After the Thitlegorm, this is the most famous ship wreck in the Egyptian Red Sea. It was an English steam ship which was carrying spices, timber and gold from India. At the 25th of April 1876 the ship sank when it struck a reef.

She lies upside-down at a depth of about 20 meters, fully covered in coral. Broken in two, creating an opening at the hull, she provides excellent views and possibilities to enter its large interiors. There is a permanent buoy linked by a line to Dunraven's stern. In the northern parts of the wreck lies the large propeller and the engine while the reef lies to the west. Although archeologists took all artifacts out of the ship in the 80s, she is still a beautiful dive, with enough marine life. Some of the interests are schools of glassfish, huge wrasses and dolphins.

Don't forget to visit the beautiful nearby reef, which proved to be fatal to the ship. There you will find impressive brain coral, lionfish and flathead scorpion fish. Enjoy this fantastic ship wreck.
