#12 Red Sea, Sudan
7 nights on a luxury yacht chasing schools of dolphins, hammerheads, barracudas and more! To top off the trip, we will be diving the famous Umbria Wreck. Built in Hamburg, the Umbria was launched on December 30, 1911. She was powered by two 6-cylinder compound steam-engines, producing 4,300 horsepower and enabling her to cruise at a top speed of 14 knots. She was a large passenger-cargo vessel with a length of over 150m and capable of carrying over 2,000 passengers and 9,000 tonnes of cargo. After a service between Europe and Argentina, she was purchased by the Italian government in 1935 and was renamed "Umbria". She was refitted as a troopship and ferried thousands of troops to various colonies in East Africa for the following two years then she was sold to the Triestino Line in 1937. The Umbria was then employed between Italy and various Mediterranean and Red Sea ports.
