The 43.5m Red Sea Aggressor IV 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 26 guests can be accommodated on Red Sea Aggressor IV in 11 double or twin share ensuite staterooms. Each cabin has a 32-inch flatscreen TV with a selection of 400 movies, TV shows and documentaries. Guests are also able to plug their computers into the TV to view and edit their underwater photos and videos.
Socialising takes place in the lounge on the upper deck, or the large and comfortable saloon on the lower 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, play games, or read books and magazines. Alternatively you can chill out in the loungers or 2 hot tubs on the partially covered sundeck, or enjoy an end of day drink in the cocktail bar 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. 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 IV.

"The service from the crew, with one exception, was outstanding. I mean everyone outside of one guide and the guy filling our tanks. The tank filler was not concerned with maintaining the water proof integrity of the 1st stage regulators.
The diving was just a little better than 'OK'. There were not enough dive guides and of the 3 we had one was only a little above average., one was below average, and one was someone I would love to dive with all the time. In short, the above water experience topped the underwater experience. I may have had too high of an expectation with respect to the Red Sea.
On at least 2 other trips plus this one, all booked with Dive The World, rep. Vic has been super helpful. Thanks again Vic. I would use your service again and recommend you in a minute." - Tom Sikorski, USA, 23 July 2023 ...
