Royal Evolution Quick Pitch

M/S Royal Evolution is one of the most sophisticated & high-tech liveaboards in the Red Sea area and unique, where no compromise in safety, facilities, and professionalism in diving services is found, built according to SOLAS and under the full survey of the international surveyor Bureau Veritas.

 

Dive Overview

The Red Sea, having a length of 2350 km and a width of 350 km at its widest point, joining the Mediterranean Sea to the Indian Ocean. Despite the fact that it is so narrow, it is, therefore, a very deep sea, reaching almost 3000 meters in the central area and dropping 600-800 meters in many points near the reef: a wall of water where scuba divers find themselves swimming. Sudan area experienced a certain amount of diving tourism. Sudanese waters are possibly the most beautiful in the Red Sea and are certainly wildest. Every trip to Sudan has the aura of adventure and every dive the thrill of meeting sharks and large pelagics. The Sudanese reefs rise like mushrooms from the considerable depths.
