Rosalie Möller is a boat accessible salt water dive site, located in Hurghada, Egypt. The maximum depth is 81-90ft/25-27m. The average visibility is 36-40ft/11-12m.


Rosalie Moller, a cargo ship carrying coal, was bombed that led to her sinking in 1941. The shipwreck is covered with both hard and soft corals with an abundance of marine life. The best way to see and enjoy this wreck fully is through Technical Diving

Also known as the sister ship of the Thistlegorm, the Rosalie Moller was sunk only two days later, on 8 October 1941. Once again a German aircraft bombed the ship and it sank almost instantly, leaving it standing upright on a muddy seabed between the islands of Gobal and Queisum. With surprisingly little damage from the explosion, it is possible to see the ship in its entirety.

This dive is a little different than the Thistlegorm. First of the all the silty bottom in this area causes poorer visibility than usual in the Red Sea. The wreck lies a little deeper as well, with the stern at around 43 metres and the bow at 46 metres. The depth combined with the reduced visibility gives the dive the sense of gloom and doom that really works well for wreck diving.

For most of the year, the ship is covered in a thick blanket of glassfish, which are hunted by about 40 of probably the biggest lionfish known to man and a school of baby barracuda. In the darker corners of the wreck, massive potato cods are lurking and waiting for the exact right moment to scare the living daylights out of you, by suddenly appearing and disappearing in the gloom. On your way up from the dive, you may find yourself in the company of some overly friendly batfish.
