Sudan Liveaboard Scuba Diving Safaris

Suddenly feeling the urge to get away from it all? Get away to Sudan for some winter holiday and some of the best scuba diving to be found in the World.

Scuba diving holidayGet far enough south in the Red Sea and you won’t see other safari boats, liveaboards, or overdived reefs – just marine life, and lots of it! Sudan is known as the gem of the Red Sea and with reason! Untouched reefs, a splendour of corals in thousands of amazing colours, huge schools of fish and of course, sharks in abundance can be found here. And no wonder that Captain Cousteau built his underwater observatory here the parts of which can still be explored by scuba divers.

Shark in the sudanese Red SeaAfter visiting Angarosh, one of the most famous shark sites in the world, a really exciting wreck awaits us – the Umbria. Besides the beauties of the sea, we must also mention Suakin, the ghost town, which once was the main port in the Red Sea.

The wreck of UmbriaAs we did this year, we are returning to Sudan – with M/Y Cassiopeia and M/Y Andromeda – again in February, 2014 until June, so we look forward to seeing you and your guests again onboard for another amazing season in Sudan and we hope to see some new faces as well for an unforgettable experience.

We offer a collection of unbeatable, special offers to Sudan from February 2014 until the end of June.

La Dolce Vita onboard Andromeda

The water temperatures that were once 25C in February, have now become 29C and the air temperatures have also increased by 10C. Due to the lack of any significant winds in Sudan in the past 3 weeks, the water surface is 28-29C now and about 26C at 40m deep. This week there was no full house on the boat, so la dolce vita was in full swing.

Tour date: May 6-13, 2013
Itinerary: Sudan-North
Air temperatures: 35-39C
Water temperatures: 29-29C
Visibility: 10-30m

diving, safari, red sea, sudan, andromeda, sunsetAt Angarosh the first 2 hammerheads appeared right away. And a great surprise – a longimanus also showed up. At Merlo Reef we snorkelled with dolphins and at Shaab Rumi we dived with grey reef and white-tip sharks but the currents were so strong that we were not able to swim out into the open sea, so we missed the hammerheads this time. No despair, the north side of Sanganeb made up for it and we were able to swim with a huge school of them and with some grey reef ones at the south side. There was a grey reef shark even at Umbria! The triggerfish are still spawning and have not let up their attacks yet, so the fins keep getting decorated with their bite marks, if we get too close. 🙂
