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.

 Tornado Marine Fleet

Tornado Marine Fleet has been operating in the Red Sea since 1989, and has accumulated valuable experience and knowledge t o develop a luxurious liveaboard fleet taken care of by a team carefully chosen over the years.

The luxuriously appointed M/Y Hurricane was launched in 2004. We have worked closely with the design team to launch the ultimate Red Sea Liveaboard. There has been no compromise when it comes to providing every comfort for her guests. M/Y Hurricane won "Liveaboard of the Year" in 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007, as voted by readers of the UK publication "Diver" Magazine.

Tornado Marine Fleet is proud to present the luxury liveaboard vessel M/Y Whirlwind. At 36 metres long and with a beam of 8 metres, M/Y Whirlwind is truly the grandest vessel in the fleet. She was built in Rushid, near Alexandria, of the finest wood and to the highest quality and sailed her maiden voyage to Sharm el Sheikh in May 2006. M/Y Whirlwind brings a whole new standard to Red Sea Liveaboards and we trust she will provide divers with many years of unlimited diving enjoyment in luxury and comfort, in the unique waters of the Red Sea. She is truly a world class liveaboard!
