The best way to see as much as possible underwater in the shortest possible time is to go on a diving safari. Usually, you can manage 18-20 dives during a seven-day tour (depending on tour operator, country and route).
DIVE - EAT - SLEEP - DIVE - EAT - SLEEP
The daily routine on a diving safari boat is very regimented: Dive, eat, sleep, dive, eat, sleep. I took my first tour in 2014 with the Seawolf Dominator in Egypt:
I made it through the safari very well, actually losing some weight despite all the food (what more can a girl ask for?), took great photos, and arrived home well rested… where I immediately started thinking about my next trip. And this
is how I ended up cruising around the Maldives on the Carpe Diem in 2015:
I felt so relaxed after one week as if I had been gone for three. I can’t imagine life without this kind of holiday anymore.
How about you? Have you ever been on a diving safari? If so, which boat were you on? Or are you already planning a safari, or still just thinking about it?
I look forward to hearing from you.

I've just found your website via google. I really like it! I've never dived before but reading your blog makes me feel as if I've missed some great experience.

Really nice website you got, there! I've only ever been on organised daytrips from the mainland (Red Sea, Egypt), the "safari" aspect sounds like a real adventure...Must be cool to wake up and have breakfast on board (with beautiful views)? But what is it like sharing a room on a boat that size like? Isn't it too cramped?

You definitely should try a liveaboard trip some time. It's wonderful in Egypt. The rooms are very large - there is always enough space for two people (depends on your luggage ;-)). I will be writing a report about my first liveaboard trip in Egypt soon. Stay tuned. :-) Mona

Cool, I had already seen your photos from Egypt...Looking forward to read about your firsthand experience diving in the Red Sea! (it's been a while for me ;)

Hey Eddie, thank you very much! Hope you will enjoy Bali too next month ;-) Hugs, Mona

Yeah, I am ;) (already commented on your spa video). I really like the mix of your underwater and "onshore" photos, especially the vintage look on some of them (intentional?). A nice touch, anyway...
