Come Freediving in Dahab!

Welcome to Dahab, the freediver’s paradise.

This small Bedouin town has become the mecca of the freediving world. You’ll find excellent sea conditions, world-class coaches and instructors, and every level of freediver from beginner to world champion. And you will be amazed at what we can help you achieve on a single breath of air.

Come freedive in this incredible and beautiful place where you can discover and challenge yourself with freediving.

Freedivers freediving in Dahab's Blue Hole - a magnet for freedivers worldwide

So what exactly is freediving? In essence, diving down on a single breath of air. And why is Dahab so famous for freediving? For several reasons, but mainly because of our beautiful Blue Hole.

Excellent sea conditions and deep depths in Dahab’s Blue Hole have enabled many freedivers to set national and international records. The 70 meter wide hole within the reef table drops vertically to 90 meters, making it one of the best place in the world to train for freediving. Embankments of hard and soft coral gently slope down, and a colorful shallow coral saddle links the hole to the open sea. The marine life is fantastic with reef fish, pelagic fish, turtles and rays, and it is rare to spot sharks in this part of the Red Sea. You’ll love it!

Learn How To Freedive

We’d love to introduce you to freediving! You can do AIDA and PADI Beginner courses, or you can fast-track your freediving and do Beginner and Advanced on a 1 week holiday

Beginner Freediving Course

Take your first step into freediving. You don’t need any previous experience in snorkeling or scuba diving. During this 2-3 day course, you will learn breathing and finning techniques, plus safety procedures which will enable you to dive to 16 meters and hold your breath over 1:30 minutes.

Advanced Monofin Training

40-50% more power, longer dynamics, fewer kicks and deeper dives – at some point, most freedivers switch to a monofin.

Learn stretch and strength exercises, and techniques for fluid monofin freediving. Open Water training can be mixed with training sessions – in fact, your muscles will thank you for this!

Freediving Logistics Support

Many freedivers on their way to Dahab are very experienced, and need just logistics support. Buoys, weights, extra equipment, rinse and storage, extra safety divers or instructors, trip planning, etc… ask us about whatever you need

Haha just came across this picture in our archives. 

This is Ali on the last day of his PADI Freediver course. We were doing fun freediving along the reef in Lighthouse after his training sessions (he passed his course with flying colors). 

He was (still is!) sooooo excited to learn how to freedive properly, he had been freediving for a while but wanted to learn how to do it better and safer! His love and enthusiasm for being underwater was inspiring to say the least.

Way to go Ali, we hope to see you soon!! xx
