Are you a wreck enthusiast? Then this safari is for you!

It is accessible to any diver with an Open Water Diver certificate or CMAS *. You will discover shipwrecks that are more than a century old, warships, including the legendary wreck of the SS Thistlegorm. And all these wrecks lie between 10 and 30 meters below the surface. You will dive the wonderful Ras Muhammad National Park (480 km2 of sea and desert). This park is home to an extravagant fauna and has one of the most beautiful coral ecosystems on the planet with more than 150 different coral species. Stretching over 80 km2, Tiran Island is the biggest island located at the entrance of the Tiran strait that separates the Red Sea from the gulf of Aqaba. This island was claimed by Saudi Arabia under an agreement meant to mark out the maritime borders in 2016 but the agreement was broken by the Egyptian administrative court. You can still enjoy diving its amazing drop-offs and canyons colonised by soft corals. Tiran Island is about 10km off Sharm El Sheikh beach resort.
