North of Hurghada the Red Sea is divided into two arms, the Gulf of Aqaba and the Gulf of Suez.
The entrance to the Gulf of Suez is the Gubal Strait where numerous wrecks lie. A few of the tours dive sites are;
- Abu Nuhas with 4 wrecks; F.E Giannis D – a Greek cargo ship, Kimon M, Chrisoula K the tile transporter or the Carnatic – and old post ship.
- The Rosalie Möller; an English ship that was sunk by German airplanes, allows you to fe el like a true pioneer. Because of its location it is only very rarely visited.
- The Thistlegorm; maybe the wreck highlight of the Red Sea. An English war supply ship that sunk while it was at anchor with all its freight. You can see trucks, motorcycles and locomotives.
Our opinion; a safari with a focus on wrecks, but nevertheless, a lot of coral gardens.
