Blue Pearl is the second generation of the Blue Planet fleet of Egypt liveaboard dive vessels. It sports a modern, sleek-looking hydrodynamic hull designed for lower water displacement leading to faster speeds and better fuel efficiency. Built specifically for diving charters in Egypt's Red Sea, Blue Pearl is 36 metres long and effortlessly accommodates up to 20 guests in liveaboard comfort.

The communal areas of Blue Pearl are perhaps its best feature. The interior uses wood finishings giving the liveaboard a classy and warm feel. The saloon on the main deck leads into the dining section, both of which are spacious and plush, making for comfortable surface intervals and meal times. The upper deck has a well designed shaded chill out area with large loungers and a music system, ideal to unwind after a day's diving in the Red Sea.

The ensuite cabin interiors are also up to standard in terms of size and condition. The upper deck has double bed cabins with windows, whilst the lower deck twin cabins have 2 portholes each for extra daylight. Unusually on the lower deck, all the cabins are some distance from the engine room, making sleeping more peaceful and less fitful.

The diving deck is not the largest, though it is equipped with nitrox, hot water showers and toilets. It also has 2 motorised dive dinghies and each Red Sea cruise utilises 2 divemasters for a more personal liveaboard service. Catering to photo aficionados, it's also equipped with a separate rinse tank for cameras as well as a camera table and plenty of battery charging points.
