MY Sea Serpent Contessa is a classy, well-appointed liveaboard with an emphasis on southern week-long Red Sea diving cruises from Hurghada or Port Ghalib.

With a maximum of 24 passengers and 12 crew, you can expect quite an intimate experience with plenty of personal service. Guests can relax in the main deck saloon or on the upper deck saloon/dining area, both of which are air-conditioned. The main deck saloon features high-end audio visual entertainment facilities and a free internet facility. The cabins are all en-suite and are twin share or double bed, with 8 being on the lower deck and 4 on the main deck offering better views and more natural light.

The dive deck is very large and with wooden bench seating around the perimeter with diver stations and central hanging rails, meaning there is plenty of space to move around when kitting up. You will enter and exit the water at the dive platform where there is a rinse tank for camera and 2 fresh water hoses.

The well-maintained interior of Sea Serpent Contessa is furnished in teak with comfortable seating areas. The main outdoor social areas are the shaded outdoor space on the upper deck and the large sun-exposed sun deck with sun mats and sofa-bench seating. If you are looking for a quality Red Sea liveaboard experience with an experience diving cruise operator in Hurghada, you can count on the MY Sea Serpent Contessa.
