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!

Reefs and whalesharks

The MY Lucy is the only liveaboard cruising at the Seven Brother Islands, so the reefs are almost untouched. Dolphins, sharks and stingrays will join your dives. Strong currents let you drift along very rich reefs with large schools of fish. The second part of the trip was the gulf of Tadjourah with its murky waters and lots of whalesharks. If you look for a liveaboard away from the crowds, then Lucy is highly recommended.

extraordinary location, away from the (dive)crowds

Diving at 7 brothers is magnificent because the site is untouched, pristine, Because of its isolation only one operator goes there. Visa regulations for Djibouti are a hurdle. Whale shark encounter is a very emotional expirience.

Excellent alternative to Egypt with guaranteed whale sharks (at season) and perfect food

Please consider Djibouti as an alternative to Egypt! Diving at Seven Brothers is perfectly unspoilt, the reefs are healthy, colourful and abundant of different fish, visibility is close to perfect. Although the dive sites are not deep (in average 16-18 metres), there are strong currents so you need to know how to dive currents in order to fully enjoy the reefs and fish. Diving at the Gulf of Tadjoura is not as nice as visibility is quite bad and corals are not that colourful as in the Red Sea, but the main attraction there is snorkelling with whale sharks, which are guaranteed at season. It is really a great experience as the whalesharks come really shallow and stay with snorkelers for quite a time. Lucy is the only boat going to Seven Brothers so diving is very unspoilt and intimate. There are a few more boats at the Gulf of Tadjoura but it never gets even close to crowded. The boat is very new and comfortable, especially the 2 master cabins on the main deck. I cannot say enough about the food - freshly caught fish (as sashimi/ceviche and perfectly baked ) every lunch and dinner, very tasty and healthy salads, pastas and deserts. The Italian/French management knows how to run the boat!!!! Thank you, it was close to perfect.

1) the best food we have ever had on liveaboards; 2) guaranteed snorkelling with whalesharks (at season); 3) unspoilt diving with A LOT OF FISH at Seven Brothers

Super Tauchurlaub!

Seven Brothers ist fantastisch zum Tauchen, die Korallen sind super intakt und was uns am meisten gefallen hat: Man ist komplett alleine mit den Meeresbewohnern, keine anderen störenden und lärmenden Taucher. Die Crew war super nett und stets hilfsbereit, grosses Dankeschön!
