The ship was built in 1871, had a length of 78 meters and crashed on February 16, 1882 on the reef. It transported cargo of 1210 tons of coal. Today there are only remains of the hull and metal skeleton of its entire structure. Most of wooden elements underwent degradation by years spent under water, which created big spaces and possibility to swim inside the ship.
The Kingston is one of the favorite dives for underwater photographers in the South Sinai area. When the conditions are favorable and the current is not strong, the impressive coral garden she is sitting in, the number of corals that have colonized her, the maximum depth of the place (17 meters), and the amount of sea life around the wreck, make of this site a dive into history not easy to forget.
