Salem Express Wreck

Depth: 10m-30m

Type: Wreck 

Wreck Diving in the Red Sea Salem Express.The Salem Express is a modern wreck of a ferry. Bringing pilgrims back from Mecca to the port at Safaga, she sank in minutes in December 1991 taking at least 500 down with her. The ferry took a short cut and hit a reef knocking the bow doors. Underwater, you will see all the trappings of modern travel –  suitcases, game boys,clothes, blankets alongside the marine life which has firmly established the Salem as a reef as well as a wreck. A memorable and significant dive to be treated with great respect.
