Dive Sites


THE UMBRIA & WINGATE REEF


The Italian cargo ship sunk on June 9, 1940, the day before Italy went to war. She was headed to East Africa carrying over 300.000 bombs and other war supplies for Italian troops. The reason for her unfortunate fate is a mystery, some believe she was scuttled by her captain for fear that she would fall into the hands of the British. Others maintain that she was under threat from a German submarine. Today she lies on her port side in 35 - 40m.

SANGANEB


The coral reef surrounding the site of the famous British-built lighthouse at Sanganeb has everything a diver could wish for. Rising from depths of 800m, the outer drop-offs boast caves and gullies, and one of the richest displays of soft coral in the Red Sea. In the depths, hammerheads sweep back and forth awaiting a photo opportunity.

SHAAB RUMI


1963 Jacques Cousteau mounted an expedition to Shaab Rumi to study Red Sea coral life. Divers are allowed to dive the remains of the team's underwater base, the Precontinent II shelf. Marine life is scarce but the metal remains of the equipment shed and flying saucer-like structure, which are now delicately encrusted, are well worth a visit.

JUMNA


Jumna is a reef, corals here are overshadowed by hundreds of hammerhead swarms. The swarms are sometimes close together and very unusual it is to be curious for hammerhead sharks. Some swimming straight at you breaking off only a couple of meters from a collision.
