Sudan may not be a high profile tourist destination, thanks to its history of political unrest. But add to that a variety of sharks, barracuda and manta rays, sometimes in wonderful visibility and you will begin to appreciate the natural wonder of Sudan. Famous dives like the Umbria Wreck, Toyota Wreck and Cousteau's Conshelf II are quite simply unique and unforgettable. As a result it is considered a bit of a step up from Egypt.

Sudan usually attracts more experienced divers and those who may have been to the Egyptian Red Sea before. To those in the know, it is simply the best diving in the Red Sea. Some of the dives may offer challenges in terms of depth or wreck penetration that would be a little too much for beginner divers in places like Sharm El Sheikh. Some also feature interesting topography like vaulting coral pinnacles, steep and deep drop-offs or fascinating caves. Most dives promise delightful coral gardens and schools of fish. .

Nevertheless, diving tourism is very much on the rise as word spreads of beautiful, colorful, pristine reefs, healthy shark populations, uncrowded dive sites, unforgettable wrecks and big schools of fish. Sudan a fascinating liveaboard destination as a number of amazing wrecks litter the sea bed. Liveaboard trips either depart from Port Sudan or from the Egypt's Port Ghalib, so it is in fact an easy-to-get-to destination.
