The Grand Sea Serpent, as the name suggests, is the flagship of the Sea Serpent's Red Sea cruise fleet and doesn't skimp on luxury in any respect. This modern 41 metre long liveaboard is designed with speed and luxury in mind, ensuring scuba divers get between sites as quickly and comfortably as possible while maintaining stability, even in rough seas.

12 cabins are to be found on Grand Sea Serpent, which includes top-class Red Sea liveaboard diving comforts like music, a fridge / minibar and en-suite bathrooms which are large and feature multi-jet showers.

In the communal areas the saloon on the main deck takes advantage of all the space and is equipped with cutting edge entertainment equipment. Outside, a large open area provides the opportunity for soaking up the sun, or enjoying views of the Red Sea from a shaded area, both of which have ample comfortable seating and sun matresses.

Grand Sea Serpent is also the technical diver's dream. It features a helium/oxygen blending station and a Haskel pump, catering to both the open and closed circuit technical divers. 200-bar oxygen fills are provided as well as on-demand trimix, heliox and nitrox.
