Are short liveaboard dive trips to the Red Sea of 3, 4 or 5 days possible? Whilst a 3 day liveaboard Red Sea trip isn't available, you can book short 4 day liveaboard Red Sea and 5 day liveaboard Red Sea trips, if you are able to extend your liveaboard trip by one more day.


Booking a 3 day liveaboard Red Sea

If you're looking to book a 3 day liveaboard Red Sea trip, I'm afraid you're out of luck. But if you are able to push your trip to either 4 days or 5 days, then this is possible.

I have reviewed four Red Sea liveaboard dive boats, which all have 4 day 3 night dive trips, but two also offer 5 day, 4 night dive trips too.

Review of Red Sea liveaboard Freedom III:

Great diving experience in the Red Sea! "Thistlegorm could be seen 100 times and you still wouldn’t get sick of it. It really is something special. Compliments to the chef who made such a variety of food for every meal. There was something for everyone. The briefings for the dives were detailed and even gave back stories to the wrecks and the reefs. The dive masters knew where to find different wildlife and took care of the group while giving those space that wanted it. The rooms were nice and the environment was social. The whole experience on this boat was a highlight." Recommended for: the diving, the food, the briefings.

Stacey N, United States - 10 out of 10, Exceptional and 5 stars.

Review of King Snefro 5:

Great crew, guide and food! "Spotting a black tipped shark on the first dive. Following a guitar shark on the last dive. A brush of snorkeling with dolphins. Exploring Thistlegorm. Seeing a huge king barracuda. Ful and falafel for breakfast." Recommended for: Our eagle eyed guide, Essam, spotted a shark on the first dive! The food was delicious- must have gained a kilo or two in 3 days. Crew was friendly and our tanks were usually filled (not replaced) to over 200 PSI.
