latest update as of 23rd October 2016.
Just completed long weekend in Rabiqh, according to my Philipino Crew when there is a full moon the current and tide is very high, well there was a full moon, the sea level was the same but the current on every reef and there are only Five hence the name the Five Sisters was outrages just like peddling a bicycle have never seen that before, one time in Al-Wedje with Aramco i had a great drift dive going South but in Rabiqh they were going North and scary thinking about diver pick up,
I and Doc were the ones to buck the system diving without between us a S.M.B. i can now tell you the honest Gods truth, every group i dive with in future will carry one and it would be great if every diver would do so.
On the third dive of the second day Doc and i we were standing on the reef for 33 min the current took us along the wall so fast that knowing we were putting distance between us and the Liveabard that we did surface after 30 min, our decision to stand on the reef was the possibility of the current on the surface taking even us further away, along the reef wall or out from the reef, the crew and the guests remaining on board noticed us but as we were standing solid and not moving they thought we were corral heads (we were standing solid in case we got bowled over by the waves breaking in that section of the reef) hence no dancing and waving of arms, there was no Danger of not getting picked up as when a S.M.B. with another group did surface opposite our position the liveaboard and the pick up Zodiac left the mooring location immediately coming to the S.M.B. location.
The conclusion to this story is, it does not matter if you have 1 or 1,000 dives, current or no current carry a S.M.B.
The Dive sites were out of this world on Maria Plateau you could not see the hard corral for soft corral, you could not see the soft corral for reef fish on the tip of the Plateau at 42 meters two grey sharks dozens of Big Eye Jacks and two Giant Travally, in fact G.T. were seen on every dive site, Sharks on three sites even with the temperature at 30 deg C.
On the way home to Jeddah we departed Rabiqh at 01:30 in the morning and arrived at Abu-Madafi at 0600hrs dived the Boiler Wreck and the caves behind, exited the reef South turned North back to the wreck and carried on North to the African Wreck, final Dive was Champagne and the sand eels break dancing, also a anomaly as the site is just like Rabiqh but in Jeddah area, soft and hard corrals with vibrant colors and thousands of reef fish the difference between the Madafi Wrecks reef and Champagne is chalk and cheese or to put it bluntly rubbish and beautiful.
With best regards

Saudi Arabia having the longest coastline of any country bordering the Red Sea, the Eastern seaboard of the Red Sea certainly has some of the most exiting diving to be found, unlike Egypt, Saudi Arabia has two Liveaboard dive boats and one Liveaboard operator, therefore ensuring no other Dive boats, a fact that still after four years of successful operation, thanks to God, our guests still remark upon.
thank you for your support
