Gallery: Thistlegorm wreck, 70 years on
It’s seventy years since the dramatic sinking of the Red Sea’s most famous wreck, SS Thistlegorm, on 6 October 1941 in the Gulf of Suez. Diving Thistlegorm wreck today is still an unforgettable experience. Looming up from the sea bed, the coral-encrusted wreck attracts huge schools of tuna and jacks, and houses resident glassfish, crocodilefish and nudibranchs. Its incredible cargo lies exactly as it was when the ship sank seven decades ago: as you dive through the cargo holds, marvel at the rifles, aeroplane wings, Jeeps, Bedford trucks and BSA motorbikes with still-inflated tyres. Enjoy our Thistlegorm wreck diving video and photogallery, or even better, join us to experience this amazing wreck dive for yourself!
Autumn boost to Camel Eco Tribe activities
Sharm’s reefs are now a better place for diving! Throughout September our guests and staff have actively participated in the Debris Month of Action and freed our beautiful Red Sea from 195 kg of debris. The Debris Month of Action is a regular eco-campaign promoted by Project AWARE which combines underwater cleanups with critical data collection. To make the clean-up a true Camel experience, we rewarded our volunteers with a free drink at Camel Bar, during our Tuesday Divers’ Night. It’s with the same enthusiasm that we’re now approaching the European Shark Week, from 15-23 November. Stay tuned for updates!
Camel Dive Club Facebook Page rocks!
Camel earned a big achievement last week when we gained our 1400th fan on our Camel Dive Club, Sharm El Sheikh Facebook page. We wanted to take a moment from your busy day to say THANK YOU for becoming a fan of our Facebook Fan page and helping us reach this goal in such a short time. Our fans literally come from all over the world (England, Ireland, Scotland, France, Germany, Italy, Brasil, Australia, Norway, Turkey, Poland, Denmark, Netherland, Portugal, Belgium, Spain) and they are 60% men, which we found odd because our divers are almost equally divided between men and women. Come on! Tell your female friends to join us on Facebook! Not a fan yet? Check us out now!
