Description

A mystical and fascinating underwater world awaits you in the Red Sea  

Liveaboard Diving in the Red Sea is spectacular, the land known for its ancient history, Pharaohs and Pyramids, is also a Mecca for Scuba Divers and Snorkellers. Wrecks, colourful corals and big fish abound but it's the off-shore sites only reachable by dive liveaboards which can provide the ultimate thrill and the best experience.

Egypt and Sudan share not only a land border but are also linked by the sea. The Deep South of the Egyptian Red Sea flows seamlessly into Northern Sudanese waters. The marine life that abounds in this region shares no respect for any geographic boundaries. On what is quite plainly a singular and action packed 2 week itinerary, this incredible and diverse marine ecology can now be enjoyed over the course of one liveaboard trip.

What you can expect

The impressive Yacht, was exclusively built to serve as the trusted vessel for today's discoverers on their journey to shed light on the hidden secrets of the Red Sea. Royal Evolution is a sleek 39m. The sheer stature of this four decker as it towers over the water with purposeful style and once onboard, the enticing comfort and class of the accommodation are two fantasic reasons to choose the Royal Evolution.
There are 8 guest cabins in the Lower Deck and 4 Main Deck cabins. All have air-conditioning, en-suite bathroom - with tub shower, fridge, TV and video player. 2 of the Main Deck cabins are Twins and 2 are Doubles. There is a supplement to be paid at the time of booking for the Main Deck cabins so please do ask if they are of interest to you. With choices of 2 Sundecks and an enormous Saloon there is always a peaceful corner for relaxing. The Bar and Jacuzzi form the social hubs of the boat. 

The owner believes that an army marches on its stomach, therefore even when sailing around the Red Sea there's no reason to compromise on the quality of the food.

When building this liveaboard the goal was to build something unique, not only in design, but also in service. After all, a delicious snack or dinner made with love and devotion will ensure that there is enough power for the next underwater adventure. Instead of the predominant liveaboard food, the Royal Evolution provides clients at the top end of the World's adventure holiday market with all the facilities of a first class hotel, a spacious dining area is the place for hearty meals, relaxed conversation and the beginnings of friendship. After a day's diving and an evening of wining and dining there are times when an armchair beckons. Comfortable lounge areas are amply provided in the air conditioned interior.
