Liveaboard diving in the Red Sea with the MY Galaxy

Built in 2009, this liveaboard boat makes use of the latest in marine technology, with twin 1400 HP MTU engines and Super Silent generators.

At over 42 metres in length, Galaxy oozes space and elegance. The stylish saloon is huge and beautifully fitted with large seaview windows and swish sofa seating to relax with a drink from the bar or espresso machine, or catch a movie on the 42" plasma screen TV. Galaxy also allows guests to stay connected with complimentary onboard internet access. There is a dedicated air-conditioned restaurant towards the bow of the main deck. This is the spot on this liveaboard where you'll sample fine dining with a touch of class.

The Standard cabins on the lower and upper decks are all bright and spacious with personal unit air-conditioning and private bathrooms. The king-size Royal Suite is immaculately designed, being large enough for 2 sofas and a separate walk-in shower cubicle in its bathroom. It is also equipped with a personal TV and DVD player. There are 2 more king-size Suites on the upper deck with large windows.

Like most divers in the Red Sea, you'll want to make the most of your available time underwater. The Galaxy provides free nitrox for all qualified divers to enable you to do this. MY Galaxy also takes its guest safety seriously too. That's why every diver gets free use of the ENOS satellite location and rescue system. This means you don't need to be concerned about getting lost at sea - Galaxy do this for you!

The Galaxy's dive deck and platform will not disappoint you either. There are toilets, hot water showers, and charging points for batteries. 2 large motorised dive dinghies with experienced dive guides will whisk you away to all the top Red Sea dive spots.

The MY Galaxy is Master of the Universe when it comes to Red Sea liveaboard diving.
