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.

I never cease to be amazed at what the chefs are able to do in such limited space, and accommodate every possible need. The quality and quantity of the food every day, and every meal was second to none. These guys are marvellous jaqui

First time diving in Egypt and on a live-a-board, both excellent and much better and more comfortable than expected; has set a very high standard to judge future trips against. Will definitely be coming again! Ian

An excellent boat with everything a diver could ask for. Our cabin was surprisingly spacious and the beds were very comfy. Really canít think of any way to improve this boat and would be delighted to travel on Hurricane again. Geoff

Great! Guides were excellent and clearly know the area well. Briefings and instruction on how to behave around sharks also very good. Crew were all nice, friendly and accommodating. Becky

01 December 2015

The boat was well prepared for the photographer needs. The rooms were larger than the other liveaboards I am used to. It can also handle the rougher weather better than the other boats Michal

I travelled on 20th August on the Hurricane, on the St John cruise. I was particularly impressed with Duxy who gave of his time and expertise with enthusiasm and friendliness. He was incredible knowledgeable and answered all the questions that I though at him. It was a pleasure to dive with him and I shall look forward to make on of his live aboard workshop at some stage in the future. Nathalie Hart

13 July 2015

Litteraly nothing too much, as always crew went over and above any expectations we could have. The commitment to guest satisfaction is very evident from the saloon and dive deck crew Darren Flood & Chris Oatkins

06 July 2015

Recently learned to dive and this was my first real experience of the beauty that lies beneath the waves. Did not know what to expect, however the dives sites were great and everything was well organised, the crew had it all down to a perfect routine, with great food . Yasser and Mussa were very knowledgeable which made it all the easier. Great holiday, will definitely be back again. Riccardo

24 June 2015

The two weeks on board Hurricane were great. Previously my wife has had problems as she is vegetarian but the chef made her some excellent meals. All dives were well briefed and the dive guides were brilliant.The crew were the best I have ever dived with, attentive without being overbearing and always interested in what I had seen on the dives. Richard

19 June 2015

I had a fantastic diving time and because of this holiday I have fulfilled one of my bucket lists , and that was to swim with a full school of sharks , this has been the best liverboard I have been on in a long time seen so much thanks to all of you from my heart Anthony Kenny
