  • This is a vessel for real divers who want thrills, not frills, and who put underwater experiences above luxury amenities, but still enjoy high standard service
  • If you book King Snefro 5, you may well end up on her identical twin sister King Snefro 6 as these boats are used interchangeably and offer the same incredible experience
  • While the boat is smaller in size than others in the fleet, there is actually more space per guest. It's ideal for small groups of friends, and smaller groups mean more flexibility
  • Go in search of big fish; mantas and sharks, and enjoy drift dives, steep walls, caverns, mysterious wrecks and vibrant reefs
  • Dive on the world-famous Ras Mohamed National Park and explore the sunken merchant navy ship of the SS Thistlegorm wreck
  • Between dives, go snorkeling or explore above the surface on a guided shore excursion, then end your action-packed day with dinner and panoramic views of the magnificent seascapes
