The Kingston Wreck is located near Shag Rock dive site in the Strait of Gubal, North Red Sea. It has been long misidentified and called the Sarah H Wreck.

The Kingston is a former 80m long steamship sunk in February 1881 with no loss of life after hitting the Shag Rock Reef. She now lies very shallow from 10 to 20m deep of water making it a great choice for the second dive of the day. The hull is still in good shape and seats upright perpendicular to the current making it a good shelter.

The coral along the hull is beautiful, offering plenty of wonderful pictures opportunities. It also attracts plenty of fishes and it is not rare to spot turtles or pelagic fishes swimming by. At the end of your dive you can finish by exploring Shag Rock beautiful reef with coral in pristine conditions and a teeming reef life.

It is possible to dive this wonderful wreck on daytrips from Sharm El Sheikh but it takes a long 3h30min trip each way. It is best to discover the Kingston during a Liveaboard exploring the North of Red Sea.

Most people are here for Wreck Diving.
