Okeanos Xplorer’s On-board Facilities

The dive boat was built in a way that maximizes the space of the communal areas. Indeed, you will find lots of space to hang out, both inside and outside. First, the main deck is home to a large restaurant-like dining room and a salon with full entertainment unit. Of course, air-conditioning is available throughout the dive boat’s interiors.

Furthermore, as you get on the upper deck, you will notice the over sized outdoor lounge. In a shaded, yet open air area, the lounge features tables and cozy couches. Plus, the very top deck is a entire area for sun loungers and star gazers. The Red Sea‘s ever changing view will sure look good from up there.

Vessel Layout

The Okeanos Xplorer sure has all the latest navigation and safety technologies on-board. The Xplorer fleet has been running on the Red Sea for a while and also owns the Vita Xplorer.
