MY Heaven Freedom is one of the first class line from the Heaven fleet of liveaboards in the Red Sea. The Heaven diving boats have a reputation for luxury and quality and Freedom is refurbished twice annually to ensure as-good-as-new furnishings. So there is always plenty of comfort as you tour the best of the Southern Red Sea dive sites onboard the Freedom.
MY Heaven Freedom is a sleek white liveaboard, comfortably accommodating up to 22 scuba divers across 9 cabins with en-suite bathrooms, although most trips depart from Port Ghalib with fewer than the maximum number of guests. At 31m in length, it is a medium sized liveaboard but there are always places to find a quiet spot. There is a large saloon/dining area where you can enjoy the entertainment system and library, but most guests tend to relax either in the covered open-air section of the upper deck or soaking up the rays on the sundeck.
Further evidence that MY Heaven Freedom is a well planned boat can be seen in the 2 dive decks and, once your tanks are in place, they will not be moved between dives, as they are filled directly in their station.
With a top speed of 14 knots, nitrox available and complimentary onboard internet, bathrobes and towels for the cabins, you can be sure that you are on a Red Sea liveaboard diving cruise of some distinction. So for tasteful dé cor, a well-maintained and smoothly run operation, and some of the Southern Red Sea's best diving, MY Heaven Freedom is a great choice.
