We are preparing our next season in SUDAN FOR 2014. We are planning 18 diving weeks. Our Sudan itineraries have been expanded with the one-of-a-kind true adventure 1-week and 2-week DEEP SOUTH TOUR and the exciting ULTIMATE SUDAN TOUR with the combination of North and South dive sites. And we still offer the traditional NORTH AND SOUTH TOURS from which to choose.
Compare to the rest of the boats sailing in Sudan we have some additional benefits that are guaranteed to get the best services:

Unique itineraries: We are the only ones offering 1-week and 2-week tours in the Deep South of Sudan.
Diving: You can enjoy 3 day dives and a free night dive every day.
Safety: Ours are the only liveaboards (M/Y Cassiopeia and M/Y Andromeda) with a lost diver search and locate security system.
Speed: We are the fastest boats in the region, enabling us to reach the most remote sites.
Comfort: Our 100m2 sun deck is your ultimate escape to take it easy. 24h aircondition onboard.
Relaxation: We offer free delicious shisha onboard in our shisha room.
Fun: You can rent scooters onboard to make your dives even more exhilarating.

Today is about fish again because we have seen marvellous things in Egypt! Like a Rhina Ancylostoma and a Stegostoma Fasciatum or Varium. And this is only the beginning as we have just barely left the harbour… and all this at the beginning of a classical North safari.
Usually March is not the most preferred month for divers in Egypt. But we still like sailing then too, map out the underwater scenery without that all that “popularity” down there. And we have found something this week without even trying. We are doing a classical North tour.
There it lay, a few metres from the wreck of Dunraven at 28m deep on the sandy bottom, a bowmouth guitarfish, 2.5m long. If you wish to dive and see it, even if only in your imagination, you can do it here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bowmouth_guitarfish
We had similar luck yesterday at the Woodhouse Reef 10 minutes into our dive where at 20m deep we ran into a 1.5m long zebra shark lazily lying on the sandy bottom. Zebra sharks can be found a bit more frequently in the Red Sea but they are still not an everyday occurrence!
By the way, the air temperature is about 28C, perfect for a safari! J
A week at sea, gently rocking with the boat, sailing among small islands. Skyblue sea as far as the eye can see, sunrays caress your skin, you read a book, listen to your iPod, lay back comfortably in your sunchair and relax until your next dive. Your thoughts are still around the fish from your previous dive but you already look forward to the next one. A week of worryfree holiday when your shisha is prepared for you by the crew every evening after the delicious dinner and while you take puffs from the apple flavoured tobacco, your only thought is you wish this week would never end
Your filled-up tank always waits for you in its usual place, tasty food is prepared and ready for you. At night you contemplate whether to sleep under the starry night or spend the quiet night in your cabin. You are bound to relax here – it’s all about that in the middle of the sea. Yet there will be so many adventures and great experiences to remember about this week that you will talk about for a long time to come.
Which itineraries should you try? All of them! If you love wrecks, then choose our North safaris which you can combine with a Tiran itinerary. If you long for calmer seas and less crowded dive sites, then you should try our Safaga area safaris. At Borthers, Daedalus and Elphinstone you will enjoy a real shark adventure! And on a St. John’s safari – well, anything could happen. 🙂 But if you wish to experience something new, then your choice must be Elba.
The possibilities are endless! If you are out of ideas, call us or e-mail us and we will help!
