This is one of the best tech dives in the area reachable only by boat. It is located on the deep end of the Eel Canyon dive site. This wreck was purposely put here to create a site for tech divers. There is not much coral growth on it because of its depth. But it is quite a sight to see in the deep blue waters. The bow of this ship begins at 38 meters. The wreck is in excellent condition, and divers enjoy visiting the bridge and engine room. There is more to be seen at even deeper levels, but divers must plan accordingly for deco stops.

Al Shorouk was scuttled by the Aqaba marine park in June 2008. Not everything went as planned and she started to drift into deep waters. They managed to stop her descent and push her back into shallower depth. She’s now resting on her side with the shallowest part of the wreck laying on 38 meters, the deepest part on 60 plus meters.

Due to its depth, Shorouk is an exiting dive site for beginner and advanced tech divers. The mooring line is attached directly to the bow. The line therefor can be used as a descend reference line and on the ascend for decompression stops.

There is a buoy on the bow of the wreck for descent and after a tour around it is best to travel to the north for decompression up at the famous M42 Duster tank in 6m to avoid long blue water hangs.

Ideal spot for technical divers. Moreover also could done from the top with divers, who have deep dive specialty. Many divers simply hang in the blue on the mooring line, but there’s much more to see if we ascend north along the bottom to Kirk’s Forest and Eel Canyons, making our final decompression stop at The Tank.

The reef surrounding the wreck is a slope, so due to the depth it’s a far swim from shore, the best access is granted by boat. Following the rail from bow to the stern, tech divers can penetrate the engine room as well as the bridge.

The wrecks play a pivotal part in what lures divers to Aqaba each year. You can find a tank, a plane and a spectacular ship all within meters of each other and the beach. There’s also the well-preserved Al Shorouk shipwreck at between 30 and 60 meters depth, and a more technical dive at the Taiyong shipwreck. These sunken beauties are, quite literally, fit for a king – King Abdullah II of Jordan frequents the waters often. Check All wrecks in Aqaba.
