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.

Furthermore, in term of scuba diving facilities and equipment, the C-Echo I has just about everything it takes!

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!
