This cruise is for expert travelers, who love adventure, cruising and exclusive diving. The two week “Deep South” itinerary is considered a fascinating, new option for people with pioneering spirt who will have much to tell about once they get back home.
This cruise has come into being only recently, a couple of years back, and runs with continuity in a limited period of the year: late spring-early summer (April – June). Owing to the lack of shelters and lagoons and the presence of many high reefs, these waters can be visited only when the sea is calm. It is therefore necessary to wait for the “good season”.
The archipelago of Suakin consists of a myriad of reefs, isolated turrets and a few islands. Also there are emerging rocks and shallow waters not indicated in nautical maps. Only the experience of the M/Y captains who operate in P. Sudan or much time spent with dedication to exploring these waters can gain you access here.
It is the great charm of Sudan, not just the illusion but the true sensation of being the first and only visitors.
The “Deep South” cruise is the longest in terms of navigation: about 240 miles. It almost reaches the border between Sudan and Eritrea. The last reef of the Sudanese archipelago is only 40 miles off Eritrea.
You will navigate up to Dahrat Abid, the most famous reef for the sighting of big schools of hammerheads.
This itinerary is recommended for those who have already been in Sudan and wish to return. It is a complete itinerary, because it offers many opportunities for sighting sharks, great quantity of fish and splendid coral in variety and color.
Friends will understand us when we say this cruise is recommend only for expert divers. The “open” will forgive us if we suggest they gain more experience before they start making diving excursions in Sudan…
