Our PADI Dive courses in Dahab are tailored to the individual to give you a safe, relaxed and enjoyable experience.

We have an exceptional reputation for Divemaster training, offering you the opportunity of an internship, leading to a qualification allowing you to seek work world-wide. We have thousands of happy divers out there, all trained by the Reef 2000 team.

Many are happy to just blow a few bubbles on holiday and a good few are climbing the PADI ladder and are going for all PADI dive courses in Dahab.

We feel we have to warn you however that a few of our customers have never left and are still with us working as Divemasters and Instructors. Reef 2000 cannot be held responsible for wayward sons and daughters who swap the real life for a wet suit and come to live in the middle of a desert. It’s not our fault, we are only doing our job and we don’t speak to irate parents, employers or taxmen.

Below is a comprehensive list every Padi dive course in Dahab so whichever dive course you need its available at Reef 2000 Dive Club.

PADI Nitrox Dive courses in Dahab

Build your bottom time, and build your confidence, as you learn that diving with enriched air isn’t rocket science or difficult!

The PADI Enriched Air Dive course is designed to teach you the procedures for safe recreational no-decompression diving with enriched air. The course covers the equipment and procedural concerns involving enriched air. You’ll learn how to plan dives and determine your no-decompression limits and your oxygen exposure limits with enriched air. You’ll learn the proper procedures for obtaining enriched air as well as the hazards associated with handling and diving with enriched air. This is a theory only course but you will receive 2 Nirox tanks to be used in your guided dive package.
