Then working along side Duxy at Cameras Underwater and Ocean Leisure in London.

For those divers newer to photography and needing advise on just where to start he's a god send!

7 nights full board with 18-20 fully guided dives and return flights to Marsa Alam

Sublime reef diving in the southern Red Sea with the most experienced team. Stretching south from Marsa Alam to within a breath of the Sudanese border, get face to face with the remarkable diversity that makes the deep south so rich and rewarding for divers. Walls, shallow caves, softly draped pinnacles are all on the menu alongside pelagic encounters. Marvel at the beauty and splendour on one of the most special  southern Red Sea liveaboard holidays.

This is a great holiday for anyone interested in underwater photography (or if you are just not feeling confident about using your camera!).

There is yoga in the morning which is suitable for all levels including complete beginners, yoga nidra (sleeping yoga) at night under the stars, and as much freediving and scuba as you like the rest of the time! For Scuba divers there's also the chance to dip your toe into the world of freediving with a FREE Try Freediving Course worth £75! For freedivers you can freedive recreationally or take a course.

Cyclone is a Red Sea favourite who has been upgraded over the years and easily accomodates 20 divers. The spcaious dive deck allowa everyone space to kit up and their is plenty of choice for where to relax between dives including the extensive sun deck with jacuzzi or the upstairs saloon with bar and plasma screen.
The Northern Red Sea fish count is huge, particularly in the areas of Ras Mohammed and Tiran, with large schools of fish from the Batfish and Snappers at Shark Reef and clouds of Anthias and smaller schooling fish up in Tiran, but you will see more abundance of marine life everywhere with wrecks like the Thistlegorm covered in swarms of Fusiliers being chased by Trevallies with languid Batfish hanging out in the blue.
Includes 10 nights full board (inc alcohol with your evening meal), average of 4 fully guided tender dives per day, return flights to Male and a one way domestic flight.
Carpe Vita goes above and beyond the usual Maldives liveaboard. At a generous 38m in length and a whopping 10m breadth, she's as spacious as she is well laid out. Carpe Vita has plenty of space for everyone. See for yourself the attention to detail that makes Carpe Vita a well loved liveaboard with divers. As all of the diving takes place on the dedicated dive dhoni (tender boat), the space on board Carpe Vita is incredible. On the main deck you will find a large lounge area. Help yourself to tea, coffee, soft drinks and dispensed water throughout the day. There is a wide screen TV and audio system with an area set aside for charging camera batteries. All meals are served al fresco on board. Tuck into the fine food prepared by the on board chef. The fly deck is expansive, with a covered area, jacuzzi as well as a sun loungers. Or relax while you watch for dolphins at the fore deck sitting area.
The Maldives Seasonal Sensations itinerary wends its way between Male and Baa atolls, cherry picking the highlight dive sites for that season. Timing is everything - dive the east side of the atolls, when sites that are at their seasonal hottest for sharks, manta and gorgeous coral reefs.  Though the visibility is often decreased, the increased plankton means it can be the best time and place in the Maldives to see manta rays and whalesharks.
