Wreck, wrecks and more wrecks... that is whats beneath the crystal blue surface of the Red Sea. Located between Africa and Asia, the warm tropical waters are home to more than 1100 species of fish, 200 species of hard and soft corals and 44 species of shark. This rich diversity is in part due to the expanse of coral reef that extends along its coastline.

Itinerary Highlights:

Lots and lots of metal! a few reefs, but a huge selection of wrecks, the best the Red Sea has to offer and a few night dives but not guaranteed.

 

SS. Thistlegorm - Probably the most famous of the Red Sea wrecks. The 126.5m English Freighter was bombed by German aviation on 6th October 1941. Home to an enormous variety of marine life and is especially popular with large schooling fish.

 

Abu Nuhas - The 'Ships Graveyard', this reef is dangerously positioned close to the busy shipping lanes of the Gulf of Suez and has claimed more ships than any other in the area. Four wrecks lay on a sandy seafloor at the bottom of a steep sloping reef layered with table corals. Wrecks here include the Ghiannis D, Carnatic, Chrisoula K and Kimon M.

 

Rosalie Moller - The greenish water on this wreck offers a mystical ambiance rarely found on other Red Sea wrecks. With the main deck at 35m, the superstructure can be explored up to 30m and before you start your ascent.

 

Big Brother - The western side of the island has two impressive wrecks which both lie almost vertical on the side of the reef. The most spectacular is the Numidia, a large cargo steamer which sank in 1901 and now lies on the tip of the island between 10 and 80 metres covered in soft corals and frequented by large pelagics. The smaller wreck of the Aida (sitting between 30 and 65 metres) was a lighthouse authority supply vessel which sank in bad weather in 1957.
