Indeed, with a great value for money and plenty of space on-board, the baby of the Blue Planet Liveaboard Fleet won’t disappoint! The boat’s dive cruise itineraries options are various. Indeed, either a mini 3 nights safari and resort stay or a full length, 7 nights, diving cruise are available.

Vessel Layout

The Blue Planet is definitely an elegant and luxurious ship. Nothing compares to it in term of size, it’s one of the smallest liveaboard sailing the Red Sea. That being said, the fact that it’s small means less people so less crowded diving! In term of luxury and service, the Blue Planet 1 is comparable to other vessels in her fleet such as the Blue Seas or the Blue Pearl.

On-deck showers, camera charging stations and personal storage space are among the best features of the vessel. Easy and convenient, that’s how it sounds to dive the Red Sea with the Blue Planet!

2 liveaboard reviews for “MY Blue Planet 1

  1. Great review here! You sum up the essential quite fairly! I did North & Wrecks with friends in May and it’s been great. The service is exceptional, it was a much welcome stress free week. Personally I’m much into wrecks so I loved discovering the wrecks of the Red Sea. Our group was fun and we all got along well. The beds and comfy and there’s plenty to enjoy on-board. I might try their newer vessel for a change next time but otherwise I would not hesitate to head back with the Blue Planet 1! Justin

  2. Awesome dive trip
    We dived with Blue Planet 1, dive guide Ashraf, North and Tiran route, we had a fantastic time, every body from the staff is very friendly and trying to help you, safety is a priority, and Ashraf is very professional yet approachable, always with a smile, he gave great dive briefings, supported with maps and photos, precise info about conditions and suggested alternatives dive plans to accommodate different interest and levels of experience, he guided the majority of the dives for the divers that preferred been guided, fluent in English, German and Arabic, and vast knowledge of the local reefs and wrecks. The food was fantastic, Chef Omar not only cooked varied and delicious food but the presentation was amazing. It was a lot of fun and for us, diving with wild dolphins for first time (and 2nd and 3rd). Very comfortable and spacious boat. Captain Hamada, has a vast knowledge of the local reefs, always found protected reef to dive even in the windiest days. Highly recommended
