The diving holidays in El Gouna Dive Resort offers a mix of reef and wreck. Most of the Northern Hurghada dive sites like Sha’ab El Erg, Uum Gamar and Careless can be reached as well as great dive destinations such as the four wrecks of Abu Nuhas and on a special trip the famous Thistlegorm wreck and its sister-ship, the Rosalie Moller.
