The Bluff Point Barge
This mini-wreck is known as the Gobal barge as well as ‘the wreck at Bluff Point’. It sank at Gobal Shaghir, north of Hurghada.
The remains are sparse and at a depth of 14 meters. Bonus is the hull, smothered in lively and surprisingly colourful corals.
The wreck at Bluff Point has a dramatical appeal during night dives. When illuminated by torches, you’ll see nudibranchs, cuttlefish, octopus, giant groupers, schools of glassfish, crocodile fish, various crustaceans and moray eels. .
Night dives are very popular at Bluff Point and is the best time to witness the appearance of fire-red Spanish dancers contracting nudibranchs.
