North Sudan

The reefs of Sudan first of all show the outburst of colors: giant forests of soft corals coexist with witty plantings of hard corals. There are vertical walls that run into marine depths, caves, currents that permit drifting, wrecks and various underwater dwellers. Here 50 years ago two famous diving pioneers – Hans Hassu and Jacques Yves Cousteau filmed an incredible marine life. The last mentioned explorer managed to make several discoveries during the investigation at underwater station Conshelf II. As a result a world famous film was created – “World Without Sun”. Any diver won’t stay indifferent to the surrounding virgin nature and marine harmony that is typical for Sudan.
