SS TTHISTLEGORM

Beschreibung:
  • Die SS Thistlegorm ist ein Schiffswrack aus dem Zweiten Weltkrieg im Norden des Roten Meeres in der Straße von Gubal. Es ist ein ehemaliges 128 m langes britisches Transportschiff, das 1941 nach einem deutschen Luftangriff versenkt wurde. Die SS Thistlegorm wurde in Sunderland in Großbritannien gebaut. Sie wurde während des Zweiten Weltkriegs zum Transport verschiedener Kriegsgüter eingesetzt und war mit einer Waffe bewaffnet. Vor ihrer letzten Reise unternahm sie drei Reisen nach Amerika, Argentinien und auf die Niederländischen Antillen. Am 6. Oktober 1941 wurde sie von zwei Bomben getroffen und sank schnell und tötete 9. 1952 entdeckte Jacque-Yves Cousteau das Wrack der SS Thistlegorm wieder, nachdem er den Informationen der Fischer gefolgt war. 1956 drehte National Geographic eine erste Dokumentation über dieses Wrack. Das Wrack der SS Thistlegorm liegt jetzt in 30 m Wassertiefe. Der tiefste Punkt ist die Stütze, etwa 32 m tief und der flachste Teil ist nur 16 m tief. Die Strömung kann an dieser Stelle manchmal ziemlich stark sein und den Tauchgang ziemlich herausfordernd machen. Die Sicht ist oft gut, kann aber je nach Strömung und Wetterlage durch den Schlick im Wasser eingeschränkt sein. Dieser Tauchgang ist wegen der Tiefe unter 20 m PADI Advanced Open Water und CMAS 2* vorbehalten
  • Was am Wrack der SS Thistlegorm wirklich großartig ist, sind die Artefakte, die Sie unter Wasser sehen können. Hier ruht noch immer die gesamte Fracht, die für die britische Armee von Montgomery bestimmt war. Jeeps, Lastwagen, Motorräder, Generatoren, Kisten mit Gewehren, Flugzeugflügel und -motoren, Klappbetten und sogar Wannen für Waschpersonal, und das ist noch nicht alles. Das Meeresleben rund um das Wrack ist wirklich großartig und Sie können Fledermausfische, eine ansässige Schildkröte, Barrakudas, treffen

DUNRAVEN

Description:
  • Dunraven was launched in December 1873 . At the Mitchell & K shipyard in Newcastle, England. It was recorded in the register as an "iron screw steam vessel" and was a sailing-steam brigantine.Dunraven developed a speed of up to 8 knots. The ship is 79.6 m long and 9.8 m wide.In March 1876, on her voyage up the Suez from India to the UK, she ran on to the reef and stuck fast off Shaab Mahmoud, south of Sharm El Sheikh. The crew worked frantically for 14 hours to dislodge her but she capsized and sank to the seabed at 30m with her cargo of cotton and wool. The crew was eventually rescued by local fishermen.The wreck was only rediscovered in 1979. Dunraven lies keel up on a vast sandy plateau with rare corals. The bow of the ship rests against the reef at a depth of 17 meters and this depth is the minimum for this dive. The stern lies at a depth of 29 meters towards the sea.
  • The cavernous hull of the Dunraven is adorned with soft corals and black corals and is full of schooling goatfish and glassfish, squirrelfish and a few groupers and moray eels. The exterior of the Dunraven's hull is now covered in hard corals, with sea whips and gorgonians hanging from the vertical sections. It's a great place to spot nudibranchs, crocodilefish, scorpionfish and colorful clouds of fairy basslets.

    MILLION HOPE

    Description:
    • The cargo ship was launched in Japan in 1972 under the name Ryusei Maru. The vessel was additionally equipped to transport cars. It was a huge ship: displacement 26181, waterline length 174.6 m with a width of 24.8 m. During its history, the ship changed several owners until, in 1996, it was acquired by the Cyprus Company Aksonas Shipping Co Ltd for 1.36 million pounds. At that moment, the vessel received its last name Million Hope and was immediately insured for 4.1 million pounds. Six weeks after the purchase, a shipwreck occurred, as a result of which the ship could not be restored. On June 19, 1996, Million Hope left the port of Aqaba for Taiwan with 26,000 tons of potash and phosphates on board. In poor visibility conditions, the vessel ran into a coastal reef near the Nabk area three miles north of Sharm El Sheikh.After 10 years, a Chinese company attempted to cut the REC into scrap metal. As a result of this operation, Million Hope lost its deck superstructure and a huge propeller. The bow of the vessel was separated from the hull and collapsed on its side. In addition, a massive crawler crane appeared on the bottom 20 meters from the stern of the vessel. The openwork boom of the crane is now overgrown with soft corals and serves as a home for a colony of glass fish and numerous winglets.
    • Part of the ship's superstructures rise above the water surface. The ship is standing on an even keel with some roll to port. That is, it is tilted away from the reef. The starboard side rests on a reef, and the keel lies on the bottom at a depth of 19-24 m. The deck is located below the surface of the water. All holds are open. The entire cargo is selected from them. Million Hope is the largest rack on the Red Sea. Diving on it will leave you an indelible impression. Unfortunately, constant strong surf is a common phenomenon in this part of the Strait of Tiran. Waves rolling on the deck of the vessel create a suction effect. With the wave, the water rushes into the open hatches, and when the wave rolls back, the water is thrown out of them. A certain amount of caution is required here, especially at low tide.

    • Location: 28° 03' 42" N, 34° 26' 40"E
    • Depth: 52-54m
    • Visibility: 20 - 25m

    CANYON

    Description:
    • The Canyon is Dahab’s second most popular dive site, after the Blue Hole. It is a relatively accessible dive site, typically conducted from the shore and suitable to divers of various levels. The itinerary starts on a colourful shallow garden populated with many unique and elusive creatures, such as seahorses and ghost pipefish. The dive site’s main attraction is the Canyon itself and the Fish Tank, a gorgeous geological formation accessible even to the divers without specific cave-diving training. Dahab’s Canyon offers stunning plays of light and shapes, a distinctive fauna, and a varied diving environment suitable to most divers.
    • Look for some action close to the corners that are populated by spotted stingrays, turtles, and the occasional tiger shark. Head to the north side and to Ras Goma to meet the legendary colony of hammerhead sharks, but be cautious: the current can be unpredictably strong.
