ABU NUHAS WRECK

About 3 to 4 hours of sailing separate Hurghada from the aquatic graveyard at Abu Nuhas. This submerged reef has claimed more vessels than any other in the Red Sea. Numerous wrecks lie here and the area is littered with wreckage from other ships.

The opening of the Suez canal in 1869 established the Red Sea as the most important stretch of water near Egypt. The installation of lighthouses and beacons did not keep up with the increase of the shipping activity, hence the excellent wreck diving found here.

EL MINA WRECK

El Mina was bombed by the Israelis in 1969 in Hurghada bay, but still has a sister ship afloat nearby which is worth looking at to compare to what you are about to dive. The wreck now lies on its side and there are a lot of small holes to peer into and penetration is possible, although tight, through a significant amount of the wreck. Sea urchins are abundant on the wreck and a very large moray was found living in one of the holes. An interesting dive with
