The Red Sea holds some of the healthiest, most thriving coral reefs on the planet. Come join us as we enjoy them.

This will be a special trip, with opportunities for both recreational and technical divers. Recreational divers will be visiting a suite of sites in the range of 10-100 feet (3-30 m). Technical divers (including rebreather support) will have the option to dive deeper depths and longer bottom times.

We will begin traveling north to the southern end of the Sinai Peninsula. Here we will dive some of the iconic sites, including reefs, walls, and WWII shipwrecks. After a few days, we will steam to the southern Red Sea, where the water is warmer, and the corals spectacular! This region also boasts of some fabulous wreck diving, starting from the surface, and in some cases extending to depths in excess of 350 fsw. (110m).

Space on the vessel is limited. 2 nights hotel rooms in Hurghada are included in the trip price. A non-refundable (but transferable) deposit of $2,000 will secure your position on the trip. Download brochure (left) for details, or an application to sign up.

An optional post-boat trip to Cairo, Luxor, Aswan, and other locations to see the pyramids is available as an extension. (Below)

The MV Nouran

The MV Nouran is 120 ft (36m) long and has space for 26 guests in 13 twin en-suite cabins. Designed by a marine architect, she handles the rare occasion that the Red Sea “blows” exceptionally well. Under the command of Captain Ramadan, her crew are attentive and professional.

The saloon and cabins are fully air conditioned. The saloon is spacious and is equipped with TV, DVD and stereo. Meals are served buffet style, and snacks and all drinks (except alcohol) are included on-board. There are 2 large sundecks for relaxing. The dive deck offers plenty of space for all of your equipment and for divers to gear up.

Our Route

We board the MV Nouran in Hurghada and then steam north to Abu Nihas. Here we do our check dives and visit four stunning shallow (5-90 ft / 2-27m) wrecks. Then we will cross the Gulf of Suez to dive the Thistlegorm Wreck or the Dunraven. After this we circle the southernmost point of the Sinai Peninsula, Ras Mohammad, and commence reef and wall diving. Once we are done, we move south to the Brothers to dive the Numidia and the Aida.

Steaming south from The Brothers we will enter our own little world. Very few vessels venture as far south as Zabargat and St Johns to dive. We may dive Ras Tirombi, Claudia’s Reef, Maksoor, Rocky and Zabargat.
