Itinerary Details

Dive the very best, classic dive sites in Sudan-Sha'ab Rumi, Sanganeb and the stunning Umbria wreck. Our 1 week itinerary Sudan North is guaranteed to impress!

Sudan North Description

Sha'ab Rumi, the Con Shelf, Sanganeb and Wingate's Umbria are some of Sudan's finest dive sites. And the Sudan North itinerary focuses on these undeniable highlights. The walls are deep and plateaus an ideal stage for shark watching. Add to this the beautiful wreck dives at the unique Umbria and Con Shelf II and you are guaranteed an incredible Sudan liveaboard, packed with excitement and variety. These are classic dives and a must see for any diver in Sudan.

Sudan is a place filled with remarkable encounters. The coral reefs are lush with hard and soft coral gardens, interspersed with large sponges and cascading whip corals. Plateaus, deep pinnacles and coral gardens are shelter and home to schools of reef fish. From tiny clown fish to swathes of snapper, there is plenty to watch. Giant barracuda and even bumphead parrot fish school... if you can take you eyes off the pelagics passing. Sudan is home to hammerhead, grey reef and thresher sharks. All this pelagic action can overshadow the outstanding wreck dive that is the Umbria. This is the ideal start to your diving in the area, and is a picturesque wreck at recreational depths. For more experienced wreck divers, there are also some excellent opportunities for penetration. Cousteau's Con Shelf II lies in shallow water and makes for a fascinating dive. See for yourself this experiment into early saturation diving as she lies forgotten underwater.

Sudan is a remote location and the north tour takes full advantage of this with almost complete isolation over the course of the itinerary. The diving can be challenging and experience with currents and drift diving is a must. We recommend a minimum of 50 dives for this itinerary. If you are looking for the next big adrenalin rush, then the time has come to dive Sudan North!

No payments in credit cards can be accepted in Sudan. On board you will need to pay Sudanese visas and taxes (240 euro paid locally in cash), service tax (42 euro) and transfers (60 euro) locally. These are subject to change
