Exploring some of the best dive sites in the southern Red Sea, the Sea Friend liveaboard accommodates just 20 divers in 13 en-suite cabins. With the capacity to take up to 26 guests, Seafriend caps the numbers to just 20 for added comfort and space onboard. Each cabin features twin side-by-side beds or large doubles, individually controlled AC, and a private bathroom with a shower. Seven cabins are on the lower deck, and 6 cabins are on the upper deck. The tastefully decorated dining room is the perfect place to enjoy home-cooked Egyptian and Western cuisine, and the outdoor terrace with sofas and beanbags is ideal for enjoying the sea breezing and unwinding with a drink at the end of the day. The sundeck has been extended to allow ample guest space and has a wind-protected area.

The spacious dive deck and platform at the back of the boat have been extended by 2 meters to give plenty of space for gear storage, kitting up and getting ready for some of the best diving in the Red Sea.

A wonderful week of diving with a skilled and friendly crew.

The amazing hard coral formations and the stunning reefs throughout the area. A lot of smaller fish and a lot of variety even though some of the larger fish were missing this time of year. The weather was very hot the first few days but the environment of the boat was comfortable. Appreciated the very clear and comprehensive dive briefings since all of the sites were new to me.

Great trip for diving some of the Northern Wrecks and Brothers.

We decided on a spontaneous trip to the Red Sea for our Christmas Break and we can say, that the Seafriend was a great pick. The dive sites were well chosen with some good variety, starting from reef dives to the Brothers and some northern wrecks, including the Thistlegorm. Briefings were always very thorough, dive groups were small enough and attention was paid to different experience levels. Even the gluten intolerance of my wife was well catered for. Thanks to the whole team it was a trip to remember and we will be back for some BDE shark action!

Tolle und aufregende Tauchsafari mit einer guten Crew!

Wir sind jeden Tag an einem neuen Riff getaucht, teilweise sogar jeden Tauchgang. Wir haben einen Mantarochen und zwei Longimanus gesehen. Das Boot verfügte über genügend Platz, trotzdem war es gemütlich und die Atmosphäre sehr familiär und freundschaftlich. Eine ganz klare Weiterempfehlung für die Sea Friend!
