Learn More About  Sudan
Sudan is a vast area and  known for large reefs, lagoons and pinnacles, pristine coral and walls, schools of hammerhead sharks, grey sharks, white tip sharks, tuna, jacks and barracudas, lots of manta rays and wrecks.  Sudan is the largest country in Africa and bordered by Egypt to the north, the Red Sea to the northwest. The warm, crystal clear water of Sudan offers immense variety with over 400 species of coral and 1500 species of fish, turtles and sharks. It may be best known for seeing large schools of hammerhead sharks along with many other species of sharks and large schools of fish. It has one of the best preserved World War II wrecks in the Red Sea, the Umbria which is 500 feet long and lies on its port side in water that ranges from 15 to 155 ft deep. The freighter was built in 1912 in Hamburg, Germany and sold to Italy. In 1940, the captain was so determined to not let the British Navy overtake it in Port Sudan that the Captain gave orders to sink it due to its precious cargo of 360,000 aircraft bombs, ammunition and other supplies. Today you can also see hundreds of wine bottles aboard. 
 
From February to October, 7 night itineraries are offered either to the north, south or 10 and 11 nights to the deep south.
