Emperor Divers. It sunk on the 19th May 1994 after an explosion
in the engine room & subsequent fire while carrying 505 passengers &
63 crew with the loss of 21 lives.
The wreck lies in 83m of water with a minimum depth of 64m on the
port side hull. It is intact and lying on it's starboard side and
makes for an absolutely fantastic dive in the Red Sea waters.
