    Usually go Sharm/Dahab area so new to us hard coral was quite poor in places and the soft coral was sparse but good.

    Usual fish to be seen but plenty of Giant Moray and Turtles.

    Salem Express was a reasonable dive as was Hashish lagoon and and the hotel reef was quite exceptional.

    Dived with PDL divers who were quite good as we could go unguided and if guided could stay until our air ran out plenty of 70 to 80 minute single tank dives.

    Good trip but wouldn't go back to this area

    Ha ha no just point and shoot camera with no filter at about 15/20m I have better footage on my go pro but have an issue with recovering the film got some great shots of Salem Express and a free swimming giant Moray, a face to face encounter with a blue spotted stingray, more turtle and all the usual stuff.

    I cant be arsed with all the strobes and filters ect (although I do have one for the go pro) I prefer just to shoot if it comes out then great.

    Fair play Iain. The image of the turtle is really nice. :thumb:
