Nemo is managed by the international dive operator, Dune. Unlike the fish of its name, the yacht is a true pioneer that roams the north east African coastline, providing liveaboard cruises in the Red Sea of Egypt and Sudan, as well as in Djibouti. You could explore the caverns and tunnels of St John's in the deep south of Egypt, explore Cousteau's abandoned undersea laboratory in the shark-rich waters of Sudan, or venture where few have gone before and dive in the remote 7 Brothers of Djibouti, a region famed for whale shark encounters.

Nemo was constructed in Safaga in 2003, and underwent a complete renovation in 2011. It is a 31m long wooden hull motor yacht and accommodates 22 guests in twin bed cabins or a double bed suite. Each cabin has a private bathroom. The boat has a run-of-the-house cabin allocation booking system, but guests can pay a small premium to pre-select their preferred cabin.

Meals are served in the dining area in the air-conditioned saloon. The lounge has a TV, and this is where guests can relax and watch a film from the onboard movie library. The upper deck has a shaded, open air seating area and a bar where guests can socialise and enjoy a drink or two after each day of scuba diving. The sun deck is open to the African sunshine, and is fitted with padded seating and bean bags.

Although some dives are made dircet from the dive platform on Nemo, most of the diving is done from the 2 motorised dinghies that are used to shuttle divers to the sites. Nitrox is provided free of charge by the membrane system. The dive guides are European and Egyptian and are passionate about diving, well trained, and know all the regions very well. This means they are familiar with the seasonal changes in dive conditions and can choose the best sites based on that information, diver experience and guest wishes every time. They balance their duty of care with plenty of fun, sharing anecdotes, tips and stories, to ensure a pleasurable and friendly atmosphere onboard. So if you are searching for an alternative dive destination and have that pioneer spirit, why not join a Nemo liveaboard safari in Sudan or Egypt?
