Sea Queen Fleet has had many ups and downs. Hard times, good times, but always with a spirit held high.

Founded in 1993 by Karim Fayed and friends, the company grew and flourished for the “Golden Years” of diving in Egypt;  but had to downsized following hard times starting with the 2011 revolution in Egypt. Since 2014 we happily operate with one boat, out SOUTH MOON, and we are confident that it will go always upwards and onwards from here.


Office & Organization

Karim Fayed


Karim was a founder of Sea Queen Fleet and the general manager since the foundation; he is the head behind it all. He founded the company in 1993, and had already then a lot of experience in managing diving centres and liveaboard safaris. As a Master Scuba Diver Trainer and one of the first Trimix instructors in Egypt he learned the ropes and amassed extensive knowledge in diving the Red Sea and in the safari business.

She is responsible for all reservations and for the organization of reliable, smooth and safe going trips. Doro is a scuba diver since more than 40 years; in 1992 she started working as dive instructor in Egypt and changed later into the 'dry areas' of dive operations. Thus she got a deep insight into everything related to the diving business in the Red Sea, and knows well what divers and clients need above and under water.
