¿What is exactly a “Liveaboard”?

A liveaboard is, as its name indicates, a trip in which everything is lived and done on a boat; In our case, diving, sleeping and eating (a lot!), basically.

There are different types of liveaboards all over the world, and they are a perfect option for lovers of diving, surfing or any other aquatic modality who want to have a more complete and authentic experience and, of course, and in our case, dive in remote places. where you couldn’t reach on a day trip.

📅 Trip Dates

The liveaboard is scheduled for the dates of March 28th and April 4th, and we may add a few days before or after with some activity in the area!

IMPORTANT: We go onboard on March 28th during the afternoon (between 2:00 p.m. and 2:00 a.m. the next day) and on April 4th we leave the boat around 9:30 a.m. (Remember that at least 24 hours must pass to fly after the dives).

This trip starts from Hurghada port. 
 

🧭 The Itinerary

This itinerary presents the best of both worlds, where you visit famous wrecks in the northern Red Sea along with some stunning reef diving.

The famous horseshoe shaped reef of Shaab El Erg is a perfect example of the reefs on offer on this cruise with its beautiful hard coral garden and the chance to see dolphins. Abu Nuhas has four well-known wrecks: Giannis D, Carnatic, the Chrisoula K (’tile wreck’) and the Kimon M (‘lentil wreck’), all offering spectacular dives and plenty of fish life. In between wreck dives you will also visit the reefs of the Straits of Gubal, Gulf of Suez and those to the north of Hurghada. A variety of deep walls and hard coral gardens with an abundance of reef fish make them well worth a visit.

Night dives can be superb as Gubal Island offers protected anchoring for the night. A small wreck at 8-10 metres makes for a spectacular night dive with lionfish, scorpion fish and its resident giant moray eel as well as the wreck of the Ulysses. Next onto the Kingston lying at Shag Rock, the Carina lying close to Sha’ab Ali and the Dunraven at Beacon Rock. 🐠🐡🦈🐙🐟

Ras Mohamed lies on the southernmost tip of the Sinai and is one of the best kept National Parks in Egypt with waters full of nutrients, steep walls going down to a depth of 1000 metres attracting a large amount of big fish and earning itself a reputation as one of the top diving areas in the world. Whilst here, you may have the chance to dive at Shark Reef, a sheer wall falling into the blue, as well as the wreck of the Yolanda.

The main diving spots will be the following: Abu Nuhas, Straits of Gubal, SS Thistlegorm, Ras Mohamed, Straits of Tiran and Ulysses among others

This itinerary requires at least having an Open Water course (there is no minimum number of dives), although for some other diving you may not be able to go down more than 18m if you do not have higher qualifications such as Advanced Open Water course (which you can do on board if you want!).

🚢 Our Boat

One of the most important aspects for a liveaboard to go well and to fully enjoy it is that the place where we “live” for a week is comfortable and functional.

In our case, we will have the Emperor Superior for ourselves, a 37-meter-long super-boat and one of the best in the fleet that, in addition, was fully refurbished in 2022 (so we will have it practically brand new!!) 😍

The boat is ready to accommodate up to 26 divers in very comfortable rooms, with air conditioning and everything you need to feel comfortable and rest after the dives. The main floor has a large dining room where meals are served, and on the upper floor a living room where dive briefings are held and where there are sofas, books, documentaries, etc. At the bottom are the rooms and on the upper terrace there is a bar with tables and a gigantic deck with sun loungers where you can sunbathe or have a good snooze.

Regarding the meals and service, it’s just amazing; The menus are abundant and different every day, and the staff is always attentive, smiling and helping you with whatever you need (even putting on your wetsuit or putting on your fins!).

The final price for this trip on these dates is 1.390€ all included for standard cabin (subject to cabin availability).

Ha sido un viaje increíble!!!! Mi primer vida a bordo y cuando ya acababa estaba pensando en el siguiente que iba a hacer!!! La acogida perfecta, nos han cuidado muchísimo, la comida IMPRESIONANTE. Y los buceos lo más! Cada uno era distinto al anterior, y los momentos con la gente con la que hemos compartido los 7 días en el barco (tripulación, instructores, buceadores, cocineros) me los llevo en el recuerdo y para repetir la experiencia con todos ellos! Empezando por el año que viene, que volveremos seguro☺️☺️ no os lo penséis y animaros!!!!!

Una experiencia increíble! Lo recomiendo 100%. Hice la ruta centro del mar rojo en semana santa 2024. Hubo una unión muy bonita entre todos los buceadores, muchas risas y los buceos sin palabras: Tiburones, nudis, delfines, arrecife, tortugas, manta y hasta un dugongo!!! Con este viaje he ganado amigos y muchos recuerdos. Gracias Kike por todo, por la gestión previa del viaje y por la convivencia en el barco. Repetiremos!

Mi primer vida a bordo ha sido una experiencia increíble por la ruta centro del Mar Rojo gracias a Longimanus trips. Los puntos de buceo, el barco y sus instalaciones de 10. La tripulación no ha podido ser más amable y atenta con nosotros. Por otro lado el ambiente y unión de grupo ha sido muy guay. Agradecer a Kike su disponibilidad en cualquier momento y ante cualquier duda, el buen rollo que nos ha transmitido y sobre todo haber hecho posible este viaje. Repetiré seguro!

Los vidabordo de buceo de Longimanus son de otro mundo. He tenido la oportunidad de ir con ellos a la ruta DFE en el Mar Rojo ahora en semana santa 2024, y nos lo hemos pasado fenomenal. El barco era gigante, la tripulación encantadora y los guías de buceo muy muy cracks. Pero si algo marca la diferencia es el grupo y la filosofia, Longimanus consigue sacar el mejor buen rollo de cada uno, para convertir el vidabordo en una experiencia que va más allá de un simple viaje de buceo. Repetiremos sin duda, ¡un abrazo Kike!
