Dolce Vita is a large and comfortable 38m Red Sea liveaboard boat, managed by Seafari - an international dive operator that has over 30 years experience running several boats in Egypt. Dolce Vita was completely renovated in 2018 and can accommodate up to 24 people in 12 cabins.

All the cabins on board take advantage of the space provided by the vessel's 8m beam and are furnished with modern fittings. En-suite facilities and individually controlled air-conditioning are standard. There are double bed and twin bed cabins available. The sun deck features sun beds for guests to enjoy the sunshine, a seating area, and an open-air bar to enjoy drinks after a full day of scuba diving. The upper deck also has a large outdoor social area with comfy seats and bean bags. The Main deck is where you will find the air-con lounge with TV, music, board games.and fish books, as well as the dining area and dive deck. The amazing food onboard is one of the Dolce Vita's key selling points .

Diving operations are conducted from 2 motorised Zodiacs. There's also free nitrox available, a camera table and charge points, rinse tanks and a bathroom. Some of the liveaboard itineraries offer the possibility to visit the Red Sea's historic lighthouses, and there are beautiful walks in the late afternoon to enjoy the sunset.
