Splendours of Reefs and Snorkeling

Welcome

Welcome to the Sudanese Red sea. This leaflet will help you to discover one of the outstanding natural attractions of the Sudan .

 The Coral Reefs for many Sudanese and many visitors are unknown treasures . Many people share the thrill and enthusiasm of this world full of life and full of colours in many combinations and patterns .

           And as it is now easier to see what is there, whether from a glass bottom boat , by goggling with a mask and snorkel , or by diving using compressed air – why not take a look for yourself? You are most welcome . The most impressive coral growth and the richest fish life can be observed on the outside rim , but the protected are inside also offers many interesting habitats and organism communities .

 There are barrier reefs, these are separated from the coast and the fringing reef by a ship channel , generally  about 100 m , but locally up to 400 m deep , and 2-4 km wide . The barriers range from narrow discontinuous reef walls , only several tens to a few hundred meters wide to platforms of up to 14 km wide which are dotted with patch reefs and depressions of several tens of meters depth . Towartit and Wingate Reefs are examples of this reef type.

 Other  type of reefs are the atolls , reef platforms located offshore and surrounded by waters of several hundred meters depth. The horizontal dimensions are hundred of meters  to a few kilometers . Steep flanks rise to a very shallow reef rim which encloses lagoons several tens of meters deep .

Sanganeb and Shaab Rumi are examples often visited . All types of reefs offer shallow and / or protected areas for snorkelers and exciting sites for divers in close proximity . Mangroves and mangrove forests that harbour a diverse fauna are scattered along  the Red sea coast to the south of Port Sudan .


SNORKELINLG : THE EASY WAY TO AN EXCITNG EXPERIENCE

Basic rule: Never go alone !A partner can assist you in minor emergencies and go for help in bigger ones and , since the reefs of Sudan as  a rule are  very lonely places , one could easily be forgotten without a partner.  However , choose your partner carefully.

Is snorkeling dangerous ? Once basic precautions have been taken it is less dangerous than riding a bicycle : no technical failures occur and there are no reckless divers under water .
