Boat Excursions

The fish restaurants near Port Sudan's fish market run glass-bottom boat trips. During the 30-minute outing, the boat chugs around the lagoon and you’re bound to see plenty of rainbow-coloured fish species.


The reefs off Port Sudan offer some of the best diving in the Red Sea. Outstanding marine life, dramatic seascapes, atmospheric wrecks and a true sense of wilderness – it's impossible to be bored.

For lack of a reliable land-based dive centre, the only way to explore the area is by live-aboard boat. All live-aboard boats depart from Port Sudan and make either one-week or 10- to 12-day trips along the coast, offering a variety of itineraries.
