Year Round


UD Rating – 3 Star


Offers trips to the north and south of Sudan.

Cassiopeia is a beautiful 5 star steel motor yacht which will take you on a 7 night cruise around North and South Sudan.

Only fifteen minutes from the airport you will board Cassiopeia at Port Sudan and embark upon a seven night cruise. You will be able to enjoy up to four dives a day with at least two night dives during your trip. With four levels this boat is able to accommodate twenty six passengers with ease and with a European salon, an Arabian café and a one hundred square metre sun deck you will never be short of places to relax onboard. The fact that this boat is larger than many others means that the sail is very smooth and can reach each dive site easier and quicker to allow each guest more time exploring. You will never be short of things to see as on many of these dives you will encounter hammerhead sharks, pristine wrecks and stunning coral reefs to name a few.

Cassiopeia has thirteen cabins all with en-suite facilities and air conditioning. It has a large air conditioned lounge area, known as the European salon which has an LCD TV/VCR, DVD and a CD player. The Arabian café has a very oriental feel about it with traditional Arabic music playing in the background, you may enjoy relaxing with a shisha (waterpipe) or just with a tea and coffee. The sun deck is one hundred square metres with comfortable deck chairs and cushioned seats. There is also a covered deck in front of the salon where guests may relax in between dives and in the evening. The large dive deck and platform enables guests to have more than enough space to prepare for all of their diving adventures. With two handheld showers to rinse off afterwards and a bathroom for simplicity.
