Read our customer reviews for this liveaboardCustomer Reviews
MY Golden Dolphin III is one of the Egypt liveaboards in the southern Red Sea

Examples of the space on board include the large dive deck, shaded relaxation areas on the main and upper deck and the exposed sun deck. There is a dedicated air-conditioned restaurant on the main deck and, for those who prefer to relax indoors, there is a large air-conditioned lounge complete with TV, DVD, free internet and music system. There is also a library of marine and general books in a variety of languages, mostly English and German.

There are a number of features which reveal Golden Dolphin III to be a real scuba divers' liveaboard: the large dive deck boasts a camera table and charging station, hot showers and toilet plus nitrox is available free of charge. Space, comfort and good service are all elements of a Red Sea diving trip emphasised by the Golden Dolphin's Egypt liveaboards.
