Excellent in all ways. Would recommend without reservation.

Not going to be redundant. One area of improvement or to look out for. Transfers to and from boat. Got lost on way to boat, and several stops on way back. Spend the money on a Private Transfer, you’ll be glad you did.

Where are the fish?

Very nice HD TVs in each room and the lounge. Satellite channels allow us to watch many different sports and news channels at any time. However, the best time to see the sharks is mid September to early December. Perhaps sea life will be more plentiful then also, as we saw very few fish on our trip in March.

An incredible adventure

The biggest highlight for me was being on such an incredible boat with an amazing crew and meeting so many friendly and interesting people from around the globe. I am completely satisfied with those aspects. However, I wish I had done a little more research on the trips available on this vessel. Apparently they two types of trips. One is to the North and involves more of a search for the big sharks. Has a lot of deep diving in some rather rigorous conditions and the other is more towards the South I was told had more of the colorful reefs I had hoped to see on our trip. This is by no means a bad review of our trip, I would have preferred more of the colorful stuff.

Great week on a great boat

Seeing oceanic whitetips up close, and i mean CLOSE! The Blue boat is the nicest in the Blue Planet fleet, and easily the nicest of all the Egyptian Red Sea competitors that I could see. Dive guides were superb, and everything was taken care of to the smallest detail. Highly recommended. My only wish is that I had gone during peak season as we didn't see many hammerheads.

Best luxury dive safari money can biy

Red Sea is an amazing place to dive. We were on the boat for 2 weeks and did 2 separate tours. Several guests were on the yacht for a 2nd, 3rd or more times. Had some other Americans with us and they also said this boat is one of the best run they had ever been on.

Excellent dive safari!

Itinerary was excellent (Daedalus, Zabargad and Rocky), we would make it again with pleasure! Dive briefings were very detailed and comprehensive. The yacht itself is the best of what we have seen in Egypt so far, so we would definitely prefer to go with this yacht again if we plan our next safari in Egypt.

An unforgettable dive experience

Truly enjoyed my trip with the M/Y Blue. Abu Dabab, Daedalus, Elphinstone and especially Brothers are amazing dive sites, with beautiful corals, some wrecks and plenty of marine life - with the longimanus as highlight of course! The crew and dive guides made this trip extra special. Always smiling, in for some fun, friendly and helpful - giving everything to make it for everyone a holiday to remember. Can definitely recommend this liveaboard!

First Liveaboard delivers 100%

We went to Daedalus and saw a school of hammerheads on our first dive and the trip didn't get any worse after that. Oceanic white tip at Elphinstone and corals at Brothers were the highlights as well as a great bunch of divers, guides and crew. Only downside was the amount of great food on offer which made weight management difficult !

The boat is the perfect size to be alone or with others, the cabins have enough space, all very clean and tidy everyday. Everybody goes the extra mile to make your life as easy as possible and pleasant! The 3 chefs are excellent and the food they prepare is so delicious you’ll think you’re also in a gastronomic safari! The crew is vey kind, really knows how to make you feel special. I found the pillow to high, the crew found me a medium one. The diving sites are beautiful, diverse and full of life, the guides make you feel in secure at all times and free. Everything was very well organized. They have pills for seasickness on board, refill individual bottles for the water, books and magasins, you can buy upper body clothes in the boat.

It was an awesome liveaboard. We had so much fun going to St. John’s reef. The crew members were super friendly and professional. Rooms were very clean and everyday housekeeping would make up your bed and clean all around. I have to say that we were also very well fed, every meal was special and delicious. The chef made sure we ate well, and dive masters made sure we dove well and safe. The debriefing was very professional and SMBs were required by every diver. They also provided gps locator for emergency and nitrox free of charge. Highly recommend this liveaboard and I would definitely dive with them again in the future.
