Dive Sites in Egypt: Red Sea Wrecks

 

 
Wrecks

Dive sites such as Ras Mohammed, Jackson Reef, Blue Hole and many more are legends among divers. Names like Thistlegorm, Dunraven or Carnatic raise the attention of every wreck-loving diver.

Since the opening of the Suez Canal in 1860īs, many ships have passed through the gulf heading Europe to the Orient. Many have also perished, snared by the shallow reef that loom beneath the surface.

Most of the ships rest in safediving depth. So exploring them is not imposing any danger. During one week special wreck-safaris, the wrecks of Shab Ali and Shab Abu Nahas are on the itinerary.
