The chef prepares freshly made dishes from local and international cuisines. There is a self-service bar for complimentary beverages and snacks available all day long. A selection of wines, beers, and other non-free drinks are available for purchase. We advise guests to hand in their notice in advance for vegetarian and other specific dietary requirements upon booking.
The dive deck has personal gearboxes for divers, camera storage, large rinse tanks, and an in-place fill station. Along with that are the freshwater showers, fin storage area, and a shared bathroom available to use after a day of underwater exploration. Also, Nitroz membrane compressor, two air compressors and two-speed boats used for diving. MY Jessica can provide free Nitrox for those with certification and a complete set of diving equipment available for rent. The experienced dive guides will escort scuba divers during the whole week of the journey with a minimum of 16 dives including night dives.
The staff aboard will welcome guests with complimentary drinks upon arrival. A detailed itinerary briefing is given before the cruise. Ras Mohammed National Park is a famous worldwide dive destination with a vast quantity of coral reefs and other marine life. It is known for shipwrecks, including the famous SS Thistlegorm. St. Johns offers a colorful coral garden, pinnacles, and a variety of pelagic fishes. Pods of bottlenose dolphins hunt in search of food in this area. The Red Sea is famous for oceanic white-tips, tiger sharks, whale sharks, hammerheads and other varieties of sharks. MY Jessica invites everyone to travel to the Red Sea whole year round. The best season to visit the Red is during the months of September, March, and April. These months have a pleasant daytime temperature which is the best time for sunbathing and snorkeling.
