Description and details
Diving on the JP Marine in Egypt
It can welcome 28 guests in 14 twin cabins that offer centralized rooms over two decks. The twin cabins have side by side beds with storage, climate control and en-suite bathrooms with a hot-water shower, sink and toilet. This spacious yacht has cozy cabins that are ideal for sleeping and relaxing after a day of diving. The upper deck windows have slightly large windows and the cabins are located far from the engine to ensure a peaceful night’s sleep.
Guests will enjoy their time with JP Marine’s onboard facilities. There is a big fully air-conditioned saloon with an audio and visual entertainment system. They can also relax and take time to enjoy the ocean view from the 2 sundecks. One is a shaded sundeck, good for napping and reading while the other one is ideal for sun-bathing. Both sundecks are a great spot to relax in-between dives or share experiences between fellow divers. You may also share your safari with friends and family back home by using the yacht’s free Wi-Fi.
The professional and experienced crew speaks English and Arabic to accommodate all your needs during the journey.
Diving at JP Marine takes place from an ample space dive platform that can be found at the back of the boat.
