Egypt diving safaris in the Red Sea with the Sea Queen

A range of 1-week cruises are offered departing on Saturdays and include North and Wrecks, the Brothers, St John's and Marine Parks North and South - plenty of choice even for the most discerning scuba diver.

After an exciting day's diving, guests can socialise in the air-conditioned, comfortably furnished saloon and dining area equipped with a TV, DVD player and movie library. There are also a range of marine and dive books for you to use to identify all the marine life you have encountered. Other places to relax include the covered open air lounge area on the main deck and the sun deck which is partially shaded and has sun chairs and loungers for your comfort.

With a top speed of 14 knots, the Sea Queen I will get you to your destination swiftly and safely. Divers will appreciate the generous size of the dive deck with its individual storage spaces, and the 2 attending dinghies will ensure easy access to the sites. What's more, free nitrox is provided for certified divers.

The Sea Queen I is a professionally-run Red Sea liveaboard and is ideal if you're looking for a fun, social atmosphere on your Egypt diving cruise.
