There are 10 double cabins and 6 suites with views, all air-conditioned and equipped with private showers and toilets. The saloon and dining area on the main deck is perfect for relaxing. Entertainment options include a 65-inch LCD TV, a DVD player, and a sound system. In addition, the Ocean Lovers offers free Wi-Fi throughout the ship as long as a mobile signal is available. The Ocean Lover's 2 sun decks are spacious, with sun loungers, lazy bags, hammock swing chairs, and a hammock swing. Ideal for relaxing between dives, reading a book, or enjoying the sunset. Part of the sun deck is shaded, so guests always have a choice of whether they prefer the sun or protection from the heat.

The Ocean Lovers offers the chance to explore the famous Red Sea wrecks and reefs, including the Tiran diving area, composed of four main reefs that form an underwater bridge near the Gulf of Aqaba. Named after British cartographers (Jackson, Woodhouse, Thomas, and Gordon), these reefs are famous for their coral life and large pelagic fish. Expect a combination of wreck and reef diving, with the Northern Red Sea boasting impressive wrecks like the SS Thistlegorm. Other sites include Abu Nuhas, the "Ships Graveyard," and the Brothers Islands, with their thriving marine life and colorful corals. Anticipate encounters with reef sharks, eagle rays, oceanic white tip sharks, Napoleon fish, thresher sharks, hammerhead sharks, grey reef sharks, and more.

Amazing trip!

Our trip was simply amazing! The comfort of the boat: cabins, sundeck, lounge were so comfortable and even the boat was packed, there was so much space to sit, chill and relax between the dives. Also the dive deck was large enough for everyone! Dive guides and even more the crew did everything to make our lives as easy as possible, both during and between the dives.. Goes without saying that the dive sites were awesome, with the 3 dives at the thislegorm the highlight of the trip. There is not much what could be done better, but if I have to name something then that I missed fresh coffee on board. Drinking this instant "coffee" for 7 days was torture for an coffee addict like myself. Would definately recommend the boat and hope to come back one day!

Very nice experience

The hightlights of the trip were discovering nice dive sites, the fresh snaks prepared after the afternoon dive, the ambiance made by the crew, watching over the sunset in front of dolphins. Suggestions for improvements if possible : fresh juices for breakfast, better bread, and some games equipment on and over board.

Amazing

At first we didn't know what to expect, and we were quite skeptical about this kind of trips. Ocean Lovers surpassed all our expectations and we had the time of our lives. The boat is truly amazing, the crew does EVERYTHING for you, dive guides are super friendly and the food and drinks included are above average. Super recommendable

Very good boat with some small things that can be improved

We had a very good trip. Diving was done in a professional way, we had some really good dives! It would be better if it was not allowed without at least 50 dives. We had some beginners with less than 20 dives, soaking the tank in 35 minutes. Food was overall very good, sometimes my vegetarian wife had not a lot of to choose from, because of fish in the salad for example. The ship was super clean and the boat crew very helpful, friendly and funny. Dive Guides did a very good job, especially considering the extra stress, guiding unexperienced divers to Thistlegorm with hard current. Thanks guys!

Wonderful boat and crew!

We did the BDE itinerary, unfortunately with very few sharks, but we knew it was not the main shark season. The boat was amazing, the guides were very knowledgable and cared a lot about the reef and we always felt safe while diving. The boat crew was always smiling and in for a joke and most of them spoke reasonable English. The food was very good, especially the dinners. The rental gear was also good quality. Wonderful!

Unforgettable

This was my first liveaboard experience, and it has been amazing! The dive guides Zizo and Mohammed made sure we were briefed before every dive and diving safely. The crew were very friendly and helpful, the cabins were cleaned and tidy almost after every dive. I would highly recommend this liveaboard to anyone looking for an unforgettable experience.
