Marsa Alam liveaboards in the Red Sea with MY Sea Serpent

A cutting edge, hydrodynamic hull ensures maximum return from the powerful engines and contributes to the vessel's stability, endowing the Sea Serpent with speed, comfort, space and a stable ride, even in high seas.

The Sea Serpent offers both double and twin bed accommodation in 10 cabins. The cabins have individually controlled air-conditioning, en-suite bathrooms and minibars. Each cabin is supplied with bedding, towels and a bathrobe for each guest.

The communal areas are comfortable with entertainment facilities that include a TV, DVD, free 3G Wi-Fi facility, and music station, a spacious lounge for relaxing, a separate dining area and 2 large sun-decks for sun-worshipers and shaded areas for when things get too hot.

The dive deck is huge and there's no elbowing your fellow divers here. 3 air-compressors make short work of tank refills and nitrox is on hand for extending your bottom time in the magnificent Red Sea waters.
