"Amazing" 10 minutes and I had friends for life. The people of dahab and dessert divers are the most welcoming and kind people. It's like once you arrive you will never want to leave!

“Great diving and really amazing staff !” I can highly recommend Desert Diving. Communication pre-travel ran super smooth, we got picked up at the airport, and were met by Tanis the next morning, who sorted out our dives and gave some great recommendations about Dahab. The vibe is super chilled, and besides from the diving, the place offers great climbing experiences in the desert, and yoga-classes at the Lvovich Art Cafe across the beach (which had really great food too). Dahab is a really nice city, loads of great restaurants with fair prices. People are super friendly, and the service is really good. For non-divers, there’s great snorkelling, kite or windsurfing. Thank you so much for a great week, Tanis, Said, Khaled and Sameh.
