The Rosalie Moller Wreck is a great deep dive for experienced divers only. You can either dive on a regular single tank or with tech-diving equipment for a longer bottom time if you so desire.
The Rosalie Moller is the Sister Ship of the World famous, and maybe the best wreck dive in the World, Thistlegorm Shipwreck.
This former 108m long cargo ship transporting coal has been bombed and sunk in October 1941 by a German Air Attack during the World War 2. She lies now 55 m deep on a sandy seabed. The main deck is 35m deep and the mast raise at 18m. You can still see on the deeper part of the wreck the huge rudder and propeller as well as the ladders and handrails all along the main deck. The ship’s funnel is lying on one side. It is possible to penetrate the holds as well as the Bridge but unlike the Thistlegorm there is little to see as most of the artefacts have been removed
The hard and soft coral is covering the hull and makes great underwater pictures opportunities. In addition, this artificial reef attracts an interesting variety of marine life with Barracudas, Tunas, Jacks and Trevallies looking for their next meal. Reef Sharks can also sometimes be spotted. Inside the Rosalie Moller is full of Glassfishes, Lionfishes and Groupers.
The visibility is usually quite low due to the silt in the water and you can expect between 10m and 20m. The current is normally gentle. However, this is a deep dive and you should monitor carefully your bottom time!
It is possible to dive the wreck on a day trip from Hurghada or from Sharm El Sheikh but it takes about 3 hours to go there! The best is to explore this superb dive site on a Liveaboard exploring the North of Red Sea and that will make you visit other great dive sites of the area like the 4 wrecks of Abu Nuhas.
You can dive Rosalie Moller Wreck all year long. Access: from the Shore. See the map of Rosalie Moller Wreck on the right for the exact location.
