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!

Really, really excellent – crew all very professional and friendly, and couldn’t do enough for us. Appreciated little touches like drinks brought to us after each dives, holding back food when one of us missed breakfast and all the help getting into our gear. The guides were also great and also very friendly. They gave very good briefings and instructions and happy to help with any problems. James & Kate

19 June 2015

Mistral is a fantastic boat, even better than in photos, I was really happy surprised at how lush it is! Cabins were larger than I expected and it was great to have a decent sized en suite too. All of the boat is in fab condition, amazing quality, really happy with my stay. Daisy

Really nice boat. Well maintained with nice cabins. Top Quality. Andrew Read

19 June 2015

The whole crew worked tirelessly to give us a memorable experience. Food and hospitality exceeded all expectations. The guides were the best that I have come across anywhere in the world, always there to encourage, guide and ensure that we were not only safe but also able to see all the best parts of each dive. SO Professional! Dive crew always there to help with recalcitrant wetsuits, fins and all the details to make sure that we had the best time. Many heartfelt thanks for making my first liveaboard trip one to remember. Phil

Very good crew, friendly and efficient, good company and chatted with guests. Andrew Willet

19 June 2015

Really clean and comfortable boat – and really stable too! At times I even forgot we were on a boat – that’s how stable it was! Fran

19 June 2015

Super boat. Good cabins, clean and comfortable. Roomy dive deck with easy access to ladders and ribs. Michelle Moroney & Chris Lunt

My holiday with ScubaTravel was ace! Paul Sargeant

03 June 2015

Spectacular... very accommodating to a special diet and excellent food throughout.. Nothing was too much trouble. Tony & Jo

03 June 2015

Great briefings and very thorough. We have done mainly unguided dived this year as Dave has dived the wrecks many times, but the guides are excellent. The crew make the diving so easy and are very friendly Dave & Viv

03 June 2015

The guides were excellent! No matter what questions you had they could help or would at least try their best. They would sit with us at meal times and interact with the guests which made the whole trip feel more personal and intimate! Keep up the good work. Aaron Hall

03 June 2015

This is my 3rd trip on Mistral and Dave's 5th. Very comfortable. We had problems with the air con in our room which was quickly fixed. Great dive deck and the staff make the diving so easy. Tracey & Peter

03 June 2015

This is our first Red Sea Liveaboard. We have been put off in the past because of experiences with rough seas on day boats. However have been extremely impressed by stability and have had no issues with sea sickness. Alun & Mel Jones

28 May 2015

Crew were outstanding – always ready to help and made kitting-up/down much more relaxing. Great service. Guides were very good and briefings detailed Alan

28 May 2015

Excellent boat, very relaxed and comfortable. Steve & Maria

19 May 2015

Excellent crew on the boat. Everyone was extremely helpful and very attentive. The guides were excellent; Reda's diving briefs were very detailed and helpful. I got help at each dive to get my kit on and off. Really top quality. Teresa Sabato Ceraldi

19 May 2015

8th TORNADO liveaboard and never fails to disappoint, see you again on Totally Wrecked next year. Thanks. Adrian

19 May 2015

My first liveaboard and it did not disappoint. The pictures online, do not do this boat justice, the cabins are very spacious, and the sun deck is beautiful, plenty of space for everybody. The crew are constantly cleaning, so the whole boat is spotless, will definitely be back! Victoria Kerr

19 May 2015

The boat is beautiful from top to bottom. Everything is kept spotless by the hard working crew. There are lots of different spaces to chill out, with shade and without. The boat is fast and reliable, when it moves you can hardly tell! The dining area is really lovely with all its shinny wood. We really enjoyed all our time here! Eleanor & Mary

19 February 2015

Fantastic trip yet again on Mistral, 1st time on this boat and what a lovely boat with a large kitting up area with room to get out of the wind, which we had quite a lot of and excellent camera area. The cabins are large with double beds with the option of a bunk bed. Food and crew excellent as always. Dive guides Adel & Reda outstanding. The diving amazing, grey reef sharks on Jackson Reef and 4 dives on the mighty Thistlegorm all to ourselves. Can't wait to go back :-) Thanks you very much Scuba Travel Deb Hickman

As with all TMF crews, everybody works really hard, both "front of house" and behind the scenes to ensure that the guests' every need is catered for, it would be unfair to single any individual out, but the engineers worked hard to ensure that the open deck policy for the Barge works. Duxy's infinite patience (especially with Kirstie) means that he's wormed his way back into her “Circle of Trust” Paul & Kirstie

06 February 2015

The crew are the highlight ... no doubt ... I looked forward to seeing them every morning ... always a smile and a kind greeting... Little Bkkar is a star .. Abdallah a class act ... Osama the Chef a true gourmet and to see my friend Adel again was special.... Skipper is an expert ... nothing else needed to say except Khalid .. a gentleman and great companion.... If Carlsberg made crews....... Ally

06 February 2015

My first time on the boat couldn't have been better. Enough room and everything works, which is not the case with every liveaboard. The charging stations are excellent. Chris

06 February 2015

his was my first live aboard and I was a little wary as I can get quite sea sick so comfort and cleanliness were at the top of my priorities and this boat was excellent. The set up for photographers was spot on – rinse tanks, work station and video facilities for reviewing pictures etc I couldn't have asked for more. Dawn Thomas

02 February 2015

Crew were great. Reda’s briefings were excellent; clear and simple plans with interesting visual guides to illustrate. He was also good at summarising the dive into key points at the end. I thought the guides were well organised and attentive underwater and the zodiac men were brilliant, you never had to wait long for a pick up. Danny Meakin

02 February 2015

I don’t think I have ever had such informative and thorough dive briefings as the ones we received from Reda this week – absolutely fantastic and great enthusiasm! The dive guides were all super friendly and fun to dive with. Reinard Volschenk

02 February 2015

Clean and comfortable and very classy looking, I loved the boat. Hilary Ryan

02 February 2015

A very stylish and classy boat. The Mistral has a more ‘refitted’ look than Whirlwind and Hurricane and I liked the different deck layout. Gorgeous cabins and more space! Very clean and much care and attention is clearly given to her upkeep. Penelope Granycome

05 January 2015

The crew were great! Very helpful and attentive. Each meal time the saloon boys ensured everyone was happy and the food was good. Adel was as funny as ever! Ensured we found the hidden galley on Thistlegorm..... Yasser was very thorough and thoughtful. Briefings were clear and detailed. Both guides were good company and very supportive of all guests. Guided parties spoke very highly of both guides. Would recommend both to others. Every member of the crew worked with pride and to a high standard. Thank you to all . Lisa and Andy
