M/Y Sea Legend Will Replace Sunken Scuba Scene


In the wake of last month’s fire that destroyed and sank the Red Sea liveaboard Scuba Scene, dive tour operator Oyster Diving, the folks who manage the vessel, have announced they have found a suitable replacement.

Oyster Diving have taken on M/Y Sea Legend, a 42m/138ft-long steel vessel that sports 16 double cabins accommodating 32 people. All cabins have A/C and en-suite bathrooms (WC/shower).

The salon, which has a separate dining and lounge area with bar, offers A/C, DVD/TV/video and a music system.

Moreover, two high-powered rigid inflatable boats with ladders and equipment racks have been added, according to the announcement.

Elke Bojanowski aka “The Shark Lady” and owner of the Red Sea Shark Trust will continue with her “Red Sea Shark Weeks” and Ahmed Fadel will continue with his knowledge of the wrecks and reefs of the Red Sea (and dive maps), as well as his “Tec Weeks” and training.

If you were previously booked on Scuba Scene, your reservation have been transferred to Sea Legend on the same dates.

“The Scuba Scene Team is confident that they can maintain the same high standards and deliver holidays that will be as good, if not better than on Scuba Scene.”
