Sharks Bay Umbi Diving Village has 5 of its own boats, the “Freedom” series, giving us the flexibility to offer tailor made safaris with a guarantee departure of only 6 guests. The fleet includes 3 air-conditioned boats that can be used for liveaboards. All the boats have oxygen, first aid and Emergency First Response trained staff.

We offer everything from “mini-safaris” of 2 days / 1 night to an unlimited number of days to be able to experience the whole of the northern Red Sea. Our mini safaris are designed for those who want to try life aboard one of our diving boats but do not want to commit to being aboard for more than a short break. A week on board will take you to such famous places as the Straits of Tiran, Ras Mohammed, the wrecks of the Thistlegorm and Dunraven or, further to the Straits of Gubal with its unique reef Abu Nuhas and four wrecks on one spot.

The cabins on our boats are simply but comfortably furnished. On all our trips we take a RIB for additional safety and also because this gives us the opportunity to dive on reefs where the larger boats cannot go. Safety is all important in Sharks Bay; all of our guides and skippers are experienced in first-aid and environmental protection and participate in regular further training programs. 

We require a minimum of 30 logged dives to join our safaris and you must have dived within the past year.

All of our safari prices include full board accommodation, soft drinks, water, tanks, weights and guide but exclude equipment hire and torch rental, Ras Mohammed entrance fees and chamber fees. Non-divers welcome.
