Dive the best of the North Red Sea with MY Independence I

The water in Sharm el Sheikh's dive spots is clear and azur blue and usually warm. Visibility is often at 20-30m. Some of the most fascinating dive spots that start at Naama Bay and then travel Deep North in the Red Sea are waiting to reveal their gems to you. Savour the taste of diving there! Then after all the diving is done, sit back and relax at the Bar, enjoy a cool drink, some great food or spend some time on the Sundeck.

What you can expect

The My Independence 1 is 79 feet (24m) long and 21 feet (6.5m) wide. It has room to accommodate 12 Guests and makes this a perfect boat for Families and Friends or your Dive Group. To ensure your Dive Safari Holiday becomes a memorable experience, every aspect of My Independence 1's design, itinerary and menu have received detailed attention. The diving, the leisure activities and the luxury and comfort found aboard the My Independence 1 easily compare to those of any hotel on land.

The liveaboard is a beautiful Yacht, a platform for the restless modern-day Adventurers who want to get a glimpse of the underwater beauty of Sharm el Sheikh. The My Independence 1'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 Chef will make sure your energy levels stay high with superb food

The ships owners are convinced that great food is an absolute must for any liveaboard experience. The meals were designed by Divers because they know that the right food will provide an energy boost for subsequent dives. During the cruise you will always have free tea, coffee and water. You can purchase cold drinks, beer and wine at the Bar for a fee. Snacks will be available inbetween dives.

There are 3 cabin types aboard the My Independence 1: Double bed Cabin, Double bed Suite and Twin Beds Cabin. There is air conditioning on the boat. In your 'down time' between dives, the My Independence 1 provides several pass-times including Wake Boarding, Water Skiing and a more sedate Audio-video entertainment system.
