They Called it Clowns Week. They certainly were!

It all started last year when three divers got together and decided to have a bit of extra fun on their dive holiday. Ian, Sarah and Cindy. 

Cindy also know as Cinders, who you may have seen at the dive shows as she's one of the regular staff on our stand. Sarah covered for an absentee on the stand earlier this year at LIDS and Ian also know as Ianto has been diving with us since we started. 

The three all met while diving with us in Sharm, when they struck up a friendship with each other, and tend to all come back at the same time to dive together. 

Last year, they decided to have a few theme days which I think is very sporting of Ianto due to his senior years, although he looks and keeps well for a man about to turn 60.

The themes were Super Hero Thursday and Tutu Tuesday.

Cinders had plans of topping that this year and went about to gather a posse.

Cinders kept in touch with most of the people she had met while diving with elite in Sharm over the years, and put out a call to see if anyone wanted to join her on her dive holiday during May 2014.

The posse wasn't long gathering momentum and it was decided to have a clowns theme for at least one of the days.

It was hilarious. The sight of colourful clowns walking around the boat all day was a scream!

The clowns even donned diving equipment and dived in full clowns outfit

Although it was a great laugh, the briefing had to be taken serious. The guide, who was also dressed up as a clown, found it difficult to keep a straight face. He managed to get the points over and then the hilarity started in earnest.

During the dive, a lone dolphin joined us. It seemed to be mocking the clowns as he swam past. It came back to look at the group of clowns time and time again, as if it couldn't believe it's eyes!

Can anybody name the one in the Gimp suite? 

Anyone remember the ministry of funny walks?

A group photo wasn't too difficult to organise underwater. One signal form the guide and the clowns just gathered round.

The most colourful guide in the Red Sea.
