With you today in the third episode of the Exploration Journey, we will begin with a diving adventure in the sea accompanied by Captain Mustafa, Captain Mohammed, and Captain Karim, who abandoned the world of car test-drives to experience the feeling of diving in the Red Sea,
Our team went to the city of Umluj, which is one of the provinces of Tabuk region in the north of Saudi Arabia. Umluj is 130 km away from Yanbu, which was our destination in the previous episode, and it is about 500 km to the south of Tabuk, the administrative capital. Of course, we went to this journey with 2019 Ford F-150 Raptors.
Before the sea diving adventure started, Kareem insisted on finding an answer to the critical question: Are there sharks in the Red Sea?
Captain Mustafa answered the question, and pointed out that Umluj has very clear water, and even described it as the “Saudi Maldives”. He also talked about the coral reefs in the Red Sea, before he took a dive in the sea with Karim Deeb to show you what lies below the sea water.
Like Jeddah and Yanbu, the 2020 Dakar Rally will go through the city of Umluj in Saudi Arabia. This is why our team at Arab GT chose to visit the Maldives of Saudi Arabia with the American pickups 2019 Ford Raptors, which are powered by twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engines connected to 10-speed automatic transmissions.
After we finished visiting the city of Umluj, we headed to the city of Al Wajh; one of the most important tourist attractions in Saudi Arabia, with steep the rocky mountains.
