Accommodation & Facilities
With 30 meters length (98 feet) and a width of 7 meters (23 feet), Miss Nouran demonstrates all the details of a seagoing dive vessel. 10 cabins for up to 20 divers offer plenty of space. Of these 10 cabins, 8 are bunk-bed cabins and two cabins have two single beds each. All cabins are equipped with individually controlled air conditioning and private bathrooms.
Miss Nouran features a cosy saloon with modern audio and video and a small library. Meals are served buffet style. In addition to local specialties mainly European cuisine is on the menu. The vessel has two partially covered sun decks with comfortable mattresses and pillows. The electronic equipment and the safety standards of the vessel are state of the art.
3-4 dives are offered per day, which are performed mainly off the two ship's small boats (Zodiacs), but also off the dive platform. 12 liter (80 cuft) aluminum tanks with either DIN or INT connection are available. In addition, a Nitrox membrane system is available on board. Nitrox is offered free of charge.
The off shore Marine Park islands, The Brothers, Daedalus, Rocky Islands and Zabargad Islands, are the highlights of the Red Sea. The Brother Islands, two outer reefs rising from great depths, are one of the world's best dive sites. Steep walls, covered by stunning soft corals of all colours, black and fan corals, two wrecks, pelagic fish and schools of fish will excite any diver. With some luck you?ll meet thresher sharks, grey reef sharks, hammer head, oceanic white tip sharks and mantas. The trip in stormy weather may be somewhat rough, but the diving makes up for the effort.
Another sure winner for world-class diving is close to the Daedalus Islands, where especially in summer you are very likely to encounter pelagics, and be prepared to meet schools of hammer head sharks!
Excellent and almost unspoilt dive sites are in the areas of Rocky Island and Zabargad Island. All those sites are teaming with schools of tropical fish and promise lots of big fish action. Much further south, St John is a collection of small reefs offering all the beauty of the Red Sea with breathtaking reefs covered with hard corals and soft corals in all colours. Add the possibility to spot a wide variety of pelagics, big fish, Dolphins and diving through a labyrinth of caves.
The North offers very good to spectacular wreck diving. The Thistlegorm is a must dive, you cannot miss this one! She holds plenty cargo like motorcycles, locomotives and war goods - a really unique dive. The wrecks of Abu Shaab Nuhas are also worth a visit. Dives in the Tiran Strait complete the tours in the north.
Miss Nouran is an upmarket vessel that offers great itineraries, value and service.
