This is one of the best wrecj dive of the Gubal Strait, very close to the Giannis D.
The ship, lying on her port side, sits more or less parallel to the reef, making navigation easy.
With a maximum depth of 25m, it will appeal to most recreational divers and is deemed one of the most fascinating in the Red Sea, not least because the ship's £40,000 of gold wasn’t all salvaged!
The hull is actually broken up into several sections, all of which can be penetrated with the usual caution.
