Sail on Mistral for your next Red Sea liveaboard for a week to remember. Mistral is the very latest liveaboard in a long line of award winning vessels from Tornado Marine Fleet and her quality is evident from bow to stern. Attention to detail here is key and Mistral has been lovingly laid out to optimise space on board with super speedy engines to make sailing supremely comfortable. She boasts a host of extra facilities to make your week all the more enjoyable so jump aboard today!

Mistral has four double cabins located on the upper deck and eight twin cabins on the lower deck. Each generously sized cabin has a modern en-suite bathroom, individual controlled A/C and safety deposit. The upper cabins have one large double bed and the lower cabins have a large double lower bunk with an additional single upper bunk bed. All cabins have ample storage space and vanity unit. If you have a cabin preference just remember to ask at the time of booking.

The luxurious feel extends to the communal areas. The saloon is decked out with a plasma screen - ideal from comprehensive briefings. There are no less than 2 sun decks. The first sun deck is covered with a bar area and jacuzzi. The upper sun deck is vast and has plenty of space for everyone to lounge out. Photographers will love the dedicated camera room on the dive deck with rinse tanks and air gun. And technical divers will benefit from high pressure gas blending (including trimix). Ntirox is available for fills up to 36%. The extravagantly fast 1150Hp engines allow Mistral to get to the next dive site quickly and with 2 powerful RIBS, you will be the envy of others as you whisk past. The steel hull complements her speed and Mistral is incredibly stable in the water (ideal if you have not found you sea legs!). All in, Mistral is a welcome addition to the superb fleet of Red Sea liveaboards Scuba Travel offer and with such excellence, why book anything else!

Well informed and helpful. Being very familiar with all the dive sites they were very good at pointing out the most interesting things and clearly identified any potential hazards on each dive. Adrian Byrne

Great. Comfortable, very stable, well laid out. Steve Riddell

The best crew we have experienced on Red Sea liveaboards for helpfulness, efficiency and safety, catering for Maria’s extra needs during water entry/exit. The guides were extremely experienced, giving excellent briefs on dive sites, entry/exit on wrecks and safety. All the staff always helpful with a smile, nothing too much trouble. Steve & Maria

30 June 2014

Very stable, safe and comfortable boat. Good facilities with most things you want. A better internet would be a bonus. John & Margaret

30 June 2014

An excellent boat with good facilities and a good routine. A very good choice for my first liveaboard. Alex

20 June 2014

Just finished Wrecks & Reefs on Mistral. Overall an excellent week. Guides Adel & Spencer very good. Spencer excellent as a guide and Adel gave best briefings we have ever had. Food got better as week went on, Itinerary very good except Emperor Fraser wreck. Please remove it. All it is is a dump - rubbish everywhere and reef around it is not good. Crew excellent and always on hand to help. Nothing too much trouble for them. Kim Price

I just wanted to send you a through a lovely review from my FANTASTIC Totally Wrecked week aboard Mistral. And if you could guarantee me a whale shark every single time I travel with you, that would be awesome. Every single member of crew made us feel welcome, relaxed and superbly well looked after. The guides, Adel and Spencer, are fantastic and I felt in safe hands learning the Deep Diving course with Spencer. And a massive thank you to Captain Ammar for not only spotting the whale shark mid crossing but for stopping and letting us have a snorkel with him. Jane Carnell

I am a vegetarian, and on previous trips, I have had to make do with a selection of veg/rice/side dishes from the buffet. However, for every meal, the chef prepared me a special dish, and these were varied and delicious. Greg Roach

27 May 2014

The guides are clearly very experienced. They are both also very helpful, fun, organised and competent. They are a pleasure to dive with and I couldn't fault them at all. Many thanks to both of them for making this a great trip! Chris Joy

27 May 2014

With this type of holiday the ambience is crucial to one's enjoyment and without a professional and affable crew it can easily become a tedious experience. But Manon and Yasser we excellent and well informed guides. They were silly when it was appropriate and serious when safety was to be a concern. They were easy to talk to and fun to eat with. Certainly a trip I would recommend to a friend. Ivan Markovic

