Nice wreck, but with a tragic history (the official death toll from her sinking was 470 - many of those were returning from a pilgimage to Mecca). She lies in approximately 30m of water on her starboard side. Shes about 100m long with a beam of around 18m. One of the largest wrecks in the Egyptian Red Sea. She still has lifeboats sitting on the sea bed near the funnels.

I caught my wife looking up at the Salem Express and into the sun as it reflected off her mask just as I went to take a photo! Taken with a Canon Ixus 980 with an Inon 105 wide angle lens.

It's not until you tilt your head to the right and look at the photo you realise this is a walkway with a bench people walked and ran down as the Salem Express sank during the darkness. It's hard to describe your feelings as you take this view in.
