The Award-winning wooden-hulled M/Y Whirlwind was built in Rasheed close to Alexandria. In May 2006 she sailed her maiden voyage journeying to Sharm el-Sheikh. Soon after that, she took her place amongst the elite of the liveaboard vessels in the Red Sea.
At a generous 36m with an 8m beam Whirlwind easily accommodates 20 guests. This makes her very popular with our photography community due to her spacious decks.
The dive deck designed by divers, for divers. As a result, it is well thought, stress-free and easy set up for rebreathers, twinsets and photographers. Many of our specialist diving itinerary leaders ask for Whirlwind year after year. Whirlwind runs photography workshops, escorted wreck weeks, dedicated freediving trips and our custom Red Sea Relaxed itineraries throughout the year. Coupled with her excellent facilities and highly attentive and experienced crew Whirlwind offers affordable diving luxury throughout the dive season.
Whirlwind sails the Northern Red Sea. Her itineraries combine some of the worlds most famous wreck dives with breathtaking reef. This allows divers to experience the incredible diversity the Red Sea is renowned for.
