    Hurghada dive centres and something else?

    Hi folks,

    My niece and her boyfriend are going to Hurghada in March and want to do a try dive and possibly OW. Does anyone have recommendations for dive centres or places to avoid? Have to admit I’m more nervous about my baby niece (she’s 24 ) diving than I was when I learned, so really want them to be well looked after. Stacey’s done a couple of pool sessions with us and is a natural underwater but Derek’s never dived at all.

    Also her boyfriend plans to propose, if he can wait until then, lol. Is there anywhere particularly romantic/special for them? It will be a surprise for Stacey.

    They’re staying in the very far North End of Hurghada at Sea Star Beau Rivage.

    Thanks in advance, xxx.

    Hi,

    Last time I was out in Hurghada I did a couple of dives with DivePoint. German outfit, very well run and lovely dives.

    Have you ever come across a guy called Mitch Bergsma on youtube that does GoPro stuff?

    He organised a dive with his girlfriend such that they found a small treasure chest with an engagement ring inside ...

    I used New Son Bijou when I went to Hurghada. http://www.bijoudiving.com/ViewPage.aspx?PageID=1
    Ahmed is a lovely guy and I'd use them again in the unlikely event that I go back there.

    Is there a diving center at the hotel? I found this website: https://seastarbeaurivage.business.site/

    Or maybe at one of the nearby big hotels? Hurghada stretches for such a long way south, it would be good to get a reputable diving center nearby.

    Love the idea about a treasure chest with a ring. If she could cope with that being underwater for the first time?

    Or a trip into the desert to propose?

    Or Orange Bay? I haven't been there. I think it is part of Mahmeya Island which is a regular trip from Hurghada, though different types of trips. I think there are a lot of weddings at Orange Bay so it looks romantic.
