The best time to dive in Sudan is from March to June or October to November. However, the Red Sea can be dived by liveaboard year-round, and the best time to dive this Middle Eastern region is a matter of personal preference. Do keep in mind that many liveaboards cut back departures in Sudan between July and September. December to February is the winter in Sudan. During these months, the water is quite cold, dipping to 73˚F (23˚C). However, during the winter months, you’ll have the best chance at spotting hammerhead sharks. December to February also boasts the best visibility in the Red Sea. Finally, the winter months represent the windy season, meaning that surface conditions may become quite rough. March to June are the spring months in Sudan. At this time, the air and water temperatures are both moderately warm, offering a fantastic balance. However, March to May is high season for diving in Sudan, so be sure to book ahead for the best deals. July to September are the low season for the Red Sea. Air temperatures reach uncomfortable levels for outside activity. Most liveaboard boats follow the marine life north into Egypt during these months. Finally, October to November is the autumn season in Sudan. Again, air and sea temperatures balance for comfort above and below the surface. These months are also the best time to spot thresher sharks and manta rays throughout Sudanese waters. Much like the spring months, liveaboards in Sudan can sell out quickly for this time period.
