Its historical attractions are World famous and include the Ancient Pyramids and Sphinx at Giza, as well as Nile cruises and the Valley of the Kings near Luxor.

What to expect from MY Independence II

The MY Independence II is the flagship of the Blue Water fleet. The ship is particularly impressive with its elegant lines and its enormous size with only 20 guests. The layout of the decks and superstructures make the ship look like an elegant yacht, yet it has a wealth of space thanks to its length of almost 40 meters.

All decks are covered with noble teak. On the first deck and sun deck there are seating areas as well as tables in the covered area. In the bow area and aft as well as on the second deck there is plenty of space for sunbathing.

The MY Independence II is 131 feet (40m) long and 28 feet (8.5m) wide. To ensure your Dive Safari holiday becomes a memorable experience, every aspect of MY Independence II's design, itinerary and menu have received detailed attention. The diving, the leisure activities and the luxury and comfort found aboard the MY Independence II easily compare to those of any hotel on land.

The liveaboard is a stunning Yacht, facilitating its travellers' journey into the mysterious Underwater World of the Red Sea. The MY Independence II's itineraries were arranged so the dive sites can be visited at the perfect time. Moreover, it differentiates itself from other liveaboards by providing the best in personalized accommodation, services and facilities. The ships owners believe that an army marches on its stomach, therefore even when sailing there's no reason to compromise on the quality of the food. They believe that a delicious snack or dinner prepared with love is the best way to ensure there is enough energy for the next dive! On the MY Independence II, you can choose from a buffet of delicious dishes.

The boat has 2 types of cabins: Twin bed cabin and Double bed cabin. Audio-video entertainment and a library are the guests' favorite leisure time activities and will ensure that you won't get bored.

Ports of Departure and How to Get There

Most visitors will arrive in Cairo and take a 1 hour Domestic flight with Egypt Air to their Port of departure, although some of the more popular Ports - Marsa Alam, Hurghada and Sharm el Sheikh have direct International flights too. 

Ports are detailed for every trip in the itinerary section The departure and return Ports can vary depending on the dates chosen. In some cases the boats are moored at Port and depart the day after the trip begins, so you can arrive quite late on the first day of the tour and still board the boat before it departs the following morning.
