Description and details

Diving on the VIP One in Egypt


This vessel has a length of 29.5m by 7.15m. VIP One is an excellent choice for a luxury diving expedition. The designers of this boat constructed the vessel with the aim of showing the most beautiful areas of Sinai and the Red Sea. Highly accomplished guides are always there for everyone’s safety and also to ensure that everyone receives a first class service during an outstanding week adventure.

Boat Interior

VIP One can welcome a total of 16 people to its eight comfortable, spacious and elegant cabins. Each room has an en-suite, air-conditioning and spacious storage for luggage. Located on the upper deck are the master cabins and the twin master cabins, both with ocean view windows. There are double or twin bunk-bed cabins on the lower deck of the vessel.

There is a spacious indoor dining room, with enough space for the whole passengers to dine together. There is an indoor saloon complete with audio and video entertainment, movie library and sun deck with comfortable futons for relaxation.


The buffet style meal has a wide selection of Egyptian and international dishes. Guests can savor the freshness of their meals at the covered outdoor lounge, bar area or the air-conditioned dining room. There are three main meals with a snack in between.

The chef onboard will serve biscuits, bread/toast and fruits for a snack. Complimentary drinks such as coffee, tea, drinking water, and juice are always available. However, soft drinks, wine, and beer are available for a price onboard. We also encourage guests to bring their preferred beverages on board to enjoy the holiday better. For special dietary restrictions, you may provide your requests upon booking for us to assist you better.

Dive Deck

There is a spacious dive deck and diving platform at the back of the boat. There is a battery charging station for underwater equipment and warm-water showers. Nitrox and rental equipment are available. For non-diving guests and children on board, they can explore the wonders of the ocean by snorkeling.


Itineraries include all the famous destinations of the Red Sea, including the Thistlegorm, Abu Hunass ship cemetery, and other wreck areas. Guns and trucks of the sunken ships still exist on these sunken ships. Marine Park has the most colorful huge corals and fish. Diving at Ras Mohamed is a great opportunity to meet a school of tuna, grey sharks, napoleon wrasse and sometimes hammerheads.

Everyone can visit these popular and remote areas all year round. Spring and autumn are considered the best option to visit the Red Sea sites.
