I was in Sharm in april, and I would do a lot of things differently next
It doesn't matter so much which operation you choose, but I strongly
recommend that you arrange a live-aboard to get the most out of your time
We were stolen from, lied to and yet we had a good trip there.
To get away from all the hastlles and fully relax you should go on a boat
and don't come back before you want to leave Sharm. There is nothing of
interest in Sharm - in my opinion.
A live-aboard does not have to be expensive at all, and you can arrange one
with people you would like to be with. We paid around US$110 per person per
day including the boat fuel, dive master, food, soft drinks, all the dives
you can fit in, tanks and weights. Take in consideration what you would have
spent on hotel and food on land.
My diving buddy and I put down a couple of words of advice that I wish we
had had before going. The advice and a diving map of the area and photos and
diving profiles can be found at:
Have a good trip!
