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 colorful 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!
Shag Rock: This large circular reef is often overlooked but offers excellent diving on pristine coral from any location on its perimeter.
Abu Nuhas: Also known as the ‘Ships Graveyard’, this reef is dangerously positioned close to the busy shipping lanes of the Gulf of Suez. This reef has claimed more ships than any other in the area. On the north side are four wrecks laying on a sandy seafloor at the bottom of a steep sloping reef layered with table corals. On the south side is a safe anchorage for liveaboards and two ergs, known as Yellow Fish Reef.
Ras Mohamed Reef: This is a world renowned dive site, situated at the tip of the Sinai. Two small ergs are joined by a vertical wall dropping into the abyss. At Shark Reef the current allows you to drift along the wall, rich with colorful corals. Moving towards Yolanda Reef you reach a plateau scattered with small ergs and coral outcrops. Continuing around the reef you will come upon the scattered remains of the wreck ‘Yolanda’ complete with its cargo of toilets and baths. The whole of this area is big fish territory so keep an eye on the blue!
Jackson Reef – Tiran: This is the most northerly reef and on its northern edge lays the wreck of a freighter serving as a stark warning to ships in the narrow straights. Dives are usually conducted from the moorings on the south side which is sheltered from the main swell and currents. Moving northwards you will come across a forest of spectacular Gorgonia fan coral at about 20 to 30 meter as well as many different kinds of reef fish. This site can also be done as a drift dive heading from the mooring towards the East with the reef on the left where it is mostly wall diving with excellent corals.
Woodhouse Reef – Tiran: This is the longest reef of the four in the Strait of Tiran. Home to reef sharks and eagle rays, it is dived as a drift dive usually from South to North. Jumping at the southern part of the reef is a wall to about 30m covered with coral from the surface all the way down. There is a canyon going along the reef at about 25m which spreads out into a coral garden with sand alleys.
Thomas Reef – Tiran: This is the smallest reef in the Strait and diving here is governed by the weather as there are extremely strong currents. The ends are vertical walls with a large plateau at about 25m on the south-eastern side. This plateau often has sleeping sharks on the sand patches and the colorful coral has a fence of Gorgonia fans at the end.
Gordon Reef – Tiran: This is the most southerly reef of the four and has a different topography from the others offering both a shallow plateau area and drop offs. A huge variety of reef fish and big schools of grouper can be seen here and on the sandy bottom at 4 to 5 meter there is an eel garden area along with coral encrusted drums. The top of the reef, with its lighthouse, is also home to the wreck Lovilla which sits almost parallel to the wreck on Jackson Reef.
Laguna Reef – Tiran: Home to the wrecks Kormoran and Million Hope. Both wrecks are located north of Laguna Reef and so you need good weather to dive them as they are very exposed.
All dives sites are subject to weather conditions and the final route taken is at the absolute discretion of the captain and dive guides.
Start and end in Hurghada; this tour visits reefs between Hurghada and Tiran.

Route Description - North & Safaga
North and Safaga itinerary allows experienced divers to soak up some of the most notorious wrecks and reef the Red Sea has to offer as well as pristine reefs of Safaga (Panorama Reef, Abu Kafan, Salem Express).
The Rosalie Moller is considered one of the most beautiful wrecks in the northern Red Sea and is located on the west side of the Gubal Island. It convinces by the incredible wealth of small swarm fish. Add to this the diffuse atmosphere, as well as the almost perfect state of the former coal transport, which stands parked on the seabed. Because of the depth, the wreck is unsuitable for beginners. Strong currents are rather rare on the wreck.
Abu Nuhas, also known as the "Ship Cemetery". Who has not heard of the 4 wrecks of Abu Nuhas? This reef has more ships than any other in the area. On the north side of Abu Nuhas, the four wrecks lie on a sandy seabed. Giannis D, SS Carnatic, Chrisoula K and Kimono M. On the south side there is a safe mooring for liveaboard ships.
The mystical SS Thistlegorm is a must for every Red Sea diver. It is a treat for wreck friends, not least because of their spectacular cargo. It also offers a variety of fish. Schools of barracudas or big tunas and snappers are not uncommon here. As an artificial reef, it also attracts countless coral fish. Worth seeing is the stern with its cannons, the midships and fore ship, the bow and the cargo, as well as the vehicles, the two locomotives, the tender and the water car. The currents at the wreck are moderate, sometimes strong. The view is generally moderate and often many boats are on site. The best time to dive is the early morning hours.
Panorama Reef is also known as "Abu Alama", which means "Father of the Mast". This is an allusion to the concrete pillar that once marked the northern end of the reef and was replaced by a modern beacon. One day at the Panorama Reef you should spend with calm sea to explore the north and the south of the reef. It is only possible to dive the north side in a calm sea. But then the Red Sea shows itself from one of its most beautiful sides. First, the diver glides over a plateau, which drops to about 22 meters and is covered with colorful coral. After that comes a steep drop, which leads to 40 meters and even deeper. Here you will meet black corals next to huge gorgon fans and oversized soft corals. Overhangs, Columns and caves are waiting for the diver. The flora and fauna here is particularly lush and reef sharks patrol at regular intervals. Turtles, stingrays and several large shoaling fish, but also loners like the Napoleon, can be found at this fantastic dive site. The south of the reef can be dived in almost every weather condition. Again, the reef falls off in stages and offers everything that the Red Sea has to offer in terms of flora and fauna. In the upper shallower area, it pays off to spend several dives. The south plateau starts at 20m and ends at a depth of about 40m, which then drops steeply into the depth. On the southeast corner grow between 22m and 30m large Gorgonienfächer. Perfect for safety stop is the large, between 3m and 15m located anemone field at the southwestern corner of the main reef. Again and again there is something new to discover and, above all, in a wealth that one rarely encounters. Moray eels wind around coral rocks and millions of glassfish swarm around larger coral blocks and cave entrances. If you are too far away from the reef, there are often very strong currents that pull you into the open water.
Almost at the southern tip of the Sinai are located in Ras Mo?amed National Park at the exit of Hidden Bay (Hidden Bay) two large and a small free standing reef. The more northern of the two large reefs is the Shark reef, the southern the Jolanda reef. North of the Shark reef is a coral group called Anemone City. West of Jolanda Reef is another much smaller reef, simply called Satellite Reef, Satellite Reef. The reef roofs are located about half a meter below the water surface.
