Have you ever seen the wreck of Umbria from above? Thought you should see this!
Scuba Diving from the sky!
This week we have received not only good news and breathtaking images from Sudan but a fresh, hot-of-the-press video surprise … off the back of a bird. Yes, you heard it right!
We had a “helicopter” with us for a couple of weeks that had already taken gorgeous aerial photos of Shaab Jumna and Umbria. You can watch one of the videos here.
The spawning season of the brown-marbled groupers has begun at Shaab Rumi and Sanganeb and as a result, the plateau is swarming with 50-80 groupers all about 50-80cm long.
We ran into an old buddy at Shaab Rumi again we have been seeing every year for the past 3 years – an enormous weatherworn barracuda. He is especially friendly this year and lets himself to be photographed even from a few centimetres. Voila!
About 10 grey reef sharks monitor Shaab Rumi, we saw 5 hammerheads in the deep blue and the plateau is truly alive. We have managed to run into a 20-member hammerhead school at Sanganeb and on the south plateau into 2-3 grey reefs and a quite lively marine life, all this matched by excellent visibility.
Tip of the week:
What kind of wet suit to bring to Sudan?
In May and June most divers can do with a shorty. Between February and April you are normally good with a 3 or 5mm long suit.
This is where we were this week:
