For 8 days, 7 nights we will be living on board the M/Y Golden Dolphin 3, cruising the colorful north Red Sea coral reefs. We expect to have around 4 dives per day, overall 20 dives in 6 diving days.
The “Thistlegorm” is probably the most famous wreck in the Red Sea. The British ship was on its way to deliver military equipment of all kinds for the British troops in North Africa. It was on the 6th of October 1941 when two German bombers attacked the Thistlegorm. The wreck sunk upright on the sea-bottom at 30-m depth. Tanks, trucks, motorcycles, weapons, railway carriage and one railway locomotive are waiting us to explore them.
The “Dunraven”, and this was a sailing boat, steam engines were used to transport spices and timber, the reef Shaab Mahmoud in March 1876 during a trip from Mumbai to Newcastle and sank quickly. The ship broke in two, and is upside down with the stern depth of 28 m at the stern will find the propeller and the rudder, which is overgrown with coral. Inside the wreck will find thousands of GlassFish.
The reef of Abu Nuhas is famous for its 4 shipwrecks. The Greek cargo ship “John D.” sank on March 19, 1983 to a depth of 27 m and it is totally covered with hard and soft corals. Penetration is easy as there are many entry and exit points.
The steamer «Carnatic” struck on the reef in September 1869. Located at a depth of 25m, it has its bow and stern almost intact. This wreck is full of beautiful corals, hard and soft and full of life. The uniqueness Carnatic is that it is a steamer with sails which is quite rare.
The Ras Mohammed marine park offers dreamlike diving spots, such as the Shark and Jolanda Reef. The quality and quantity of corals and fish here is superb.
Important: DAN (or other) diving insurance is compulsory.
