The Sea Story is a large 44m long wooden hull motor yacht that operates liveaboard diving trips to the best sites in the Red Sea. Built in Safaga in 2022, the boat is modern and, with its twin 1,000 HP Doosan engines, it can cruise at a spritely 14 knots.

The boat can accommodate 36 guests in a choice of cabins across 3 decks, including upper deck seaview double bed suites. Each cabin has a private bathroom fitted with a shower cubicle. 3 delicious buffet spreads are served each day in the air-conditioned restaurant on the main deck, together with fresh fruit, pastries and juice. There are 4 dining tables, a service and drinks counter. Guest needs are attended to by a professional and friendly crew

The upper deck has a saloon lounge with entertainment system - TV/DVD/music and wifi network - and a bar area where you can chat with fellow guests about the day's diving highlights. There is a small area in front of the captain's cabin where you can take the sun, but the main sundeck is on the flybridge where you can find sun loungers and a guest hot tub.

The dive deck has plenty of space for everyone to kit up. There are 2 motorised tenders for transporting divers to the sites. The guides will accompany each dive to ensure you get to see and enjoy as much as possible of the Red Sea. Nitrox is provided by the membrane system and the dive platform has 2 ladders for comfortable egress.

Sea Story sees the global scuba diving community as one big family, they are passionate divers and believe that the love of the sea and its beauty is what connects us all. They endeavour to make all divers to feel right at home.
