Get Wrecked! (from Hurghada)

Abu Nuhas - Ulysses - Rosalie Moeller - Thistlegorm and others

Please note: As a 21+ DIVES cruise, there's a good chance that you can enjoy 21 or more dives on a 7-day safari if you so wish. You must be a PADI Open Water diver or equivalent and you are expected to be able to complete each dive with your buddy or following the guide. The guides may not enter the water and remain on-board as surface support for some dives. However to get the most from the trip we suggest you are certified to dive to 30 meters and be PADI Advanced Open Water or equivalent. The PADI Advanced course can be completed whilst on-board so be sure to pre-book.

The Get Wrecked cruise combines the 'best of the best' of the most famous wrecks in the northern Red Sea along with some stunning reef diving.

Leaving from Hurghada, we aim to dive all the wrecks in the area including:

El Mina, an Egyptian mine sweeper lying just outside Hurghada's harbour; the Carnatic, the Chrisoula K ('tile wreck'), the Kimon M ('lentil wreck') and Giannis D at Abu Nuhas; at Gubal islands we dive the Barge, the Ulysses (sunk in 1887) and the Rosalie Moeller; next onto the Kingston (or Sarah H, sunk in 1881) lying at Shag Rock; and, of course, the Dunraven (sunk 1876) at Beacon Rock situated in the Ras Mohammed National Park, then finally the most famous wreck in the Red Sea, the Thistlegorm, which lies at Shaab Ali.

These wrecks are spectacular and make fantastic material for the underwater photographer, being smothered in corals, especially the Carnatic, which sank in 1869. The famous SS Thistlegorm and the Rosalie Moller are World War II wrecks and one of the highlights of this cruise.

The SS Thistlegorm was sunk in 1941 after being bombed by the German Luftwaffe while on a mission to deliver a cargo of ammunition and other war materials to the British troops in North Africa. The Rosalie Moeller, carrying a cargo of coal, suffered the same fate just two days later.

In between wreck dives you will also visit the reefs of the Straits of Gubal, Gulf of Suez and those to the north of Hurghada. A variety of deep walls and hard coral gardens with an abundance of reef fish make them well worth a visit.

All wrecks are subject to divers' experience and weather conditions.
