Red Sea Liveaboard for Families October 2021
Join us for a family friendly week to the Red Sea. We will be guided by Dr. Elke Bojanowski who will give talks on marine conservation and how we can help maintain healthy oceans for future generations. This itinerary combines some of the prettiest reefs where you can spot rays, turtles, colourful fish and even possibly sharks and dolphins.
As well as pristine reefs there will also be the chance to dive historical wrecks such as the Carnatic and Thistlegorm.
Dr Elke Bojanowski (the Shark Lady) has been in the Egyptian Red Sea since 2004 also heads up the fantastic charity www.redseasharks.org. As well as attempting to find a few sharks, she will do regular talks throughout the week on the different shark species in the Red Sea, how to dive with sharks safely, why sharks are so important to the health of our oceans, the plight of sharks and how you can help her research and general marine biology.
The week will offer the opportunity to:– Enjoy fantastic diving on some of the most unique Red Sea reefs – Experience potential close encounters with a huge variety of marine life, hopefully dolphins and fingers crossed, some friendly sharks.
For this trip we will be aboard the luxurious yacht Scuba Scene. M/Y Scuba Scene is a steel-hulled liveaboard, 43 m long and 9 m wide., fitted to rigorous safety standards. She is spacious, comfortable and beautifully laid out, with a maximum capacity for 26 diving guests. Two large speedboats fitted with tank racks and dive ladders are supporting the diving activities.
You will need to be a minimum of Open Water, 13 years old and 15 logged dives. To do some of the dives you will need to be Advanced open water.
