Diving Thistlegorm from Sharm El Sheikh One of the best wreck dives of the world

Being one of the best wreck dives of the world, the SS Thistlegorm is one of the biggest diving atractions of the Northern Red Sea.

It Attracts divers from all over the world
Penetration of the wreck is very popular, and with the daylight entering from the large holds, it makes it an easy dive to navigate through the internal corridors.

Many types of creatures have made the Thistlegorm their home

Probably the most photographed 4" brass shell ever. Manufactured in 1929.

There is live ammunition all over the blast damaged area.

So much to photograph.

Red Sea Gold fish in abundance, over the railway carriages on the fore decks.
A British casualty of World War 2, the Thistlegorm was heavily laden with ammunition and vehicles, all still in place where they were loaded, and easily accessible for viewing.

Apart from being a time capsule of its era, the Thistlegorm is also a heaven for many fish and marine creatures. It can often be very spectacular when the tuna, jacks and trevallie’s are feeding on shoals of smaller fish. We often get to see the resident Hawksbill Turtle that takes refuge in this massive wreck.
For information on daily trips to SS Thistlegorm, one of the best wreck dives in the world.
