Lucy introduces a new standard of liveaboard to Djibouti, with a fresh decor and modern facilities on board
Djibouti is famous for the annual Whale Shark sightings. Each year, these magnificent creatures are spotted in the Bay of Tadjoura from late October to mid February. Grab your snorkel and fins - Whale Sharks are waiting for you! Divers and Snorkelers are welcome. This is a remote location and there's no better way to explore its rugged coastline than on board the region's newest liveaboard Lucy. Let this welcoming crew show you the very best of Djibouti's coral reef in between exhilarating encounters with Whale Sharks and Dolphins in the warm waters of the Gulf of Aden. Come and enjoy this beauty in the North tip of the Indian Ocean where it meets the South tip of the Red Sea.
In the months of March until June, visit the isolated and pristine waters of the Sudan. The vast array of diving landscape includes oblong shaped reefs, soft corals fringed in scenic reefs and of course, large pelagics. Divers will be astounded in this virtually un-dived area. Jacques Cousteau loved Sudanese waters and here is your chance to see why. With a variety of massive Gorgonians decorating vertical walls and the lurking Hammerheads are visible due to the amazing visibility - making this a Photographers paradise. There are many spectacular vertical walls as well as fascinating Ship Wrecks waiting to be explored including Jacques Cousteau's Pre-continente ll.
