DAY 7 : Dive Giftun & Abu Ramada - Hurghada (Disembarkation).

Best dived in the quiet of the early morning when you are most likely to see hammerheads. This is a magical reef in deep blue water with countless rewards for divers and underwater photographers.
Along the southern plateau lies the most famous coral phenomenon: the Arch and face of the Pharaoh. Here large schools of surgeon fish dwell in the shadows of the arch as you drift through, while big pelagics swim in and around the deep-water corals. As you slowly ascend to your stops, observe the large silvertips along the plateau.
The northern plateau is the perfect place to see hammerheads Ð usually in only 25m of water! As you drift back along the wall, you are bound to see a turtle, or another large silvertip speeding after its prey, while the more timid creatures take refuge in the crevices of the reef itself.

This island offers some spectacular coral diving, with the most colourful soft corals and delicate gorgonian forests at around 30m. As you turn your head away from the drop-off, you are bound to see sharks gliding into the deep. The brothers attract several species of sharks, including hammer-heads, silver tips, oceanic whitetips and even tiger sharks.

A huge Freighter lies on the northern plateaux of Big Brother with the stern wedged in to the island at a depth of 80m. This wreck is adorned with spectacular soft coral dancing in strong currents. This dive is only for the experienced. The Aida II is a supply ship that hit the reef circa 1957. The stern section only remains and lies between 30 to 70 m. its structure is heavily colonised with soft and hard coral encrustation. This makes an interesting dive not only for the wreck but also the large pelagic fish and schools of barracuda that glide around it.

Rocky Island
The sea to the east of Rocky plummets to over 1000m, where large pelagic fish and sharks abound. Hammerheads lurk at around 60m, sometimes shooting for the surface to give divers a mental jolt before disappearing into the deep. Diving here is about finding a good position, then lying in wait. Oceanic whitetips are a common sight as they cruise the waters of this exposed corner along with large shoals, of barracuda, tuna and jacks. Deep canyons chiselled into the drop-offs are covered in some of the most beautiful gorgonians and soft corals seen anywhere in the Red Sea.

This P&O passenger and mail ship is shrouded in mystery. She was sunk in 1869 and only a fraction of the gold she was carrying has been recovered. The quality of light and abundance of sponge and table corals make her a favourite with underwater photographers.
This wreck is a favourite with divers from all over the world, although some consider her a war grave. The Thistlegorm was a World War 2 army cargo ship heading to supply the British 8th Army in North Africa. She was packed to the gills with machinery and ammunition when a German bomber sank her on 6 October 1941.

Translated from Arabic, Nuhas means brass - a name given to the reef by local fishermen after it claimed a ship carrying a cargo of brass.

Abington Reef

Marked by a lighthouse this reef only just breaks the surface. The reef is rectangular with strong currents to be found.
If you like turtles then Abington reef is the place where you are likely to see these inquisitive creatures. They are truly delightful and seem to always enjoy having their photograph taken!
The reef is also well known to see schooling hammerhead sharks

Angarosh Reef

Angarosh means 'Mother of Sharks' and is appropriately named because of the number of sharks to be found in this area. Angarosh has two plateaus, the shallower plateau going down to 25m and another plateau going down to 45m. Angarosh is a superb dive site to see and take pictures of sharks as they swim effortlessly around you , Also schooling of Barracuda may be seen here but the site is most famous for its Manta Ray.

Shaab Rumi

Some 25 miles North East from Port Sudan the reef here has a plateau at 9metres and a steep drop-off.
This is where Jacques Cousteau and his team mounted an underwater base in order to study the effects of long term underwater stays of a diver once he was fully saturated with all the gases in his body. Hence the underwater expedition called 'Precontinent II' was set up in 1963.
The incredible outcome of this expedition was that once fully saturated, the diver could conceivably stay down forever given enough air to breath but what is truly incredible is that this experiment took place in 1963, by scientists who obviously had knowledge well beyond their years.
The remains of his expedition are still at this site and it is well worth a dive to take a look at the equipment which was left behind.
South of Sha'ab Rumi is a plateau which is about 23m deep. Here you will find numerous sharks, barracudas, jack fish, humphead parrot fish and almost anything else that you can imagine!
Sha'ab Rumi is a 'must' for all visitors!
Sanganeb is found about one and a half hours north of the "Umbria". This reef rises from 800m depth to the surface.

The Sanganeb coral reef is truly a beautiful place to dive or snorkel. The reef itself, has one of the richest coral displays in the Red Sea. The British built lighthouse is situated on the reef and close by there are caves and gullies for the avid diver to visit. There are two Sudanese men who take it in turns to live in the lighthouse (they rotate every 4/5 weeks) and love to welcome visitors. You can climb to the top of the lighthouse and look out over the coral reef which is crystal clear and an incredible sight to see.

Every person who has climbed the lighthouse comes back with a different number of stairs that they have climbed - they never seem to agree on the number of stairs that are in the lighthouse

You do not have to dive deeply to see the rich sea life and this is why Sanganeb is also great for snorkelling.

The South plateau on Sanganeb is a fabulous dive and soft and hard corals with schooling Jack, Barracuda, Tuna and Snapper are abundant. Grey reef sharks cruise close by you with the occasional White Tip reef shark swimming past. There are sometimes Hammerheads, Silky and Oceanic White Tips here as well as occasional Manta rays.



