Our Boat carries oxygen, first aid equipment, life jackets, life buoys, 2 rafts each for 20-person, satellite and radio communication equipment and Marine Navigation system. Our safety procedures aboard ensure a smooth, safe and efficient trip to the dive sites however far they are in the red sea region.

One difference is that some diving company do not tell you about all the costs involved. So, when you make the booking, it costs a certain amount, and when you get to the dive trip, you have to pay for different extras which make the difference in the end. Be careful, if the price sounds very cheap it might not include everything. You might end up paying more than you expected.
The cost we quote is the price you pay, there are no hidden extras.
Another reason is that many companies do not invest in top quality instructors. HBDS has the best quality dive staff to ensure that your diving experience is a great adventure.
We have good quality, safe and well-maintained equipment, as well as insurance, Luxury boat, and put safety and high-quality service as top priorities.
