Red Sea liveaboard, the MY King Snefro 5 in the Sinai Peninsula

You will spend your time relaxing indoors in the air conditioned saloon and dining area where you can enjoy TV, video and music system, use the complimentary wifi internet facility, and help yourself to snacks water, tea and coffee at any time. Otherwise you can stretch out on the liveaboard's sundeck either soaking up the rays or in the cool of the shade with a good book.

There are 6 air conditioned cabins of which the 2 deluxe cabins have private ensuite facilities and the 4 standard cabins share 2 bathrooms. King Snefro 5 offers a fun liveaboard diving trip around the Northern Red Sea in smaller groups which makes it a great choice for a full charter. Also if you are a group of 24 people this boat can be chartered along with its identical sister ship King Snefro 3.

Customer reviews: 

"Equipment was fantastic, the boat was spotless, staff were super friendly, knowledgeable and professional, food was fantastic." - Amber McIntyre, New Zealand ...

"It was all excellent. Equipment was in good order, the crew was very friendly and helpful, and sometimes they were good fun too. Facilities were certainly up to standard. We were treated to fruit and snacks after every dive and three good meals a day. And the dive master was most patient when out lack of diving for two year perhaps showed a little sometimes. All very good." - Peter Klaver, Netherlands ...
