In the north of the Red Sea, we will visit some of the world-famous wrecks and enjoy the unbelievable play of colors inside in combination with great, colorful schools of fish and reefs.
Tillis was built in 2017 and totally renovated in the dry deck in winter 2019/2020.
The 35 meter long and 8-meter wide boat has room for 26 divers. The 10 cabins with 2 single beds each and the 3 suites with double beds each have their own bathroom, air conditioning and storage space.
In the cosy, spacious restaurant area you can enjoy a fine buffet 3 times a day. In the bar on the upper deck, you can get snacks and soft drinks 24 hours a day. On the upper and sun deck, you will find many seats, both shaded and for sun worshippers. So there is nothing to stop you from relaxing between dives.
On the diving platform, every diver has his own box and enough space for his own equipment. For more distant dive sites 2 Zodiacs are available.
The Thistlegorm was sunk on the 6th of October 1941 by German Henkel 111 bomber while anchoring. It rests now upright in max. 30 meter depth which makes it an easy accessible wreck. The big amount of schooling fish and it's cargo of motorcycle, trucks, riffles, ammunition and a lot more does not only make it to an underwater museum but also one of the best wreck dives in the world, every diver should have done in his life.
The Carnatic was a sail and engine steamer on the route between Suez and India. It struck Saab Abu Nuhas on the 12th of September 1969 and sunk the next day. Now it is resting in a maximum depth of 27 meters on its port side. Due to a long time underwater, the 90-meter-long Carnatic, which broke in two parts when sinking, is now completely overgrown with hard and soft corals and offers shelter to a lot of different marine life. This unique wreck offers you easy penetration possibilities and you can still find broken wine bottles in the bow section.
The Kimon M. was build 1952 in Hamburg as the Brunsbüttel and changed owners (and names) several times before running aground on Shaab Abu Nuhas in 1978. 4.500 tons lentils was the only cargo of the 106-meter-long vessel. Today the wreck lies on its starboard side in a depth between 12 and 30 meters. Because of the current and surge, only the stern is in good condition and no penetration should be done due to the instability of the wreck. Highlights are the propeller in 30-meter depth, the glassfish in the stern section and a school of batfish passing by regular.
The Chrisoula K. (aka Tiles Wreck) was built 1954 in Germany as Dora Oldendorf. 1979 she was sold and given the name Chrisoula K. The 98-meter-long ship ran aground Shaab Abu Nuhas on the 31. of August in 1981 and sits now upright in a depth between 25 meter (stern) and 1 meter (bow). Due to its depth and no current, the wreck is suitable for all levels of diver. It also offers some easy penetration, where you will see a lot of floor tiles Made in Italy but also more interesting things like a full equipped workshop and the ships galley.
Beautiful reef in the North with its famous spots like Shark and Yolanda Reef, Anemone City and Jackfish Alley
