MY Snefro Pearl is a Green Fins-certified Egypt liveaboard taking a maximum of 12 people on northern Red Sea cruises, departing from Sharm El Sheikh and including short 3 night dive tours visiting the SS Thistlegorm. It is a great option for those wanting comfort and style, but in small groups, and for a shorter cruise than average. There are also some 7 night cruises all around the Sinai Peninsula region.

There is air-conditioning throughout and you can always find a quiet spot to relax. The main social areas on board include the spacious saloon and the dedicated dining area, both on the main deck. The dining area has sweeping panoramic views to enjoy while you feast on a range of international and Egyptian dishes. Unusually there is a 2nd saloon on the upper deck. Guests can enjoy the entertainment facilities including flat screen TV and central music system, as well as free Wifi internet, subject to mobile coverage.

You can also enjoy an evening drink from either the restaurant or the sundeck bar after a fun day's diving. For those who prefer the open-air settings, there is both a large partially shaded sundeck with multiple lounging options, as well as a shaded seating area to the stern.

When you dive from this 29m wooden-hulled motor yacht you can enjoy free nitrox, 12 and 15 litre tanks, and a dive deck equipped with fresh-water showers and toilet for post-dive stress relief. Between the dives, sweet and salty snacks are served. Water, coffee, tea and soft drinks are also available throughout the day. Dive, sleep and eat in Sharm El Sheikh in the stylish surroundings of the M.Y. Snefro Pearl liveaboard.

    Customer reviews:

    Customer rating - Excellent
    "My bouyancy is really bad and I didn't expect Thistlegorm to have so many small compartments! Very thankful to have a very patient & encouraging diving instructor. He carried me through small windows, doors and wall cracks during the dive and allow me to hook onto him. He wants more people to enjoy diving rather than be discouraged & give up diving totally. He is a very passionate diver!" - , Singapore, 6 March 2023 ...
