All our Red Sea liveaboards have oxygen, first aid and Emergency First Response trained staff. Safety is all important at Sharks Bay Umbi; all our guides and skippers are experienced in first aid and environmental protection and participate in regular further training programmes. We take a RIB for additional safety and to give us the opportunity to dive on reefs where the larger boats cannot go. We offer mini-liveaboards from 2 days / 1 night which are ideal for a Red Sea liveaboard trip to the famous wreck of SS Thistlegorm or for guests who want to experience life on-board but do not want to commit for more than a short break. A full week on-board will take you diving to the best sites in the Northern Red Sea such as the world famous sites in the Straits of Tiran and Ras Mohamed, the Straits of Gubal and Abu Nuhas. If you do not see an itinerary that suits you then we are happy to work with you to offer you a tailor-made Red Sea liveaboard trip to make your scuba diving holiday in the Red Sea one to remember.
