At a max speed of 14 knots she is no slouch and remains a popular choice among divers due to the free nitrox, and the spacious 30mē dive deck which has 10 equipment spaces so you need not be on top of each other as the pre-dive excitement mounts. There are also hot fresh water showers on the dive deck for your comfort.

There are 4 triple and 2 double cabins all with portholes and ensuite bathrooms, located on the lower deck. The Ghazala I never feels too crowded with normally between 12 and 16 divers on board even when all are in the spacious saloon enjoying the music or video systems.
