    Much as I would love to go on JB's Komodo trip, the dates don't work for me. However I do want to do a liveaboard this year, and have settled on a return trip to Egypt with Red Sea Explorers on mv Tala. I have submitted a booking request for 21st-28th July for my self and my son, and it would be brilliant if we could get a bigger UKD contingent. This would be a revivification of an ancient UKD tradition...

    Have a look on ancient threads:
    http://ukdivers.com/threads/annual-red-sea-explorers-trip-mv-tala-6th-july-2012.11403/
    and
    http://ukdivers.com/threads/red-sea-explorers-mv-tala-1st-july-2011.9489/
    http://ukdivers.com/threads/mv-tala-2011.10701/
    and

    http://ukdivers.com/threads/mv-tala-july-2010.8135/
    and
    http://ukdivers.com/threads/ukd-tala-trip-6-13-july-2009.4513/
    for an idea of some of the hi-jinks.

    Costs at the moment: Boat is €915 and flights out of Gatwick to Hurghada on Easyjet are around £700.
    So not cheap, but this is one of the best tec/rec boats out there, run by a crazy guy who does some serious diving (120metres on RB, caves, monkey diving, free diving and undewater maintenance on the Red Sea Wrecks ).

    And Tala has scooters!

    Scooters.... must have scooters...

    Been given permission for a foreign dive trip this year. You may well have tempted me away from diving in the cold!

    Assume the flights are to Hurgada?

    I would dearly love to come but with a trip to Malta in May and a few other weekends planned away from the kiddie I’d be a bit of shit dad if I did.
