Conservation work has now started on the SS Thistlegorm to preserve this legendary wreck for the future. Members of the HEPCA diving and mooring team are currently working alongside volunteer divers from the Red Sea community. The conservation operation is expected to last 10-15 days. HEPCA is ensuring that the work causes minimal inconvenience and will be completed as timely as possible subject to the prevailing weather conditions. During this time no diving activity is permissible on the wreck for safety reasons. Massive thanks to Blue O Two and Red Sea Explorers for their technical and logistical assistance during the operation. HEPCA would also like to thank all individuals and organizations for their continued cooperation and support.
