Hurricane stands out in the Egyptian Red Sea - and not just because she is one of the few steel hulled vessels. Many Red Sea liveaboards are compared to Hurricane, but few are as enduringly popular. She has won the prestigious "Liveaboard of the Year" award no less than 3 times and in 2013 she has had a complete refit, including new air conditioning throughout, new plumbing and new teak decks. Fans of Hurricane often cite the superb diver comfort, thoughtful layout and highly experienced crew as the reasons they keep coming back year after year.

At 36m there is bags of space on board Hurricane. No detail was over looked when she was built and she is continually renovated to maintain the highest standards. There are 11 cabins in total spilt over the main and lower deck. The 4 main deck cabins are a mix of twin or double beds (with an additional single bed). The lower deck cabins are all twins apart from the bow cabins, which have a double bed and additional single bed. Cabins are allocated at the time of booking so do ask your travel consultant if you have a specific request. All have individual air con, en suite bathrooms, a fridge and safe box.

You will instantly recognise what has become the Tornado Marine Fleet signature design. The dining and saloon areas are divided to provide optimum comfort at all stages of the trip. Upstairs opens up into the AC saloon with the bar, flat screen and seating area. Outside there is a seated deck (ideal for your post dive tales), the upper sun deck and loungers and jacuzzi. Down on the dive deck extras include an air gun for cameras, high pressure gas bending facilities (including trimix), nitrox compressor and gear storage. The steel hull and low dive platform make Hurricane a stable ride in even the bumpiest of weather and entry and exits are easy. Hurricane has it all - and it is easy to see just why divers fall in love with her.

The chefs do an excellent job with a tiny kitchen. They catered very well for members of the group with special food requirements and always had a great choice available. James Bertram

22 November 2016

Excellent crew and dive guides. All the time as helpful as possible and really good fun. Kareem and Adel made the dives and briefings easy and fun. The crew was incredibly helpful not just diving but during the whole trip at any time. Always friendly and smiley. Couldn’t ask for nothing better LQ

22 November 2016

Really great boat – loved it as much as two years ago. Clean, comfortable and run with exceptional proficiency and professionalism. An amazing crew PG

22 November 2016

Great boat – steady in the water and fast crossings. Plenty of hot water, comfortable beds. This was the best liveaboard trip I have had. Really great bunch of people and good fun. I would choose this liveaboard above my previous trips with Blue O Two because of the quality of food and guides, but mostly because this trip has been so much fun. A good mix Lesley

22 November 2016

Having worked as guides for years this trip has been great, the briefings are nice a clear and very clear. They have been very attentive and interactive with the whole boat. Top marks for both guides this trip. Keith and Polly

22 November 2016

The food was really good – with lots of choice and I was particularly impressed by the special effort made to accommodate veggies and others with specialist dietary requirements Jo Bray

22 November 2016

The guides and crew are absolutely fantastic. I liked their approach and found them both different personalities that worked well. Nasser was fab at finding the marine life. The crew were particularly helpful. The best crew that I have had in years, and I do lots of trips every yea Jessica Cox

Absolutely the best ever weeks diving onboard hurricane (09/11/16) simply the best itinerary.. thanks to all crew and guides kareem and Annette Everaers and that other fella who was hanging around and generally getting in the way Adel M. El Beialy ... and all the other guests as well !! Same time next year .... thank you all !!! Glyn Hawes

06 October 2016

the group have had a great holiday, great diving with turtles, hammer heads and oceanic white tip sharks, dolphins, some rays, and great reefs. The food was great and the crew were really good entering into the madness that my group brings to the week. All such good fun. The guides (Kareem and Mohammed) were also very good both in terms of their guiding skills but again also entering into the groups antics and always interacting with us, eating with us and spending time with us during breaks in diving and in the evenings. Gary Barnes

The boat is superbly equipped and the steal hull makes the ride more relaxing when the seas get up. I can't praise the crew and dive guides enough. From superb and informative dive briefings, to the crew helping you in and out of the boat with your kit, to the hot chocolates at the end of your night dives. You will be hard pushed to find better service and support than we received. I look forward to seeing them all again next year Matt Westgate

06 September 2016

Great crew, very friendly and very helpful. Good laugh too, which made for a really fun week. Top marks to Gomma for spotting the group of Hammerheads. Simon

