My partner and I have just returned home from an incredible weeks diving in the Red Sea on board MY Juliet (22/11/14 - 29/11/14).
We lasted dived from her in November 2007 and always promised to return. After several holidays to another Oonas resort (Marsa Shagra), we decided this year to return to the Juliet.
We were not disappointed - Captain Abdul and his crew were as accommodating, friendly and amazing as before.
Special thanks go out to Hani for supplying us with great air fills and to Mando for his welcome after each dive (not to mention the zipping up of the wetsuit!!). The boys in the galley kept us well fed with the most delicious meals and cake (we like cake), and to Abdul who looked after us and made sure we didn't miss out on breakfast, lunch and dinner.
A massive thank...
From the first email to Lydia at Oonasdivers nothing was a problem, great crew on the boat, very friendly and couldnt be more helpful, the guides were friendly and looked after the groups well, awesome week diving.
I'm already looking at sorting a trip next year with Oonasdivers!
The organization was smooth and flight uneventful, we were collected from the airport and soon arrived at Nesima where a warm welcome was offered. The rooms were local style and very comfortable, if perhaps the plumbing was a little rustic. Beautiful pool with excellent service. Nesima was just on the edge of both the main restaurant and shopping area so very convenient and you could dine in if you chose. The Dive Centre was friendly, well run and flexible. Our guide Nubi was the best, his knowledge of the area, local conditions and life was amazing so the diving was really first class, and there was always a helping hand if needed for unsteady feet! We saw some creatures i had never seen before and wouldn't have spotted without Nubi. How enchanting to see Light Fish on a nig...
My wife and I have been to Turks and Caicos on 3 previous occasions and dove with bigger outfits but I would recommend Aqua TCI above all of the others!
The group was small and intimate on purpose, Stephanie, Bill, and the entire crew were attentive and helpful whether you are an advanced diver or a beginner.
They took us to sites that weren't crowded with all of the other dive companies allowing us to see more marine life (turtles, dolphins, and sharks along with the normal gathering of reef fish).
The whole outfit is professional, polite, fun, and safe. Keep up the great work!
das Team hat kompetent auf meine Anfängerwünsche reagiert und mich gut begleitet.
Das Tauchrevier ist einfach hervorragend. Leider ist das Hotel nur Mittelmaß, weshalb wir das Team zum wiederholten Mal besuchten und das Hotel billigend in Kauf nahmen.
Toller Platz für uns Taucheltern, weil unsere Kinder den ganzen Tag ungezwungen spielen und umhertollen konnten.
What an awesome way to start my diving on my first liveaboard, I've just spent an amazing week on the M.Y.Juliet on their wrecks and reef tour in the north red sea.
Right from the off with being met at the airport and taxied off to the ship the whole week was just the best.
Sammeh our guide was very knowledgeable and the fact that most of the crew and the skipper are old hands of the M.Y Juliet is testament to it's popularity.
I was the rookie on the boat but the other divers said the food was the best they have ever had on any trip on the red sea, always fresh and a great variety even for the non meat eaters.
The diving was varied and wasn't just jumping off the boat and climbing back on, the ribs were used everyday, with different dives, making it not boring at all.
I could go on...
Once again fantastic service by the Oonas team, this time they managed to arrange trip around my only available dates using livaboard that wasn't on the advertised listing
Service from the Blue O Two team once in Egypt was great - from the moment we landed to departure
All the crew on the boat were brilliant, as was the livaboard itself - couldn't fault it
And the diving itself - well definately exceeded my expectations - hoped to see sharks but to get them on 10 of the 17 dives was amazing - and to get 16 hammerheads swimming all around you, some so close you could touch them, well it doesn't get much better - credit for much of this has to go to the guides (Luke & Tariq) who had a knack of dropping us in the perfect spot every time (in case you were wondering, the 7 non shark dives ...
everything perfect. boat, crew, dive master, organization, dive equipmemt everyone was gentle and helpfull
wir hatten die Tauchgänge vorher gebucht, während der diesjährigen Boot, 12 für 10. Wegen Sturm und starker Strömung konnten wir jedoch bloß 9 Tauchgänge machen. OK, in den Geschäftsbedingungen steht: "Nicht vollständig genutzte Tauchpakete werden nicht zurück erstattet." Wollten wir auch nicht. Aber mal ehrlich, was wäre es für ein Problem gewesen, wenn man uns für die entgangenen Tauchgänge eine Gutschrift für's kommende Jahr gegeben hätte. Die Antwort auf meine Anfrage gebe ich lieber nicht wieder.
Mal abgesehen von der Basisnutzung kostet eine Flaschenfüllung nur ein paar Cent. In den letzten acht Jahren haben wir zu zweit von dieser Basis aus über 250 Tauchgänge gemacht, da sollte doch so etwas möglich sein. Ich nenne es einfach Kundenbindung. Wir hätten auch einen Grund gehabt wie...
Eine sehr gute Basis wo eigentlich kaum ein Wunsch offen bleibt!Besonders hervorheben möchte ich die Crew die immer gute Laune haben und einem schon jeden "Wunsch" von den Augen ablesen,sei es beim aufrödeln oder abrödeln ,es ist immer jemand da der einem hilft !!!! Und das in keinster Weise zu aufdringlich! Das einzige Manko ist der defekte Bootssteg gewesen, da keine Ausflüge mit dem Boot unternommen werden konnten!! Ich würde gerne wiederkommen wenn das Hotel nicht so besch......en wäre!!!
Getting the ideal Dive Experience is a great feeling and few things compare the perfect dive. Having said that, everyone’s definition of a perfect dive greatly varies but one thing that would be useful to any diver is information.
Our reviews allow for users to meaningfully express their diving experience across a series of Dive Sites and a single Dive Shop.
We feel that reviews of various businesses and locations are some of the most valuable benefits that the internet has brought about. There are people that truly deliver a good service and take pride in the work they do and then there are those who are in for the short term profit. It is important to distinguish these businesses and reward the ones who deserve your money.
In the long run, we aim to become a central and objective body that centralizes user generated content and provides an easily usable database of information that will hopefully improve the quality of the industry as a whole and improve the user experience across the board.
