North and Dahab
With some of the most iconic dives Red Sea has to offer, this route includes the Wrecks, Reefs as well as a special addition into the Gulf of Aqaba to the Straits of Tiran. After the dive check-in the tour starts in style, visiting the ‘Shipwreck graveyard” of Abu Nuhas, where this hidden reef has caused 4 wrecks to their watery grave. The oldest wreck, Carnatic, a 19th Century passenger Steamship loaded with wine and gold, struck the reef where she lay alone for over 100 years. Kimon M, a German built freighter, carrying Lentils via the Suez and Chrisoula K, on sail to Jeddah carrying Italian floor tiles joined her in the 20th century. Giannis D, with the suspicion of insurance fraud added by littering the ocean floor with its cargo of wood. Over time these ancient wrecks formed artificial reefs but each is still packed with unique artifacts to tell their story. Dunraven, a former British Steamship offers divers a picturesque view of soft corals and glass fish over the boiler of the Steam Engine. The mighty, SS Thistlegorm, launched in April 1940 the world’s most famous 129m British freighter, used in WW2 loaded with war supplies to support the English allies in the Western Dessert, although armed with anti-aircraft guns, was bombed by German Henkel’s. She sank in 32 m of water along the channel of the Suez, offering us an enormous variety of marine life and schooling fish. Jacques Cousteau onboard the Calypso whilst recording “The Silent World” in 1952 discovered the wreck, keeping her location a secret for another 4 years.
Ras Mohamed National Park, steep walls and drop offs, make the perfect conditions for huge schools of Batfish, Trevallies, Tuna, Barracuda, and Unicorn Fish. Plunging coral walls, huge gorgonians and fire corals with endless visibility make for spectacular wall diving. Tiran spots include Gordon, Thomas, Woodhouse and Jackson reef. Although the wrecks still visible from the top of the reef, underwater a variety of topography includes, sloping walls, canyons, large cracks and swim through. Night dives in Gubal Island open a divers eyes to the spectacular Nocturnal life underwater. The water takes on a new life once the sun sets.
Dahab is one of the Sinai’s most treasured diving destinations. One of the premier dive sites of Dahab is “The Bells” a large vein of rock that has eroded out leaving a deep gash in the reef that drops to 45 meters formed where a deep groove cuts into the reef top. The “Blue Hole” dive has stunning colonies of Star coral, Gorgonians, soft and black corals are to be found here. You will pass anemones with their anemone fish and come across Butterfly fish and Angelfish on this dive. Finally, you reach the Blue Hole and enter this circular–shaped break in the coral reef swimming over the reef wall at around 7-5 meters. The Canyon, a large crack in the ground, penetrated from the deepest side, allowing divers to exit up the shallow slope and Ras Abu Galum National Park offer the very best opportunity to dive these notorious sites and a chance to see how the Bedouins, an old fishing community live.
