We have to thanks everybody who has voted for us so far. This has pushed us up to 7th place in the Dive Center Resort Awards so far, but there's still time for us to climb higher or even slip back down.
For those of you who still intend to vote and haven't got around to it yet, your vote can make a massive difference to the outcome as we are told that the top ten places are all very close.
I know life gets in the way of doing things sometimes, but if you could just place your vote (whoever it is for) (I hope it's us), this could make a big difference at the end of the month when the winners are announced.
We need all the help we can get. Thank you.

Pixie hawkfish (Cirrhitichthys oxycephalus)
Really difficult subject, every time I pressed the shutter it moved, I now have lots of pictures of empty coral, but finally managed to get him/her
White-banded cleaner shrimp (Lysmata amboinensis)
with Durban dancing shrimp (Rhynchocinetes durbanensis) @ Sharm el-Sheikh
Yellow lip shield slug (Celidonura flavolobata)
The location I found this on was unusual, Woodhouse reef, mostly found in sheltered areas away from currents.
It seemed happy enough to pose for a photo
Brown slate pencil urchin (Brown Hertrocentrotus mamillatus)
Nocturnal between 1metre - 25 metres, crawling out of cracks in the reef, commonly seen on night dives around Sharm el sheik, they feed mainly on algae, or sessile (immobile) animals.
Taken with my Olympus TG-5 using built in flash; set to fill in.
Blue cheek butterfly fish (Chaetodon semilarvatus) usually found in pairs in nooks and crannies along reefs 2m -20m depth.
Whitespotted Puffer (Arothron hispidus)
We Need Your Vote
There's very little time left to get voting for DIVE Travel Awards.
We'd like to thank everyone who has voted for us so far, you've put us at mid-table so far. There is still time left for those who haven't got around to it yet to make your vote count.
At the moment, we are just behind two other Red Sea Dive centers. We are used to being higher, and with the amazing year we've had, and the awesome team we have, we hope you can help to put us closer to the top. I know our team deserve to be there. They work so hard although they enjoy every minute. They've seen so many great marine animals this year and they get as much joy seeing the look on the faces of our guests when something spectacular appears.
So if you haven't got around to voting yet, and you intend to, please do so now. Don't put it off for later if you'd like us to be further up the list.
Hope to see you out in Sharm for more diving soon.