06 September 2016

Superb boat – lots of space on the dive deck, air conditioning and very comfortable to sail on overnight. Cabins were cleaned every morning. The crew were excellent all week. They worked very hard and couldn’t do enough to help. The dive guides were very knowledgeable and knew exactly were to dive to get the best experience Ben Marsden

06 September 2016

Superb boat – one of the best many of us have been on. Very comfortable, good layout, nice cabins, air conditioning, shower/toilet area of good size. Very well cleaned by the crew Mark, Michael, RIchard and Ray

03 September 2016

Great trip to St. Johns. As a returning guest it was nice to be recognised by Yasser and a number of the crew. Nineteen dives - a manta and oceanic white tips-what more can you ask for.A thank you to room-mate Paul.Looking forward to 2017. Bob Bob Mason

31 August 2016

Hard to fault boat, clean and comfortable, plenty of room for everyone. Excellent food, good choices. Mike and Karen

31 August 2016

The boat exceeded my expectations, everything was always clean and the beds in the cabins were really comfortable. Food was delicious, there was plenty to choose from so there was always something that we liked. David and Scott

31 August 2016

I think these holidays are always a joy made by the guides and staff and I have to say the two guides Gooma and Yasser were superb and very knowledgable and helpful aswell as always being around and part of the guests. The crew were superb and certainly seemed a team from top to bottom. I have spent many years running top level hotels and it is a pleasure to see such a great crew who made our stay so much good fun and relaxing. John and Debra

31 August 2016

The best dive guides and crew in the Red Sea, and we have been on many other liveaboards here. Fantastic guides who gave superb briefings and led dives well, plus they were willing to let you do your own dive, conditions and experience permitting. Always felt safe. As for the crew, they are the most helpful and happy crew we have dived with. Thank you!- Peter and Marion

30 August 2016

Just wanted to let you know that both David and Scott had an amazing time in Egypt; The crew were amazing and very helpful. Thank you very much for all your help and advice. Lisa Oliver

Hi Georgie, Just wanted to email and say how amazing our trip was! Just got back this morning but it really was the perfect trip! Great boat, brilliant crew, amazing group of people and brilliant diving. The trip was flawless and we will definitely be in touch when we want to go another diving trip. A massive thank you! Ali :-) Ali

01 August 2016

Really great dive guides, thorough briefing prior to each dive, always helpful. Theest of the crew could not have been more helpful in everyway helping in and out of the ribs, looking after us whilst getting our dive gear on. Lovely drinks after each dive and lots of biscuits and tea and coffee on tap.Amazing to be able to provide a feast at each meal time in such a small galley area... They should be on MASTER CHEF Derek and Angie

01 August 2016

The boat itself was really nice. The room was just right and what we expected. Its also very clean. The dive deck was brilliant because it has lots of space and an area to place our camera Esther and Anthony

01 August 2016

Best dive at Daedalus Reef. After jumping in we saw 4 hammerheadsstraightaway, which circled us for some time. A manta was also seen near the surface. Then the whole family of hammerheads showed up (around 14) and a manta swam past in the deep. Group stayed well together and all were monitored closely by the guides. To top it all off, another manta showed up at the safety stop! All in all a fantastic dive and one to be remembered Rick and Sam

19 July 2016

Hurricane was again very good. This is my 3rd time on this boat and every trip has been enjoyable Ian

19 July 2016

All the dive guides were brilliant, and showed us more than we would have seen without them. The crew were really helpful with kit and made kitting up effortless. A charming and mischevious bunch Joanna and William

19 July 2016

Guides are great. Loved diving with them for all my guided dives and then the briefings were perfect and very informative for when I started going on unguided dives. The crew are fantastic, so helpful, fun and just really great to be around. Thank you so much to them all Flora

19 July 2016

Thought the boat was fantastic. Well organised, spacious, extremely clean. Lots of lovely little touches, smily faces in the eggs in the morning, lovely snacks etc. The itinerary was excellent, great mix of swim throughs / wreck / deep diving for sharks / coral dives. Becky

11 July 2016

Just thought I would drop a short note to say thank you for arranging our southern red sea trip to St. Johns on MV Hurricane. Myself and Diane had a fab time with Matt, Kareem, Annette and a wonderful crew. Shaun cooper

01 June 2016

The crew and guides were excellent and helpful. Food was delicious and wondered how they manage to make such good food in that small kitchen. Lesley and Richard

01 June 2016
