The South Moon is a liveaboard operating out of Sharm El Sheikh. It specialises in tours of the Sinaki Peninsula to world famous sites such as the Thistlegorm wreck, Ras Mohamed and the Straits of Tiran. At 27m long, it may seem quite small compared to some of the other boats, but it was completely overhauled in 2013/14, with a new design, cabins, new electrics, engines, and plenty of space on its main and upper decks and flybridge.

This wood hull boat accommodates up to 18 guests in a fully air-conditioned cabins with en-suite bathrooms. There is a spacious sun deck on the flybridge with bean bags and comfy seating, plus a large open air social area on the upper deck.

The air-conditioned saloon has a lounge area with 2 large flat screen TVs with USB connection, and free wifi. The dining area is where you can enjoy 3 buffet meals per day of international cuisine, including vegetarian, seafood, chicken, meat, and kosher diet. Fresh fruit, tasty cookies, drinking water, soft drinks, tea are available all day round.

The dive deck is wide and neatly organised. It has fresh-water showers as well as a bathroom. Nitrox is available for EANx certified divers. There are 2 Zodiacs to whisk divers out the best sites, and the dive platform has 2 egress ladders for easy access to and from the water. South Moon is now well equipped with safety and navigational equipment, to ensure and trouble free and enjoyed diving cruise in the northern Red Sea.

South Moon may not be a luxury Red Sea liveaboard but it is comfy and homely. It priides itself on serving great food on its cruises, and divers leave, not as being a guests, but rather as being friends.
