Your adventure begins in Port Sudan. Please remember that you are not permitted to take any alcohol into Sudan.
Usually trips last 7 nights on board.
On arrival in Port Sudan you will be met and taken directly to the boat. Settle in, complete your check in and get your dive gear ready. You will not dive this day so you have time to recuperate and get ready for the action to begin.
No payments in credit cards can be accepted in Sudan. On board you will need to pay all local fees in cash. These are subject to change at short notice
The Umbria was an Italian cargo vessel that was scuppered by her crew in 1940. Today, she lies in recreational depths in the shelter of her anchorage. It is a stunning wreck and well worth diving. The holds are packed with a range of cargo, including Fiat cars, bombs, detonators, explosives and a huge pile of empty wine bottles! Experienced divers can enjoy penetrating the wreck, although the inside can be silty. The exterior shell of the wreck is smothered in marine life.
Sanganeb & Sha'ab Rumi
Sanganeb is a huge reef, with it's very own lighthouse. The main focus for the diving here is to the southwest plateau. Hang in the blue and wait for the sharks to appear. Or wend your way along the wall or between the coral pinnacles. Clouds of swettlips and jacks give way to barracuda, as they spiral across the plateau. Sha'ab Rumi is no less a famous dive in Sudan. It's plateau is a stage for shark encounters and bumphead parrot fish drift overthe reef top shallows.
On select itineraries, you may also dive at Angarosh reef. Please check at the time of booking for your intended date of travel.
Cousteau's Con Shelf II
Jacques Cousteau left his mark and the Conshelf II still sits underwater as a testament to his team's experiments into saturation diving. This is a shallow and fascinating dive, perfect for the afternoon dive.
Royal Evolution may also include dives in the North Suakin group of sites.
On your last day, you will dock back at Port Sudan. There is an opportunity to walk around the city, but please remember, this is not a touristic destination so we ask that you dress modestly and are appropriately covered. You will be taken off the boat and directly back to airport for your flight home.
