North & Wrecks
One of the most famous and popular wrecks in the Red Sea is certainly the SS Thistlegorm. Rediscovered in 1956 by Jacques Cousteau, the wreck offers one-of-a-kind dives with a variety of marine life and spectacular holds with relics of the Second World War. While diving you can discover trucks and motorcycles. Worth seeing is the stern with its machine guns and the locomotive on the ocean floor next to the wreck. Watch out for ammunition lying around!
Between 5 and 27 meters’ depth lies the beautifully overgrown wreck of the Ulysses. At Bluff Point there is a remarkable wall with small overhangs and fantastic corals.
Abu Nuhas ship graveyard on the Gubal Strait houses four wrecks at moderate depths. The Giannis D, Carnatic, Chrisoula K and Kimon M are overgrown with colourful corals and form artificial reefs for numerous fish, shrimp, octopus and moray eels. Interesting dives are guaranteed, because each of the wrecks is different.
If the weather and current conditions permit, the Rosalie Moller can also be dived. The legendary wreck lies in the Strait of Gubal and is considered one of the most beautiful wrecks in the Red Sea. Thousands of glassfish, jackfish, lionfish and snappers are found here. With a length of over 100 meters, the wreck offers plenty of space for discoveries. Due to the depth - between 20 and 50 meters, the wreck is less suitable for beginners and novice divers.
