Abu Nuhas Shipwreck / Gota Abu Ramada Dive Sites
This diving area, just north of Shadwan Island, is a fantastic site to submerge into the sea with five shipwrecks to explore. The main attraction is the wreck of the Carnatic, a UK cargo ship sunk in 1869, which is still in incredibly good condition with its skeletal remains home to flourishing coral and abundant fish life. The Greek ship Chrisoula K(sunk in 1981) and the German Kimon M (sunk in 1978) are two more popular wreck dives in this area with plenty of opportunities to spot lionfish, triggerfish, and pipefish among the wreckage. Location: 65 kilometers southeast of Hurghada
Gota Abu Ramada Dive Site
Known also as “The Aquarium,” Gota Abu Ramada is a wall dive site with huge amounts of marine life. One of the most popular dive sites near Hurghada, it is used by many dive operators as a try-dive site for novice divers, but more advanced and experienced divers will also enjoy the huge variety of sea life. Triggerfish, lionfish, and clownfish are always whizzing through the ethereal blue waters here, and many divers also manage to glimpse the resident eagle rays.
