The modern and stylish MY Aldebaran liveaboard caters to up to 20 guests in 6 deluxe double cabins, 2 triple cabins, and 2 suites. Each cabin features en-suite bathrooms with towels and bathrobes, individually controlled AC, storage space, and a mini-bar. The main deck features a bright indoor salon with an entertainment system and library, which then leads through to the dining room with ample seating for all guests, plus a drinks station with coffee/tea-making facilities and drinking water. A covered outdoor lounge area and open sun deck are located on the upper deck, which leads up to the sky deck with more loungers.

Located at the rear of the boat is the large dive deck with individual storage baskets, wetsuit hangers, and a camera set-up table, and it leads down to the spacious dive platform for easy entry and exits onto the boat. Red Sea itineraries aboard the M/Y Aldebaran explore some of the best dive sites in Egypt. Trips are usually 7-nights long and depart from either Port Ghalib or Marsa Alam. Explore the remote deep south of St. Johns, the pristine walls, and wreck diving off the Brother Islands, or if you're lucky, some exciting shark action at Daedalus Reef.

Whichever Red Sea dive safari you choose, it will surely be a trip to remember. Book online today to reserve your place on the MY Aldebaran liveaboard.
