Divers on El Miniya

Video footage of El Miniya (Red Sea)

The El Miniya is a minesweeper, sunk in 1970, lying close to Hurghada harbour. There’s no reef nearby so one’s view of the whole wreck is limited only by the visibility. Here are two short panoramas I filmed showing the wreck.

This one was filmed at her stern, where our liveaboard tied up to a line attached to one of her propeller axles:

You can see another video that I filmed on our ascent from this wreck in this post.
