Itinerary Details

Dive the Thistlegorm, Giannis D, Carnatic, Rosalie Moller, Kingston, Ulysses, Dunraven on this dedicated wreck Red Sea liveaboard itinerary

Get Wrecked Description

Get Wrecked is certain to satisfy any diver interested in wreck diving in the Red Sea. With so many wrecks here in the UK, we are a tough bunch of divers to please. Yet the astounding quality and scope of wrecks in the Northern Red Sea will not leave you disappointed. Shipping down through Suez, the narrow slip of sea that separates Hurgada and the Sinai is peppered with islands and reef tips that have been the downfall of many a captain. But these maritime mishaps have left a legacy that serves up the most fascinating and enjoyable warm water wreck dives you could hope to experience.

After a quick check dive, Get Wrecked leaves no scrap unturned. Abu Nuhas is known locally as ship graveyard. It is home to the oldest wreck in the region, the Carnatic. The photogenic iron ribs show off 19th century workmanship, whilst the Giannis D, lying only a short RIB ride away, is iron clad 20th century beast. The enormous engine room lends itself to an easy penetration dive. The tile wreck, or Chrisoula K, completes the trio. Gubal is where you will find another 3 wrecks, each very different from the last. The Ulysses, Barge and atmospheric Rosalie Moller surround small Gubal. Moving closer to Sharm el Sheikh is the Kingston, a small 19th century coal barge. And then there is the Thistlegorm. Rediscovered by Jacques Cousteau, the Thistlegorm lies beneath the waves, a monument to Second World War. Her strange army cargo is testament to the forces fighting in Africa. The Dunraven finishes the week with a flourish. Get Wrecked is a week for wreck lovers, but that does not mean you can forget the fish. For every year underwater, the wrecks submit further to the reef. Scorpion fish, nudibranch's and crocodile fish can be found on almost every wreck. Old dames such as the Carnatic are a haven for fish of all shapes and sizes. Turtles have made their homes on the Kingston, Ulysses and Thistlegorm. Great pods of bottlenose dolphin are frequently spotted around Gubal and Abu Nuhas. Batfish hover under the upturned bow of the Dunraven as cleaner wrasses set to work. Tuna and snapper weave between the railing of the Rosalie Moller. Yes, there is certainly more than metal on this tour.

Get Wrecked is open to all experience levels and many wrecks can even be seen from the surface, thanks to the fabulous visibility. Photographers, dust of that wide angle lens. Almost all of the wrecks lie in locations sheltered from the currents flowing down the Red Sea. Diving is done from both the boat and RIB. By focusing solely on the wrecks of the region, you get more dive time to probe each wrecks secrets further. Get Wrecked is sure to get even the most ardent wreck diver's attention. Be it the rich history or the myriad of artifacts that can be found, each and every wreck in the Northern Red Sea offers up something special. And with a whole week dedicated to their exploration, Get Wrecked is the fix every diver is looking for.
