Scuba Diving Sudan Liveaboard The seven days cruise mainly is performed on the north of
Sudan, with diving around the most amazing reefs of this sea area.
The first stop of the journey is Wind-gate reef, where the famous sunk
Italian ship Umbria is resting with her history and all her fully untouched
Going on to
the north, the high and imposing Sanganeb lighthouse stands out over this
enchanted seaside. The big gray sharks and a close army of barracudas and
jack fishes, have elected as their dwell a 35 meters plateau, on the south
cape of Sanganeb. Here the wall sinks into the blue and there we’ll see the
curious hammer sharks but, care less about the divers, may be they will
climb slowly with a lithe dance up to the top and again disappear in the dip
The next stop is Sha'ab Rumi, a rich of surprises reef, we’ll dive on the
plateau close to the pass where Cousteau in 1964 built his laboratory.
On seeing the abandoned dwells fully covered of colored corals, it will be
a marvelous spectacle. Very close to the south cape of Sha'ab Rumi, from a
facing to dip blue platform we can approach shoals of gray and hammer
sharks; the dwelling barracudas here sometimes are so compact to darken the
sunlight.Not so far toward the north, there is
Sha'ab Saudi reef. Upturned on the reef and covered of gorgeous madrepores,
the Blue Belle wreck is resting, inside we can admire enormous tropical
Extending up to fourteen
days the cruise, always steering toward the north and crossing Quite El
Banna, we’ll reach Sha'ab Baya island.
Is a place with many attractions and it is worth to stop at least a couple
of days to have the opportunity of visiting Merlo reef, sailing to the
madreporical pick of Anga Rosh (the mother of sharks, here present in
crowded quantities and of every species).
Also the diving in Mesharifa, the devil fishes temple, will be
unforgettable, the reality will seem to us an illusion.
These very gentle and harmless fishes use arrange their meetings on these
shallow waters, in very large groups for breeding; it is enough to wear fins
and mask to get them close.
Coming back, if at the sunset we ride at anchor inside the reefs surrounding
Marsha Fijab, the dolphins bay, we can let be impressed about hundreds of
these likeable mammals that will bewitch us with their sweet calls, while
languishing swimming around our boat.
On request, you can spend the last day of your vacation, with an interesting
trip to Suakin, the deserted city, an ancient harbour of the Red Sea that
was built with blocks of coral rocks.
Tropical continental kind, exceptional all the year. There is
much less wind than in the North of the Red Sea. Winters are
mild, July and August are warmest months.
