Liveaboard packages incl. flight

Join us in the footstep of Hans Hass and Jacques Cousteau and discover the Red Sea of Sudan.

With us, you can travel to Sudan and enjoy the wonderful diving aboard one of our Liveaboards. Our one week liveaboards are offered by flight to Port Sudan from where the Liveaboard start. You can also choose our popular tours starting in southern Egypt, these tours are 2 weeks trips and start from Port Galib north of Marsa Alam.

Since the country has no tourist infrastructure, a Liveaboard is the only way to explore the amazing, unspoiled underwater world.  Port Sudan is the port city of eastern Sudan and the capital of the Red Sea region. Whether your trip is from southern Egypt or if you fly directly to Sudan, Port Sudan is the port you will visit in Sudan for the administration of your Liveaboard.

On the mark of the two brilliant explorers it goes from Port Sudan to the North or South to almost pristine reefs and wrecks, which leave nothing to be desired.
For example, the Umbria, which is considered one of the most beautiful wrecks in the world, the Toyota – wreck, so named  because of its cargo of cars and trucks, or to the ruins of the underwater settlement “Precontinent” by Jacques Cousteau.

Sudan erbjuder nästan orörda rev och vrak, vilket lämnar inget att önska.
Till exempel, Umbrien, som anses vara en av de vackraste vrak i världen, Toyota-vraket, så namngivet på grund av sin last av bilar och lastbilar, eller till ruinerna av undervattensuppgörelsen "Precontinent" av Jacques Cousteau.

You can find colorful coral gardens, fascinating caves, deep, breathtaking drop offs or individual coral blocks. Again and again you can meet there large hammerheads or barracudas.  A variety of rays and the smaller fish in huge schools are located here.

About the country

Sudan is one of the largest countries in Africa and extends over 400 km along the Red Sea.
As in Egypt is also in Sudan the landscape, except on the Nile banks and some oases, barren and desolate. Because the country has no tourist infrastructure, a liveaboard is the only way to explore the stunning, pristine underwater world, as did also decades ago Hans Hass and Jacques Cousteau.

Sudan offers almost pristine reefs and wrecks, which leave nothing to be desired.
For example, the Umbria, which is considered one of the most beautiful wrecks in the world, the Toyota – wreck, so named  because of its cargo of cars and trucks, or to the ruins of the underwater settlement “Precontinent” by Jacques Cousteau.

The names of reefs such as Sha’ab Rumi, with its many sharks, Qita’al Banna with the huge drop off until 600 or Angarosh mother of sharks are a notion for insider.

You can find colorful coral gardens, fascinating caves, deep, breathtaking drop offs or individual coral blocks. Again and again you can meet there large hammerheads or barracudas.  A variety of rays and thesmaller fish in huge schools are located here. 

No one, who ever dived in the Sudan, was disappointed in the least. 

If you have been in the Egyptian Red Sea before and you are trying to find something new, or if you just want to have the best in front of your mask, what the Red Sea offers, a diving safari in the Sudan is inevitable.

Although the journey to Sudan is a bit extensive – it pays off!
