Welcome to Dahab

Dahab is located on the eastern side of the Sinai Peninsula, directly on the Gulf of Aqaba, about half-way between Sharm-el-Sheikh in the south and Taba in the north. The distance between Sharm and Dahab is about 90 km and takes only one hour of travel time. The road is in good condition and leads through impressive and colourful mountains to a pass that is situated at 650 metres above sea level. From here it is only 30 km until you reach Dahab (the picture shows the old, single lane road).

Medinah Bay

The translation of the arabic word “Dahab“ means “gold“. To explain this name you have the choice between different legends. The most plausible explanation you can witness yourself every day, when the sun sets behind the mountains in the most beautiful colours, which leave a golden glance on the surface of the Red Sea.

Promenade

Originally, Dahab was an oasis in the past, which was frequented by the local Bedouin. Nowadays it is a prospering place the size of a village, where the past collides with the present, yet seemingly melting.

Spices

Although most of the shops are run by Egyptians, the Bedouin have integrated themselves discreetly into the local business life. The general rule is not to be in a hurry. The daily life is very calm, and apparently this aspect is responsible for the attraction of this location.

Shishas

The western world is so fast, that the term deceleration, before it could be realized, seems to be obsolete.
In Dahab, the traveller can enjoy idle pleasures in a variety of ways. You can lay down on the beach, enjoy the view, go for a swim or for a walk, read a book, or even better: go diving!

Dahab – Mashraba

Diving in Dahab has become a tradition. The coral reefs along the coastline with their natural and comfortable entry and exit areas are inviting to extended explorations of the underwater world. In the Gulf of Aqaba there is no current worth mentioning, and you dive along the coastline. Dahab offers about 30 dive sites worth visiting.

Promenade & Diving

For many people, scuba diving is one of the most enjoyable recreational activities. The diving conditions in Dahab are attractive for both beginners an experienced divers. Depending on the level of education and experience, you can explore different depth ranges. There is always something to see, and the coral reefs grow from about 40-50m depth all the way up to the surface, sometimes in steps, sometimes on steep and rather vertical walls.

Blue Hole

Equally famous and notorious, because it attracts many people to dive too deep here. For recreational divers it is the most colourful drop-off Dahab has to offer.

Scuba diving can be divided into two different approaches, recreational diving and technical diving. Recreational diving enables every individual to spend a certain amount of time under water with a single tank, until you have to surface. Either the gas supply determines when you have to surface, or the frame for the defined maximum allowable time does. If you would like to extend these frame conditions, there is one reasonable alternative to minimize the risk:

Technical Diving.

This term was created at some point in the past, because it focuses on some aspects which are usually not part of the recreational diving education. The diver needs to plan and prepare all dives in more detail, and with more equipment, which adds to more complexity. With an elevated risk potential, you simply need to have a more cautious and detailed approach to your dive. And, of course, the necessary self-confidence and safety that comes with training and experience, in fulfilling more demanding tasks under water. Above all is the diver’s safety, which starts with a solid education.

DIVING INSTRUCTION

A solid education starts with a beginner course that teaches the first steps to be taken. Dive theory and practice are equally important, because they add to each other. To make sure you have an optimum of quality during your education, you should contact a dive center, or diving school with a good reputation, with experienced and professional personnel.

It is highly recommended to learn and dive in small groups of maximum six persons, because all participants need to be taken care of individually, to meet everyone’s learning pace.

Diving itself is an experience that stimulates all senses and all levels of the human conscience, so every person needs to have the opportunity from the very start, to get a feeling for their own pace.

Water has its own rules, and we as humans have to learn how to adapt to these rules. As opposed to all marine life, we are not able anymore to live and breathe under water. Our organism has adapted to the life conditions on the planet’s surface, and we need to learn how to use some technical tools which enable us to breathe under water for a limited amount of time.
