We had gone there about 2 months ago from Dahab as part of a 3 dive package and that time we had to end the dive early because 3 idiots in our group ****** up. One went 10 metres too deep immediately after we all dove in, another got confused and wandered off to join another dive group and the 3rd dove with a bad sinus cold, had problems with his ...
