Miss Nouran, part of the Sea Serpent fleet, has recently been refurbished for liveaboard diving trips in Egypt and is able to accommodate up to 20 divers in 10 cabins, spread across the upper, middle and lower decks. Accommodations have en-suite facilities, luggage storage space, bedding, towels and even bathrobes are provided to each guest.
The saloon, together with the separate dining area, are large with plush finishings inviting you to relax. This ensures that your meal times and surface intervals are spent unwinding in comfort. Free 3G wi-fi internet is provided onboard.
Enjoying the Red Sea's fresh air and surrounding desert landscapes is an easy pleasure on board Miss Nouran. 2 sundecks, one of which is partially shaded, provides generous spaces with plenty of comfortable furnishings. Mattresses and cushions are ideal for sunning yourself or taking a nap between dives, or simply enjoying the Egypt sunset and the company of your fellow liveaboard guests.
Miss Nouran provides scuba equipment racks on the diving platform itself, making kitting up and entering the water child's play.
