Great reefs & wrecks in the north

Reefs & Wrecks (North)

The northern Red Sea offers some of the best dives in the world. Famous reefs like the reefs of marine park Ras Mohammed and Gubal. And what about the world famous Thistlegorm, the swim through the engine room of Ghannis D or the elegant lines of the Carnetic that sunk in the 1880’s.

The Dive sites in Reefs & Wrecks

For the reefs and wrecks tour we depart from Hurghada. As we move into the northern section of the Red Sea and visit great dive sites that are either reefs or wrecks or both.

History has shown us that navigating through the Suez Channel has often lead two navigational errors or first officers falling asleep. Hence there are quite a few great wrecks besides the stunning reefs that mother nature gave us, for instance: SS Thistlegorm, Dunraven, Ghannis D, Carnetic, Chrisola K. and Kingston. Some of the best reefs are: Ras Mohamed National Park with Shark & Yolanda en Anemone city, Shag Rock, Small Gubal Island with The Barge and of course Sha’ab el Erg a.k.a. the dolphin house.

Reefs and wrecks offers up to 4 dives a day, including a night dive. And most dives go to a maximum of 30 meters. Making her suitable for the less experienced divers and a great first tour for liveaboard diving. 

What to see in Reefs & Wrecks

Turtles

Dolphins

Octopus

Rays

Besides the awesome wrecks and their stories the reefs in this tour are absolutely great. All wrecks are sitting on reefs and are already overtaken by the marine life. And that makes this tour great for all divers, wreck as well as reef lovers.

The marine life on this tour is of course no guarantee but based open our experience very likely. Think of hawksbill turtles in Ras Mohamed, eagle rays on reefs close to deep waters, big bottle nose dolphins passing by if you have luck, octopus hiding in plain sight, scorpion fish, stone fish, crocodile fish and the Red Sea walkman besides a fair chance of seeing some Audi’s and our regular reef suspects.
