How to get there: Elegante departs from Port Sudan for its Sudan liveaboard trips. The first and last nights of the cruise are spent in the harbour. Guests arrive and board any time on the first day. There are flights from Cairo to Port Sudan (PZU) with Tarco, Egypt Air and Sudan Airways. This is a much easier route than flying into Khartoum. For more details see our travel information section for Sudan. We can assist guests with arranging flights to Sudan. Elegante will pre-arrange your "visa on arrival" (US$ 310, or US$ 260 for USA nationals).
The last dive of the trip will be at 1 pm on the penultimate day before the boat returns to port by 5-5:30 pm. Please wait at least 18 hours before flying after diving. Guests disembark at 10:30 am on the final day.
