Safaga, Soma Bay, On-Board Camera

It's a nice spot. Offshore wind like on Isla Coche.
We went there upwind from Safaga.
Watch the video (with on-board camera):

if it is per day, it is a lot.

If it is per week:

- 7x rescue
- use of compressor daily
- launch helper
- storage (not sure if included)
- hot shower (last time I was there daily a truck with water came, since no pipes are existing)
- toilet
- sun chairs

and that would be VERY cheap.

NO TOBY IT'S PER DAY AND THAEY ARE VERY ANOYING BECAUSE WHEN WE ARRIVED THEY WERE BOTHERING US ALL THE TIME FOR THE MONEY :angryfire:

I FORGOT TO SAY THAT A GIRL WITH US DIDN'T KITED CAUSE SHE IS A ROOKIE AND THEY REFUSE TO GIVE BACK THE 20 EUR..

IN THE END OF THE THE DAY AFTER A LOT OF PRESSURE THEY GAVE BACK 10 EUR AS A MINIMUM CHARGE FOR THE FACILITY USAGE :?:

OTHER CLUBS CHARGE 6-10 PER DAY

ok, thx for the info. That is quiet a lot. I might be down there in a few weeks, then I will ask and have a discussion with the general manager...I know him and will give him some feedback of what I heard.
Not sure if it helps, but at least I can try.

PS: yes, please write without caps lock on...much easier to read. thx!

sorry for the capslock guys.

Toby please do that because the behavour of them reminds us that monopolium destroys the quality!!

Ok the quality of the facilities are very good but why charging so much??

Every body knows that they pay almost nothing to run the place (average egyptian salary per month is 50 eur)!!

Thanks in advance

unfortunately it is not only the beach boys they have to pay...it is a venture, where they invested a lot of money into the building (all wood, did you ever see a tree in Egypt?), cleaning the beach, salaries, boat, other investments etc.
All this needs to be paid for, unfortunately. But again, 20 is quiet a lot of money. So for sure I will talk to him and listen to what he has to say.
