Abu Ghusun (Hamada Wreck)

Tour Details

The Abu Ghusun Hamada wreck dive is a popular destination for scuba divers, located off the coast of Abu Ghusun in the Wadi El Gemal National Park, 70 km south of Marsa Alam. The wreck is the remains of the bulk carrier freighter Hamada, which ran aground and sank in heavy seas on June 29, 1993. The ship was sailing from Jeddah to Suez with a cargo of plastic granulate on board. Today, the remains of the cargo can still be found on the beach at Abu Ghusun.

The Hamada was 65.1 meters long and 11.1 meters wide and was built in 1965 by John Lewis & Sons shipyard in Aberdeen. The ship went through several owners and name changes before finally being sold to Phemios Shipping Co. in Valletta, Malta. The ship lies broken in two parts on the reef off Abu Ghusun at a depth between 10 and 18 meters. It is moderately overgrown and accessible to divers, with some of the interiors also accessible.

excellent diving center with truly professional instructors who listen to us, dives with turtles, moray eels swimming in open water, in a cave and especially snorkelling with dolphins, breathtaking intact coral reefs. we highly recommend this dive center and we will definitely come back
What a great place to learn diving! This school has a beautiful house reef and a super patient and understanding dive instructor. The school takes time to build up routines by repetition what helps to feel save. I had a lot of fun while learning and experiencing the world underwater.
Awesome dive center! Organising pick up and transfer back! Everyone super engaged! Dive equipment in good condition! Divemasters are great! Would recommend 10/10! :)
2 weeks diving with them and this place is INCREDIBLE!!! Very knowledgeable, professional, and punctual. They gave better prices than anyone in the area and the level of instruction was fantastic. Rami was my same instructor the whole time and the owners, Moodi and Montana, took care to set me up with everything I needed from rides, food, hotels, and even took me out to dinner with Monica (resident Polish Instructor!) Moodi even gave me a ride back to Cairo. I can not recommend this place enough, whether it be Open-Water, Rescue, Elphinstone, or general day-dives. I will be coming back and bringing family. MESA-MESA HABIBIES!!!
Initially we did an intro dive with Deep South Divers and decided to pursue an open water certification because we felt very comfortable with the staff. They are knowledgeable, friendly and go beyond to give you the confidence needed as a beginner. They were also very generous by lending us their snorkeling gear. Im really happy we decided to get our certification with them.
I know Mohamed Mustafa for almost ten years now. He educated me, my daughters and my wife. He is a talented teacher and perfect dive instructor. I am so much looking forward to the next dives with him in October. :)
