Wrecks of Abu Nuhas

Wrecks of Abu Nuhas

The four wrecks of Abu Nuhas - Giannis D, Carnatic, Chrisoula K and Kimon M - are all suitable for recreational diving. At a depth range of 5-30m, their proximity to each other is what makes Abu Nuhas an especially notable wreck diving site. Covered in both soft and hard corals, the wrecks are an underwater dream for the avid photographer. Easy access to the machine rooms and engine room on both the Chrisoula K and Giannas D make it a perfect site for the explorer as well. Abu Nuhas is not only revered for its wonderful wreck diving though, there is also a good chance of encountering dolphins.
