Red Sea

UD Rating – 4 Star


A multiple award-winning safari boat designed to meet the needs of true divers.

Far beyond the mainland, diving down into the depths of the Red Sea, this liveaboard offers not only unforgettable dive adventures, but also a first class service on the beautiful dive cruise ship M/Y Longimanus.

The 36m long luxurious wooden yacht is equipped with state-of-the-art diving and safety equipment. Exclusive design, excellent cuisine and experienced dive guides will make your stay on board an unforgettable experience.

Two powerful engines bring you to the most remote dive sites in no time at all. Width and layout allow a smooth and comfortable trip even in rough waters. Our boat, the kitchen crews’ service, and the freshly prepared meals do not have to fear being compared to a luxury hotel.

The Longimanus Crew along side captain Ahmed are at least 10 and is among the best crews in the Red Sea. Languages on board are English and Arabic. Our guides are happy to help with possible language difficulties and are always there for you in case you have any questions.

Let yourself be pampered by our professional crew, who will do their best to make your holiday a very special experience.
The Longimanus was built in Suez and completed in October 2003 in Safaga. With the construction of this ship it met Mahmoud Abd El Hady (owner of the Barakuda dive centers in Safaga and Lahami Bay) childhood dream.
