The luxury Red Sea liveaboard that sets the standard.
M/Y Scuba Scene was launched in April 2023 and is the ultimate luxury steel-hulled liveaboard located in the Red Sea. She is 48 m long, fitted to rigorous safety standards, and makes a great home away from home to enjoy some of the world’s most spectacular dive sites.
She is spacious, comfortable, and beautifully laid out, with a maximum capacity for 28 diving guests. Two large speedboats fitted with tank racks and dive ladders make life easier for divers – no more being hauled into a rib and face-planting on the dive gear. With no bedrooms on the lower deck, it means engine noise won’t spoil your sleep!
This boat comes highly recommended for shark and pelagic lovers, Tech divers, and fans of coral reefs and wrecks – a luxury yacht, friendly crew, knowledgeable guides, and delicious food.

WHAT MAKES SCUBA SCENE THE BEST LIVEABOARD IN THE RED SEA?
Expertly run by Ahmed Fadel & Elke Bojanowski, the layout of M/Y Scuba Scene shows their combined work experience on Egyptian liveaboards. The kitchen and spacious dining area are in the lower deck (hull). All guest cabins are on the main or upper deck, so large windows and plenty of distance to the engine room make for comfortable, quiet and light accommodation.
Camera preparation and charging areas are very spacious, a washing machine & dryers are available to the guests, and a saltwater swimming pool & jacuzzi offer relaxation opportunities to all. Our large salon as well as the TV room offer inside chilling areas, both fitted with large screens. A number of sundecks with both shaded and sunny sections give the guests a choice of where and how to enjoy the surface intervals.
Scuba Scene runs special trips including shark weeks, tec weeks and photography-focussed itineraries.
All of the popular Red Sea itineraries including Brothers, Daedulus and Elphinstone, North, North & Tiran, as well as the Deep South are available.
The boat embarks/disembarks from either Marriott Marina in Hurghada or Port Ghalib, depending on season and itinerary

The team managing the boat consists of two people with years of experience in the Red Sea diving industry, especially liveaboards, Ahmed Fadel and Dr. Elke Bojanowski.
Ahmed is a tech instructor, that has worked in different areas of diving over the last 20 years, mostly on liveaboards. He is the current operations manager of TDI/SDI Middleast and one of the most well known and respected Tec divers in the Red Sea.
Elke ‘aka The Shark Lady’ is famous amongst the dive community and is a divemaster, guide and biologist specialising on the study of Red Sea shark populations, and the founder of the Red Sea Sharks Trust, a registered charity for shark awareness and conservation. She has worked on Egyptian liveaboards for over 16 years and is probably the Red Sea’s number shark expert!
