Description:
Salem Express is located on the ground at a depth of 33 meters near the Egyptian city of Safaga. Diving on the ship, it is impossible to forget the scale of the tragedy has occurred here. Many dive guides never dive in this place, considering it a mass grave. On the other hand, almost every wreck - is anyone's shattered hopes and lives perished. No one on this occasion does not refuse to dive on Carnatic Wreck (Abu Nuhas), killing 30 people. Is the number of deaths determining the scale of tragedy? But Salem Express really has oppressive aura. And you can try to relax, admiring the huge mast, but then look unexpectedly falls into a baby carriage, almost overgrown, or a tricycle - and the heart is compressed from melancholy and sympathy for the finder is its own end to hundreds of people. The left side of the ship is at a depth of 10 m, and the ship is clearly visible from the surface of water. The bottom of the ship is covered with the remains of structures that covered the upper deck from the sun. Sailing along the deck, see the closed doors of the living quarters, glasses places available. In the center of the deck - 2 large tubes with the letters «S», decorated with laurel wreaths of mourning. These letters are likely to relate to the original name of the ship, «Fred Scamaroni». Beneath them on the bottom you can see 4 not used lifeboats. Next to them you can swim under the ship and be at 2 large screws, overgrown with corals and sponges. The interior of the automotive deck can be accessed through a large square openings, made by rescuers to retrieve the bodies. Hundreds of suitcases, toys, litter .. Do not go into these corridors. As the English say, «take only memories, leave nothing but bubbles!»

Рэк прекрасно виден даже в не очень удачную погоду, а от течения укрывает корпус корабля. Погружение прекрасно подходит для всех уровней сертификации.

Хочу добавить, что надстройка хорошо освещается солнцем в разгар лета - в июне-июле. В остальные месяцы хорошо освещено днище судна и борта, а самую интересную часть в сумраке фотографировать сложно.
