MY Deli Liveaboard
This liveaboard trip aboard the Deli yacht is at a time of year when the chances of spotting whale sharks are at their highest. Djibouti is one of the easiest places in the world to see whale sharks. As they are feeding at the surface this means snorkeling with them is easy. In between these encounters, there are some fantastic dives on offer. Dive areas include Ras Eiro, Ras Korali, the Bay of Ghoubet, Tadjoura & Moucha. With 195 miles of coastline to explore and pristine reefs at the ready, a dive liveaboard in Djibouti offers something for everyone.
Djibouti sits between the African and the Arabian tectonic plates and it’s possible to dive the crack between these two plates at a dive site imaginatively called ‘The Crack’.
The MY Deli is a beautiful Turkish schooner offering exciting dive trips in the Gulf of Tadjourah, Djibouti. Offering a relaxed environment, the MY Deli caters to 12 divers in 6 cabins. Each cabin features double or twin beds, private bathrooms and fans (no A/C). There is an indoor salon, a covered outdoor dining area, and sundeck with loungers at the bow of the boat. On the main deck at the front of the boat, there is a sunbed area, ideal for relaxing in between dives and enjoying the view.
Scuba diving in Djibouti will surprise a lot of divers with the sheer amount of diversity available in this little known area. It’s a place that isn’t an obvious dive holiday destination for many westerners, yet diving in Djibouti is utterly breathtaking, and if the words ‘The Red Sea’ mean anything to you, you’ll understand why. Little known, the Republic of Djibouti is located in the Horn of Africa, bordered by Eritrea, Somalia & Ethiopia, with the Red Sea to the North, Indian Ocean to the South and the Gulf of Aden on it’s doorstep, it gives access to some of the world’s most famous bodies of water and is sure to be an absolute mecca for scuba diving.
It’s a place where every component of a great scuba diving experience comes together – crystal clear waters, reliable weather, excellent facilities and best of all some of the most diverse and healthy marine life on the planet. Egypt is the most thought of access point, however Djibouti is easy to reach, and is far less touristy, meaning that dive spots here are much quieter than its North African neighbour, allowing divers to explore the stunning underwater landscape in relative peace. Djibouti scuba diving is probably best known for the large numbers of the majestic Whale Sharks in its waters, which, in season, you are very likely to come across, especially if undertaking several dives per day.
