The final day was spent off the boat. After docking in Hurgarda we all took an organised excursion that included buggy and quad biking, a jeep journey into the desert to visit a Bedouin encampment. An amazing show including dancers and a strongmen act followed by a delicious buffet meal sat on the floor on rugs and all topped off, of course, with a camel ride....

Three dives today; dive site The Brothers, two small rock formations that just break the surface of the ocean and drop down hundreds of meters. The first dive on big brother was down to the wreck Numidia precariously hanging at between 30 and 60 meters on the side of the plateaus slope. Here I filmed a huge playful grouper and a large turtle along with large shoals of smaller fish.

This he achieved by developing the natural landscape into amazing places for visitors and by ed...

He told me that he had always been passionate about the oceans and had worked as a diving instructor in various places around the world. He...
