Liveaboards: Diving Full Immersion!

A multi-day live-aboard safari in the Red Sea is definitely the ultimate diving experience. A live-aboard vessel enables you to the remote reefs and rarely dived wrecks. You can make up to four dives a day, including night dives.Your gear is always ready at hand for that rare, once in a lifetime opportunity to dive with dolphins or whale sharks.

Depending on the routes and kind of safari, you might be required to have a minimum of logged dives and an advanced diver certification. In Egypt, some safari destinations are in fact only for experienced divers. Others are suitable though also for medium-experience divers.

Many Red Sea live-aboard boats are renowned for their comfort, convenience and safety: private air-conditioned cabins, deliciously cooked meals, professional photography services, modern communication and navigation systems.

Live-aboard cruises depart throughout the year from Sharm el Sheikh, Hurghada, Safaga, Marsa Alam, Port Ghaleb, and other minor ports. The most popular itineraries are:

  • North Red Sea, diving in the legendary Straits of Tiran and Gubal with dives at the Ras Mohammed National Park
  • North Wrecks, special for “wreckies”, with the awesome Abu Nuhas ship graveyard (Giannis D., Chrisoula K., Carnatic and Kimon M.) and the fabled Thistlegorm. Some also dive the Rosalie Muller and the Dunraven.
  • South Marine Park, with the most spectacular underwater life in the Red Sea, diving at the amazing reefs of Elphinstone, Samadai, Sha’ab Makhsour, Sha’ab Claude, Sataya and St. John.
  • Deep South, heading towards the remote and legendary Rocky and Zabargad Islands.
  • The Brother Islands, in the very middle of the Red Sea, jutting out of the depths in a wealth of pelagics and reef fauna.

The following Liveaboard boats have been met ISO standards EN 14467 / ISO 24803 for diving as agreed with Egypt’s CDWS, the Austrian Institute of Norms and the European Underwater Federation.
