Important Update: Flexible booking & cancellation terms now offered by this operator. Find out more »
The beautiful MSY Elegante is a traditional wooden schooner offering diving trips in Djibouti from November - January each year. During this special time of the year the seas are full of plankton-rich nutrients and whale sharks stop off in Djibouti as part of their annual migration to feed in these waters. Besides whale sharks, divers may also encounter manta rays, as well as diving spectacular reefs and wrecks, far from the Red Sea crowds.
Topside the MS/Y Elegante caters to just 14 guests in 7 cabins. Each cabin features double or twin beds, private bathrooms and AC. Communal areas include the indoor lounge with entertainment area, and covered outdoor lounge and dining area, a great place to relax and enjoy the sea breeze and amazing views.

Very nice boat and great crew!
Whalesharks, beautiful coral (very untouched) and the boat is very nice. Somehow the staff on the boat wasn't aware that we were renting equipment, which resulted in poor fitting fins for me (had to wear three pairs of socks to make them fit). Not the staff's fault but somewhere in communication it went wrong... The equipment itself is quite pricy for the quality, I even had one dive where one of my hoses exploded so I had to share a tank with the dive master...
