Since the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869, vast numbers of ships have used this passage, as the main route from Europe to Asia. The proximity of Shaab Abu Nuhas to the shipping lanes, and also its exposed northerly aspect, has meant that this reef has claimed more ships than any other in the Red Sea.
This wreck graveyard is situated 3 hours north of Hurghada with at least four complete wrecks lie in Shaab Abu Nuhas which are the Giannis D, the Carnatic, the Chrisoula K, and Kimon M. Each of those main wrecks along with other adrift ones has a story to tell about its own drowning with some more dramatic than others. While each has something unique and special about them, all share a stunning underwater beauty that should not be missed by any diver bound for the Red Sea. We are glad to serve our guests with this particular trip of scuba diving in Hurghada upon request.
