Details

Cyclone (click for details)

Designed by divers and expertly crewed, Cyclone retains a welcoming atmosphere and it this that draws divers back to her year after year for their hard earned Red Sea holiday.   Cyclone is a lovely liveaboard with 20 cabins, all with en-suite bathrooms and air conditioning. 

 

There is a comfortable communal saloon and dining area,  sun deck and an outside bar and jacuzzi and spacious dive deck.  

 

We are doing the famous Wrecks and Reefs itinery which includes the beautiful reefs in the Tiran and Ras Mohammed areas as well as the wrecks of the Thistlegorm, Kingston, Dunraven, Rosalie Moller and the numerous wrecks in the Abu Nuhas area (the Marcus, Giannas D and Chrisola K).

 

The Northern Red Sea is teaming with the unique ecology that makes the region truly world class. The gentle sloping coral gardens play host to thousands of brightly coloured fish. 19th and 20th century wrecks have formed artificial reefs and Surgeon fish dart through port holes while glass fish swarm idly by. Macro life is abundant and cleaning stations pulse with the day’s traffic. Blue spotted sting rays, eagle rays and manta abound and the summer months see large pelagic sharks gather on the drop off. Hammerheads, Black Tips, leopard and even tiger sharks all visit the region.

 

The reefs of Jackson, Woodhouse, Thomas and Gordon in Tiran stand out for their lush coral gardens, sweeping drift dives and large gorgonian formations. We'll also dive Shark and Yolanda as well as some of the lesser dived sites in the area such as Small Crack and Bluff Point before moving onto the wrecks which make the Northern Red Sea a wreck diver’s delight. The almighty Thistlegorm is the setting for unforgettable diving, and we'll get to dive it by day and night. The Kingston, Dunraven, Abu Nuhas and Rosalie Moller only add to the excitement.
