BECAUSE WE DO THINGS DIFFERENTLY
Our guest prices are based on being truly the best in the business for the value you are getting.
BEST LOCATION FOR A DIVE CENTRE
We all know that location really does matter! We are based in the heart of Dahab, 10 minutes walk from everything.
Fewer divers in each group ensures more direct attention from the guide, maximizing safety and comfort. We make sure we do our best to guarantee you have a fantastic time.
We employ a mix of experienced local diving instructors to ensure we have an unbeatable knowledge of the area.
All our facilities are simple and comfortable. They include diving counter, classrooms, large washing/drying area and secure storage lockers. We’ve deliberately concentrated on making everything in the centre fit every diver’s individual needs. We’ve also fitted spacious bathrooms with hot showers. After diving you can relax in our comfortable lounge or private beach areas which come with free WiFi to allow our guests to fully enjoy their experience with us. We also have a restaurant that caters for all needs, from fresh juices and sandwiches to full meals.
All of our diving equipment is very simple to use for both beginners and professionals. We keep a record of all regular maintenance and checks.
WE STICK TO OUR PRINCIPLES: SAFETY – STANDARDS – ENVIRONMET
Your safety is our number one priority. We employ only certified experienced instructors and guides with exemplary interpersonal skills, who provide environmental dive briefings and follow local diving agreements. Each of our diving trips must have a First Aid box with portable emergency oxygen cylinder. We have an easy emergency information board plus a spare box in case of any lost/forgotten/malfunctioning equipment. All of our daily diving programs are planned according to the weather and environmental considerations, including tides and surface conditions, to ensure a safe, fun adventure.
