MV Seawolf Dominator dive boat review
The Red Sea is a well-known diving destination to most Europeans and the quality of it’s diving is renowned globally. MV SeaWolf Dominator is comfortable and salubrious way to tour the Red Sea region; offering tours from the Northern Wrecks to the Southern marine parks and walls.
The Red Sea is home to a broad spectrum of marine life and diving. To the North near the Sinai Peninsula there are world famous wrecks, such as the SS Thistlegorm. Teeming with life and always a treat for history buffs getting to see the wreck complete with locomotives and motorcycles. There are also the wonderful clear blue waters in the Straits of Tiran.
To the south closer to Marsa Alam are the stunning islands and reefs such as Elphinstone where, on lucky days, you may have a hammerhead encounter.
SeaWolf Dominator was originally built for purpose in 2007 and then underwent a thorough re-fit during 2015. At 36m long and 8.5m in beam she’s a large and imposing vessel. Fast and comfortable, with two 750hp Daewoo motors powering you smoothly from wreck to reef at rapid 12 knots.

From the galley the onboard chef will serve a combination of western and local cuisine three times a day to keep you nourished and ready for the next dive! Beers are available in the evenings or for non-divers and snack are available throughout the day.
