Our best Red Sea Jol holiday

On the 16th of August, my husband and I got a plane at OR Tambo with a few friends of ours from Adventure Mania to go on the most amazing Red Sea Jol, dive holidays ever.

We arrived at Hurgada airport on the 17th of August where we were greeted at the airport by one of the friendliest smiles and most organised service ever. We took a quick bus drive to the Hurgada Marina were the Galaxy awaited us. After getting on the live-aboard we had a quick briefing and set off to the first diving spot.
We spent 7 days aboard this amazing boat, diving 3 times a day and eating way too much food. We conquered a lot of fears during this holiday. Sharks, wrecks & night dives. After a few days my ears started acting up with the multiple dives so I decided a sit out a few dives and document moments to show you.
So, let the journey begin.

Have you ever seen so much sand?

Hallo Galaxy

Good-bye Hurgada

Red Sea sunsets are the best.

Brothers Island – This is where the sharks like to hang out.

Post dive, happy, satisfied smiles.

Back on the bus for our trip to the most amazing hotel in Hurgada.

We spent one night at the Albatros Palace Resort before our flight to Cairo.  Definitely a Palace as you will see.

We spent most of the day hanging around the pool bar drinking cocktails.

Welcome to Cairo.

We went inside this pyramid to have a look at the tomb.  It was amazing & incredibly hot. Unfortunately no camera’s permitted.

We spent the rest of the day in Cairo visiting the Egyptian Museum. We had a whole lesson about essence at The Egyptian Perfume Palace, after that we made a quick stop at the Papyrus Factory where they showed us how to make papyrus. We ended the day at one of Cairo’s famous markets.
After our 21hour day exploring and making memories we all slept the whole flight back to SA. Exhausted but content. This is one holiday we will never forget. Thank you, Adventure Mania, for introducing us to the Red Sea Jol. It was A JOL FOR ALL!
