5. The Blue Hole

The Blue Hole as it is rightly called, this submarine sinkhole is situated off the coast of Egypt in the Red Sea. More than 450 feet deep, the opening of the hole is 6 meters deep. There is a shallow tunnel too which is 26 meters long. These waters are obviously scary due to many aquatic dangers, but it doesn't stop there.

Many believe that the deep water is haunted by the ghost of a girl who committed suicide by jumping in the hole to escape a forceful arranged marriage.

Forty divers have lost their lives at the Blue Hole and the reasons of their deaths are so weird that supernatural activity seems almost obvious.

The agenda was that the Conway would go for the harbor while Rhone could sail in the open sea against all odds to reach it's destination.

The wreck is believed to be haunted because many divers claim that they feel someone tugging at their shoulders and when they turn, there is no one.
