The Dive Sites



Visibility and Temperature

The visibility here in Dahab (especially in the north), can go up to 40 meters in summer and, even in winter it’s never less than around 10 to 15 meters.

The water temperature varies from around 21 C in the winter to around 28 C in the summer.


Entries and Exits

Most dives in and around Dahab are shore diving with an easy access. 🙂

This means we can be flexible with our timing and enjoy a surface interval in one of the Bedouin restaurants by the sea.

Boat Diving Safaris are as well available on request


Life and Topography

The Red Sea is world renowned for its superb diving and is home to some of the best, most exhilarating underwater scenery in the world.
Its corals are richly hued in colour, abounding with hundreds of species of fish from the diver’s favourite clown fish, (Nemo’s runaway brother), to moray eels, manta rays and if you`re really lucky you may even see sharks.

The Red Sea itself is very narrow, with a length of 2350km and width of 350km, joining the Mediterranean with the Indian Ocean. The entrance is at a depth of 134m approaching almost 2000m in the Gulf of Aqaba, where Dahab is situated on the Sinai coastline. As part of this coastline, Dahab offers easy shore diving access to what is virtually solid fringing reef.


Confined Water

Our confined water sessions and introductory dives will be done in the Red Sea just a short car ride away from the dive center at the lighthouse area.

It sa very calm bay, with clear water, no waves or currents and a sandy bottom. It s like a swimming pool, just with colourful fish 🙂

And there are facilities like restaurants, shops and rest rooms available.
