Thistlegorm Thistlegorm 30.63

The world famous wreck SS Thistlegorm was sunk in 1941 in the Gulf of Suez. She was loaded with a cargo of armoured Bren-Gun carriers, BSA motorcycles, jeeps, trucks, rolling stock, aeroplane parts, stacks of rifles, radio equipment, munitions, and a plentiful supply of Wellington boots. The Thistlegorm is a heaven for wreck enthusiasts, but is also one of the most underrated fish dives in the area, attracting schooling Barracuda and providing a hunting ground for giant Tuna and Snapper.

Ras Mohammed Marine Park Ras mohammed 28.09
Straits of Tiran straits if tiran 9.24

The Straits of Tiran offer spectacular diving. The Straits extend from Ras Ghamila on the mainland, to Jackson Reef. They are most famous for 4 offshore reefs named after the 19th Century British cartographers Gordon, Thomas, Woodhouse and Jackson. Water funneling through the Straits can cause strong currents, leading to exciting drift dives. A huge variety of coral and marine life thrive in the nutrient-rich water.

Ras Ghamila Ras Ghamila Dive Site 3.42

Ras Ghamila is a long plateau covered with table corals and soft corals. This is one of the most beautiful dives in Sharm El Sheikh. This dive is usually done as an optional third dive after two morning dives in the Straits of Tiran. Under the table corals divers may see Crocodile Fish, Blue Spotted Sting Rays and Groupers hiding. Strong currents are often present, making drift dives in this area very exciting! At the corner of the dive site schools of black Snappers are quite common. Expect to see Cornet Fish stalking their prey by hiding behind larger fish.
