It goes without saying that we need time to load the boats, to clean and do small maintenance. We ask for your cooperation on arrival day that check in can not be before 06:00 p.m. and the check out 10:00 a.m. at the latest. If you check in before 06:00 p.m., please have consideration for the crew if they are still cleaning or loading the boat. Because of organizational or technical reasons, perhaps you will have to stay in a hotel for the last night as our guest.

In the afternoon one day before departure, the boat will enter the harbour. The luggage will be brought from the storage to prepare all your personal things. The details for the return journey will be given to you from the staff of Seawolf Diving Safari.

On board

As soon as you arrive at the landing place you will go on board. There you have to take off your shoes for the whole stay on board (don't forget warm socks or sailing shoes). After this you can put your dive equipment in your dive box and put away the rest of your luggage in the cabin. The crew will store the empty suitcases until your departure. One small and one big bath towel is available in all cabins. Both will be changed once in the middle of the safari. During the cold season there is also a bathing robe for each customer. In the evening your responsible and personal tour guide will make a briefing about the boat, safety, diving, and give you general information.

To enter the salon or the cabins with dive equipment is prohibited, please don't wear wet swimming clothes in the salon.

Each cabin has portholes. Please make sure that they are closed during travelling. Objects of value, for example computer, cameras, or mobile phones please secure in the cupboard, that there is no damage in case of water ingress. In Egypt there is no appropriate insurance, so there will be no refund.

In case you want to sleep on deck, you should bring a sleeping bag and earflaps with you. It is not allowed to bring mattresses out of the cabin, but you can use a mattress on the sun deck.

Please don't throw toilet paper or any other sanitary rubbish into the toilet. Use the basket beside because the toilet can be stopped up. To fix it during the safari is most of time not possible and you will be disturbed by the dirt and bad smell. Also the paper that is drifting on the reefs disturbs the pleasure of diving. Please use sparingly soap and shower gel because the waste water goes directly in the sea. In some shops you can find already biodegradable products.

There is no smoking in the salon, in the cabins and on the dive deck. Please use the available ash-trays and don't throw the stub over board.

There are 3 meals per day served as buffet while on board. The breakfast usually consists of bread, toast, pancakes, jam, honey, and yogurt, different variations of eggs, Nescafe and tea. For the main meal, chicken, beef or fish will be served as well as garnishing rice, noodles, potatoes and different kind of vegetables and salads. For dessert we offer pudding, cakes or fruits. During the safari there is Nescafe, tea, water, Cola, Sprite and juices available free of charge. Not included are alcoholic liquors and drinks in cans. The catering starts with the dinner on the first day and ends with the breakfast on the last day.
It is not allowed to bring own beer to the boat, but there is enough beer and wine available on board.

On board you will find only reduced medicine. Please bring your own small first aid with you. Make sure that the medication is compatible for diving. Every customer must have a travel insurance, we should know the company and the insurance-no. before arrival. If you don’t have an insurance yet, you can do this on our homepage (Aquamed - Button here on the left side).

After common breakfast you will start to the famous drop off reefs in the Red Sea and to reefs which are really secret. In the afternoon there are wrecks on the order of the day as well as glamorous labyrinths, mysterious caves, and magnificent underwater gardens. If this is not enough, you can end the day in a cozy night dive. On all SeaWolf Boats the care on board and under water is followed by a professional tour guide. All of them have had knowledge of the Red Sea for many years and know the reefs very well.

As like in all Arabic countries, the hospitality has a high priority and that's why all visitors are expected that they follow and respect the rules of an Arabic country.
With consideration of local population, it is not allowed to lay topless on the sun deck or walk around undressed.
