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!

I had such an incredible time. Amazing holiday, well organised and for all you get a very fair price. I will absolutely 100% book with you again when I have the money. Also a HUGE thanks to all the boat crew especially Reda, in over 900 dives across the world I have never had such an amazing, friendly, talented guide. Simply the best holiday and operators ever Lucy Handel

This is my first luxury liveaboard, recommended by my club mate, Mike and it did not disappoint. He said the food was great and it was. Fi Mathers

17 September 2014

This is the first liveaboard I have been on the lads are very helpful and nothing is to much trouble. The briefs are very good with relevant information well led too. Steven Johnston

17 September 2014

As this is my first experience on a liveaboard I cannot compare the crew with another but I think you would struggle to find a nicer set of lads, so helpful and so knowledgeable. They just want you to have the best time and I can safely say I have. Eddie Nilsson

17 September 2014

Great boat, VERY clean, possibly the cleanest one we've been on to date (this is trip 4 for us). It was great that the guides recognised us as a couple and offered us a double rather than twin room - it made the trip that much more special. Paul & Cath

17 September 2014

Mistral is a beautiful boat and very spacious, from the cabins to the dining area and everywhere else permitted to the guests. Kim Nichol

17 September 2014

We stayed on Mistral last year and came back this year and the boat is still looking good and well maintained. A credit to the Tornado Fleet. Lee Stephenson

02 September 2014

All the food has been very good, there has been plenty of it - - the provision for vegetarians was great. 10/10 Stewart & Harry

02 September 2014

Guides and crew were amazing. Organised, competent, and always at hand to ensure your stay/diving is at the best that can be offered Terry Chandler

02 September 2014

Very friendly, relaxed crew. Happy to have a laugh with you and were also very knowledgeable about everything in the area. Love the fact that you could just sit there and the crew you pretty much kit you up for diving! Drinks afterward a good idea too. All in all I felt very well looked after! Josie Muncaster

02 September 2014

Was lucky enough to have a cabin by myself, very spacious and very well maintained. The saloon area was very comfortable, and there is a lot of space to relax in the shade or sunbathe. Adam

02 September 2014

Very good boat, been on quite a few livaboards and this one ranks at the top Paul Adlington

21 August 2014

Fantastic food has been on offer all week, with a great variety available at each meal. The meals and the snacks that have been provided throughout the week have been delicious and our thanks go to all of the catering staff aboard. Alex & Taryn

21 August 2014

Reda and Sharif did an excellent job maintaining order, explaining the boat rules, doing the briefing before each dive, leading the divers through their dives and making sure all were safe, and attending to all diver's questions. I could not have asked for more professional and friendly diving guides. Mihanad & Zeid

21 August 2014

Reda and Sherif are fantastic guides. The briefs are packed full of really useful information to make all the dives easy and pleasurable for all levels of diver - and even sometimes include an alternative plan just in case. Reda's knowledge especially is exceptional. Safety is also second to none, with everyone looked after right from the new diver to the most experienced. Rachel

Mistral is the first liveaboard I have been on and I'm very impressed! The boat was kept extremely clean, very comfortable and great facilities. The light blew in our cabin and was changed immediately - good service. Drew

21 August 2014

Never been on a liveaboard before but Mistral blew my expectations out the water! Really comfortable cabin which I can't fault. Very spacious around the boat and completely spotless. Crew are VERY attentive, especially on the dive deck before and after dives. Very friendly and great to laugh and have a banter with! Genuinely can't fault the boat at all. Can't think of anything more I'd ask for. Ross

21 August 2014

Mistral is a beautiful boat, definitely the best looking of any of the boats we were moored alongside. The crew keep it spotless and everything appears to run smoothly, cabins have plenty of space, and the dive deck is well laid out. Even with a full boat, there is plenty of space for everyone. Kaye

Just back from our trip on the Mistral and I must say we had an absolutely amazing week. Brilliant crew and guides and a fab bunch of guests. Not to forget the excellent diving!!! So much so that we're looking at potentially booking another trip for next year. Just looking at a trip on the Whirlwind. Do you happen to know what the differences are to the Mistral? Also wouldn't mind to have Ahmed Halmosh again as a guide, but I guess that's planned much closer to the dates. Only point that was missing is that I don't think I was made aware that we could have booked Nitrox in advance. I'm guessing that would have been slightly cheaper. Thanks again for your help, Daniela Dani

12 August 2014

Fantastic food, and plenty of variety. Always well presented and plenty. Pete & Jade

12 August 2014

Ahmedís knowledge and experience of the area is very extensive and this clearly shows! Crew- They cannot do enough for every single guest, their knowledge, attitude and work ethic is spot on. They are fun, friendly and clearly happy to be here. Lindsey & Laura

12 August 2014

Guides and crew couldnít be any more helpful, can the crew come home with us to help set up when diving? Guides are excellent, would miss a lot on a dive without them! Stuart & Kevin

12 August 2014

My first live-aboard and so I was simply hoping for a decent standard. My expectations were exceeded! Twin cabins are rather on a small side but loads of space in the saloon and mid and top deck. Very clean, well looked after and maintained. Spacious and quite cosy at the same time. Anna & Manfredas

12 August 2014

Excellent boat, plenty of space for everyone. In case of any issues the crew will sort it. Dani & Colin

08 August 2014

As always crew and guides excellent, like old friends! Lana & Angie

08 August 2014

Turtles, extraordinary marine life around the barge, giant moray swimming free, rays of various types. The instructors were able to qualify Amy for advanced and nitrox during the week, thanks! Richard & Amy

09 July 2014

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

09 July 2014

Great fun, guides were good at pointing out areas of interest on the wrecks or marine life. Crew were very helpful and good fun. Sarah & Heidi

09 July 2014

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

30 June 2014

The best crew we have experienced on Red Sea liveaboards for helpfulness, efficiency and safety, catering for Mariaís 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
