Scuba Diving in Sudan

Dive Site: Sanganeb Reef

Location: Sudan

Description: Reef dive

Depth: 5 - 35 metres (15 - 115 feet)

Visibility: 15 metres (50 feet)

North Plateau

Rating: ****

This dive site is well known for its British built lighthouse that marks it location and can be walked up during your surface interval. Sanganeb is yet another reef that comes up from the depths and is visited by pelagics. When we dived here we saw a shoal of barracuda and a white tip reef shark but no other big stuff. It is a picturesque dive site home to some excellent coral and a healthy abundance of anthias and other reef fish.

Southwest Plateau

Depth: 5 - 30 metres (15 - 115 feet)

Visibility: 15 metres (50 feet)

Rating: *****

The Southwest Plateau is a good place to see inquisitive grey reef sharks as they were fed here in the past. Jacks and barracuda patrol in large shoals and Maori wrasse cruise across the plateau. There is a lot of soft coral and also black coral home to the rare longnose hawkfish.



Reader Reviews:

Follow the reef wall until the plateau starts. Lots of soft corals and table corals everywhere. Reef sharks come and say hello - sit on a sand patch and they will circle around you at about 3-5 metres. All around are jacks, batfish, barracuda and snappers. In the pinnacles you will see lionfish and a multitude of other life going about their business. Towards end of plateau there are humphead parrotfish and if you are lucky in the depths there are hammerheads. Day trips and liveaboards are available with Emperor Divers.
