Fantastic Liveaboard in the red sea

Everything about the trip was amazing. Delicious food, friendly Crew, in depth & safety oriented dive briefings and practices, and of course the marine life that we saw including tresher & hammerhead sharks. Thank you to the Sea Serpent Fleet for making this an unforgettable experience!

Enjoyable liveaboard

The boat was well appointed and the crew were very helpful and friendly. There were lots of options for food (which was very tasty) and catered well to vegetarians. The dive guide we were with was very experienced and knowledgeable and the BDE route is great for pelagics.

BDE route deep diving and Sharks

We have 9 divers per 1 guide, you should be a good confident diver for this 9:1 ratio ... so those who want to choose the BDE route must know this is deep diving (most of those 3 places) trip, and understand when you do deep dive with Nitrox. We were lucky with the weather at the Brothers and the rest of this route. 2 nights spend at Daedalus Reef as every dive Hammerhead shark showed up even just one ... I am very happy with the Boat & Crews who helped me to gear up and take me out of the water. If I would do this trip again, I would spend 2-3 days doing day diving somewhere in Hurghada, before the liveaboard begin, so I would know exactly the right weights to carry while diving. Overall I am happy with the trip, we have seen so much more than what we have expected. Oceanic Manta (my very first time! ), 2 Thresher sharks laying down at 42 meters, Hammerhead cruising around .., and Giant Napoleon Fish who come and try to bite my guide. The private guide would be the best option if you do really want to see everything on this trip, just my suggestion.

Beautiful corals and unique wrecks

The dives themselves were excellent, although some of the dive sites (wrecks in particular) had too much traffic and became inconvenient and perhaps even dangerous at times. With a total of 24 guests, life onboard was a little tight, and the rooms somewhat small. Food and drinks were ok, but nothing special for vegetarian/vegan fares. Staff was friendly and helpful, guides were professional, the pace of the trip was reasonable, overall a worthwhile experience.
