North Tours

A great number of wrecks and reefs with an abundant underwater world are situated at the northern part of the Red Sea:

North – Northern Wrecks and Reefs

This Red Sea Diving itinerary combines the most famous wrecks in the northern Red Sea with stunning wall and hard coral garden reef diving.

Dive the famous four wrecks of Abu Nuhas, the Ships’ Graveyard. This reef lies close to the ship-lane toward the Suez Canal and has claimed more ships than any other in the Red Sea. The wrecks are very scenic, covered in corals and they are fantastic for photography, especially the Carnatic, having sunk in 1869.

The very famous SS Thistlegorm and the recently discovered Rosalie Moeller are World War II wrecks and one of the highlights of this cruise. The SS Thistlegorm sunk in 1941, having been bombed by the Germans while on a mission to deliver a cargo of ammunition and war materials to the British troops in North Africa. The Rosalie Moeller, a British coal cargo, suffered the same demise only two days later.

This Red Sea diving safari will also take you to Ras Mohamed National Park at the tip of Sinai, famous for its breath-taking walls rich in soft and fan corals and populated with huge shoals of fish. Nutrient-rich sediments from the Golf of Aqaba attract many fish species and also feed the coral polyps creating a paradise for divers.

You will also visit the Red Sea diving reefs off Hurghada which are very rich and wide-ranging. A variety of colorful walls and hard coral gardens with plenty of colorful fish make them well worth a visit.
