With a contemporary and stylish feel, M/Y blue Horizon takes liveaboard luxury to a whole new level and is truly deserving of the title 'Liveaboard of the Year' awarded by DIVE and DIVER magazine in their recent industry awards.

The Itinerary...
Experience two of the finest areas in the Red Sea. A part of the marine park, the Brother Islands offer breath-taking underwater scenery, wall diving, wreck diving and an abundance of marine wildlife. The Northern part of this itinerary will allow you to explore some of the best wrecks that the Red Sea has to offer. An ideal itinerary for those wanting a taste of variety, allowing you to experience world famous wrecks and pristine reefs. 

The aim of 'Project Shark' is to highlight the global issues facing sharks, with a Red Sea focus, as well as enjoying some of the most spectacular reefs that the Red Sea has to offer. Founded by our expert dive guide and marine biologist, Elke Bojanowski Ph.D, in her quest to track and collect basic population data on oceanic whitetip sharks (Carcharhinus Longimanus), in the Egyptian Red Sea.

Big Brother
A 400 metre long island offering fabulous wreck diving and wall diving. The wreck of the Numidia lies on the northern tip between 10 and 80 metres. The north-west side of the island houses the wreck of the Aida. On every section of this reef the wall is covered with corals and life. 

Little Brother
Boasts a very high concentration of life within a very small area. Fan coral forests, overhangs, hard and soft corals in a variety of astonishing colours and of course there are plenty of fish! With regular sightings of hammerheads, thresher sharks, grey sharks and white tip reef sharks, at the right time of year. 

Daedalus Reef
This huge reef rises from the sea bed in the middle of the Red Sea. Easily recognized by its zebra-striped lighthouse, this massive reef offers some of the most amazing dives in the Red Sea. The sheer walls are covered in over-grown hard coral formations and a variety of reef fish. Napoleon wrasses and turtles are often cruising by, but make sure you keep your eyes open on the blue! Daedalus is one of those places where anything can happen... oceanic white tip reef sharks, grey reef sharks, a lonesome hammerhead shark or schools of them. The excitement and the sheer size of this reef means that you can do several dives and not get bored! 

Elphinstone Reef
A Red Sea legend. One of the most beautiful reefs, with north and south plateau's covered in hard and soft corals. This is a truly awesome reef.