The North plateau is an outstanding dive. This is a deep dive with a lower plateau at 45m where schooling Hammerheads are common. It is normal to see Grey Reef Sharks, Silvertips and White tips here. Where the boat anchors inside the lagoon there is often a huge pod of dolphins and it is normal to snorkel amongst them

SS Thistlegorm

Hurghada, Red Sea

The Thistlegorm was discovered in 1956 by Jacques Cousteau and is probably the most famous wreck in the world. It sank in 1941 when it was hit by a German bomb that blew a hole in the port side, igniting tank ammunition that was in the hold. The explosion ripped the roof of the ship backwards, rather like opening a tin of sardines.
The stern section of the wreck lies almost horizontal to the sea bed; the remainder of the wreck is nearly upright. Inside the wreckage, tyres, tanks, motorbikes, Bedford trucks, waders and Wellington boots can be seen. Penetration is possible around the bridge and blast area. The large prop is still in position and the guns on the stern are in excellent condition.
Artillery litters the blast area. A bath tub can be seen towards the bow and a toilet near the stern. The sea life is impressive with possibility of seeing tuna overhead the resident turtle. Expect this to be very busy, especially once the day boats have reached it; it is likely to be chaos both on the surface and under the water.

Rosalie Moeller

Hurghada, Red Sea

Rosalie Moller sank in the 1940's. She was hit by a bomb. Penetration is accessible as the cracks are huge, but it is not necessary as the significant parts of the wreck are visible from the outside.
The prop and rudder are still in good condition. The deck is in good condition and very clean. The sea life is amazing, with glassfish that can be seen by the deck and reef sharks that can be spotted.

Salem Express

Hurghada, Red Sea

A Ferry carrying pilgrims returning from Mecca, sank in 1991 after hitting the reef at night. 600 victims perished in one of the greatest marine tragedies of all time. Divers are asked to dive the wreck considerately with respect for the great loss of life and penetration of the wreck is forbidden.
The propellers make an impressive sight and the covering of hard corals now colonising the wreck show the power of the ocean to make new life out of this tragedy. Fish life is now abundant and the funnels of the wreck with large "S" and the name on the bow are clearly visible. The site is reasonably sheltered and is not exposed to strong current and can be dived at all levels from 12m to 30m.

Giannis D

Hurghada, Red Sea

This Greek freighter hit the reef in April 1983 and over the course of two weeks slowly broke into two parts and sank. She is the most dived wreck in the area, laying in 24 metres and leaning to port with a fully intact stern section and an impressive engine room packed with glass fish.

The bow is very interesting too but is a long swim out. She is a great wreck for penetration but beware of disorientation due to the angle at which she lays. Be wary of the many lion fish and scorpion fish that call this wreck home and watch out for the strong surges in and around the wreck in rough weather.

Carnatic

Hurghada, Red Sea

The Carnatic is a British P & O steamer which struck the reef in 1869 and sank the next day as the weather worsened. She was a passenger and mail ship and is sometimes known as the ‘wine’ wreck for the numerous bottles once found in the holds; sadly not many now remain to be seen. Rumour has it that she sank with forty thousand pounds sterling of gold bullion, much of which was never recovered. The wreck lays in 29m and now the whole hull is draped in multicoloured soft corals and the inner areas are full of glass fish complete with red mouthed grouper sentinel. One davit supports a beautiful table coral. The wreck is now home to large grouper, octopus and morays and jacks and tuna cruise overhead.

Angarosh Reef

Port Sudan, Sudan

Angarosh means 'Mother of Sharks' and is appropriately named because of the number of sharks to be found in this area. Angarosh has two plateaus, the shallower plateau going down to 25m and another plateau going down to 45m. Angarosh is a superb dive site to see and take pictures of sharks as they swim effortlessly around you , Also schooling of Barracuda may be seen here but the site is most famous for its Manta Ray.

Umbria

Port Sudan, Sudan

Since Port Sudan used to be one of the most important ports in the world, there are numerous exciting wrecks waiting to be discovered. One of them is Umbria, a large Italian vessel that lies on the sea bottom about 1 ½km from Port Sudan. She lies at 25m at about a 45-degree angle and in low tide the tips of her two masts even peek out of the water for an easy dive. About 18 tons of ammunition and explosives lie still in her cargo holdings along with half a million of Maria Teresa coins. Originally she was on her way to Eritrea with her cargo but she happened to set anchor in Sudan when Italy proclaimed war with the country. So the Sudanese occupied the boat and they were about to order the Italians off Umbria when they got the news that she was sinking. It is exciting to discover all the rooms and cargo spaces, some of which have remained completely intact like the bakery and the engine room. Fiat Lagunas, bottled wine and ammunition are lined up in the cargo hulls. Lots of snapper fish and sea lilies found home under the giant rudder by the stern. Lots of tiny comical cleaning crabs live near the collapsed funnel on one of the gangways which start to clean our hands if we put them on the bridge. Around the wreck we can run into barracudas, butterflyfish, spiny fish and schools of tiny red fish. On the right side of the boat corals bloom like bunches of rosehip bushes.
