Diving in Dahab, Egypt Diving in Dahab

This pearl of the gulf actually consists of two villages; the Bedouin village of Assalah is the southern half, and the business and administrative center of Dahab is the northern half. Dahab means 'gold' in Arabic. In Sinai it means golden sands, turquoise sea, and off-beat cafe life. It is a focus of tourism development, with swaying palms, fine sand and wonderful snorkeling opportunities. About 5 miles from town is the famous Blue Hole, for diving. Towards the Israeli border is the Island of Coral, where the Crusaders built a fort. The remains can still be seen.

This small Bedouin village inside the Gulf of Aqaba, is about 90 kilometers from Sharm el-Sheikh, only a 1 hour drive. It is really easy to travel to Dahab for a day trip to get in a couple of dives, snorkeling, other water sports, or some desert safaris. Because it is inside of the Gulf, surrounded by mountains, this narrow passage is like a wind tunnel, too windy for boats, so most all of the diving is done from shore. All of the dive sites have very easy access, and Dahab is a chilled-out backpackers style atmosphere, that also includes some luxurious resorts. Dahab has excellent hotel accommodations, but also affords less expensive housing in the village by Bedouin camps, along with open-air camping in the desert. The central area in Masbat Bay, is filled with open-air restaurants along the sea-front, where you can find very fresh sea-food, guaranteed to be among the best you ever tasted. Dahab is the hub for technical and free-diving in Egypt.

* Blue Hole

About 8 kilomteres north of town is the famous Blue Hole technical dive site, and The Bells wall dive. From the Bells / Blue Hole, you can take a narrow path along the sea, about 7 kilomters to Abu Galum Bedouin Village, where you will find untouched corals in pristine condition and some easy but beautiful and memorable dives. The dive sites of Abu Galum have a lot of small stuff you will not see in Sharm el-Sheikh, such as frog fish and seahorses. The dive sites in Abu Galum, are only accessible by taking the 7 kilomter journey by camel, because the beach path is a foot path. We offer a day trip to make 2 dives, from Sharm el-Sheikjh, and it is also possible to spend the night in open-air Bedouin tents, to make a 2 or more days jeep/camel diving safari.

This lagoon is the "blue hole" which gives the site its name. A shallow lip at about 6m leads from the lagoon to the outer reef; deep within the hole, an arched passage also links the reef face to the hole itself.
