Hi there community
I am looking to possibly do a live aboard in Jan with a friend, I have done the red sea on numerous occasions, and loved but however she wants warmer water and not a huge cost, any ideas or experiences you can share?

Pete

Have you thought about the Keys or Bahamas. Water is warmer and you might be able to get cheaper cost then the Red Sea.

Hi
I saw your posting it is not a live aboard ( land based) but plenty of good dive sites for a weeks diving, coral, macro life, some wreck dives, but worth the trip just to see the Thresher Sharks.
I was there in January this year with Thresher shark divers. I loved it that much I hope to go back next year wife permitting. there are pictures on my profile of the trip.

Blackbeard’s Cruises live-a-board is an inexpensive all inclusive trip to the Bahamas is a good one to do. I have done it twice.

Thanks every one all very helpful
The issue is the budget my friends is limited to £1500 including flights so would struggle to get out to your side of the pond for that
