Freedom III - Photo Gallery

Live-aboard Description


basic informations

We can offer mini-liveaboards from 2 nights to an unlimited number of days, so you can experience the whole of the northern Red Sea. A week on board will take you to such famous places as the Straits of Tiran, Ras Mohammed, the wrecks of the Thistlegorm and Dunraven or further still, to the Straits of Gubal with its unique reef, Abu Nuhas and its four wrecks. Our cabins are simply but comfortably furnished and on all our trips we take a RIB for additional safety and to give us the opportunity to dive on reefs where the larger boats cannot go. New for 2019 Freedom III will be departing every Monday and Thursday from the middle of May. Guests sleep on the boat the night before departure ensuring an early start the following day.

Safety is all important at Sharks Bay; all our guides and skippers are experienced in first-aid and environmental protection and participate in regular further training programs. With a variety of proposed itineraries; Mini-Wreck Thistlegorm, Mini-Tiran, Mini-Ras Mohammed & Tiran, Northern Wrecks & Reefs, Northern Standard, Deep North & Dahab, Ras Mohammed & Wrecks, Ras Mohammed &Tiran or Tailor-Made by you, there is something to suit everyone.

Join one of our Red Sea liveaboard diving holiday and experience the best dive sites in the Northern Red Sea. Enjoy 3 or more dives a day exploring some world famous dive sites, all in the company of like-minded divers.

Our Sharks Bay Umbi crew on board are second to none. They will do everything they can to make your Red Sea liveaboard a diving holiday to remember. Fresh food is prepared daily by one of our fabulous chefs using only locally sourced produce. There is also the added bonus of being able to depart and return from you diving safari from our own jetty. We also provide free Nitrox for suitable qualified divers.

Freedom III is a great choice for individuals, groups of friends and dive clubs. We will guarantee departure with a minimum of just 8 guests although she can easily accommodate up to a maximum of 20, all in air-conditioned cabins with en-suite facilities. Also available for Private Charter.
