C-Echo 1 dive boat review
The 31 meters long liveaboard C-Echo 1 offers scuba diving cruises on the Red Sea. The vessel was fully renovated in 2013 and takes divers to the best of the Red Sea, with a large selection of itineraries.
Boat Cabins & Layout
The C-Echo I can cater to a maximum of 24 guests in a very flexible cabin layout. Indeed, the lower deck displays 6 twin-bed cabins and 2 suites featuring king-size beds. Plus, the upper deck has a 4 additional twin cabins! Every cabin on-board has air-conditioning, a mini-bar, entertainment system as well as a complete en-suite bathroom.
C-Echo 1’s On-board Facilities
The dive vessel was thoroughly renovated and now presents a modern airy and attractive display. First, there’s air-conditioning throughout the inside of the C-Echo I. Secondly, the spacious indoor communal area covers most of the main deck and includes the dining room and salon. Lastly, the indoor salon features comfortable couches, a television and multimedia system.
Now, as you step outside, you’ll surely be impressed over the amount of open-air space available. Indeed, the C-Echo 1 features, not one, but two sundecks! The lower sundeck is mostly shaded while the very top deck is mostly soaking in the sun rays, but still has a big shaded area. Anyways, both decks are perfect to stretch out, do some yoga, read a book, and simply enjoy the ever changing landscape of the Red Sea.
Scuba Diving on the C-Echo I
The C-Echo 1 is part of the Arafaline Safari Fleet which has been around the Red Sea since 2003. Indeed, this vessel as a sistership, the C-Echo II, which is bigger and takes only 2 more passengers on-board (so 26 total). Also, both vessels can cruise the many itineraries offered by Arafaline which are mostly, North, South, Brother’s, St-John and Deep South.
Furthermore, in term of scuba diving facilities and equipment, the C-Echo I has just about everything it takes! Indeed, with a spacious, well-organized and neat dive station at the aft, it’s simple to get the dive operation started! The dive platform and the 2 dive tenders are making the whole process a lot easier. Plus, the professional and skilled team of dive instructors and guides are always around to help! Finally, you’ll dive 3 times per day on most days and… Nitrox is available!
