Sometimes, the second day is always better than the first day as seen with my first and second fishing trips to Scotland have shown. But in diving, it’s more of the fact that if you haven’t gone diving in awhile, then the second day gets you more acclimated to the gear, diving conditions, boat, personnel, and running schedule. In other words, you’re getting that rhythm down so you’re more in-sync and can dive better. That’s what I think. So this second day of diving was awesome. Saw a lot more fish out there than usual and was more comfortable after seeing how the diver operators run the boat and how they dive.
And I’ve stated before, always be on the lookout above, below, and around you. Because sometimes you see the unusual even if you’ve gone diving many times underwater.
So the Red Sea is a great place especially for Europeans to go to since it’s relatively close, somewhat cheap (cheaper than some places in Europe), and it’s generally sunny most of the time down there. All that makes for a pretty good combination for Europeans who might want to get out of the snow and cold during the winter times. So one recommendation is to check when are the high and low tourist seasons because when I was out there, I could count 20 dive boats moving about in the area. However, one guy told me that he went down there during winter vacation (Christmas, New Year’s) and the Red Sea was just packed with boats and tourists. Not all of them were there for diving but you gotta compete with snorkelers, passenger yachts, luxury yachts, tour groups on boats, etc. Some dive spots do get overloaded that there are times where people didn’t see any big fish because they got scared off by the large amount of people in the water.Follow me on Instagram:
