3-4 feet which scarpered PDQ. Huge kingfisher blue triggerfish, grouper, lionfish, nudibranc. Swam up and down coral garden channels, great dive xx

Swim along Sandy bottom and back along wall to lagoon DOLPHINS!!! Pod of 5 Dolphins swam slowly around with us in lagoon for 5 - 10 minutes. Fantastic! nothing on Sandy bottom Good wall with many gorgonians and fans tiny scorpionfish trumpet Clowns in red anemone nudi flounder Blue spots
