M/Y Scuba Scene was launched in April 2023 and is the ultimate luxury steel-hulled liveaboard located in the Red Sea. She is 48m long, fitted to rigorous safety standards, and makes a great home away from home to enjoy some of the world’s most spectacular dive sites.

Scuba Scene is spacious, comfortable, and beautifully laid out, with a maximum capacity for 28 diving guests. She comes with two large Zodiacs both fitted with large outboard engines, tank racks and dive ladders – no more being hauled into a rib and face-planting on the dive gear. This makes it quicker and more comfortable to reach the dive sites and easier to get back in the boat, especially for elderly/less able-bodied divers.

This boat comes highly recommended for shark and pelagic lovers, Tech divers, and fans of coral reefs and wrecks – a luxury yacht, friendly crew, knowledgeable guides, and delicious food.

WHAT MAKES SCUBA SCENE THE BEST LIVEABOARD IN THE RED SEA?

Expertly run by Ahmed Fadel & Elke Bojanowski, the layout of M/Y Scuba Scene shows their combined work experience on Egyptian liveaboards. The kitchen and spacious dining area are in the lower deck (hull). All guest cabins are on the main or upper deck, so large windows and plenty of distance to the engine room make for comfortable, quiet and light accommodations.

A number of sundecks with both shaded and sunny sections give the guests a choice of where and how to enjoy the surface intervals.

PADI® (Professional Association of Diving Instructors®) has recently launched their new Professional Development Excellence Award in EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa), celebrating PADI Five Star Instructor Development Centers (IDC)  that are championing creating more PADI Professionals, at all levels, during the previous calendar year.

“While becoming a PADI Five Star IDC Center is a prized accreditation amongst members, this exclusive rating comes with the responsibility of training the next generation of divers to become PADI Instructors,” explains Dave Murray, Managing Director for PADI EMEA.

“PADI’s commitment to a continuing education philosophy encourages divers to realise their dreams of a career as a PADI Pro, teaching others to do what they love – to scuba dive. This new recognition award distinguishes productive PADI Five Star IDC stores for the time and effort they dedicate to marketing and conducting the professional training needed to grow the scuba diving industry.”

PADI’s EMEA Professional Development Excellence Award recognises members for reaching specific milestones based on the number of PADI Pro certifications they issue annually. It also provides an extra layer of credentials in their “Pro Development Status” to potential Divemaster and IDC candidates, along with any other prospective Pro-level customers and prospective employees.

The first awards were distributed earlier this year, with 12 PADI Five Star IDC Centers receiving the Platinum Award. This means that they have issued a minimum of 100 PADI Professional certifications from Divemaster to IDC Staff Instructor, which include 30 Core Professional certifications and 70 Continuing Education Instructor level certifications.
