#1 - Umbria Wreck
Sudan, Port Sudan
The wreck "Umbria" has a cargo of 360.000 bombs that makes the exploring of the wreck still more exciting. The "Umbria" is one of the most famous sunken ships in the world. Lying in the shelter of Wingate Reef, just outside Port Sudan and largely unaffected by currents and tides, it is within easy reach of Port Sudan harbour. The wreck lies at an angle on her port side with her starboard davits breaking the surface. At a maximum depth of 36m, the Umbria is shallow by most wreck divers' standards. Snorkelers will be able to explore much of the wreck's upper area while scuba divers will benefit from the extended bottom time possible on the ship's shallower sections. With plenty of light and good visibility, entering most of the ship is easy. The hull itself is completely intact, if heavily encrusted with marine life, and can be explored internally and externally along its entire length. Port Sudan is the main port of the country. Dive access by boat, though facilities in this country for divers are limited!
#2 - Winegate Reef East
Sudan, Port Sudan
A very classical dive of the area. East part of Winegate Reef, 6 nautical miles east northeast of Port Sudan. There is an automatic navigation light just near the dive site on the reef.
