Liveaboard in the Red Sea is one of the most interesting experiences that you must do at least once in a lifetime. Living onboard a boat is all about diving, relaxing, sunbathing, eating, and sleeping. What else can we ask for?
In order to enjoy this experience, it is very important to take your time to search for two factors:

"Dive-Hurghada liveaboard trips" are the right choice for you for the following reasons:
Reason #1: We are experienced
When you join a Dive-Hurghada liveaboard, be sure that you will dive with dive guides and instructors experienced in diving over 60 dive sites in the Red Sea.
Upon check-in of our guests, we make sure to do a boat briefing, to get them familiar with the boat and the available facilities. We also inform them about their designated spaces for equipment and how to seek help in case of emergency. Before each dive, we insist on doing a clear briefing of the diving plan to make sure that everyone is on the same page and aware of what we will do in the dive. After each dive, we make sure to do a debriefing of the dive, especially in cases of distress or deviation from the original diving plan, to ensure that we learn from our experiences and avoid any slips in the next dive.
So, when you are on a Dive-Hurghada liveaboard, rest assured that everything is planned 😊
Reason #2: We follow standards
We are conscientious divers. The safety and security of our guests and crew are of the utmost priority in our operation. We abide by the standards of both PADI international and CDWS.
We care for our guests’ lives. It is not a matter to be taken lightly. Upon check-in, every guest onboard must sign a medical statement attesting that he is fit to dive. Also, every guest receives a welcome kit containing the rules of safety on board.
We have a record of boat lists every day and we get our guests to log in every dive’s details to ensure that we have a clear diving profile for every guest. This profile can come in handy in extreme cases of diving emergencies.
Before each dive, we always apply the "Buddy System" and our guides ask our guests to do a buddy check before entering the water to ensure full readiness for the dive to maximize the fun and reduce any potential hazards.
Onboard our boats, we have a first aid full kit, encompassing different types of medications (anti-diarrhea pills, sea-sickness pills, headache pills, drops for ear, eye, and nose, …etc) a well as 2 cylinders of oxygen for any diving emergency.

Reason #3: We prevent the spread of COVID-19
We pride ourselves on being among the first boats in Hurghada to get the approval of the ministry of health, CDWS, and the ministry of tourism to operate again right after the end of the lock down. We abide strictly by WHO recommendations to prevent the spread of the virus by constantly cleaning and sanitizing every part of the boat around the clock, especially shared bathrooms, and commonly used surfaces. We use approved detergents and sanitizers to clean and sanitize cabins every day. Everywhere around the boat, we have awareness signs related to this matter. And we properly sanitize the diving equipment to ensure that no virus is spread among our facilities.
All our crew members are certified from First Response Training International as they passed the online training for Airborne Pathogens during the lockdown. We have sanitizers’ dispensers spread everywhere and we motivate our guests to always keep on practicing healthy habits during the trip.

Reason # 7: We Operate our business with a higher cause in mind
The Red Sea is not just a geographical location. Not just a water surface for activities or a beach to relax. The Red Sea is one of “The” main touristic attractions in Egypt and contributes to offering many job opportunities for so many people. Therefore, preserving this treasure is as important as using it. At Dive-Hurghada, we understand the value of the Red sea and we contribute with everything in our hands to protecting it against any act of abuse.
During our boat briefings, we tell our guests about the importance of marine life and the dangers facing it. We also make sure to give them tips on how they can contribute to reducing pollution in the red sea.
We have signs everywhere onboard reminding guests not to throw toilet paper inside the toilet, as it goes directly to the sea and harms the marine life. We reduce our footprint of plastic use by encouraging guests to use their own refillable water flasks, use wood-based tableware, or use normal tableware. We also use sea friendly washing soaps.
So, when you are on a Dive-Hurghada liveaboard, know that you are preserving the Red Sea 😊
