Scuba Scene

Scuba Scene is one of the largest vessels on the Red Sea at 141 feet (43m) long and 30 feet (9m) wide. The boat comfortably and safely accommodates up to 26 guests over its four decks. This newly renovated vessel is one of the most luxurious dive boats serving the Red Sea. The decor is striking with rich wood tones throughout and sleek accents. For the convenience of divers, the dive deck features gear storage and camera tables. Two tenders are able to transfer divers to dive sites.

The chef and kitchen staff are extremely flexible in the types of flavorful foods they prepare on board. While the menu may showcase a dive guest’s native foods, we believe as adventurers divers are open to experiencing the culture and cuisine of a host destination.

The Red Sea offers divers trips from northern reefs with shipwrecks to southern islands, home to schools of hammerheads sharks. Each dive site offers extraordinary underwater adventures. Leading the All Star Red Sea operation is Ahmed Fadel and Elke Bojanowski, PhD. Protecting the marine environment is the dive operation’s underlying philosophy.

From stern to bow, the Red Sea dive liveaboard Scuba Scene is a first-class vessel. Few details have been left unattended. As quick example, the dive platform features two freshwater hoses and two stainless steel rinse tanks. The dive deck is well designed with a washer and dryer, ample equipment storage and camera tables with numerous international charging points.

The lower deck houses eight (8) twin-bed cabins plus one more on the upper deck. The main level features the dive deck and platform, spacious restaurant/dining area and four suites each with expansive windows and ample storage. The upper deck is home to a sundeck with beautiful teak wood and comfortable sun and shaded seating, a salon with multiple cozy seating areas and a bar or beverage station. One level up find another shimmering sundeck with sun and shaded seating and a flybridge with 360-degree views of the Red Sea.

The twin bed cabin* (#1-8 and 14) and the king-bed suites (#9-12) each feature a private bathroom with stone-tiled showers, mini-refrigerator and adjustable temperature controlled air conditioning.

As an added convenience, Wi-Fi (when in port), two refrigerators on the top sundeck and ice machines are available. A satellite phone is available for emergencies (fee). 

A minimum crew of 15 serves diving guests.

Dive All Star Scuba Scene

Red Sea dive liveaboard itineraries vary. Northern Red Sea trips include Ras Mohamed Nature Reserve, established as Egypt’s first national park in 1983, and the Straits of Tiran, the SS Thistlegorm and Abu Nuhas’ shipwrecks, plus hammerhead, silky, thresher and whale sharks. Southern trips highlight marine parks of Brothers Islands and Daedalus Reef. Oceanic whitetip sharks are seen at Elphinstone Reef, also one of our dive stops.

The types of experiences include:

Soft and hard corals range from Gorgonian fans to table corals, all with intense, vibrant colors. Moray eels, lionfish and batfish reside here along with numerous shark species.

Sharks & Shark Weeks

Dive with the sharks or simply observe. The Red Sea is home to the following species:  hammerheads, silkys, silvertips, grey reef, oceanic whitetips, threshers and whale sharks. Shark weeks occurs May to June and during the fall. Both times focus on swimming with and viewing sharks. The late spring/early summer trips provide experiences with hammerhead and grey reef sharks. During the fall, dive trips feature destinations known for whitetip shark sightings.

Cultural Adventures

Pre and post-tours can be added to your dive trip. The three most popular Egyptian tours are The Pyramids of Giza, southwest of Cairo, a Nile River cruise including Luxor or Aswan, and a city tour of Cairo with its rich historical and cultural attractions.

Kitesurfing Weeks

With its flat water, the Red Sea offers exceptional kitesurfing for all levels. Kite season, when the winds are most favorable, runs select weeks from April to October. Optimum locations are found in the Northern Red Sea in waters around Safaga, Soma Bay, El Gouna and Tawila Island. Kitesurfing is a group activity and typically arranged through a club or tour operator.
