The Sea Serpent Fleet started its operation with the Sea Serpent. She is a truly luxury liveaboard in very good condition.

Depending on the tour, the vessel starts from either Hurghada or Marsa Alam.

All cabins are also fitted with individually controlled air conditioning, a mini bar, bathrobes and towels.

The food is served buffet style with local specialties as well as European cuisine too. On the four decks, guests will find plenty of space, where they can choose to either relax in the sun or shade. A large dive deck is not missing either. The electronic equipment and the safety standards of the vessel are state of the art.
Multiple dives are on offer each day either off the large dive deck, or off one of the two small dinghies (Zodiacs). Divers should be a bit more experienced to participate in these dive safaris. Nitrox is available on board board. They have 12-liter Aluminium tanks INT and also with DIN connection are available.
The off shore Marine Park islands, The Brothers, Daedalus, Rocky Islands and Zabargad Islands, are the highlights of the Red Sea. The Brother Islands, two outer reefs rising from great depths, are one of the world's best dive sites. Steep walls, covered by stunning soft corals of all colours, black and fan corals, two wrecks, pelagic fish and schools of fish will excite any diver. With some luck you?ll meet thresher sharks, grey reef sharks, hammer head, oceanic white tip sharks and mantas. The trip in stormy weather may be somewhat rough, but the diving makes up for the effort.
Another sure winner for world-class diving is close to the Daedalus Islands, where especially in summer you are very likely to encounter pelagics, and be prepared to meet schools of hammer head sharks!
Excellent and almost unspoilt dive sites are in the areas of Rocky Island and Zabargad Island. All those sites are teaming with schools of tropical fish and promise lots of big fish action. Much further south, St John is a collection of small reefs offering all the beauty of the Red Sea with breathtaking reefs covered with hard corals and soft corals in all colours. Add the possibility to spot a wide variety of pelagics, big fish, Dolphins and diving through a labyrinth of caves.
The North offers very good to spectacular wreck diving. The Thistlegorm is a must dive, you cannot miss this one! She holds plenty cargo like motorcycles, locomotives and war goods - a really unique dive. The wrecks of Abu Shaab Nuhas are also worth a visit. Dives in the Tiran Strait complete the tours in the north.
This luxury vessel offers a lot of comfort and a large dive deck. Even the most demanding divers will be very happy with choosing the Sea Serpent.
