The Blue Belt
Ranked as OK by independant reviews Ranked as OK by independant reviews
Located in: Africa >> Sudan >> Port Sudan  
The Blue Belt came to rest upside down pointing up a steep slope. The Bows of the ship are at 21m and the stern at 83m with some scattered cargo - mainly jettisoned vehicles, even deeper. The Bows tend to be the limit of this particular dive for most people. 20-25m allows the diver to inspect the upturned hull, gain a few glimpses of the focísle - from the outside and swim from jettisoned one vehicle to another as they litter the seabed.
21m / 69ft
83m / 272ft
Accidental sinking: 05-Dec-1977 Wreck penetration not possible Technical or decompression diving. More info...

If you don't go to deep, it's an easy dive.But be careful. Inside the wreck is a lot of oil. To take a picture of the propeller you have to go to 78m!

The blue belt (sometimes called the blue bell) is mainly the best wreck in the red sea but also a very dangerous wreck the ship has 2 under passes tha allow you to dive the other side however wreck penetration is very difficult

The blue bell is the best wreck in the in the red sea (apart from the salem express) looking at the toyotas that lie on the sea bed
