New Dive Destination: Sudan

Introducing this excellent new destination - Sudan - just like diving in Egypt but with more fish, more sharks, more diverse dive sites, fewer boats and fewer people! What's not to love? Find out more about the diving in Sudan.

Liveaboards operate either directly from Sudan, or from Egypt and cover both Egyptian and Sudanese waters. Have a look at MS Royal Evolution and MY Andromeda. More boats coming soon.
