A pair of divers explore the 100-metre long cargo ship Giannis D, one of the biggest wrecks to be found in the Red Sea

Diving shipwrecks is a great adventure. Ive done 9 dives in Coron Bay, Philippines, cruising through mostly WWII ships. This picture depicts the long cargo ship Giannis D, one of the biggest wrecks to be found in the Red Sea.

Lost for 1,600 years, the royal quarters of Cleopatra were discovered off the shores of Alexandria. A team of marine archaeologists, led by Frenchman, Franck Goddio, began excavating the ancient city in 1998. Historians believe the site was submerged by earthquakes and tidal waves, yet, astonishingly, several artifacts remained largely intact. Amongst the discoveries were the foundations of the palace, shipwrecks, red granite columns, and statues of the goddess Isis and a sphinx.

Hoax: Shared as “Cleopatra’s Underwater Palace, Egypt”, this photo has in fact been taken at the Neptune Memorial Reef, in Florida, United States. This underwater mausoleum opened in some 2037 years after the end of Cleopatra’s reign.
