Liveaboard holidays offer guests greater diving flexibility compared to land based packages, and are more suited to the adventurous diver. Sleeping in comfort aboard your boat, you are granted the best of both worlds – the chance to explore remote and unspoilt reefs, and the freedom to enjoy the more popular sites in the quiet of the night and early morning, when the marine world is at its best. To join a Liveaboard, guests must hold a diving qualification equivalent to BSAC Sports Diver or PADI Advanced Open Water, with 30 logged dives, (50 for the marine parks and Sudan). All itineraries are subject to change according to weather conditions and government regulation. Diving World also offers mini liveaboard safaris from Mersa Alam for 3 and 4 night trips.
