Dive-Safari Get Wrecked

Northern Red Sea Wrecks Safari. Start from Hurghada.

Wrecks are a truly spectacular sight. Our safari is dedicated to this. Each wreck has a story from the time of construction until the time of the wreck. But the life of the ship does not end there. The last parking in the depths of the sea gives them a new history, a new life, gradually turning into a part of reefs.

Our safari will allow you to plunge into history since the opening of the Suez Canal today and visit the most famous shipwrecks, as well as the best reefs of the northern part of the Red Sea. Here is some of them:

— the ship Dunraven, which sank in 1876 near a reef with a lighthouse located in the Ras Mohammed nature reserve;
— Carnatic — a wooden sailboat that sank in 1869;
— The cargo ship Giannis D sank at Abu Nuhas;

— Kingston sank in 1881 at Shag Rock;

And finally, one of the most famous wrecks in the Red Sea — Thistlegorm, lies at Shab Ali Reef. This is a real underwater museum, on board which still lies a load of ammunition, Bedford trucks and BSA motorcycles (Birmingham Small Arms), intended for British troops in North Africa.

 For lovers of underwater photography, our safari is a real find! Beautiful views of wrecks and their contents, the local inhabitants — flocks of Carancas, stingrays, Napoleons, turtles and moray eels, as well as a rich macro world will delight you throughout the safari.

We will also visit the reefs in the Gubal Strait, in the Gulf of Suez and other wonderful places located north of Hurghada. The combination of reef walls and coral gardens with an abundance of fish make these dives unforgettable.

Our safari program includes 3-4 dives per day, including night dives. On the last day — 1 dive.
