Al Farouk is a 33m long Red Sea liveaboard cruising the marine parks at 15 knots, powered by twin 610 HP engines. These week-long safaris are to some of the top destinations including Brothers, Daedalus and Elphinstone as well as Ras Mohamed and The Tiran Strait.

With a maximum capacity of 24 guests, there are 12 air-conditioned cabins with en-suite bathrooms. Guests have a variety of relaxation areas to choose from both indoors and in the open air. Outside you can choose to catch some rays on the bridge/sundeck or enjoy the shaded open-air lounge area on the upper deck which comes with plenty of soft seating options, music and even a bar! Indoors you can relax in the saloon area with a book or enjoying the TV and music system. There is even a self-service bar here, plus the dining area where meals are enjoyed.

You will gear up at your individual diver station on the sun deck, each of which has underseat crates for all your smaller bits of equipment. The dive deck also features a nitrox system, 3 compressors and refreshing freshwater showers. You will step onto 1 of 2 fast zodiacs that will whisk you away to the drop point for each underwater adventure. Al Farouk may not be fancy but it is not lacking in comfort or facilities and is a great value option for those seeking a budget-friendly liveaboard.
