introduction

The Red Sea offers some of the best scuba diving you will ever do. With so much on offer you might expect to pay an arm and a leg, but the reality is that a Red Sea live aboard dive holiday is one of the best value for money scuba dive destinations out there. With at least 20 dives to look forward to you will be amazed at the stunning underwater world you will encounter. Explore amazing wrecks like the Thistlegorm or the Ras Mohammed National Marine Park and discover an exciting new world.

Everything about this trip has been designed with the emphasis on excellent dives, comfort, and a value for money luxury experience.

The live aboard yacht that we use has a 5 star rating and offers all the creature comforts you would expect including mouth-watering food! (see pictures in our gallery below) 

This is truly a luxurious experience. These dives epitomises comfort and ease, As you sleep, eat, or relax, the ship is busy sailing to the next dive spot! They drop you off and collect you with Zodiacs if the dive site is inaccessible for the yacht to make you scuba diving as comfortable as possible.

This holiday trip is also the ultimate way to relax – divers often remark afterwards that all they did was dive, eat, and sleep.

Below you will find more details on this amazing trip.
