Marked by a lighthouse this reef only just breaks the surface. The reef is rectangular with strong currents to be found.
If you like turtles then Abington reef is the place where you are likely to see these inquisitive creatures. They are truly delightful and seem to always enjoy having their photograph taken!
The reef is also well known to see schooling hammerhead sharks
Angarosh means 'Mother of Sharks' and is appropriately named because of the number of sharks to be found in this area.
Angarosh has two plateaus, the shallower plateau going down to 25m and another plateau going down to 45m.
Angarosh is a superb dive site to see and take pictures of sharks as they swim effortlessly around you , Also schooling of Barracuda may be seen here but the site is most famous for its Manta Ray.
Some 25 miles North East from Port Sudan the reef here has a plateau at 9metres and a steep drop-off.
This is where Jacques Cousteau and his team mounted an underwater base in order to study the effects of long term underwater stays of a diver once he was fully saturated with all the gases in his body. Hence the underwater expedition called 'Precontinent II' was set up in 1963.
The incredible outcome of this expedition was that once fully saturated, the diver could conceivably stay down forever given enough air to breath but what is truly incredible is that this experiment took place in 1963, by scientists who obviously had knowledge well beyond their years.
The remains of his expedition are still at this site and it is well worth a dive to take a look at the equipment which was left behind.
South of Sha'ab Rumi is a plateau which is about 23m deep. Here you will find numerous sharks, barracudas, jack fish, humphead parrot fish and almost anything else that you can imagine!
Sha'ab Rumi is a 'must' for all visitors!
Sanganeb is found about one and a half hours north of the "Umbria". This reef rises from 800m depth to the surface.
The Sanganeb coral reef is truly a beautiful place to dive or snorkel. The reef itself, has one of the richest coral displays in the Red Sea.
The British built lighthouse is situated on the reef and close by there are caves and gullies for the avid diver to visit. There are two Sudanese men who take it in turns to live in the lighthouse (they rotate every 4/5 weeks) and love to welcome visitors. You can climb to the top of the lighthouse and look out over the coral reef which is crystal clear and an incredible sight to see.
Every person who has climbed the lighthouse comes back with a different number of stairs that they have climbed - they never seem to agree on the number of stairs that are in the lighthouse
You do not have to dive deeply to see the rich sea life and this is why Sanganeb is also great for snorkelling.
The South plateau on Sanganeb is a fabulous dive and soft and hard corals with schooling Jack, Barracuda, Tuna and Snapper are abundant. Grey reef sharks cruise close by you with the occasional White Tip reef shark swimming past. There are sometimes Hammerheads, Silky and Oceanic White Tips here as well as occasional Manta rays.
The North plateau is an outstanding dive. This is a deep dive with a lower plateau at 45m where schooling Hammerheads are common. It is normal to see Grey Reef Sharks, Silvertips and White tips here. Where the boat anchors inside the lagoon there is often a huge pod of dolphins and it is normal to snorkel amongst them

This P&O passenger and mail ship is shrouded in mystery. She was sunk in 1869 and only a fraction of the gold she was carrying has been recovered. The quality of light and abundance of sponge and table corals make her a favourite with underwater photographers.
This wreck is a favourite with divers from all over the world, although some consider her a war grave. The Thistlegorm was a World War 2 army cargo ship heading to supply the British 8th Army in North Africa. She was packed to the gills with machinery and ammunition when a German bomber sank her on 6 October 1941.
Translated from Arabic, Nuhas means brass - a name given to the reef by local fishermen after it claimed a ship carrying a cargo of brass.
