Any dive centre or hotel will be able to schedule a dive to the shipwreck. The SS Thistlegorm was a British Merchant Navy ship that was bombed by a German in 1941 and lies undisturbed today off the coast of Egypt. Today, it has become a popular dive site, which provides insight into the past as tropical fish and other sea life drift past the twisted metal. You can see motorcycles, trucks, an anti-aircraft gun and other fascinating things as part of the wreckage on your dive.
