North of Hurghada, the Red Sea divides into 2 arms, the Gulf of Aqaba and the Gulf of Suez. The entrance to the Gulf of Suez, which has been heavily used since the opening of the Suez Canal, is the road from Gubal. This is due to a variety of reefs and islands difficult to navigate. This was doomed to a large number of ships. Who has not heard of the 4 wrecks of Abu Nuhas or the Rosalie Moller and Thistlegorm. The North and Wrecks Safari features superb dive sites such as the Bluff Point or Blind Reef with colorful soft corals and its very short distances.
Dive sites that can be dived on this tour are the mystical SS Thistlegorm is a must for every Red Sea diver. It is a treat for wreck friends, not least because of their spectacular cargo. It also offers a variety of fish. Schools of barracudas or big tunas and snappers are not uncommon here. As an artificial reef, it also attracts countless coral fish. Worth seeing is the stern with its cannons, the midships and fore ship, the bow and the cargo, as well as the vehicles, the two locomotives, the tender and the water car. The currents at the wreck are moderate, sometimes strong. The view is generally moderate and often many boats are onsite. The best time to dive is the early morning hours.
Gubal Island: Bluff Point has next to the attractive Ulysses to offer another, currently unknown wreck in the north. Due to the prevailing, strong current, gorgonians and soft corals are particularly pronounced, and barracudas, like reef sharks, repeatedly cross the diver's path. In an extremely well-covered grotto below the anchorage, there are all kinds of cleaner shrimp, pipefish and frogfish to discover.
Rosalie Moller: The Rosalie Moller is considered one of the most beautiful wrecks in the northern Red Sea and is located on the west side of the Gubal Island. It convinces by the incredible wealth of small swarm fish. Add to this the diffuse atmosphere, as well as the almost perfect state of the former coal transport, which stands parked on the seabed. Because of the depth, the wreck is unsuitable for beginners. Strong currents are rather rare on the wreck.
Abu Nuhas: Also known as the "Ship Cemetery". Who has not heard of the 4 wrecks of Abu Nuhas? This reef has more ships than any other in the area. On the north side of Abu Nuhas, the four wrecks lie on a sandy seabed. Giannis D, SS Carnatic, Chrisoula K and Kimono M. On the south side there is a safe mooring for liveaboard ships.
The exact dive safari route and reefs that are visited are weather dependent and depend on the diving experience of our guests.
