Explore the best of Sudan’s Red Sea

The deep south of the Sudan offers some of the most magical dive sites with bountiful reefs and marine life. Departing from Port Sudan, you will first dive reefs in the area before heading further south to the reefs of Sanganeb, Shaab Ambar and Dahrat Abid. The route will then head north to explore reefs such as Shaab Rumi and the famous Cousteau habitat, Precontinent II.

Mantas, sharks and Rosso Dolphins are just some of the marine life you may encounter on this route. Red Sea Explorers’ experienced dive guides, including the sharkman Steven Surina, will guide you through the best parts of Sudan. If you love sharks, this is an itinerary that you don´t want to miss out on.



Join us on this trip to explore the very best of the Sudanese Red Sea.

Itinerary Highlights:

Umbria Wreck
The Umbria was an Italian passenger-cargo vessel over 150m in length that sunk during WWII. Unlike most wrecks in the Red Sea, the Umbria was sunk on purpose while anchored at Wingate reef close to Port Sudan. Carrying countless war-like commodities including detonators, bombs and ammunition, the decision to sink her was made by the captain in order to avoid losing the precious cargo to the British.

What to expect? Almost entirely intact and ranging from about 5 meters to 35 meters, the Umbria is a rare and spectacular dive. Its shallowness leaves it with a lot of natural light and good visibility. Offering a variety of possible dive itineraries, the massive wreck is overgrown with vibrant soft and hard corals, while its fish life is splendidly plentiful.

Dahrat Abid
The southernmost reef in the Sudanese Red Sea, Dahrat Abid lies 220km south of Port Sudan, only 30km away from the Eritrean border. A 500m long island that is populated with birds, the reef is easily recognisable by the wreck that lies on its north end.

What to expect? Clear, blue water; dizzying drop-offs, as well as a bountiful marine life that includes white tip, silver tip and hammerhead sharks. The reef is also alive with black coral bushes and spectacular hard and soft corals.��

Sanganeb
Known for its high levels of biodiversity, many of the species found in Sanganeb are unique to the park. There have been 251 species of coral fish recorded, but estimates of the actual number suggest they could be as many as 300, if not more.

What to expect? Sanganeb is home to a large number of pelagic fish, including the wrasse species of tuna, barracuda, sailfish, manta rays, and sharks, specifically hammerheads. There have also been numerous sightings of hawksbill turtles on the Sanganeb.

Shaab Rumi
A remarkable dive site with more than one location to see, it is in the outer reef of Shaab Rumi where a unique piece of dive history lays. Built by Jacques Cousteau in 1963, the Precontinent II was an underwater experiment that aimed to research whether a group of scuba divers could survive several weeks living in an underwater village, and it still stands to today.

What to expect? Apart from Cousteau’s habibtat, Shaab Rumi’s southernmost end is its most exciting dive site. A plateau that stretches towards the open sea, its three sides are surrounded by steep walls plunging into the deep. Expect to also see barracuda, tuna, batfish, and reef, grey and hammerhead sharks.
