Sunshine Liveaboard, Egypt


The Sunshine liveaboard offers fantastic budget-friendly dive safaris in the Red Sea. Catering to 20 guests, there is plenty of room for relaxation in between dives. The air-conditioned indoor salon has a bar and entertainment area, and ample seating for all guests to enjoy the tasty Egyptian and western cuisine on offer. There is also an outdoor lounge and a partially covered sun deck with loungers. Cabins are simple yet comfortable, featuring twin beds, AC, private en-suite facilities, and storage space.

Itineraries aboard the MY Sunshine explore the best of the Northern and Southern Red Sea dive sites. South routes cover the Brothers, Elphinstone, Daedalus Reef, and the Salem Express. Pristine diving, strong currents, and large pelagic life action are what make this route so special. For wreck lovers, the Northern Red Sea route is the best option, with dives at world-famous wrecks such as the Thistlegorm, Carnatic, Giannis D, and Dunraven. There is also a chance to dive the colourful reefs of Shark & Yolanda. Nitrox is included for those certified, and the spacious dive deck allows ample space for kitting up and gear storage.

The experienced and professional crew are on hand for the perfect Red Sea dive safari. Call us or book online today to reserve your space.

Gutes Packet

Sehr gute und ordentliche crew, Sehr gute Guides. Boot kann weiter empfohlen werden! Günstiger Preis, dafür liegt das Boot im Außenhafen, Tranfer inbegriffen. Das boot ist nicht das aller neuste, dafür aber ein sehr günstiger Preis und daruch ein gutes Preis-Leistungs verhältnis. Der Veranstalter kann vom Service und der Qualität der Guides durchaus mit den teueren Booten mithalten! Hatte die Wreck and Reef Tour gebucht, würde aber für die Riffe eher Marsa Alam buchen (wenn man großfisch sehen will). Zu Empfehlen sind die Wracks im norden. Würde das Boot wieder buchen aber dann mit der Full Wreck tour.
