The Dunraven is a former British steamship that stranded on Beacon Rock in March 1876 on its way back from India. The cargo of wool and cotton set fire, but no lives were lost. The wreck was only discovered in 1979 and it took a while before it was identified. She now lies upside down in two parts at depths between 18 and 28 meters as one of Egypt's most famous diving wrecks. The Dunraven can be entered through three large holes. For the most common route, descend along the screw to enter the wreckage from the rear. Continue your dive through the hull, past the boilers to leave the ship once again through one of the openings. During your dive you will spot glass fish, moray eels and beautiful black coral.
