In August 1984 the Kormoran, built in 1963 in the Rostock shipyards (Germany), was coming from Aqaba with a cargo of phosphate when an error in navigation caused it to hit the reef bordering the island of Tiran (Laguna Reef). The impact was tremendous and the vessel, lost almost all of its bow, two large cracks opened on it’s left side and the superstructure was irreparably damaged. Now scuba divers at Sharm el-Sheikh can enjoy the new and interesting experience of going to see the wreck, which is still relatively unknown, Best to be dived when the sea conditions are good, stunning views of attractive colours of coral formations on the surrounding seabed.
