Andromeda will take you on one of four spectacular safaris around the Sudanese waters just like her sister boat the Cassiopeia. With 2 more twin cabins than the Cassiopeia and only 2 queen cabins the Andromeda can accommodate more solo guests in the same luxury. You will embark upon Andromeda at Port Sudan jetty after being met at Port Sudan airport and transferred the 15 minutes. With four levels this boat is able to accommodate twenty six passengers with ease and with a European salon, an Arabian café and a one hundred square metre sun deck you will never be short of places to relax onboard. The fact that this boat is larger than many others means that the sail is very smooth and can reach each dive site easier and quicker to allow each guest more time exploring. You will never be short of things to see as on many of these dives you will encounter hammerhead sharks, pristine wrecks and stunning coral reefs to name a few.

Andromeda has thirteen cabins all with en-suite facilities and air conditioning. It has a large air conditioned lounge area, known as the European salon which has an LCD TV/VCR, DVD and a CD player. The Arabian café has a very oriental feel about it with traditional Arabic music playing in the background, you may enjoy relaxing with a shisha (waterpipe) or just with a tea and coffee. The sun deck is one hundred square metres with comfortable deck chairs and cushioned seats. There is also a covered deck in front of the salon where guests may relax in between dives and in the evening. The large dive deck and platform enables guests to have more than enough space to prepare for all of their diving adventures. With two handheld showers to rinse off afterwards and a bathroom for simplicity.
