MY blue Fin
Liveaboard At A Glance
MY blue Fin is a traditional, wooden liveaboard and offers guests comfortable, understated luxury.
The top deck is for sun worshipers and offers the best views! The upper deck has a seating area with tables and is open sided - so it's a nice area to relax between dives or with a coffee after dinner. All meals are served in the restaurant on the mid deck.
Three spacious King Suites, each spreading across the whole width of the vessel, are located at the bow of the lower and mid-decks. They offer a little extra luxury and are a popular choice for couples. All King Suites have a large double bed, air conditioning, personal entertainment system with large plasma TV, mini fridge and en-suite facilities. Eight of the Standard Cabins are located on the lower deck and one is on the upper deck - they all have twin beds, personal entertainment systems, mini fridges and en-suite facilities.
Dive briefings are given in the saloon area and diving will either take place from the dive platform at the back of the mid deck (if the vessel can anchor close to the dive site) or alternatively ribs are used. The guides have excellent experience of diving in the Red Sea and will make sure you get the most from your trip.

There are also a range of speciality itineraries to maximise learning and enjoyment including; Project Shark, HAYAH Reef Clean Up and an In Focus photography workshop run by Saeed Rashid. An expert panel of dive guides have been hand-picked to run these trips with optional evening seminars conducted to educate and entertain.
The northern parts of the Red Sea tend to have the easiest diving, with more challenging diving the further south you head and within the Marine Parks where there are more exposed reefs, deeper dives and stronger currents. Although the Straits of Tiran and the Deep South itineraries are suitable for less experienced divers. Visibility is crystal clear.
Marine Parks: Divers booking an itinerary that visits the Marine Parks (Brothers, Daedalus Reef, Rocky and Zabargad) must have a minimum of 30 logged dives and please note there is no night diving allowed in the Marine Parks. The exception to this is Ras Mohamed National Park where the diving is easy and night diving is allowed and there is no minimum number of dives required.
Thistlegorm: Egyptian regulations require divers to have a minimum of 20 logged dives if they wish to dive the Thistlegorm.
The MY blue Fin is fully equipped with a Nitrox membrane and is rebreather friendly.
