Camel Tribe - the first daily boat of it's kind.

Since 1996 Camel Dive Club has enpowered people with disabilities to find freedom through diving. It therefore made sense to build a boat which would make operations as smooth as possible for all involved with these groups AND for our individual disabled client base. The saloon is easily accessible and all food and beverage areas have been built with the wheelchair user in mind; one toilet has a low shower, sink and sliding door; the dive deck is a huge 5 meter by 6 meter area, allowing easy manoeuvrability; it has a low seating area to make equipment preparation easy; and the hoist is specially designed to help with exiting divers with limited mobility from the water. This is the first daily boat in Sharm el Sheikh to have GPS, an underwater camera, a rear-mounted camera that also has infa-red night vision, a sonar ‘fish finder’ and TV display showing information seen by the boat’s skipper (such as GPS, navigation charts and an underwater camera view!). Camel Dive Club is committed to conservation issues and to minimize negative impacts on the surrounding area caused by our business. Our boat Camel Tribe is the first daily boat of its kind in Sharm el Sheikh to have all the onboard electronics powered by a solar powered generation system. This is supplemented by an additional alternator from one of the engines. The boat’s septic tank means that effluents will not be pumped into the water whilst on a mooring and there is also an energy-efficient fresh air inlet system, designed to keep the lower saloon cool. We welcome you to join the Tribe on your next holiday!
