The Red Sea is home to a large number of wrecks ranging in age and historical significance.  There are three famous Red Sea wrecks which are reachable from Sharm el Sheikh and which Blue Lagoon Diving Center would like to share with you. This excursion includes:

  1. Full Day Diving.

  2. 2 dives

  3. Transfers

Dunraven

  • The wreck of the Dunraven a British Steamship that was bound for Bombay now sits in the straits of Gubal at a depth of 28m at the base of a sloping reef with a beacon marking the southern tip of Sha’ab Mahmud.

  • Carrying a cargo of timber and cotton which lost when a fire broke out and the ship hit the reef and sank.  The holds are now empty but are home to an abundance of marine life.

  • Penetration is easy and the light that streams into the hold makes for some great photography.

  • Schools of Glass Fish  and many scorpion fish can found around the engine area with the dive ending on the reef.

  • An early morning departure is needed as the wreck is situated several hours from Sharm el Sheikh.

  • Second dive conducted in Ras Mohammed Marine Park.

SS Thistlegorm

  • The wreck of the SS Thistlegorm a steamship with a gross tonnage of 4898 and length of 126 m . Situated in the Straits of Gubal drown by German bombers in WWII.

  • The wreck itself lays at 30m with the deck at 15m with much of its cargo intact divers will see motorbikes.

  • The blast area is large and divers’ can easily envision the explosion and the speed at which she sank.  Her large propeller and the guns at her stern are still intact.

Rosalie Moller

  • The position of the Rosalie Moller was given away when the light from the blast of the SS Thistlegorm lit up the light sky.

  • The 108m long Rosalie Moller now lays at 50m with her deck at 35m.

  • The propeller and rudder are huge and as she is so intact a tour of the outside provides a better dive than actual penetration as due to the silt visibility can become zero.

  • The marine life on this wreck is simply amazing with the deck being alive with fish.

Note: trip for professional advanced open water  – check before dive
