The world famous wreck SS Thistlegorm was sunk in 1941 in the area of Sha’ab Ali in the Gulf of Suez. She was packed to the gunwales with a cargo of supplies destined for the British fifth army based in Alexandria. Armoured Bren-Gun carriers, BSA motorcycles, jeeps, trucks, rolling stock, airplane parts, stacks of rifles, radio equipment, munitions, and a plentiful supply of Wellington boots can all be seen during your dive. The Thistlegorm is heaven for wreck enthusiasts, but is also one of the most underrated fish dives in the area, attracting schooling barracuda and providing a hunting ground for giant tuna and snapper. Our excursions require an early start. After breakfast on board, you will make two dives on the wreck. One dive is an orientation of the wreck and the other is penetration of the holds packed with all the wartime cargo.
