To join a Red Sea liveaboard diving holiday, divers should be a minimum of PADI Advanced Open Water (or equivalent) with a minimum of 30 logged dives.


With 3 or more dives a day, you’ll have ample opportunity to discover the stunning underwater world of the Red Sea. Our experienced guides and skippers are passionate about sharing their knowledge of the marine life and underwater landscapes, and will take you to the most pristine and untouched dive sites that are inaccessible to day boats. Plus, with a RIB on board, we can get even closer to the reefs and wrecks, allowing you to discover hidden gems that other divers never see.

Our comfortable and simply furnished cabins provide the perfect sanctuary after a day of diving. You’ll wake up to the sound of the waves lapping against the hull, ready for another day of adventure. And with fresh, locally sourced food prepared daily by our fabulous chefs, you’ll enjoy delicious meals.
