Cyclone has long been a favourite with UK divers for exporing the magnificent wrecks and lavish reefs of the Egyptian Red Sea. Winning "Liveaboard of the Year" in 2003, Cyclone has undergone several upgrades over the years, keeping her up to the same exceptional standards as the rest of the fleet. Designed by divers and expertly crewed, Cyclone retains a welcoming atmosphere and it this that draws divers back to her year after year for their hard earned Red Sea holiday.

Cyclone is 32m from bow to stern and her sturdy wood hull is a stable home away from home. 20 divers can be easily accommodated over 10 twin cabins. For your complete comfort, all of the cabins are en suite, have individual air con and plenty of space to stow your belongings for the week. There are 2 twin cabins on the main deck, 6 twin cabins below decks and 2 bow cabins which have bunks. All cabins are pre-allocated at the time of booking.

Cyclone features the tried and tested lay out of all Tornado Marine Fleet vessels. The all important dive deck is spaciously laid out so everyone can kit up without fighting for space. Head to the main deck dining room at meal times and an outstanding feast awaits. The upstairs saloon is complete with bar and plasma screen is a focal point at the end of the day or during surface intervals. Or escape from it all on extensive sun deck, complete with sun beds and jacuzzi. Cyclone is a true Red Sea classic liveaboard that easily meets the high standards of Scuba Travel's modern Red Sea liveaboards.

22 August 2014

I wanted my teenage children to add to their diving skills through further training and guided leisure dives in a more challenging environment. A Red Sea live-aboard seemed ideal. SMG made all arrangements (flights, transfers, on-board PADI training and hire equipment) and accompanied us throughout the trip. Local representatives in Sharm el Sheikh ensured that passage through immigration and customs on arrival and departure was hassle-free and that coach transfers were comfortable. The boat was well maintained by a friendly and helpful crew and knowledgeable guides. SMG‘s training was to the expected high standard contributing to a rewarding and safe diving experience. John, Caterham School parent from Cyclone August 2014
