The 36m MV Nouran yacht caters to 24 guests in 12 en-suite cabins. All cabins feature individually controlled AC, twin beds, storage space, and port-hole windows. Located on the main deck is a spacious salon with an entertainment area, which leads into the dining room. This features ample space for all guests to dine, a drinks station, and a buffet station where 3 meals per day, all freshly prepared from scratch, will be served. Located on the upper deck is the sundeck with loungers, an added outdoor open lounge area at the bow of the boat, and a covered outdoor lounge at the back of the boat.

Red Sea dive safaris aboard the M/V Nouran liveaboard explore the northern and southern Egyptian Red Sea. The north routes cover the best of the Northern wrecks, including the SS Thistlegorm and Abu Nuhas, as well as the vibrant reefs of Ras Mohammed. The southern route explores the Brothers Islands for a good chance of spotting sharks, Daedalus for the possibility of seeing tiger sharks, hammerheads, threshers, oceanic white tips, and whale sharks, and Elphinstone for stunning drift diving. Diving takes place from the large dive deck and platform at the back of the boat, with rinse tanks, camera storage areas, and plenty of space for kitting up. The M/V Nouran Liveaboard is highly regarded for its tech-diving support. It offers a variety of gasses, such as TriMix and full He/O2 partial pressure, underwater scooters, and a selection of wings, backplates, and tanks.

Great value for the price

Loved getting to see the Thistlegorm but also experience the marine life at brothers! One of the few liveaboards that combine these routes. Had a great time!

Great Liveaboard which I will recommend to friends. Hope to use again.

We went on the BDE route, and greatly enjoyed the chance to see a variety of sharks (hammerhead, oceanic white tip and thresher) and other sea life. The boat also accommodated our request to visit Salem express as a warm up dive. Sayed, our guide and boat's leader knew the best spots, and was able to accommodate varying skill levels in our group as well as to make every dive exciting and unique. Boat is also able to accommodate technical divers.
