The Bluff Point Barge

Ā 

This mini-wreck is known as the Gobal barge as well as ā€˜the wreck at Bluff Pointā€™. 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 PointĀ  has a dramatical appeal during night dives. When illuminated by torches, youā€™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.
