Amelie Liveaboard, Egypt


Designed to cater to small groups of 12, the Amelie Safari liveaboard is a great choice for a private Red Sea dive trip. Built at the shipyards of Alexandria in 1995, the experienced captain and crew of the Amelie liveaboard are on hand to deliver an amazing Red Sea diving safari. Six comfortable cabins located on the lower deck are available, each with twin bunk-beds, storage space, charging area, and port-hole windows. There are also 2 shared bathrooms with freshwater showers. Social areas include the cosy indoor saloon, dining room, and drinks station, where freshly prepared Egyptian cuisine will be served buffet-style. The whole top deck is an open area, with an outdoor covered lounge. Sun -lovers have the choice of 3 areas to sunbathe, including the front deck and high deck which have comfy mattresses to lounge on in-between dives.

The dive deck, located at the back of the boat, has more than enough space for divers to get kitted up and ready for some amazing Red Sea diving. The Amelie safari specialises in underwater photography dive trips, choosing the best spots, and trained assistance for keen underwater photographers to get the most out of their time underwater. Snorkellers and non-divers are also welcome on board, and dive courses can be taught by experienced instructors. Nitrox is also included in the trip price for those certified.

Excellent value

Though if I had known I was going to be sitting tied up on the docks for the first 18 hours, I would of prefered to have not slept on the boat that night and just done a gear check the night before and joined up the following morning. Everything else was very good. The crew was excellent. Would suggest more comfortable areas to sit on above deck in between dives. The dives spots were good although after diving here I think I would of prefered diving much more south egypt than in this area if I was to do it again but that has nothing to do with the boat or crew. This is the best Value trip you can book for the money.

Great experience, great diving

Diving the two wrecks. Very impressive and a great experience to swim into the wrecks. The food was always absolutely delicious; good variety, too. The crew was wonderful; always in good mood, helpful, making you feel special. We were also lucky to have a great group of fellow divers; we all got along great and all left as friends. Overall a GREAT experience, even for divers with 150+ and 500+ dives!!

Smaller group than expected but great service

There were only 3 of us onboard as customers so we were outnumbered by the instructors and crew! But that meant we got loads of help from the crew and instructors. Very comfortable cabins and beautiful boat that was kept spotlessly clean. Unfortunately we didnt see any big fish or mammals (except a whale shark from the boat) but Nov is not the best season to dive here. Medhat is a brilliant instructor who is always thinking about how to make your dives as comfortable and safe as possible. I did my AOW onboard with him and he was brilliant

Supera las expectativas

El contraste de los buceos realizados es tan sorprendente como recomendable. Sin duda estar disfrutando de infinitos jardines de arrecife en una bajada y en otra adentrarte a un enorme pecio del siglo/s pasado/s te transporta a la esencia del buceo y la exploración marina más intensa Tuvimos la suerte que no se completó el barco y con el grupo de buceadores conectamos enseguida, todo salió a pedir de boca, por mi experiencia en vidas a bordo recomiendo grupos reducidos, da más juego sin duda.

Great, even when corona shortened the trip

Medhat our diving guide always carefully selected the diving spots and especially the timing of our dives, so we never had to share the dive spots with any other group. Crew was really friendly, great service and great food. Due to the outbreak of the corona virus, we had to shorten our trip, before we all got stranded inside Egypt. Crew was helpful and helped us organising flights and brought us back to Hurghada, so we could call people and book return flights. I definitely come back to finish the trip I started.

Amazing trip on a lovely boat with an very nice crew

I just can recommend this trip, boat and crew by heart. Eventhough, the corona virus hit us quite hard in the middle of the trip I would do it again. We were lucky with the professional and very nice crew. Since the entire world was shutting down we needed to be updated all the time so our guide managed us to have some amazing dives (we saw wrecks, swam with a group of dolphins and joined a turtle for here lunch) but still kept us updated how the international situation is changing. The sites are stunning and lots of fish all over. The guidance was very good and the food delicious. You could just feel like home on the boat since it's not one of those big boats where they always have their same program. Here you really can feel, that the crew cares you are enjoying and adapt the program to your wishes. But I specifically want to point out although the general situation got very tensed in Egypt and all over the world our crew organized everything accordance to our needs and were very flexible so we made it back in time.

Beautiful trip!

We had a liveaboard on Amelie in November 2020. Only positive impressions! Diving, guides, crew, boat, food, service (including assistance and promp answers to all questions before the trip) - everything is excellent. There was a family atmosphere on Board. We also dived with dolphins! Thanks to all the team (special thank to Medhat)! (Just one minor, probably subjective, moment: if there is less fried food in the menu it will be even better.)

Good diving opportunity for the cost

Amelie gives you a good diving experience for the money you pay. It's not a boat that provides the comfort of a hotel, the rooms are not luxurious and the boat has two bathrooms/showers that are shared. But the crew is helpful, the guides are looking for empty dive spots to provide the best opportunity, the food is great and you always have hot water to take off the wetsuit. It provides a great opportunity if you don't want to pay for the luxury and just want to have good dives with a good boat.

Loved every second of it

I can highly recommend this trip. The crew was very sweet, the food surprised me since it was o super yummy (they also take care of vegetarians and prepare everything fresh - one night they even catched fresh fish we ate the next day) and they even prepared fresh fruit juices for us after the dives. The dive spots where marvellous - we met dolphins, turtles, octopus, barracuda schools, etc. This is amazing value for money (note that a 50€ marina fee comes on top of the price). They also offer free nitrox (the percentage was not very high though, but that really didn't matter much to me). I also liked that they tried to cater for guest's wishes and split groups into experience levels and let comfortable divers go on their own in buddy teams. I would totally come back and will not forget those 3 days which seemed so much longer since we experienced so much. Thanks for everything, guys!
