Captain of MY JP Marine Mohammed Hassan, one of the most experience boat driver of the Red sea, safety of the boat is his first priority. Mechanic Ahmed is the one that you will definitely remember ! The real professional who joined our company more than 10 years ago and has amazing reputation between clients; he is the one who is always full of energy and creates atmosphere on dive deck! Ahmed maintain the technical situation of the boat and also is responsible for full-filling the air before dive (and Nitrox of course!). You can find our general saloon manager Mubarak was captured during performing of his duties at the bar in sun deck – he is the one who is always here to help and keep the boat clean and safe.
Security measures aboard (shark-areas) :
All scuba diving activities conducted in shark-infested areas adhere strictly to the established regulations set forth by the Hurghada Environmental Protection and Conservation Association (HEPCA) and the Chamber of Diving and Water Sports (CDWS). We meticulously ensure compliance with all official requirements and promptly make any necessary adjustments as per the guidelines provided. In order to maintain a proactive approach, we maintain regular and direct communication with the CDWS, allowing us to closely monitor the prevailing conditions at sea.
Some of the examples of the rules we follow: organizing dives with sharks exclusively in large groups, this strategic approach creates an illusion of increased size, effectively reducing the perception of individual divers as potential prey to the sharks. Immediately submersion is imperative. Remaining on the surface, engaging in surface swimming, or snorkeling in areas inhabited by sharks is strictly prohibited.
- All our dive guides are required to hold a mandatory PADI Shark Aware certificate. This certification ensures that our guides possess the necessary knowledge and understanding of shark behavior, ecology, and conservation. It equips them with the expertise to provide a safe and informative experience for our guests. In addition to their Shark Aware certification, our dive guides boast extensive years of experience in conducting shark dives within the context of liveaboard trips.
- During our trips to shark-inhabited areas, we provide comprehensive briefings to all participants. These briefings are conducted in strict accordance with the official protocols established by both the Hurghada Environmental Protection and Conservation Association (HEPCA) and the Chamber of Diving and Water Sports (CDWS). Our briefings are designed to ensure that divers are well-informed and prepared for encounters with sharks.
- Our boat holds an official license for operation, which is granted by the Red Sea Police and renewed on a seasonal basis. This license serves as a testament to our compliance with all relevant regulations and safety standards set forth by the authorities. To ensure the utmost safety and adherence to regulations, our boat and crew undergo a mandatory inspection conducted by the Red Sea Police before each departure. This comprehensive check is designed to assess the boat’s seaworthiness, emergency equipment, and compliance with all required safety measures. Only upon successfully passing this inspection do we receive a departure permit, allowing us to embark on our diving expeditions.
