Dive site yet few visited, although there are divers for over 20 years, the Sudanese coast offers you the finest treasures of the Red Sea.
No need to go around the world to meet the most awesome sharks...

Many reefs bording Sudan see the passage of large pelagics and are home to a rich coral wildlife.

Sha'ab Rumi is the place where the sharks are alongside the schooling of barracudas and humphead parrot fishes. Meetings with Hammerhead sharks are frequent as at the foot of the Sanganeb lighthouse.

Rich with the marine life of its reefs, Sudan is also famous for its diving history: Commander Cousteau had chosen to unstall its Houses Under the Sea here, during the experiment of Precontinent II in 1963 and Umbria wreck, Italian cargo ship scuttled in 1940 when Italy started the war, is a wonderfull wreck now. Follow the guide to discover the engines room, shipments of bombs and ammunitions, under curious eyes of Arabica angel fishes.

Unforgettable dives await you from Port Sudan!
