Hi
Have booked a week onboard the GSS doing 'Simply the Best' departing 19th October and just wondered if any of you were doing the same trip? This is my 6th time to Egypt but whilst not my 1st liveaboard trip it will be my 1st in Egypt.

Also; I normally dive in a 3mm shortie and have no issues with sea temp but I normally holiday a little earlier in the year so ny Q is: will I be ok with sticking to the norm or should I pack my 5mm full suit?

Thank you in advance of your replies.
Kasha

Hi Kasha... went to Hurgarda in Nov 2006 and was dayboat diving and I found that a 3mm full was sufficient. However, on a return trip in april this year doing the same sort of diving I got quite chilly towards the middle of the week so used my shortie over my full suit. In retrospect, I'd take take the thicker suit if I were you..... have fun and dive safe
