Thank's Tim. Will google that island. Have you been to any other resorts in the same or other atolls? Would you mind to give a brief comparison?

Thank's for the advice. I know of Kuredu and it is certainly one of the islands I have looked on it has a very good rep. diving wise in Scandinavia (where I'm from). However as you indicate, the house reef might not be on par with the best in the Maldives. And that rules it out. Have you visited any other islands?
Maldives seems to be a place which it's really hard to find a general consensus on.
In a broader sense, are there any differences between the atolls, diving wise? Or are they all more or less the same? My wife went to Kaninfinolhu in N Male 25 years ago and have always raved about how good it was (only surpassed by Sipadan and the Sudanese Red Sea according to her). Now I understand the 98 El Nino took its toll and that still today, it's not what it was. But some areas were less affected and coral can grow pretty fast under ideal circumstances...

If you won a trip from a specific boat it's hard to be picky with the itinerary, I guess you have to chose from what they offer. I've dived pretty extensively in both Egypt and Sudan, from liveabaords departing out of both Egyptian ports and Port Sudan. Inmo Sudan generally offers superior diving to anything you can find in Egypt. More diversity, bigger numbers, more big fish and very few divers. But it is less comfortable and more expensive. I'm not updated on the safety right now and you'll have to consult your embassy and others who have been there recently (there are a lot of people who have never been with a lot of opinions). All I can say is that I have never felt unsafe in Port Sudan or Egypt.

Long time ago I was there. Back then we used to fly from Cairo to Port Sudan on Sudan Air. Sometimes delays, once a pretty run-down Yak. But most of the time a fairly modern Airbus.
