Cheap Red Sea liveaboards don’t have to be lacking in quality compared to their more pricy brethren. In fact; it tends to be only with smaller vessels such as these that you can experience a red sea diving safari as part of a small group.

Whilst a few of these cheaper red sea liveaboards are limited to only touring Egypts’ north red sea (still an incredible experience in itself and the most beginner friendly one), most budget red sea liveaboards offer diving itineraries just as varied as mid range and luxury vessels, being able to take you to Egypt’s north, central and deep south red sea…provided you have the diving experience!

With a few, it’s even possible to get your dive training onboard, making them exceptionally suitable for non-divers and beginners who wish to learn how to scuba dive! Below, we take a look at the hands down best cheap red sea liveaboards available this year:

  • Offering personalised diving trips around the north Red Sea, Amelie’s routes are ideal for beginners as guests only need their open water cert and no logged dives to dive!
  • Sleek; spacious and modern, Seawolf Soul boasts stylish and spacious onboard amenities and social areas. She runs a varied range of dive trips that cover the best of Egypt’s North, Central or South Red Sea.
  • Offering great trips to both Egypt’s north and south red sea, Firebird has 3 incredible sundecks, ensuite cabins, a talented chef and free WiFi. She takes just 16 guests, making her a good smaller groups option. 
  • The all time cheapest Red Sea liveaboard, Freedom III runs fantastic dive trips around Egypts’ north red sea. Despite her affordability she offers great onboard amenities including a TV & DVD player in every cabin. 
  • Taking just 11 guests, Freedom VIII is a great option for those wishing to travel in small groups around Egypt’s North Red Sea. She runs 3 – 5 day trips, making her ideal for short trips.
