MV Snefro Love dive boat review
King Snefro Fleet are one of the longest established liveaboard diving tour operators on the Sinai Peninsula. Having been operating from their base in Sharm El Sheikh since 1986, they have a wealth of local knowledge and expertise in Red Sea diving. MV Snefro Love is one of the luxurious vessels in King Snefro Fleet, predominantly operating in the Northern Red Sea.
The Sinai Peninsula and northern Red Sea offers wrecks, reefs, wall dives and lots of colourful aquatic life and great visibility. On dives there’s the chance to encounter beautiful corals, colourful shoals of snapper, barracuda, blue-spotted rays, napoleon wrasse, giant moray eels and octopus. Many experts say that there are over 2000 species of fish and coral making this area of the Red Sea their home.
MV Snefro Love was originally built in Rashid in 2010 specifically for divers. Renovated again in 2014 she is in tip-top condition and ready to welcome you on your adventure. At 37m long and 9m in beam she is comparable in size to competitors such as MV Blue Melody.
Snefro Love has 2 x 460hp engines that help the boat glide through the water on the journey between dive sites. In addition, for safety and pick-ups/drops there are 2 x diving tenders each equipped with 25hp outboards. Snefro Love has a full compliment of emergency safety equipment including radio, radar, GPS, life-rafts (2 x 25 person), first-aid and EPIRB Distress System in the event of unforeseen issues.

The dining area is very spacious for the lucky guests and here the meals served by the chef are a mouth-watering mixture of international and western dishes in buffet style. And, if advised in advance, the chef is able to cater to any special dietary requirements you may have. As usual, tea, coffee and snacks are on offer throughout the day.
