Top Red Sea tech diving liveaboards

If you are looking for the best technical diving liveaboard in the Red Sea, I’ve selected a number of top dive boats that all cater for technical divers. Within this review list, I include whether the liveaboard supports rebreathers or sidemount diving.

Red Sea Technical diving liveaboards including a table of 35 Red Sea liveaboards offering support to technical divers. The support offered by most of these Red Seas liveaboards is either rebreather support or they offer sidemount diving, or both.

The best way to dive the Red Sea as a tech diver, and especially the best and more remote locations in the Red Sea, is by a scuba diving liveaboard. You can check the latest and best deals on Red Sea liveaboards using the following window:

If you are reading this article about technical diving liveaboard Red Sea, then you probably already know what technical diving is all about.

Having said that, let me run through what I think makes a good technical diving liveaboard.

  • Sidemount divingSidemount diving is when your scuba diving air tanks are mounted alongside the diver. They are usually below the shoulders and along the hips, instead of on your back. This configuration is better for diving in confined spaces like technical wreck diving penetrations.
  • Rebreather support – Many technical scuba divers use rebreathers (also known as closed circuit scuba equipment)to dive, as compared to using conventional scuba apparatus or open circuit scuba equipment.

Not all the Red Sea liveaboards listed in the table below have sidemount diving and not all support rebreathers. However, I’ve included the ones that don’t offer this support in the list as they do support technical divers in general.

Other aspects to consider when choosing your Red Sea technical diving liveaboard

In addition to having the above two important support features, the liveaboard should be highly rated (the liveaboards below are rated by customers out of 10).

You may also choose a liveaboard based on the number of divers it takes. The less divers, the more intimate the diving and therefore the less-crowded the dive sites are.

Obviously, another important choice consideration is the cost of the liveaboard. Depending on whether you’re on a budget or if you want to splash the cash.
