M/Y Thunderbird

To offer our guests the maximum of a diving adventure, safety, comfort and relaxation, we have brought our many years of safari experience to bear in all areas of MY Thunderbird. The boat crew, most of whom have been with us for many years, provide a relaxed and familiar atmosphere. Functional cabins, the cozy saloon and the well thought out outdoor areas offer a lot of space for diving preparation, for eating and for relaxing. We are known for our delicious food on board. A specially trained chef in the team pamper our guests with international and Egyptian cuisine. For individual bookings MY Thunderbird accommodates a maximum of 16 guests. Up to 18 guests are possible for full charters (surcharge) and for children/family safaris. This number of guests is an attractive option for groups and clubs. Our safaris are accompanied by experienced German/English-speaking dive guides. In addition to the diving procedures they are also the contact persons for all other matters on board.
