Grand Tour of Sudan

Sometimes our greatest adventures are born in adversity. When airline problems and a military coup made transiting our divers through Port Sudan difficult, our captain suggested a spectacular alternative. Why not cruise from Sharm-el-Shiekh down to the Sudan in a circular route, exploring the sensational reefs and islands never before seen by divers? By beginning and ending our cruises in Sharm, we would avoid any of the problems of the Sudan, yet still offer our divers the Red Sea's most remote and beautiful reefs.

Our Sudan cruises operated this new itinerary with spectacular success. The diving was certainly the most untouched and exotic in the Red Sea, far surpassing the Sinai reefs in the North and the Sudanese reefs to the South. Day after day we dove walls of blazing color so pristine we knew no other divers had ever impacted them. Our cruise covered nearly 700 miles; we dove six different major reef groups. Severa lof our sites were so out of the way we knew we were the first divers ever to see them. What thrills we had!

Due to incredible demand we are delighted to have TWO of the Red Sea's most beautiful dive cruisers offering our northern Red Sea adventures. The 98 foot Poseidon's Quest pampers only 10 divers in five air-conditioned private suites; the massive 85 foot Ghazala Explorer has eight air-conditioned suites and lots of space. Both vessels offer unlimited diving in unparalleled comfort!

With the size and range of Ghazala Explorer divers can enjoy the Red Sea's greatest diving in incredible comfort.

The reefs we visit are filled with life; moray eels, spotted rays, turtles, shimmering curtains of reef fish, plunging walls carpeted with purple and rose soft corals. There are also three major wrecks to explore!

Those of you who have enjoyed the greatest, richest reefs the world has to offer have a new wonder to anticipate. Big animal enthusiasts, photographers, and those who want their reefs filled with a parade of gaudy thrills, we have inside advice for you: this program is limited by the length of the season and size of the vessel, so only a select few divers each year will get to enjoy this adventure. Don't missout!
