Wonderful underwater adventure at Seven Brothers on the Lucy

Finding a nurse shark sleeping under a ledge, losing count of the number of moray eels and sea cucumbers we had seen, watching about fifteen dolphins joyfully swim around us, several face-to-face encounters with sea turtles, really good visibility at Seven Brothers, fascinating topography underwater, great hike to the top of one of the islands, wonderful excursion to Lac Assal on our final day before returning (paid separately), smooth logistics and really friendly staff!

Incredible experience that showcases all that Seven Brothers has to offer

The diving! we saw turtles, rays, dolphins, SPINY LOBSTERS, soooo many eels, beautiful schools of fish and more. The dive guides were phenomenal and tailored the experience to the diving ability of the group. We will be back when it's whale shark season!

Ten whale sharks feeding in one view on a night dive, amazing!!

The crew both dive and boat are as keen as the divers and nothing is to much trouble. The quantity of Whale Sharks on each dive or snorkel. The best night dive ever and a pod of Orca's made a great week.

Unsafe liveaboard with lack of working equipment - not recommended

No safety standards on the vessel Provided tanks and equipment in very poor and unsafe condition Emergency ascend needed in 25m due to broken O-rings Worst liveaboard after 400 dives, not recommended The encounter with 3 whalesharks was great, but it is artificial. They just come in the night because the light of the vessel attracts the plancton and the whalesharks feed.

Exclusive Divetrip

We were so happy that the trip took place at all, because we were the only paying guests. The owner of the boat - a passionate diver as my daughter and I - joined us for this really amazing and exclusive trip. We did the White Lady, a very old wreck totally overgrown with white soft corals and inhabitated by an enormous grouper and a leopard shark. The Coral Gardens were so alive and intact like they must have been in the Red Sea some fifty years ago. The crew was super friendly and helpful with everything. THANK YOU AGAIN!
