– Salem Express
Wreck Salem Express is a special dive site of the Red Sea, One of the greatest ship wrecks at Red Sea because of the tragedy story and wreck condition and Marin life
History
a passenger ship with a length of 100 meters. At the end of the journey from Jeddah in Saudi Arabia to Safaga, with a huge number of pilgrims returning from Mecca, mide night between 15-16 December 1991, she sank. The ship hit the Hyndman reef. As a result of the blow, a hole was formed in the bow and a trap door was opened at the stern of the ferry. Water began to flood the ship from two sides and it gave a roll to the starboard side. Salem Express sank for 20 minutes, according to official figures, about 470 passengers died, but their real number is probably more than 1,000. Survived only 180 people. This became one of the biggest sea tragedies. Many do not want to sink here, because they believe that this is a tomb and should not be bothered. If you decide to dive into this sunken ship, be very respectful and do not touch anything. There are still a lot of personal things on board, and they should stay there.
Wreck conditions
The wreck of the Salem Express lies on its starboard side in 30 meters of water. At the bow the ship’s anchors are still in position and the bow door, which allowed water into the car deck, is still in the open position. The foc’sle still has the anchor windlass winches mounted on it, along with ventilation ducts protruding through the deck. The port side of the vessel, which is facing the surface, has many windows and ports looking into individual cabins, and the companionway runs along the main deck from fore to aft complete with handrails.
Ship’s lifeboats can be seen lying next to the ship on the bottom. The ship’s stern and views of the rudder are absolutely stunning! The Samatour Company logo can still be seen on the ship’s funnels. Penetration dives can be made on this wreck. However divers
