Red Sea Cleanup (Jan 2012)

by Laurence.

Saturday 28th January – Thursday 2nd February, 2012 : 10 of us (Bob, Chris H, Duncan, Geoff, Ian, Laurence, Mary, Mike, Neil, Sue R) went off to the Red Sea to take part in a massive cleanup operation that just happened to involve diving – perfect match!

The trip was organised through blue o two and was aboard one of their liveaboards: The M/Y Blue Melody,  5* diving live-aboard with large dining area, separate sky lounge with state of the art entertainment system and double and twin cabins all benefiting from en-suite facilities, air conditioning and personal entertainment systems. A spacious dive deck makes kitting up and getting in the water a stress free experience.
