After the tragedy of "Salem Express". Diving on the wreck of the Salem Express aroused much controversy a few years ago. However, a little weakened but still are. Some refused to dive on the ship at all.
There were those guides diver who actually discouraged to dive in that area. Every opinion was important and developed lines of whether, how, when diving. The wreck could not be affected. There diving for the first time in 2002, there was even a way to reach inside the wreckage, and local guides at the dive briefings notes that for them is the cemetery.
Many people were died there-Salem sailed from the port of Jeddah in Saudi Arabia, was carrying pilgrims to Mecca. Almost every boat handling have family there.Today, after a dive in October 2010 on the left side of the door are uprooted, inner doors, stern lies at the bottom and you can reach the center of experiencing a shock. Of course, the guides do not take us to places where human remains are yet but consciousness itself is quite depressing.
Many people still believe that the Salem Express diving should be prohibited. It is interesting that many of the divers who insist on "no" to dive the Salem Express and who actually pushing for it to accept their views do not see the problem on the other wreck dives such as Carnatic example where 31 people died or where Thistlegorm 9 people were died!