27 May 2014

Upgraded to Mistral from Cyclone, pleased about that as its a steel hull giving much more comfortable crossings. Boat kept in good order, clean and easy to use kit setup area with plenty of space. John Titmus

27 May 2014

The boat is more spacious than first imagined as despite a number of dives and trips this is my first liveaboard trip. The cabins are quite nice and deck areas well laid out with enough sun and shade areas for all. Amelia Welker

22 May 2014

The food was fantastic and as a vegetarian I found I was not lacking for options. The chef even prepared special meals for me which was lovely. The variety as brilliant lots of different vegetables every day and rice, chips, potatoes. The food really was of an excellent quality. Fiona

22 May 2014

All the crew were exceptional in their jobs very informative dive briefings nothing was to much trouble a very joyful and happy atmosphere dive guide Manon a very nice lady maybe needs a little more confidence. Adel one of the best dive guides I've come across , when we come back we will be looking out for his boat when booking Kerry & Steve

22 May 2014

Great guides and awesome knowledge. The dive briefings, where brought alive and much better than the usual white board drawings that are provided on other boats. It's always interesting to know the history of the area that you're diving. Nick B

21 May 2014

Hi Kate, just like to say a big thanks to you and everybody on the Mistral liveaboard for given my gang a holiday they wont forget everything was top notch, the boat the crew, guide guides and the diving, it couldn't have worked out any better, so the crew were asking when is the next trip? Paul Gillen

08 May 2014

Like to thank the chef and his team for putting on some fantastic food over the last week. Enjoyed every mouthful and what a treat to eat on the top deck on the last evening! Thank you! Favourites were the amazing side salads with every meal, fried fish, omelettes to order for breakfast and an array of yummy mains! Bill & Rach

08 May 2014

Excellent crew, couldn't be more helpful. Briefings were very informative. Good relaxed, but well organised guides. Cathy

08 May 2014

having now done a good number of these trips, Mistral has to rate as one of the best. Very clean and well kept and really couldn’t ask for more. James & Ed

24 February 2014

The guides and crew were absolutely fantastic at all times. Everyone was very approachable and friendly. It was really nice how certain members of staff took the time to get to know the guests and join in activities, such as jumping off the top sun deck into the sea. The guides in particular did a spectacular job of planning, briefing and leading the dives; ensuring all divers felt safe and comfortable at all times. Lucy

24 February 2014

The boat was very luxurious, with a very well varnished indoor regions providing comfy seats and dining areas. The cabins were a good size with enough storage space for all personal belongings. The top deck or sun deck was brilliant for sunbathing, very spacious with seats for chilling out. Lastly, the scuba equipment area was very good, with enough space for everyone to have their own bay yet still provide a strong sense of community. Jatin

24 February 2014

A lovely selection with a great variety of wrecks, reefs and plant/fish life- our students loved the whole experience and the guides really helped to make them feel secure Hannah

The food was excellent. Having seen the tiny galley it is amazing the quality of the meals and the variety of foods produced. Breakfasts were to order, and dinner always a three course meal. Andrew & Heidi

18 February 2014

Reda and Adel are very talented divers and guides, a pleasure to dive with and learn from both of them. The rest of the crew have provided and exceptional level of service at all times, particular thanks to Hendy and Khalid for the patient attempts to teaching me Arabic! Bryn

This was my first time on a boat of the Tornado fleet. I was very happy with the boat, the cabin, the helpfulness and friendliness of the crew! BEST BRIEFINGS I HAVE EVER HAD!!!! Compliments to Reda and Adel! Veronika

Made to feel welcome onboard and staff go out of their way to make your stay comfortable and stress free. Everyone always friendly and willing to help. Food brilliant! Darren

10 February 2014

Chef has done an excellent job – very willing to help with dietary needs and late arrivals. Salads are particularly good, and we had fish and chips – in Egypt – how about that! Peter
