Seawolf Dominator - My Experience & Review

Diving Squad Rating:


In November 2022, I dived the South Red Sea with the Seawolf Dominator. 

Seawolf Dominator is part of the Seawolf Fleet; renowned for high customer service, they have 20+ years experience operating Red Sea liveaboard trips.

I can certainly attest to the high customer service; of all the liveaboards I’ve been on, I have never felt so pampered as I did on this one.

After every dive someone would immediately be there to help us out of our gear – and hand us a refreshing drink. 

After the third dive of the day and before dinner; we’d all be invited up to the outdoor lounge for mock-tails; this really made it easy to socialise with other guests.

The food itself was incredible; delicious and after we finished our dinner someone would magically appear next to us with a friendly smile, a wink – and dessert!

The yacht itself is really nice; cabins are very cozy with comfy beds, whilst the sundecks, indoor saloon and dining area are very modern and well furbished.

As for the actual diving itself – phenomenal! Check out the movie of my trip below – or scroll down further to find out more about Seawolf Dominator. 

Staff about to serve guests freshly prepared smoothies! Expect pampering like this on a daily basis!

As you can see from the movie; diving the Red Sea is a visually stunning experience with incredible visibility of up to 120 feet (40 meters) and amazingly healthy coral reef that literally stretches away for as far as the eye can see.

There’s a myriad of life; including all manner of reef fish, nudibranch, crustaceans and turtles plus big oceanic fish like trevally, giant barracuda and tuna. 

A highlight of the trip was meeting two Oceanic Whitetip Shark at Elphinstone; typical of their species, they were incredibly curious, swimming right up to each diver.

The dive guides showed me videos from the previous months trips in which other guests had also seen dolphins, hammerhead sharks, manta rays and thresher sharks. 

Seawolf Dominator also tours the North Red Sea which is famous for epic shipwrecks and easy, beginner friendly dives.
The dive guides were highly experienced; even though there were eight guests to each guide; they effortlessly kept tabs on every group member.

Everyone used the Nitrox which was freely available and the staff spoke English, German and Russian (and of course Egyptian-Arabic!).
Each day we were woken up at around 6am and had twenty minutes to grab a coffee and snack before the first dive briefing of the day.

Throughout the day there were three dives; each was followed by a delicious breakfast, lunch or dinner and then guests had a couple of hours to rest before the next dive.

After the third dive, everyone is invited to the main outdoor lounge; music is played and the staff bring you a fresh drink and light snacks. This made socialising so easy.

Guests have about an hour to enjoy this part of the day, which is also ample time to shower and change and then it’s time for a mouth-watering dinner and dessert. 

After this, many folks liked to enjoy a drink or two from the bar but for those who can hold off there’s usually a night-dive which you can go on without a guide!

There’s no official time you have to be asleep, but most people are tucked up in their cabins by 10pm, at which point it’s all very quiet; but staff are still available 24/7.

A large and beautiful vessel measuring 137 feet, the cabins of Seawolf Dominator feature a beautiful yet cosy wooden interior with very comfy beds and an ensuite bathroom.

Up top is a large sundeck connected to a partially shaded al fresco dining area.

However, during my trip;, most folks hung out on the second deck with its partially shaded lounge, panoramic views, comfy furniture and colourful beanbags. 

The indoor saloon is very spacious with a huge lounge; it’s also a great place to read and chill plus there is a huge Plasma TV, board games and books.

Moving through the lounge; you come into the spacious dining area; surrounded by stunning ocean views in all directions. I really can’t overstate how great the food was!

The dive deck itself was very spacious; with two showers and staff constantly around to help with gear maintenance and cleaning. They’re also more than happy to take photos.

Seawolf Dominator felt like a truly luxurious experience; however it’s only a mid-priced liveaboard!

Honestly, I have yet to be on another liveaboard that offers such great value for money.

Thanks to the awesome customer service, the delicious food, comfy cabins and amazing dive itinerary, this was the best liveaboard trip I’ve ever been on.

I want to say a huge thankyou to all of the awesome crew of Seawolf Dominator – and, in the words of Terminator – I’ll be back!

"All of the boat staff and dive guides were excellent - we couldn't have asked for better. we stayed in an upper deck room.  I thought it could have used a little updating.  We booked the brother islands tour, but i personally think 3 days at brothers is way too long especially since it was so crowded with other liveaboards (we counted 16 including us at big brother).  i would have like to see other dive sites rather than so many repeat ones. the food was good - there were several excellent meals such as the bbq and turkey dinner.  I would have liked to see a couple more healthier options from time to time. all in all, we enjoyed this trip. being Egypt is so reasonably priced, we surely got our money's worth on this adventure. thank you to all the staff for making this a memorable experience".
