Kormoran/Zingara

In February 2007, when you wouldn't expect the weather to be fantastic, we were extremely lucky to dive on the Kormoran. Before its last voyage the name of the Kormoran was changed to Zingara - they always say its unlucky to change the name of a boat.

As the Kormoran sunk at a very exposed site in the Strait of Tiran it has been broken up over a wide area. However, due to large swell it is not often that the site can be dived and therefore many of the original features can be seen as they have not been squirelled away by unscrupulous divers. On our boat, only Johan of the instructors had dived the Kormoran before.

This wreck is situated in approximately 8 metres of water with the top of the ship at about 4 metres, which mean that it was a fantastic snorkel for Alex.The stern of the wreck is intact and as shown in the above picture still has the hand rails attached - beautiful. Other parts of the ship are still recogniseable, such as the engines and winches. When you are diving, if you look closely enough you will see the name, the new name that is - Zingara.

The Egyptian Government has agreed that this beautiful wreck can be broken up for salvage. This started in August 2007.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

March 2014

Just visited Sulawesi in Indonesia for the first time and can totally recommend it.

We spent a week at the Tasik Ria resort on the North of the island diving in the Bunaken Marine Park. We then moved on to the Lembeh Straits staying at the Kasawari Resort which was very lovely indeed. Lots of new critters were seen including seahorses, frog fish and a whole new fleet of nudibranchs. Just counting the days before we can return.

Meanwhile we are looking forward to the start of the UK diving season.
