Galaxy has enough room for all the necessary safety equipment needed for emergencies as well as life jackets for all the cabins and the saloon. Divers should bring along their certification for verification.
The Galaxy 720 can provide guests with some of the best dives in the Red Sea. There are 17 dives in total including night diving and venturing the most iconic wrecks and reefs of the northern Red Sea. Typically, guests will have the chance to make three dives and a night dive each day.
The Gordon Reef has a vast collection of reef fish, and white-tip reef sharks may be seen sleeping on sand patches. The Woodhouse Reef at Strait of Tiran is known to be the longest reef among the four reefs, and it is home to eagle rays and reef sharks. The Thomas Reef is the smallest reef in the strait and diving here may depend on specific weather condition since the currents are potentially strong. The SS. Thistlegorm is the most famous wreck in the Red Sea. It holds an enormous variety of marine life. Ras Mohamed is one of the most renowned dive sites in the world.
It is possible to visit Egypt all year long, but the best seasons to visit the dive sites are spring and autumn. Divers and non-divers may spend their holiday on board with professional dive guides and the crew, and this would be an unforgettable journey.
