This trip is a mixture of what the Red Sea is famous for - superb wrecks and colourful reefs. The trip will include dives on all the well known wrecks as follows:
SS. Thistlegorm – Shaab Ali
Probably the most famous of the Red Sea wrecks. The 129m 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. The cargo includes a trucks, and motorbikes lined up ready for action. In addition you will also be able to inspect the cargo of rifles and waders (yes waders for the desert). In addition she is home to an enormous variety of marine life and is especially popular with large schooling fish.
Also known as the ‘Ships Graveyard’, this reef is dangerously positioned close to the busy shipping lanes of the Gulf of Suez. This reef 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. On the south side is a safe anchorage for liveaboards and two ergs, known as Yellow Fish Reef. Giannus D – Abu Nuhas
In 26m of water and leaning to port with a fully intact stern section and an impressive engine room packed with glass fish.
Carnatic – Abu Nuhas
A British P&O steamer which struck the reef in 1869. She lays in 29m and now the whole hull is draped in multicoloured soft corals. The wreck is home to glass fish, octopus, morays, jacks and tuna cruise overhead.
Tile Wreck – Abu Nuhas
There is much discussion over the true identity of this wreck. Sunk in 1978 fully laden with stone floor tiles, she now lies from 4m to 30m.
Lentil Wreck – Abu Nuhas
A cargo vessel which sank in 1978 whilst carrying a heavy load of lentils. She rests at 30m on her starboard side. The bow area is completely destroyed but the main section and propeller areas are good to explore.
At the gate of the Straits of Gubal is 'Bluff Point', which gets its name from the turbulence created by strong currents that beat the eastern wall of the island. The wreck of the 'Ulysses' lies on the reef 300m north of the lighthouse, starting at 5m and sloping to 25m. 'The Barge' wreck, south of the lighthouse, provides divers with a fun and unusual night dive. The wrecks skeleton creates protection for all types of night creatures
As well as these wrecks will will also explore the best reefs including Ras Mohammed
m/y Blue Voyager
Built in 2006, the Red Sea vessel M/Y blue Voyager is the most recent addition to blue o two and underwent a 10 week refurbishment to ensure that she was sparkling in time for her first sailing at the beginning of April 2011.
