Description

This itinerary is for all divers, yes you will dive almost exclusively on wrecks, but many of these are living reefs with astounding amounts of marine life. However if wrecks are your passion this is definitely for you!

 

You could be diving on wrecks that in some cases have had virtually no other divers visit. Wrecks which have been lost and left for decades and longer. War casualties, marine time disasters and some simply disappeared below the seas. We will give you a full historical briefing on everyone wreck you dive on and will always be on the hunt for new discoveries.

 

The latest of these is the MV Qtmos found in October 2016.

What is more you will have the wrecks to yourself as no other operators venture to the northern areas of the Gulf of Suez.

 

If you have a group of tech qualified divers for deeper wrecks then there are some very special opportunities abound in the Northern Suez not least the HMS Nith lying on her side in 55m of water fully intact and ready to explore.

 

For those interested in the marine life, the Gulf of Suez is an absolute treasure of discoveries, gone are the sea of orange Anthias replaced with their purple and yellow cousins. No more searching endlessly for Nudibranchs instead the multitude of sightings in these waters is simply outstanding. The large seasonal temperature swings in the gulf waters give raise to a completely different eco-system to that which is found everywhere else in the Red Sea. It’s a voyage of discovery!
