Travel, Explore and Dive Dahab, Egypt!

Not only is Egypt home of the world’s oldest civilization, but also a world class diving destination! It provides crystal clear waters with beautiful coves, an abundance of marine life, incredible walls with sheltered reefs, pinnacles, pristine corals and ancient wrecks that all lie just beyond the shore.

Egypt is more than just great diving and history, but also offers amazing adventures, such as quadbiking through the Sinai desert, camel safaris, a felucca ride on the Nile river, rock climbing in the Sinai, desert trekking, a welcoming and friendly Bedouin community, the best freediving hotspot on Earth, AND a place for any kind of traveler.

Enjoy seeing one of the 7 wonders of the world!

All of this, and more, is available to you when you go on this trip!

What’s the diving like in Dahab, Egypt?

Ummm AMAZING!! This is world-class-diving. The dive sites in Dahab include the famous Blue Hole, the Canyon, Coral Gardens, Eel garden, Lighthouse reef, The Island and the world famous Thistlegorm Wreck!!

These are dive sites that even keep the most experience divers excited!!

So maybe even consider doing your PADI Advanced Open Water Diver course WHILE YOU ARE THERE!!!

OK Great, but where do I stay?

We will be staying in a traditional and authentic Dahab Camp that supplies plenty of hospitality and a good vibe. If you’re looking for a good time relaxing on the seafront in a nice Bedouin camp atmosphere and don’t mind small, clean and simple rooms. We have the biggest swimming pool right in front of us, it’s called the Red Sea and contains some of the most beautiful creatures on Earth. Early morning swims and snorkeling await you.

Our camp offers a location that dreams are made of. Right on the beach, with a view across the Gulf of Aqaba to Saudi Arabia, that is clearly visible on the horizon. There is almost always a gentle cooling breeze that helps to ward off the heat of the glowing Egyptian sun.

We have a camp restaurant that is open from early in the morning till early evening. It is not haute cuisine, but very tasty and boasts the best tea in Dahab. (BigB approved!)

If you are looking for something a little more upmarket, we offer higher-end options! We have a beautiful 3 star guesthouse available as well as a very styling hotel in Dahab.

It is said that on Mt Sinai, Moses received the 10 Commandments. this is a full day experience.

Or Spend a full day in Wadi Qnai near Dahab, and try rock climbing! If you don't know how, you can learn in this fantastic outdoor classroom. It beats indoor climbing any day! The emphasis is on fun, but you will also learn about climbing systems and movement in a top Rope setting.
