Deep South Sudan dive sites description


 
Dahret Abid:
 
This a small island 20nm north of the Eritrean border, 30nm east of the Sudanese shore line, the dive here is at the north eastern tip where a great reef wall slopes steeply into the abyss from a depth of 2m, if the current permits the first part of the dive is spent out in the blue where a great school of scalloped hammer heads usually cruises by when there are divers in the water, just above 30m at the reef wall itself there is a small collapsed balcony that hosts the most spectacular hard and soft coral formations, this balcony is home for lots of schooling reef fish, from the hump back snapper to the giant sweet lip, it is also home for a couple of white tip reef sharks that are agitated by the presence of divers which they are not used to yet, heading down south east the usual pelagic are very frequent, the wall however has more surprises, black coral formations are all over the place, and schooling long fin bat fish! This is a dive where one will not want to finish.
 

Dahret Ghab:
 
This another small island bigger than Dahret Abid and 12nm northerly... at the south west point a lovely reef wall slopes gently to 20m forming an elongated sandy bank to around 25m then a hard coral humpback up to 20m then steeps into the abyss at the 30m mark, the sandy bank is a play ground for some big dog tooth tunas and barracudas, at the drop off, a solo great hammer head might pass by and check out the divers dashing in and out in what seems like(this is my place)sort of behaviour, a lovely plateau with lots of schooling fish and a small resident school of bump head parrot fish!
 

Habili Dahret Ghab:
 
Just around 2nm west of Dahret Ghab an almost round reef which starts from 2m under the surface has a lot of surprises, at the south point the reef slopes gently to about 30m forming a small sandy area then saddles back up to the early 20m mark and forms a small plateau that is practically covered with colourful soft corals which hosts an abundance of reef fish, just of the plateau a school of black fin barracudas gives a nice show, however, 12 baby silky sharks just under 1m each stayed at the diving deck, one will unusual go snorkelling with these babies, an experience beyond descriptions, we were always wondering where on earth are the parents!?
 

Dahret Darraka:
 
This is another small island between Dahret Abid and Dahret Ghab, we called it turtle island from the clear markings of turtles crawling up the sandy beach to lay their eggs, there is a plateau at the south eastern wall which goes down to around 25m and then slopes into the abyss, the topography of the plateau was the most interesting apart from the usual congregation of reef fish, just at the drop it looks like a half moon and at the eastern point of the plateau there is a great crevice which looks like a huge chimney going up almost to the surface!
 

Unnamed Habili: (Most probably Habili Dahret Abid)
 
Few miles east of Dahret Darraka there are 2 smaller islands which we have no names off at the charts, a couple of miles east also there lies one of the most beautiful dives we have ever done, a habili which has a south plateau and a north point, schooling scalloped hammer heads at both points at the same time! Shoals of jacks, tunas and barracudas, a great wall with lots of black corals and baby white tip reef sharks! The position of the reef however makes it difficult for diving in rough seas since it provides no shelter at all...
 

Shaab Ambar:
 
Shaab Ambar is a massive reef system stretching over 5nm with a lagoon in the middle that is perfect for a night dive at overnight mooring, at the south east however lies a very nice plateau, a vast sandy area of which when there is a mild current the shoals of unicorn surgeon fish are mindless if divers, great barracudas coming to catch the weaker fish and the giant dog tooth tunas come herding their youngsters, not forgetting the weary garden eels and the small white tip reef sharks, at the drop off when the current permits one will often be rewarded with the super stars, schooling scalloped hammer heads and the odd grey reef shark!
 

Pinnacle:
 
This is a very small habili, just a bit bigger than the small habili at st johns, a very pretty reef which when there are currents hosts shoals of the yellow band fusiliers which in turn attracts the giant trevally and the tunas to feast on this wonderful bait ball, the usual grey reef and white tip reef sharks are around with the casual sighting of the scalloped hammer heads.
The underwater scenery is great with a very pretty cave at the 35m mark, a large room with enough ambient light and no place without direct visual contact with the entrance...

Shaab Jumna:
 
Jumna is a reef 15nm outside port suakin which is marked with a beacon, a lovely reef with the usual schooling fish and a very impressive topography, crevices and canyons all over the wall and one of the biggest schools of scalloped hammer heads...

Shaab Luka:
 
This is a big reef system stretching over 3nm with a great lagoon up at the northern tip where a big pod of dolphins have the habit to play, access to this lagoon is impossible for the boat however, the reef is marked with a big metal wreck stuck at the west wall, it is allegedly called Luka, hence the name of the reef, the dive here is at the south western wall, where a steep reef wall hosts the multitude of  red sea reef fish, white tip reef sharks are common also, to our surprise we saw a whale shark on one of the dives! Visibility here is a bit lower than usual however...
 

Hindigidir:
 
This is a small sandy island masked with a beacon and what looks like some old out of use metal buildings, the dive here is at the south point, jumping south east one would drift down south towards a sharp point where if the current permits the first part of the dive is spent out in the blue waiting for the common school of hammer heads, back at the main reef the usual suspects are around, black fin barracudas, dog tooth tunas and the snapper family... a lovely reef wall encrusted with a hard and some soft corals.
 

Protector:
 
This is another large reef barrier with an enclosed lagoon almost right in the middle, the dive is at the south point where an elongated reef stretches for few hundred meters at a depth of 2m before it slopes gently to  form some of the most fantastic under water scenery, a very thin plateau stretches around 200m sloping gently down south, the sides drop down where the east wall has some dramatic scenery of underwater topography, the plateau reaches around 45m before it steeps into the abyss, after spending the time in the blue drifting south where a big chance to see some spotted eagle rays, the common hammer head school and some casual grey reef sharks, back at the plateau one might struggle to maintain position since there is a north eastern current present most of the time, just like hay stacks of the most colourful soft corals, white tip reef sharks are common, the usual red ease fish and a resident school of the clumsy but awesome looking bump head parrot fish.
