Liveaboard Safari Boats
The Red Sea is famous for – well just about everything! Historical wrecks, vertical and sloping reef walls, caverns and cracks, incredible hard and soft corals, little creatures, medium creatures and large creatures (fish), fish couples, fish families and large fish schools, and bright blue water, shallow and deep – really something for everyone. There is the very popular north, featuring the famous WWII wreck of the Thistlegorm and the incredible walls of Ras Mohammed, and more wrecks and walls and reefs. There is the centre with its outlying islands of The Brothers, and then there is the south, with islands, wrecks, walls and reefs, but often featuring the bigger pelagics due to less diver pressure, and of course quieter reefs. The south can also offer more dives during your stay due to less distances travelled between dive sites.
We have been fortunate enough to have travelled every year to the Red Sea for the past 20 years or more, and have seen and experienced many boats, big and small. More importantly, we have seen how some boat safari companies have reinvested every year back into their businesses and maintained constant and ever improving levels of quality, maintenance and service levels, and these are the companies that we continue to work with, ensuring the best for you. We proudly partner with Emperor Divers and The Sea Serpent Fleet.
Typical Northern Itinerary – can include the incredible WWII wreck of the Thistlegorm, the wrecks at Abu Nuhas, the walls of Ras Mohammed and the 4 islands of Tiran.

Typical week on board – getting on board your luxury safari liveaboard happens mostly in the late afternoon, with your first night being spent having a few sundowners as you are briefed for the week ahead. Then your next 6 days are all about cruising, diving, eating, resting and more diving. Included will be all your dives, meals, snacks, soft drinks, tea/coffee and drinking water. Evenings can be enjoyed sitting on the upper deck chatting to your fellow friends, sipping something cool or bubbling away on the beautiful night dives on offer. Often we find that we have to rest after a busy holiday – but not here, as a liveaboard safari is one of the best holidays for true rest and relaxation. And most of our boats offer free Nitrox to those suitably qualified.
