Numidia Wreck Hurghada information, tours, prices and online booking
Numidia Wreck located in the Big Brothers Island in Hurghada, Egypt. In fact, Numidia shipwreck found off the northern-most tip of the island. Quite often, however, there is a strong current running straight onto the wreck. This is a dive to set the heart racing and one of the most incredible shipwrecks available to divers. Like the Ada, it also defies all the known laws of gravity. In fact, it lies “up” the reef at an almost vertical angle. After nearly 100 years underwater it is, of course, now an integral part of the reef itself and will never move. At a depth of only 8m the diver will find the Bows well broken. Moreover, they marked by a pair of Railway Engine Wheels originally carried as deck cargo.
From here, the Numidia wreck quickly takes on its original shape and the diver is soon descending to deck level. The first thing that most divers comment on, however, is the absolute color that now adorns this vessel. Hard Corals and Soft Corals colonized this ship in a manner similar to the Ada – making them amongst the most beautiful shipwrecks in the world. The railings, masts, lifeboat davits, windlasses and deck winches are all still in place – having become part of a living Reef of such vibrancy that it is easy to lose sight of the fact that this is a “wreck diving!”.

The wooden decking, of course, gone and, of course, the cargo salvaged. This, however, provides an incredible opportunity to investigate a large ship at whatever depth suits the personal requirement. Forward of the central bridge are two cavernous cargo holds with ventilation hatches along the starboard side. The decks are now a square pattern of steel in between which is the lower half of the forward mast.
Immediately behind No 2 Hold is the raised central “castle”. In fact, it is with its accommodation and what remains of the Bridge. Constructed of wood on a steel floor, all but the basic outer framework has rotted away. We are now at a depth of 50m and the remainder of the ship lies in very deep water. Immediately behind the bridge is the ships funnel which fallen over to one side. Moreover, here several lifeboat davits swung out. In fact, the Engine Room is immediately below. Moreover, the decking is very similar in appearance to which nearer the Bows. Once again, the diver will find the lower half of an equally stout rear mast – also defying gravity. In fact, it is along with all the attendant deck winches.
