Sunlight Liveaboard, Egypt


Completely renovated in 2019, the MY Sunlight liveaboard is a 34m yacht offering year-round Red Sea dive safaris. She caters to 20 guests in 10 modest cabins, each with single and double beds, individually controlled air-conditioning, and private ensuite bathrooms. The indoor salon and dining room features air-conditioning, comfortable sofas, and a drink station. On the upper deck are a large partially covered sunbathing area and outdoor lounge. The perfect place to hang out with your new dive buddies at the end of the day to swap dive stories.

Located at the stern of the boat is a large dive deck with rinse tanks, storage space, and a platform for easy entry into the 2 zodiacs or straight into the water. Divers have the choice of 3 itineraries, the North Route, South Route, and Deep South Route aboard the M/Y Sunlight. The North Route is perfect for wreck lovers with dives as the world-famous SS Thistlegorm, Rosalie Muller, and Carnatic, as well as reef dives at Ras Mohammed National Park & Tiran. The Southern Red Sea route offers amazing drift diving and big fish action at the Brothers, Elphinstone, and Daedalus. For the more adventurous, the Deep South Route explores that little bit further to St. Johns for pristine diving, as well as stopping at Rocky, Zabargad, and Elphinstone.

Whichever route you choose, the crew of the MY Sunlight liveaboard is on hand to show you the fantastic dive sites of the Red Sea. Call us or book online today to reserve your space.

Great and well run fuss-free dive safari for more experienced divers.

A Russian company (so expect a lot of Russians) it was a refreshing experience for a more adult diving crowd. Not too many rules or hand-holding, people left to their own devices and a great atmosphere in the evenings. Really good food and lots and lots of it, great diving conditions and good guides, good value for money and if you know how to dive already this is a great trip and company to do it with.

Difficult , but still amazing.

The crew were really friendly and helpful. However the diving guide had tendency to bad behavior and rudeness as a guide when under water. But he is a very skilled diver however and I'm sure the Russians were pleased with him. One thing that must be said is that 99% are Russian speaking, a very, very few of them speak English which makes the social interactions impossible. It was me and a german girl as the the two odd out. The main briefings are all in Russian but we do get a shorter much condense recap of what was said.
