Dunraven

 The Dunraven was a special breed of British cargo vessel because she was capable of being powered by either sail or steam. This nearly 80m long ship was officially launched in December 1873 and followed a route between England and India. It was a general cargo, which included timber and steel to fuel India’s heavy industrial ambitions. On April 6, 1876, the Dunraven carried a heavy load from Liverpool to Bombay. She crossed the Indian Ocean, entered the Red Sea and stopped at Aden for a supply of coal. She then continued northward, apparently headed for the Suez Canal.

More About Dunraven

However, on the dawn of April 25, 1876 the Dunraven hit a huge rock while on its way to the Suez Canal. To this day, this shipwreck lies near the southernmost tip of Egypt’s Sinai peninsula, near the mouth of the Gulf of Suez. A known landmark known as Beacon Rock will make it easier for divers to locate Dunraven. Divers need to be cautious going near The Dunraven as the strong current can be a bit dubious at times. Scuba divers should also prepare to plunge down to 30m underwater as this is where the bottom part of the wreck is located.

A story About Dunraven

The SS Thistlegorm

This is probably the most famous shipwrecks in the Red Sea. Built in June 1940 by Joseph Thompson & Sons of Sunderland, this 126.5 m long steamship was officially launched on the 9th of April 1940. Her final voyage was on October 6, 1941 when German bomber planes sunk her during World War II.

It is a war grave, an underwater museum, and a unique piece of military history all rolled into one which makes it one of the iconic wrecks only found in the Red Sea. It lies in the Straits of Gubal, northern part of the Red Sea.
