The Egypt liveaboard M.Y. Blue Fin is an economyliveaboard that operates some of the most popular routes in the northern and southern Red Sea. At 39m in length the boat can accommodate up to 24 guests in a range of 12 ensuite cabins which all feature TVs and entertainment on hard drive.

On safaris from Hurghada you can enjoy gearing up on the expansive large decks before entering the water. With tanks of air or nitrox you step down to the large dive platform. Depending on the site, you will either stride off the stern or step into a dive tender. The dive deck has camera tables, charging stations, juice and drinking water and 2 rinse showers. The facilities also allow for rebreather diving. Unusually, the dive deck features an area of comfortable bench seating where you can chat through your recent underwater highlights.

When not partaking of the diving action, guests can unwind in a number of different areas on board. Outdoor locations include the partially shaded top deck. Here you can sit on comfortable outdoor furniture, sun loungers or bean bags, catch some rays or enjoy a sundowner cocktail or 3 from the well-stocked bar. Others may prefer the air-conditioned environment of the saloon/dining area with its ample seating, TV, library and where the hot drinks and snacks are on hand to keep you refreshed.
