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.

hard to reach location and good value for the money

Because of weather situation, I was late 1 day in arriving. The captain specially sent a boat back from the near harbor diving location to pick me up. I am grateful that I only missed 1 day of diving. Diving at the Seven Brothers was very interesting.

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.
