The 39m Red Sea Aggressor III brings a touch of American hospitality to the Red Sea, a destination long considered a favourite among European scuba divers. You can join 7 night diving safaris on this large liveaboard out of Egypt's Port Ghalib, taking in the best of the Red Sea's southern dive sites.
Up to 22 guests can be accommodated on Red Sea Aggressor III in 11 double or twin share ensuite staterooms. Socialising takes place in the large and comfortable restaurant/saloon area on the main deck, or the huge lounge on the upper deck. This comes complete with TV, DVD, music system and computer. Connectivity is limited to email via satellite phone. Guests often like to hang out here to watch movies or read books and magazines. Alternatively you can chill out in the loungers or hot tub on the partially covered sundeck, or enjoy an end of day drink in the cocktail lounge with ever-changing views of the southern Red Sea.
Nitrox is available for purchase so you can extend those bottom times on the finest Red Sea dive sites. Photographers will appreciate the photo and video center, and the dive deck's camera table and camera rinse tank. All dives are done from the 3 motorised tenders that accompany the liveaboard yacht.
Safety is emphasised with the provision of 'Nautilus lifeline' lost diver devices and the mandatory use of dive computers. So if you fancy experiencing the best diving of the southern Red Sea with all the comfort and service of the worldwide Aggressor dive safari fleet then let us know and you could soon be stepping on board the Red Sea Aggressor III.

"Red Sea Aggressor III was great. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Everyone was very helpful and great atmosphere. The menu was quite limited for vegetarians/pescatarians. We ate the same meal three times in a row, which became quite boring. If the food were as good as it was on the first day, it would be amazing. Overall, it was an amazing experience and cannot thank the staff enough! " - Roxanna Korologu-Linden, UK, 30 June 2021 ...

"Nothing was too much effort for any of the crew; from the replacement dive computer to the hot towels provided after post dive showering on deck. Great food, excellent facilities - highly recommended!" - Mal Hartland, England, 28 August 2018 ...
"Staff was the best part of the trip - always helpful and at hand every moment – the best I have seen. Rooms were fine and comparable to other premium liveaboards
Food (esp. Breakfast) was a bit lacking for me as a vegetarian." - Dipen Mehta, UAE, 11 September 2017 ...
