Vita Xplorer - Review 2022
Vita Xplorer, a luxurious wooden vessel of 38.7 meters (approx. 127 feet) in length is a member of the Xplorer Fleet. The magnificent liveaboard offers the most exhilarating dive sites of Egypt, where you can explore the famous Ras Mohamed National Park, which is famous for the fascinating views of jackfish, barracudas, eagle rays and much more. Whereas, diving in the sites like Daedalus, Brothers, Abu Nuhas ship cemetery, and Elphinstone gives you an opportunity to enjoy the appearance of hammerheads and silvertip sharks. The most popular wreck of the Red Sea is Thistlegorm, where the divers can still witness the presence of trucks and motorcycles.
