Aggressor Adventures has added another Red Sea scuba diving liveaboards with the addition of the Red Sea RE Aggressor, formerly the MS Royal Evolution., a 24-person vessel which will cover Sudan and the Egyptian Deep South. The new Red Sea RE brings Aggressor’s Red Sea fleet up to three vessels operating in the Red Sea in Egypt and now Sudan, and is complemented by its Luxor to Aswan Nile river cruises.
From January 2022, The Red Sea RE Aggressor will offer three unique itineraries to Sudan, Deep South Sudan and Deep South Egypt, all of which will depart and return from Marsa Alam’s Port Ghalib.
‘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,’ said Wayne Brown, Aggressor Adventures Chairman & CEO.’“We’ll have dives with schooling hammerheads, thresher, grey reef and silky sharks and whale sharks, all with a backdrop of amazing soft corals. Who could ask for anything more?’
The ‘Deep South Egypt’ itineraries are eight days in length and will begin the diving at St. John’s and Dangerous reefs, before spending two days spent at Zabargad and Rocky Islands, where strong currents often draw manta rays, dolphins and silvertip sharks. Dives at Fury Shoal and Dolphin House will complete the itinerary before returning to Port Ghalib
The fourteen-day ‘Sudan’ itineraries will see guest making check dives at Fury Shoal before cruising south to the Umbria Wreck and the Sanganeb Plateau. One special highlight of the intinerary will Sha’ab Rumi, the site of Jacques Cousteau’s Conshelf II underwater habitat, and where hammerhead, grey and silky shark are often encountered.
The ‘Deep South Sudan’ itineraries, also fourteen days long, are full of ‘one-of-a-kind’ dive adventures. The Red Sea RE Aggressor will depart from Port Gahlib and head to the remote Swakin Islands of Masamarit, Loka and Dahrat Abid. The pristine waters and mostly undiscovered sites offer astounding shark dives with massive schools of hammerheads, whale sharks, 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 before heading back to shore.
‘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,’ said Lisa Stierwalt, Travel Agent with Aggressor Adventures. ‘Aggressor travel agents can also customize a land program specific to each guest’s wants and needs, complete with private transfers, accommodations, and private guided tours.’
