Scuba Diving in Sudan

Dive Site: Sha'ab Chanawi

Location: Sudan

Description: Reef dive

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

Visibility: 20 metres (65 feet)

Rating: ***

Our first dive in Sudan acting as a weight check / warm-up dive. The reef is nothing spectacular (hence being used for the weight check), but it was enjoyable nonetheless and it was certainly good to be back in warm water with the prospect of an excellent weeks diving ahead, especially when we wondered if we'd even get to Sudan! Some lovely clams and a variety of coral and quite a few small trevally as well as all the usual Red Sea reef fish. If you did this dive in Hurghada or Sharm in Egypt you'd be very happy but it will most certainly be the worst reef of the week in Sudan!
