At 22m in length, King Snefro 5 is one of the smaller liveaboards in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. It is the sistership of King Snefro 6 and was built in Alexandria in 1999 but underwent a major refit in 2018, It operates short dive safaris around the Red Sea's Sinai Peninsula - to the world famous Thistlegorm Wreck and Ras Mohamed National Park. Taking a maximum of only 8 guests per cruise, you can be sure of an intimate experience and plenty of personal attention from the boat crew.

You will spend your time relaxing indoors in the air conditioned saloon and dining area where you can enjoy TV, video and music system, and help yourself to snacks, soft drinks, drinking water, tea and coffee at any time. Otherwise you can stretch out on the liveaboard's sundeck, either soaking up the warm Egyptian sunshine or in the cool of the shade with a good book. The kitchen staff prepare delicious, mouth-watering meals: if you have special requests, such as a vegetarian diet, just let us know and they will gladly prepare something special for you.

There are 5 air conditioned cabins of which the 2 cabins have private ensuite facilities, and 3 cabins share 2 bathrooms. King Snefro 5 offers a fun liveaboard diving trip around the Northern Red Sea in small groups which makes it a great choice for a whole boat charter to dive around the Sinai Peninsula.
