This spacious liveaboard has 7- or 14-night itineraries to the best dive sites in the Red Sea. In the Northern itinerary, perfect for beginner divers, you can dive on amazing wrecks and marine parks with little to medium currents. The Southern itinerary will take you to the famous "BDE" route: Brothers, Daedalus, and Elphinstone, with beautiful colorful reefs and sharks around. If you want to see even more pelagic life, go for the Deep South route, taking you to Rocky, Zabargad, Fury Shoal, and St John's. In these deeper waters close to Sudan, get ready for a lot of action with oceanic whitetips, hammerheads, thresher sharks, and bottlenose dolphins to name a few!
They adhere to Longitude 181's International Charter for Responsible Diving and strive to reduce single-use plastic as much as possible.
For beginner divers in the North to more experienced divers enjoying currents in the South, it's recommended to have an Advanced Open Water (or level 2) certification to dive in the South. It's possible to do the course onboard — ask us.

Egypt's reefs are home to over a thousand fish species, 20% of which are endemic to the Red Sea. With a varied topography, stunning wrecks, and incredible marine life, Egypt caters to all levels of divers. Get ready to drift dive on dramatic walls and pinnacles.
If you go to the South, you'll see some exciting pelagic life with thresher sharks, oceanic whitetips, and some hammerhead sharks!
Deep south, near Sudan, keep an eye out for bottlenose dolphins, hammerheads again, leopard sharks, manta rays, and more!
In Northern Red Sea, the most famous dive sites are Shark and Yolanda Reef, Ras Mohamed National Park, and the SS Thistlegorm, a ship that sank in 1941 bombed by German aviation, stretching over 128 meters long (420 ft).
In Southern Red Sea, the most famous dive sites are Big Brother, Daedalus, and Elphinstone Reef. The reefs are healthier than in the North, and the topography is varied, with deep walls, tunnels, and even a few wrecks to look at!
In Deep South Red Sea, St. John's Reef and the marine parks of Zabargad and Rocky Islands are relatively remote and not visited frequently by liveaboards. The area offers what is considered the most spectacular diving in Egypt with varied topography and some big pelagic life as you get closer to Sudan.
