Dahab, Egypt

Learn to dive - basic accom. (8 days / 7 nights. Incl. 4 dives)

The diving
Start the journey of a lifetime with PADI's Open Water Diver Course - the single most popular diving course in the world! Conditions in Dahab are excellent for beginners - warm water, little or absolutely no current and amazing visibility. Small groups and beautiful scenery will be your everyday experience in this special place.

The contrast between touristic Sharm El Sheikh further South and Dahab, is nothing less than extreme. Here you will find old school backpacker hippies retreating with a combination of Yoga, rock climbing and world class diving, no hassle and no stress. Just what you want your dive holiday to be.

Together with your instructor, you will have a fun, safe and different course that will be something to remember.

Historically, most visitors to Dahab have been backpackers traveling independently, staying in the hostels and Bedouin camps. This has made the little fishermen town develop into an international good feel place. With its bohemian feel of hippie and Bedouin, Dahab is a beautiful mix of peace seeking travelers, creating an extraordinary atmosphere of relaxation and friendliness.

Your accommodation (3 star hotel or camp)
Most things are flexible in Dahab, and that includes your accommodation! The main option is a Bedouin Camp, popular with backpackers and yogahippies since the 70s. It is very low key and basic, with proper bedouin hangout areas just steps from the beach. And it’s just 150m up the beach to your dive resort,  run by one of the most inspiring women in Dahab. Tanis is a Canadian woman who settled in Dahab many years ago. Her love and care for Egypt is truly inspiring and her daily presence at the camp and dive school calls for hours of interesting conversation and adds a catching calmness and charm to the whole place. You can also upgrade to sea view rooms with a swimming pool and breakfast included, right at the dive resort itself. Either way, you’re in great hands with friendly people.

Your room:

Your backpacker room at Sindbad camp is simple but clean and cozy. Twin or double beds, with A/C. Upgraded rooms are right next to the dive centre in the 3-star Dahab Hotel with swimming pool and has breakfast included.
