SudanWrecks, reefs & sharks
Tailor-made holidays to Sudan
Right on the border of Red Sea diving, here you have the chance to dive some of the world’s most famous dive sites. A liveaboard is the only way to experience those dive sites that remain pretty much uncrowded and well preserved. Be prepared for an awesome variety of marine life and dense, soft corals.
The conditions at dive sites can vary a lot with deep and drift dives making this a destination best suited to experienced divers. Divers must be qualified to a minimum of Advanced PADI Open Water, or equivalent, with at least 50 logged dives. To fully enjoy all dives in the Sudan you will also need to have the Deep Diver specialty, or similar.
