This is part of my research for the best dive sites in the world. The thistlegorm shipwreck is known for having everything a shipwreck has to offer. It`s great for exploring inside and covered with marine life on the outside. It was a British merchant navy ship. It sunk in 1941 during world war II. The shipwreck lies west of the Sinai peninsula in the northernmost part of the Red Sea.
Despite the large number of divers crawling around the wreck. The marine life is astonishing, about 1000 fish species, 2000 species of invertebrates and more that 180 coral species. Plus the BSA mortorcycles and trucks from the 1940`s, which still look intact!
This video gives a good image of the thistlegorm shipwreck.
In Egypt my favorite diveshop is easy divers, in El Gouna, they organised the tistlegorm trip when we were there, another great wreck was the Gianni D.
