The Sudan

Sudan LiveaboardsThe profuse and perfectly preserved reefs in Sudan bear witness to the Red Sea at its best. Almost every dive will offer a myriad of schooling fish and a dazzling display of coral gardens. Dense forests of soft corals and some of the world's best hard coral formations act as a Mecca to several species of sharks, barracuda, mantas and a huge variety of reef dwellers.

Wrecks, drop-offs and spectacular caves are just some of the attractions for the serious diver and underwater photographer. Sharks and mantas in unbelievable numbers are encountered in a technicolour marine environment, made all the more dazzling thanks to unsurpassed visibility.

Experienced divers with a keen sense of adventure can embark on our challenging Sudan expeditions. Diving World operates out of Port Sudan and Mohamed Qol, offering 7 and 14 nights itineraries diving the northern and southern reefs around Port Sudan. Thanks to more modern and faster vessels, we now also offer both the north and the south in the same week. Our 2014 Liveaboards and itineraries will guarantee some World class diving comparable to Cocos Island, Galapagos and Fiji. Access to Port Sudan  is now as easier as ever with reliable flights operated by an Emirates Airlines subsidiary without the delays that hampered this destination in the past.

Sudan divingMost of the diving in the Sudanese Red Sea is on coral pinnacle formations rising from great depths. These attract fishlife in vast numbers, including large pelagic species. The microclimate created by the mountainous range on either side of the African and Asian continents and the deep active volcanic rift which creates hot currents all year round, makes the Sudanese Red Sea richer in sub aquatic life than any other in the region. The average water temperature is around 27 to 28 degrees centigrade with a winter low of 24 degrees and summer high of 28 degrees. Visibility is unsurpassed all year round.
