Liveaboard: Red Sea, Egypt
Saturday 8 to Saturday 15 April (Easter Saturday) 2017
Tornado Marine Fleet, through Scuba Travel
We have a great week planned on board Mistral, one of the award winning liveaboards from Tornado Marine Fleet. She has been laid out to optimise space on board and boasts a host of extra facilities to make your week all the more enjoyable including 2 sun decks and a jacuzzi. We are doing the Brothers and Wrecks Special itinery which takes in many of the clasic Red Sea dive sites including stunning wrecks such as the Thistlegorm, Dunraven, Carnatic, Rosalie Moller, El Mina and the tragic Salem Express as well as many of the beautiful reefs of the area including the Brothers which are well known for sharks and other pelagics. This itinerary is best suited to advanced divers and a minimum of 50 dives is strongly recommend for diving the Brothers, as it is remote, subject to strong currents with deep drop offs.
Our home for the week, Mistral, has four double cabins located on the upper deck and eight twin cabins on the lower deck. Each has an en-suite bathroom, air conditioning and safety deposit box. The upper cabins have one large double bed and the lower cabins have a large double lower bunk with an additional single upper bunk bed. Upstairs the saloon has a plasma screen for comprehensive dive briefings and there are 2 sun decks – the lower has a bar area and jacuzzi and the upper sun deck is vast and has plenty of space for everyone to lounge out. Mistral has extravagantly fast 1150Hp engines to get to the next dive site quickly and with 2 powerful RIBS, you will be the envy of others as you whisk past.
Several of the wrecks make for excellent technical dives and the warm waters take the discomfort out of long bottom times. The fabulous visibility also makes this a great choice for photographers. The size and scale of the wrecks visited are impressive and worth more than a shot or two. Sailing at night leaves more time for diving and enjoying the peaceful scenery during the day. The Brothers Wreck Special is a remarkable route that combines unmissable wrecks and astounding diving for a more advanced itinerary that will delight.
