Make Like Cousteau: 10 Amazing Man-Made Reefs To Dive.
Slide Nr 11
Whilst the sinking of WWII British Merchant Navy ship SS Thistlegorm was more spectacular than that of the Coolidge, it also came with a comparatively low cost of life. However, most of the cargo was lost to the deep, to the delight of divers who marvel at its treasures such as WWII-era trains, trucks and motorcycles. Perhaps the Thistlegorm’s greatest claim to fame is her discovery by Jacques Cousteau and the marine adventurer’s exploration of the wreck, as documented in National Geographic Magazine and his book The Living Sea. Following in the slipstream of the scuba diving legend is as simple as taking one of the many daily boat trips from Egyptian resort town Sharm El Sheikh. [Photo: Wikimedia Commons]
