It is unlikely that you will have dived in Elba before: it is a region in the far south of Egypt too far away to be included in the classic cruise programme. You will embark on a 9 or 10 day cruise!

Then the programme includes a day on Saint John before descending for 2 or 3 days to the pristine reefs of Elba, on the border with Sudan. After discovering the wreck of the Levanzo and the magnificent reefs that are no match for those of Sudan, you will sail north again to explore the never before dived sites between Elba and Abu Fendira. The boat will then pass through the Fury Shoals on its way up to Port Galep.


We propose you to discover new dives: Sanganeb, Shaab Rumi, the intact reefs of Suakin and those close to Eritrea, the hammerhead sharks, the incredible wreck of the Umbria, Précontinent 2, the humpback parrots...

over 10 or 15 days, the Deep South cruise offers the same dives as the 1 week itinerary but adds a number of small deserted islands and unknown reefs which are located in the southernmost part of Sudan, on the border with Eritrea. This is an opportunity to discover an unspoilt marine world: Abu Aisa, Dahrat Qab, Darraka, Ed Domesh, Qab Miyum, Ed Dak and finally the extraordinary Dahrat Abid with its spectacular seabed where any encounter is possible.


Djibouti is an extraordinary diving destination where you don't need to look for the clarity of the water in Sudan... Its rich and busy waters, where visibility rarely exceeds 15m, are the ideal place to meet pelagics, starting with whale sharks. From December to March, when the giants gather, Diving Attitude makes your dream come true and takes you on a cruise for dives that are both sporty and full of emotion in these waters at the junction of the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean!

Best time for diving
January to May & September to October, liveaboards operate all year round in Sudan. Hammerhead season peaks from January through April when the sea is at its coolest, while August to October might be the best time for you who want to see mantas. Visibility ranges from 20 meters during the rainy season from May to October to beyond 35 meters during the dry season from November through June.

About temperatures
Air : Sudan experiences mean annual temperatures between 26°C and 32°C, with summer temperatures in the north often exceeding 43°C. Rainfall in Sudan is unreliable and erratic, with great variation experienced between northern and southern regions.
Sea : winter months are between 23°C - 26°C, summer months are between 29°C - 32°C.

Wetsuit Recommendation
In the winter months, a 3 - 5 mm full wetsuit is recommended. In summer months a rash vest or 3 mm shorty wetsuit is recommended.

Diver requirement
Intermediate to Advanced, the Sudanese government requires divers to have logged 50 dives before diving in the country, and AOW certification is a good idea as currents in this region can be strong and some points of interest, such as wrecks and schools of hammerheads, can be deep.
You can find out more information about diving in Sudan here : Africa & Middle East.

Embarkation / Disembarkation
Liveaboards diving in Sudan typically sails from an Egyptian port - Hurghada (HRG), Marsa Alam (RMF), clearing customs at Port Sudan before diving within Sudanese waters begins.

Visa Requirements
Guests need two Egyptian Visa entries, one upon your arrival at the Airport, and the other one upon your arrival back from the Sudan trip. The first Egyptian entry visa you can get on arrival at the International airport. The second one will be arranged & paid onboard. For the Sudan entry Visa, most of the liveaboards will organize for you in advance before arrival to Port Sudan and will be issued & stamped on your passport upon our arrival to Port Sudan.

The CDC and WHO recommend the following vaccinations for Sudan: hepatitis A, hepatitis B, typhoid, yellow fever, rabies, meningitis, polio, measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR), Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis), chickenpox, shingles, pneumonia, and influenza.

Money Matters
The local currency is the Sudanese pound (SDG). However, since Sudan liveaboard trips start and end in Egypt, you will not need any SDG. The only chance you’ll touch Sudan land is when you decide to visit the lighthouse of Sanganeb reef.

Drone operations are not regulated in Sudan. Please refer to Drone Laws in Sudan for more details.
