Ghazala has 12 cabins, including three suites. On the lower deck there are 5 twin bed cabins and he majestic king suite stretches across the width of the boat. Make your way up to the upper deck and you'll find 4 upper deck twin cabins and new for 2023 two lovely twin or double suites.

One of the first things you will notice walking on board the Ghazala Explorer is how wide she is. This width gives you extra space not just inside the boat but most importantly, on the dive deck and dive platform too.

The Escorted Get Wrecked tour gives you the chance to pick the brains of our on board expert whilst visiting the world class wreck dives of the the Northern Red Sea!
The Escorted Get Wrecked tour gives you the chance to pick the brains of an expert whilst wreck diving the Egyptian Red Sea. This is the itinerary for those divers that want to know more about the wrecks they are visiting as well as experience the complete comfort of our Red Sea liveaboards. Each wreck dived bristles with the history and the stories that brought it to the Northern Red Sea. These are the living treasures that our expert, Mike Ward will explain in his friendly and funny presentations.
Mike Ward has been running our wreck trips for several years and few can compete with his encylopeadic knowledge of the Red Sea wrecks. He is most often found underwater with his nose in a small corner of the wreck. Armed with a camera, Mike has dived the UK, Mediterranean and Red Sea extensively. In his spare time topside, Mike delves the shipping annuals. He has an intimate knowledge of each site visited and is more than happy to talk about the history of the wrecks - and from which angle you can get the best photographs. Mike has a devoted following and after a week on board with him you too will see why!
A check dive kicks off the week and then - let the wreck diving begin! Abu Nuhas holds no less than 4 wrecks, all of which can be dived under the right conditions. The Giannis D, Carnatic, Chrisoula K and Kimon M... famous for their different cargos of wood, bottles, tiles and lentils. Let Mike enthuse you with his passion for the Red Sea's Second World War wreck too - both the Rosalie Moller and Thistlegorm lie at anchor and are well worth the multiple dives dedicated to them on this itinerary. Consider the impact of the Suez canal whilst diving the Ulysess, Kingston and Dunraven. Shark and Yolanda and Ras Pieter offer an opportunity the glean more about Egypt's modern history and critical role in international shipping.
The Northern Red Sea is quite unlike any other wreck destination and with Mike's expertise, the beauty of the region is undeniable. The Escorted Get Wrecked itinerary is perfect for any diver - novice to technical. From 5m to 50m, there is undeniably something for everyone. A stimulating experience for the mind and the eyes, understanding more about the wrecks visited on the route, really helps to see the wrecks in their full glory.
