The Red Sea RE Aggressor hosts up to 24 guests with the finest liveaboard amenities in the southern Red Sea. With this expansion, Aggressor now has three dive yachts operating in Egypt and now to Sudan. The travel company also offers Nile River Cruises from Luxor to Aswan.
Beginning January 2022, the Red Sea RE Aggressor will offer three unique itineraries to Sudan, Deep South Sudan and Deep South Egypt. All Sudan itineraries, along with the Deep South Egypt, depart from and return to Port Ghalib, Egypt, thus avoiding any complexities flying in and out of Sudan itself.
“We are extremely excited to add Sudan to our growing list of destinations. As a shark lover, I get an adrenaline rush just thinking about the addition of the Red Sea RE Aggressor and her southern routes,” says Wayne Brown, Aggressor Adventures Chairman & CEO. “We’ll have dives with schooling hammerheads, thresher, grey reef and silky sharks and whalesharks, all with a backdrop of amazing soft corals. Who could ask for anything more?”
‘Deep South Egypt’ itineraries are eight days and begin diving at St John’s and Dangerous Reefs. Two days are spent at Zabargad and Rocky Islands, where swift currents draw manta rays, dolphins and silvertip sharks. The week commences with stops at Fury Shoal and Dolphin House.
Fourteen-day ‘Sudan’ itineraries have check-out dives at Fury Shoal before cruising south to the Umbria wreck and the Sanganeb Plateau. Sha’ab Rumi is home to Jacques Cousteau’s Conshelf II underwater structures and fantastic hammerhead, grey and silky shark encounters.
‘Deep South Sudan’ 14-day itineraries are truly one-of-a-kind dive adventures. The Red Sea RE Aggressor departs from Port Ghalib to the remote Suakin Islands, including Masamarit, Loka and Dahrat Abid. These pristine waters and mostly undiscovered sites offer astounding shark dives with massive schooling hammerheads, whalesharks, grey and silky sharks. The return route north is just as rewarding with visits to Sha’ab Rumi, Abington Reef, Pfeiffer Reef and St John’s Reef.
“Guests can take their Red Sea RE adventure to the next level by adding a relaxing river cruise on the Nile Queen, or Cairo or Luxor exploration to their itinerary. Aggressor travel agents can also customize a land programme specific to each guest’s wants and needs, complete with private transfers, accommodations, and private guided tours,” says Lisa Stierwalt, Travel Agent with Aggressor Adventures.
