The Northern Egyptian Red Sea

In Northern Egyptian waters, we are using Whirlwind, a brand new (May 2006) vessel that is part of the Tornado fleet. Spacious and comfortable, this 36m vessel has 10 en suite cabins with twin beds and air conditioning, a large saloon for relaxing in the cool, and both indoor and outdoor eating areas. Her large dive deck has benches with individual areas for each diver, with tank rack and gears storage. Both Nitrox and Trimix facilities are available for suitably qualified divers. Two 5.2m ribs with 55hp outboards ferry divers to sites swiftly and in comfort, or diving can be done off the back deck.

Between dives there is a vast sun deck with hot tub, loungers and shaded area for you to relax and enjoy the sites of the Northern Egyptian coastline. Delicious international cuisine is served from a modern and well-equipped galley, and snacks are always available for those who are feeling peckish between meals. For those who want to stay out of the heat, the saloon has a plasma screen, stereo and a well-stocked bar for after dive congeniality.

Whirlwind is based in Sharm El Sheikh - just a few hours sail south is legendary Ras Mohammed marine park and the fabled wrecks of Gubal and Shadwan Islands and Sha’ab Abu Nuhas. She offers a variety of weekly itineraries including special wreck trips that take in the aforementioned wreck areas, the Thistlegorm, Dunraven, Giannis D and other famous ships. Wreck and reef combination trips cover the Straits of Tiran, Ras Mohammed and its precipitous walls, Abu Nuhas and the Thistlegorm. The Brothers Wreck itineraries take in the wrecks of the northern areas, but with her ocean going stability and exceptional range and speed, Whirlwind can also take in the Brothers Islands in a weekly itinerary.
