Guests can relax in the large air-conditioned saloon, complete with TV, DVD, music system and complimentary Wi-Fi internet, or in the open air on the top sun deck, or on the 2nd sun deck where there are many cooler, shaded areas. The spacious theme on board the Golden Dolphin II is continued on the dive deck which is a well-organised space, including individual gearing up areas as well as a charging station for your electronics.

Other points of interest include a well stocked marine library in a range of languages, piped music and a mini bar in the cabins. Nitrox is free of charge but must be ordered in advance. So whether relaxing on board on this spacious and comfortable Egyptian liveaboard, or maximising your bottom time in some of the Red Sea's finest dive sites, the MY Golden Dolphin II can deliver it all.
