Spend a week exploring the world famous Wrecks and Reefs of the Egyptian Red Sea with Aquanaut Scuba on board Tornado Marine Fleet’s M/Y Whirlwind. This trip is suitable for all levels of diver including those newly certified as a PADI Open Water Diver/BSAC Ocean Diver or equivalent. We also hope to be able to offer an extended package with Anthias Divers in Sharm el Sheikh which will present an opportunity for divers in training who have completed the PADI OW Referral to finish off their certification with the 4 PADI OW Qualifying Dives prior to embarking on the liveaboard and experience shore and day-boat diving from the dive centre in Naama Bay.

A Liveaboard is a superb opportunity to increase your skills and confidence through completing the PADI Advanced Open Water Diver certification or adding some PADI Speciality qualifications (at heavily discounted prices), such as PADI Boat Diver Speciality for £75!

We have arranged through Scuba Travel shared use of a liveaboard sailing from Sharm el Sheikh on the classic Northern Wrecks and Reefs itinerary. Wrecks and Reefs is the itinerary for any diver wanting to see the best of the Northern Red Sea – no matter what experience level you have you will see what has made Egypt’s Red Sea such an unmissable destination in 1 week of adventure. With world class wreck dives and breath taking reef dives every day, why not take a trip to the best of both worlds. Endlessly flexible, Wreck and Reefs has become a classic route. And yet no two trips are ever the same which is why many divers return year after year! The route is enjoyable at any time of the year as the underwater scenery and marine life is ever changing with the seasons and guaranteed to leave you breathless.
Dive on reefs generally recognised as being in the top ten in the world, such as Shark and Yolanda and Jackson Reefs. Explore one of the most famous wrecks in the world, the mighty SS Thistlegorm, for unforgettable diving, both day and night. Visit 19th and 20th century wrecks such as The Kingston, Dunraven, Giannis D and Carnatic.
May is a wonderful time for diving in the Red Sea with average water temperatures at that time of year of around 24-25 degrees C making it perfect for wearing a 3mm or 5mm wetsuit.. The air temperature will be pleasantly warm but not as intense as the baking heat of summer, making it more than suitable for improving the suntan between dives.

We need a minimum of 10 divers on the boat for this trip to go ahead (Whirlwind is designed to accommodate 22 guests). We cannot confirm the exact price yet, as the flight tickets are not yet available, but we hope that the total cost will be under £1450. These prices include 7 nights in a shared cabin, all meals on board and soft drinks. There are normally 20 or 21 dives during the week and tank weights and air are influenced in the price. Any equipment hire, NITROX gas or instruction on courses is charged separately.

What we need now is expressions of interest to enable us to judge whether we can make this trip go ahead. Please email info@aquanautscuba.co.uk for more information or to secure your space with a deposit of only £100. Further payments will then be required in October, topping the deposit to £250, then in November to make the deposit total £500. The balance will be required 3 months prior to departure.
