Sha’ab Rumi South - Sudan

Sha’ab Rumi South is a boat accessible salt water dive site, located in Sudan. The maximum depth is over 150ft/46m. The average visibility is 91-100ft/28-30m.

The unstable political climate in Sudan and the uncertainty in the seas around Egypt mean that the dive sites in this area have remained relatively undamaged by visitors. There are only a handful of liveaboards in the region that offer this dive experience, and they’ll show you something truly unique. In 1963 Jacques Cousteau set up an underwater base here and investigated the effects being under water for long periods of time. Divers can see the original submerged observation cage. You’ll also spy grey reef sharks, hammerheads, silky sharks and bumphead parrot fish, plus a gray reef shark cleaning station lie on the sand and watch these magnificent creatures get licked and scrubbed down by other fish.
