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.
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
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.
This 1 week holiday includes your Beginner Freediving course, plus 3 days freediving training. And if your freediving is going really well, you can upgrade your training days to the Advanced Freediver course. Also includes accommodation and airport transfers
Advanced Freediving Courses
Advance your skills and techniques, including equalisation techniques, to help you dive deeper. You can do Advanced and Master Freediving Courses, as well as specialities such as Monofin and Advanced Equalisation.
Learn advanced equalisation, free-falling techniques, and expand your knowledge of physiology and physics.
On this 3 day course you will learn to dive to 20-30m and hold your breath for +2 minutes, taking your freediving to a whole new level.
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!
Come train with us in Dahab! Your freediving courses give you knowledge, key skills and techniques, but it’s your everyday freedive training that will help you become a great freediver. Spend time with an instructor working on key goals for a week, a weekend, a month or more!
This is for all our Cairo Freedivers! We know you only have a weekend at a time, and we love that you travel all this way to get to Dahab to train, so we’ll help you make the most of it!
You’ve done your freediving courses and now your ready to train! Your instructor will help you set goals, coach you in the water and adjust your training to suit your level and progress. Includes accommodation and airport transfers
