If heavy metal is your thing! Enjoy this classic itinerary full of iconic wrecks and stunning reefs across the northern Red Sea!
Beneath the crystal blue surface of the Red Sea lies a rich and diverse ecosystem, just waiting to be explored. 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.
The Red Sea is a unique marine paradise that offers some of the most spectacular diving in the world. With miles of beautiful coral reef, numerous wrecks and a vast array of marine life, from brightly coloured nudibranchs and tropical fish to large pelagics such as oceanic white tips and hammerheads, there really is something for everyone! Whether you are a complete beginner or an experienced diver, your Red Sea scuba diving holiday experience will be one that you never forget!
Day 1: Start the week with a check dive before heading north for an afternoon wreck dive at Abu Nuhas followed by a night dive.
Days 2 - 4: The next three days are spent cruising the wrecks of the northern Red Sea. Normally you will have the opportunity to make three day dives and a night dive each day. The exact itinerary and order of dive sites will vary depending on the conditions but you can expect to visit plenty of wrecks including the world-famous Thistlegorm, Ghiannis D, Carnatic, Rosalie Moller and potentially even more.
Day 5: Visit the Salem Express and Al Kafain, two large ferry wrecks close to Sha'ab Sheer in Safaga.
Day 6: A day at the Big Brother Island where the wrecks of Aida and Numidia are located.
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. Today she creates an artificial reef on a sandy bottom at 32m max depth. She is home to an enormous variety of marine life and is especially popular with large schooling fish. Please note: Due to CDWS regulations, you must have a minimum of 20 logged dives in order to dive on this wreck. Other dives on the itinerary are not affected.
Abu Nuhas - Also known as 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. On the north side are four wrecks laying 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. On the south side is a safe anchorage for liveaboards and two ergs, known as Yellow Fish Reef.
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.
