Dive With Peter Collings- forget the rest-DIVE WITH THE BEST!

leading the way in red sea wreck discoveries since 1994!

With over 30 years experience, who better than Peter Collings to take you on an exciting exploratory tour of some of the worlds best shipwrecks? .Regarded by many as the leading expert on the subject, Peters book “Shipwrecks of the Egyptian Red Sea” has been described as a definitive work, but Peters endless search for new and undiscovered wrecks will surely produce an update covering the entire Egyptian coastline. (Due mid 2011) Peter will be leading no less than 20 escorted trips throughout the year, (although many are already full) sharing his knowledge and experience, providing 1st hand advice on wrecks, photography and marine life, and generally ensuring you get the most from your trip. Several of the trips will allocate time to search for some 20 new wrecks as far north as Ras Zafarana in the Gulf of Suez, utilizing the latest side scan units.

In 2000, in conjunction with TORNADO MARINE, Peter began an intensive program of exploratory wreck safari’s using the superb CYCLONE in the Northern Red Sea. 2003 saw that theme extend into the Gulf of Suez and the southern regions of Egypt, To such an extent that CYCLONE has been awarded the DIVER 2004 LIVEABOARD OF THE YEAR , and both Peter and Ayman Mussan, owner of the Tornado fleet were awarded the RED SEA GOVERNORS GENERALS AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE for their contribution to tourism and acknowledgement of Peters work in shipwreck discoveries and identification.

Peter has brought together over 50 of the leading wreck experts historians and archivists to form the RED SEA WRECK ACADEMY  and the group have been surveying the recently located EL ARISH, SCALLARIA, ZIETIEH , TURKIA , PRIDE OF AL SALAM, SARAH,and the EAST STAR, and at the end of 2009 the reborn Million Hope, El Qaher, Mona class and the Al Kafhain, ensuring up to date on site intel to give you the very best experience in wreck exploration

In 2013 we will be using both the Snefro Fleet out of Sharm and the Mermaid fleet based in Hurghada  and Hamata 12 SAFRIS  are already confirmed for 2013 with more dates available for groups.. Such wrecks as the superb S.S. TUKIA,  EL ARISH, OTTOMAN TRADER, ZIETIEH and the EL QAHER will be regular attractions. We also welcome back the MILLION HOPE-off limits due to a failed salvage attempt but now the “led zeppelin” of out northern tour-and a nice surprise lies beside her too!

The targets for the exploration weeks include the elusive

P & O SHILLONG,, and the British corvette, sunk by a British Cruiser,the DOMIAT.
