    The Salem Express was a passenger ship that sank in the Red Sea. It is controversial due to the tragic loss of life which occurred when she sank shortly after midnight on December 16, 1991. Coordinates: 26°38′22.02″N 34°3′39.9″E
    The Salem Express was a roll on, roll off car & passenger ferry that operated between the ports of Safaga (in Egypt) and Jeddah (Saudi Arabia). On one such return journey from Jeddah, she sank after colliding with Hyndman Reef in the early hours of 16 December 1991. The impact with the reef both holed the bows and caused the bow visor to be forced open. She very quickly took on water and sank, on her starboard side within minutes. Loss of life was considerable, with the official figure being quoted as 470. Rumour suggests that there were many more on board, however this is debatable as official records list the number of passengers and crew as 690.
    Many bodies were recovered after the sinking, but eventually a halt was called due to the danger involved and the wreck was sealed with plates welded across openings.
    Dives, as of April 2013, revealed that the wreck is in good shape and coral covers much of the ship. Divers can peer into windows and can easily enter the ship from many points. Reports of plates being welded over access points could not be verified. Additionally, while the bow of the ship is crumpled and bent, there are no signs of cracking, at least on the port side. The bow visor is clearly open by about 12-16 inches at the base, closest to the waterline. The sea floor, 29 meters deep, is littered with debris. Notably, two ridged life boats rest between the smoke stacks and the stern. At the stern of the ship, divers can enter the large car door. The wreck still contains cars and luggage, a haunting reminder of the lives lost.

  3. can u tell me what are the names of music you use in this video from 0:00 to 0:57 and from 1:00 to 5:00 i will be thankfull

  4. What did you creep do inside the wreck? It's forbidden and tasteless, because it's declared a grave. People like you are responsible if diving at the wreck site will be prohibited one day.

  5. Amazing (and suitably respectful) dive and video. The bridge at 01:58 is sadly breathtaking. Is that really an actual air-pocket deep inside the ship, too???

  6. Awesome ! Wonder why the ship was sealed at many places.
    Deeply encouraging. The condition of lights on cars, man, they haven't even lost the color. Impressive build quality of that time missing right now. Wonder why the wreck and cars are not taken out.

  7. Is it disrespectful/illegal to go inside the wreck? I ended up here because I watched a whole documentary/episode presented by a TV show called "Naufrágios" on OFF Channel.
    Seeing luggage, rugs, dolls, Baby strollers and many other personal items was really creepy.
    May all the people who perished rest In Peace.

  8. Олег, можно узнать, что за музыкальное сопровождение данного видеоклипа?

  9. Классно смонтировано. Спасибо! Как будто снова там побывал……Боюсь этот рэк…..

  10. Снято профессионально!!!!, порой кажется что это компьютерная графика.Монтаж супер.Автору смело можно давать Оскара.

  11. I was unable to dive the Salem Express when I went diving years ago as it was too rough and the operators were concerned for safety.

    If I’m honest, I was also somewhat anxious about diving a wreck that had such a significant loss of life, with many bodies still trapped inside.

    However, you have done an excellent job. Capturing imagery of what is essentially a mass grave without being disrespectful or irreverent to the people who died there is no mean feat.

    Thank you for the video.
