Boat Description

In Djibouti, Africa the 25 metre Elegante liveaboard encounters the majestic whale shark and spectacular reefs. The traditional wooden schooner has 7 cabins, equipped with ensuite and AC, to provide service to 14 guests. A large outside dining area offers fine dining while surrounded by ocean. Wine and beer are available onboard as guests relax in the evening after an incredible day of diving. The Elegante has everything divers need in terms of entertainment, such as TV, DVD's, HiFi equipment, books and games, as well as full air tanks. On a 6 night stay, observe whale shark as they stop in Djibouti during their annual migration. From October to January, guests can escape the crowds of the main driving routes and snorkelers to marvel at the whale shark feeding in the plankton-rich waters. Experience 16 dives and venture out by 4x4 to Lake Assal, a crater lake and the second saltiest body of water in the world.
