Werck Thistlegorm, Northern Red Sea

This famous merchant warship sank in 1941 after it was hit by a German bomb, and today it is a world-class dive site and exciting underwater playground and museum for wreck diving enthusiasts to explore at their leisure. Amongst the wreckage you will find all sorts of items – from tyres and motorbikes to Bedford trucks, artillery and even wellington boots. There will always be something new to see here, however many times you dive. Marine life is abundant, and you are likely to come across tuna, jacks, moray eels, turtles, pipefish and all sorts of coral species. A unique piece of military history, the Thistlegorm is one of the greatest wrecks in the Red Sea.
