SS. Thistlegorm – Shaab Ali
Probably the most famous of the Red Sea wrecks. The 129m English Freighter was bombed by German aviation on 6th October 1941. Today she creates an artificial reef on a sandy bottom at 32m max depth. She is home to an enormous variety of marine life and is especially popular with large schooling fish.
Small Crack - Shaab Mahmoud
This is a small split in the middle of Shaab Mahmoud’s barrier. Drift along the outside wall next to beautiful corals and colourful fish. Look for a sand slope that leads you up and through the crack. When the current is right you can fly through the 5m deep channel and be thrown out across the sandy lagoon!
At the gate of the Straits of Gubal is ‘Bluff Point’, which gets its name from the turbulence created by strong currents that beat the eastern wall of the island. The wreck of the ‘Ulysses’ lies on the reef 300m north of the lighthouse, starting at 5m and sloping to 25m. 'The Barge' wreck, south of the lighthouse, provides divers with a fun and unusual night dive. The wrecks skeleton creates protection for all types of night creatures.
This large circular reef is often overlooked but offers excellent diving on pristine coral from any location on its perimeter.
This wreck lies west of Big Gubal Island. She was on her way to Alexandria with a cargo of coal when sunk by German aircraft on the 7th October 1941, just two days after the Thistlegorm. The wreck is in pristine condition and home to large shoals of glass fish. Watch out for the Jacks as they fly past hunting the smaller fish! Take care of lion fish hiding around the stern but if you look down you see the huge size of the propeller. A great dive with the right planning.
