The UAE’s much-loved expert diving company Al Boom Diving is now offering excursions well beyond the traditional speedboat routes of these parts.
Travel-loving divers (specifically those with advanced open water certification or open water divers with at least 50 logged dives) will be able to check out sites running from north to south, with three dives and a free night dive every day. Untouched coral formations, deep drop-offs and a huge variety of marine life (including sharks) are some of the region’s biggest drawing points for underwater explorers. The price includes seven nights full board with double cabins, a minimum of two dive guides, tanks, weights, shisha, bed linen and towels, Wi-Fi where available and a Sudanese visa. Rates exclude, among other things, flights. Visit Al Boom’s website for the full run-down.
