'In Focus' Photography Workshops...
blue o two are pleased to offer you EXCLUSIVE LIVEABOARD PHOTOGRAPHIC WORKSHOPS hosted by Saeed Rashid.
A lecturer at Bournemouth University and popular speaker at UK dive shows, Saeed will guide you through the underwater photography process from start to finish. He will not only help you to develop your skills to spot and frame your subject to its full potential underwater, but also show you how to polish your images using a variety of simple postproduction techniques when back onboard.
Over the course of the liveaboard week, there is plenty of time to learn new skills and the warm, clear waters of the Red Sea provide the perfect environment to practice! You don't even need to own a camera to get involved - you can hire all equipment from blue o two!

'HAYAH' Reef Clean-up Itinerary...
We are pleased to be running reef clean-up safaris in the North of the stunning Red Sea in support of marine conservation and HEPCA's 'HAYAH' campaign.
'HAYAH' meaning 'life' in Arabic, is HEPCA's most ambitious environmental project yet, aiming to involve all sections of the Red Sea community to work towards; raising awareness, education and responsibility and active participation.
As divers we recognise that our activity can have a negative effect on the marine environment and we feel it is our duty to minimise our impact as much as we can and reduce damage wherever possible. In short - we want to give something back to the beautiful oceans that we love!
If you feel the same way then you should join our HAYAH reef clean up safari - not only will you enjoy a week of fantastic liveaboard diving, you will have the opportunity to help clean the reefs and attend informal seminars to learn a little bit more about coral reefs and marine conservation!
