Our friends at UK-based dive tour operator Scuba Travel have some great new offers available:
Hurricane is Back in April – Loyalty Offers
Scuba Travel are so excited that Hurricane is just about to emerge from an extended dry dock. According to Tornado Marine, she is on track to be in the water by the 2nd April ready for her sea trials. This award winning liveaboard worked exceptionally hard last year and has really been given some extra love and attention. Bathrooms have been replaced as has the air con system, and a new outdoor seating area is amongst just some of the updates. So many of you love this liveaboard and keep going back on her. Partly because of her superb crew and Captain – who will be back this year. And partly because she is just the right boat in the right place for the best diving in the Red Sea.
If you travelled on Hurricane in 2017 Scuba Trave will gve you an extra 10% off the advertised price for any May or April departures and if you’re a loyalty club member you’ll get another 10% off that too!
Example: 25th April is on offer for £1165. If you travelled on her in 2017, you only pay £1048.50. If you are a loyalty member and have travelled on her in 2017, you only pay £943.65.
